Is Everyone Rich?

On March 1, 2008 By

Do you think that everyone who reads your magazine is rich? You print lots of articles about expensive things like the champagne and oysters. (Winter ‘07) Do you think people around here eat like that? The only tuxedos I have seen are at weddings. You people need to get real about how people really live in Grayson Co. and write more things for the average person.

Letters and More Letters

On March 1, 2008 By

I’ve got a bone to pick with you. For all these years, I thought the ventriloquists were really singing and drinking water at the same time. Now I find out they use a trick glass! I will forgive you if you will invite my wife and me to the next big party you throw. We loved the piece on New Year’s Eve.

Don’t print my name because I don’t want to have to listen to the guys at work give me a hard time about this, but I like the recipes! Yeah, I’m a rough tough refrigeration repairman who likes to hunt and fish and cook. Chef Cathy’s recipes are a blast to try out and I have made at least one from every issue of your magazine. Keep them coming.

I made Ray Bledsoe’s Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe (Winter ‘07) and WOW! I made some serious brownie points when I brought these cookies in to work! They were gone before lunchtime.

I recently moved south out of the Texoma area but I come back to visit family and friends as often as I can. My mother bought me a gift subscription to your magazine and I’m tickled to be getting it; it’s one more way to help me stay connected to my hometown. When I received the last issue, the anniversary issue, I was thrilled to read the article about Mr. Willie Riles.

Ten Thousand Words

On March 1, 2008 By

In 1921 Fred R. Barnard in the advertising journal Printer’s Ink first coined the phrase “One Look is Worth A Thousand Words.” He later rephrased the ad headline to read, “One Picture is Worth Ten Thousand Words,” and credited it to an ancient Chinese proverb. The only thing ancient about the line was that he had made it up six years earlier. Regardless, I get his meaning.

I bought a book off the discount rack at a local bookstore not long ago entitled Quintessence: The Quality of Having IT. On the jacket fly, the author explained the book’s purpose. “This a book about the objects of this world that transcend their form and function, that offer more to us than we ask of them—that rise above themselves to assume iconic stature.”

Like all good stories, musician Ruby Allmond’s career had three distinct parts. First was the struggle to gain recognition as a performer, then came three decades as a songwriter, with several Nashville hits, including one top-ten single. No less satisfying was the final phase of defining a legacy.
