What’s in a name anyway?

TV Hagenah I was reading in a newspaper the other day that the state of North Dakota was thinking about changing its name. Really! In fact, it has even been brought to the floor of the North Dakota state legislature and they have been discussing it. Their argument is that the reason no one goes […]

Aggie takes over keys of computer

Lynn Moncus When the slave squeaked, “Aggie,” I knew she needed something so I ambled in to see what she wanted. Because she was pointing at the computer, I leapt onto the chair to begin writing this column before she could change her mind. She has had what she calls a cold and has been […]

My wife – weather junkie

TV Hagenah I feel that the current rating system that has been created for television (you know the one. It has a “V” for violence, and “N” for nasty, an “RS” for really stupid….At least, I think those are the ratings.) Anyway, I want to add one for my household. I want a “W” for […]

Rattler alumni share memories

Lynn Moncus Hundreds of Rattler Alumni certainly had the opportunity to amass another collection of memories last weekend during Rattler Reunion.

Dining delights of TV’s dinners

TV Hagenah My wife and I eat out a great deal, so we enjoy the wide variety of restaurants in Tucumcari. My wife contends that we would not eat out so much if I wouldn’t try to cook as often as I do. That being said, I think the attempt at a thing is the […]

A question of non-gayness

TV Hagenah My wife has decided I’m definitely not gay. This insight did not come from the risque magazines that she found around the house when we were first married (I tried to tell her they were left by a previous tenant in the apartment, but she didn’t buy that), it wasn’t because of the […]

Number of years changes but not zest

Lynn Moncus By the time you are reading this, I will have done the unthinkable and changed from 69 to 70! Land sakes alive! Who would have ever thought I’d have lived this long? Who would have ever thought I’d mention being “older than dirt”? Talk about lost youth! Talk about old age! During those […]
