~I Promise to Love You...Even Through Branding Season~

Think About It

| Dr. David Lenderts | Lifestyles
One of the really important qualities to develop as we go along in life is the ability to recognize wisdom and truth wherever we may find it and to accept it as such.  Each of us may gain a special insight into something by being watchful in this way. I could offer that I have sought such knowledge in Chinese philosophy including Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism, and the I Ching, but, actually, I am still waiting to do that.

Jess was a tough old cobb. When you worked for him, you worked his way and on his time. I suppose that’s the way it should be. Whether you’re paid or volunteer, if you make the pledge to work for the man, you work his way, not how you think he ought to work gatherin’ and brandin’. Someone wrote a long time ago, you work for the brand.

   The Eads Senior Citizens who came to the monthly lunch thoroughly enjoyed the beef brisket that Rod and Dana Brown donated to the group.  Darryl Stolzenberger smoked the brisket for Gail to serve.  She also made warm wheat rolls and baked cheese hash brown casserole.  Joyce Berry gave us an update on the future Senior Center across the street which is now two vacant gutted brick building.  She said that Cindy McCloud is working on some new grants.  Next month, Gail Voss, our director said she will fry the chickens and make gravy and Joyce Berry volunteered to make mashed potatoes.  I remember that in the past June Blooding often made those potatoes.  Bless her heart. Here are three important dates: Wednesday, July 5th is the Sage meal gathering to eat together at noon at the Center.

As most of you know, I was involved in a crazy accident this past week. With this so fresh on my mind, I decided to scrap my planned article and continue with a more important topic. I would like to take this week to thank everybody who helped us. Strangers, volunteers, first responders, etc. Thank you!

As I sit here typing my article for the week, I can’t help but notice my lack of focus. I begin to type an idea, and end up deleting it halfway through. Instead of fighting this constant battle, I have decided to type about what is truly on my mind, not willingly. Just as most young adults experience at this age, I am getting my wisdom teeth! What a lovely road this is. When I was in high school, my top wisdom teeth snuggled their way into my mouth and have been living there comfortably. There were no aches nor pains; instead, they were humble and quiet. On the other hand, the second experience is not the same. So here is to you, the annoying, unwelcome, and intrusive guest in my mouth.

Out in Bill Dawson’s old metal ranch barn, just east of where the ranch house was nestled in a grove of native cottonwoods, we had a 3-day meeting in what’s called the Council Room.
