There have been times over the past several decades of writing this column on a weekly basis that we have sat before the typewriter - now the computer keyboard - and stared blankly with absolutely no clue as to what words of wisdom we will impart on our readers that will bring them either laughter - or sometimes making them so hopping mad they are all threatening to shoot us on site and then we thought of a transcript of an answer given to a citizen by an attorney at a city meeting one year in the past and were shocked to see that after about a page of answer, the attorney neither answered the question nor paused for a breath of the fresh air that we all need to survive for another day of life that we all so much enjoy as we try to go about our day to day business of working and relaxation and eating to fuel our bodies enough to be able to purchase the fuel for our vehicles in order to take us to the workplace or places of recreation such as Land Between the Lakes where there are camping facilities with nice spots by the water or off in the secluded woods where you can sit around a nice campfire with your friends and family and enjoy some Smores if your grandkids can keep the marshmallows off the ground so he doesn’t step in them and then one begins to think: what in the world are we going to pen this week.
