The sixth guideline from symmentropy states that we embellish our stories in many ways to make them have meaning for different audiences with different experiences.

Quotes On Storytelling:

“Memory is not a storage place but a story we tell ourselves in retrospect. As such, it is made of storytelling materials: embroidery and forgery, perplexity and urgency, revelation and darkness.”
Noam Shpancer

HORSE TRADING IN WILLIAMSON COUNTY

HORSE TRADING IN WILLIAMSON COUNTY By Dub Ramsel There were two full time horse traders in Georgetown when I arrived to the County in 1952. Fred Perry lived and had his lot on University Avenue, or Hwy 29 west. It was on the south side of the street near the bridge that crossed the South San Gabriel River. Fred also kept a sorrel stallion for...

Brown vs. The Board of Education

Eons ago, when I was in college, I took a course on a dare. The course was “American Political Thought”. It was taught by Professor Dilly — and she was — a dilly. This particular day she entered the classroom with a pile of books, which she slammed on her desk to immediately get our undivided attention. She then announced, “Yesterday the Supreme Court published a decision which will have more effect on your lives than the Atom Bomb.” She was right. The decision referred...

FARE THEE WELL - THE GRATEFUL DEAD

THE GREATFUL DEAD – FARE THEE WELL - July 5th, 2015 (reflections on their final performance) I didn’t attend any of the FARE THEE WELL shows in Chicago this past weekend. I wasn’t interested. I saw them once in 1971 and was profoundly disappointed albeit a bit puzzled by their erratic talent and lack of professionalism. Was it a good night or bad night? Who knows (but it is noted by Deadheads in the know that it was the last time they performed the Temptations' Second...

End of War

While researching material to write about the honey bee, I saw that Albert Einstein had an interest in bees and wrote about them. This certainly was a sideline for this great German physicist who won a Nobel Prize in 1921. He should be remembered as a great war hero. Einstein had a friend by the name of Niels Bohr who was a Danish physicist and who also won a Nobel Prize in 1922. The two obviously maintained a friendship for many years to come. Migrating to the U.S. in...

Memorial Day Memories

We always called it “Decoration Day”. School was dismissed for the year and we looked forward to a summer of freedom. Decorating the graves at “Violet Hill” our local cemetery was always special. Most of our relations were buried in Kansas but we had graves of friends of our parents to decorate. We always used flowers from my mother’s garden - mostly peonies and spring flowers. We always went to the local parade first. It was small but meaningful. Sometimes my father...

Extension to Horrors Of War

As Frank and I were bringing food to these sad people, our use of the main highway became a problem. The problem was the crowds of people. This highway was the broad road going East to West through the middle of the Ruhr Valley. On both roadsides German solders were surrendering with hands over heads. As they were trained, not one word was uttered. I later learned that they were intent to be prisoners of the Allies and the not the Russians, who were advancing from the...

Winter Activities

I grew up in the City, so don’t remember doing much of the fun stuff of winter like sliding and outdoor skating but once I was married, we lived in the country and took up skiing. I really never got very far off the novice slopes, but had fun watching my husband and 3 sons zipping by while tending to our small daughter and we all enjoyed the “apres-ski” routine. It was a good family sport which I loved but then I always liked winter. It makes me feel more alive and...
