Ramblings of the Mad Cow » 2008 » February


At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. 

Albert Schweitzer

  • If someone in a Lowe’s store offers you assistance and they don’t work there, you may be a Texan.
  • If you’ve worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you might be a Texan.
  • If you’ve had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may be a Texan.
  • If ‘Vacation’ means going anywhere south of Dallas for the weekend, you may be a Texan.
  • If you measure distance in hours, you may be a Texan.
  • If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you might be a Texan.
  • If you install security lights on your house and garage, then leave both unlocked, you probably are a Texan.
  • If the speed limit on the highway is 65 mph, you’re going 80 and everybody’s passing you, you may be a Texan.
  • If you actually get these jokes, and share them with all your Texas friends, you are definitely a Texan!
One of my favorite passages from the Bible

1 Corinthians 13Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

A step in the right direction

Props to Verifone for removing the offending document I mentioned the other day.  It’s definitely a step in the right direction.  A coworker said there was something about wireless credit card terminals and hacks on the news last night, did anyone catch it?


So much has happened this week, I hardly know where to begin!  Ok, so the boy child has been having some health issues that came to a head Tuesday afternoon. So we went to Le Bonheur and they admitted him to do surgery.  Without going into all the gory details, he had surgery, got several infusions of clotting factor and is finally back home.  Thanks a million to everyone that sent support, love and prayers.  And we definitely couldn’t have managed without Dad and Paula!  It was great having him help out with Small Fry while her big brother was being taken care of.  You guys rock! 

And so, with that, I return you to your regular type ramblings.
