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 […]

Roads diverging at the pool hall

TV Hagenah Today’s column is a true one (or at least as true as anything dealing with memory can be). When I am asked to speak at graduations or affairs honoring fathers, I often pull this story out and share it with my audience. In fact, it happened in late July more years ago than […]

Taking steps back with homemade stilts

Lynn Moncus If you watched the parade on Route 66 last Saturday, you saw a couple of very tall people striding along on their stilts as if they were accustomed to walking at that height and speed on all occasions. Just watching them walk so easily certainly brought back memories of earlier times when many […]

A maven of motorcycle maddness

TV Hagenah What with the Mother Road Rally and all, I’ve been thinking more and more about getting a motorcycle of my very own. I was thinking about the whole idea of the wind whipping through my hair, the power of the mighty machine throbbing beneath me and … well, the good gas mileage. Surprisingly, […]

Editor a pain, but has a sense of humor

Lynn Moncus This woman from Ima has remained quiet in re Editor Hagenah for as long as possible and now really must see if he has the sense of humor he says he has. Of course, this could be the last column if he’s a little edgy as he prepares it for his paper. At […]

Just learning to talk Texan

TV Hagenah As many of my readers know, I try to be helpful whenever I can make myself available to those that need assistance, and I must be good at helping because so many times shortly after I begin to help, those people whom I help say that everything is fine and they don’t need […]

Rattler brings back memories, history

Lynn Moncus The Rattler Paper Committee, composed of Marian Farmer Knapp, Norma Jean Redhage Crellin, and Nancy Ward Napier, is most definitely to be commended this year for publishing 56 pages of pictures and reading material. By adding some colored pictures, they enhanced the appearance of their already first-class publication. This is one paper that […]

Because we’re shallow, that’s why

TV Hagenah The other day I was visiting with a woman and she said something to the effect that she didn’t understand men. At first I thought I was mumbling again, but then I realized that she wasn’t talking about me specifically but my gender in general. I just shook my head. She is another […]
