I Was Quoted...

In this article on the website of the Kansas City Star.  They failed to mention the words  I said when my teeth were clenched.

How about that? All the way down here in Kansas City, too.

Maybe it's because we have spent some time together but - I really had no problems reading between the lines.

I felt the clenched teeth reverberating way up here in Maine!

Those rolls are made with mashed potatoes! I can send you the recipe or if you have the old red Betty Crocker recipe book they are on page72, potato refrigerator rolls. I somehow managed to mess them up for Christmas dinner (after making them for 30 years) and my family almost hung me out on the back of the barn!

Cliff, I am glad you told them like it was. You were done in really bad by that flooding.

I wouldn't put any money on the Corp. Our Friendswood home has flooded three times now. Our flood when we lived there in 1979 put three feet of water in the house.

When we moved in back in 1976 they had a flood control plan. But nature lovers wanted to save trees. So there went the first (for us plan)

Sometimes there was funding approved for new plans but there was always some reason to never pursue them. Things are still in the planning stage now. We moved up here on a hill in 1999 when I retired.

In case you say why did we buy in the low land, we were almost a mile from the creek and of course couldn't see it from home.

Clear Lake backs up during huricanes and heavy rains and then our creek, Clear Creek, couldn't drain as water was backing up into it. Water from our flood stretched the creek out about four miles wide in places!

Need a mouth guard so your teeth don't break from the pressure?
