The Horse Trader

Guest written by our friend Hipolito Hickman

I never get tired of watching old Andy Griffith episodes. Every character is irresistibly quirky and funny, and the story lines are as entertaining today as they were when the show first aired in the 1960s. My favorite episodes are the ones where Sheriff Andy Taylor tries to teach young Opie a lesson, and the best by far is one where Andy learns a lesson too.

In “The Horse Trader,” Sheriff Taylor tries to sell the town's old cannon by exaggerating the historical value of the rusty relic to an antique dealer. The dealer agrees to buy the cannon for $175 after hearing Andy's tall tale about how much it is worth. Little Opie is a witness to Andy's lapse in good behavior.

Meanwhile, Opie is upset to discover that he got the bad end of the deal when he traded his cap pistol for some “licorice seeds.” The little boy tries to make his own devious deal by attempting to swap the licorice seeds for roller skates. Always the good father, Andy scolds his son for not following the Golden Rule, and is quickly reminded that he had been dishonest himself in the sale of the cannon.

That classic episode first ran in 1961, but my children and I still watch the show's reruns on DIRECT.TV today. Lessons about the Golden Rule never grow old, and neither do these wonderful characters.

first night at work

Tonight is my first night of my part time job at my friends nursing home. It was not bad at all. The old folks are not that hard to put to their. So far I've done putting them all to sleep and was just checking them every now and then.I love my job. I love the feeling that I had a chance to help somebody and takes care of them. I am only working 4 times a month so it is just nothing. I can't work full time for the reason that I still need to have time for my kids. So 4 times a moth is perfect for me.so far I love what am doing though I missed my boys.

winter again!

I already done putting away our winter clothes thinking that its going to be cold again but I am definitely wrong. since last week our temperature is in 40 and 50 and you cant really go outside without wearing a jacket or long sleeve. it feels like winter again and i hate it. I kind of get used with the warm weather and I just cant accept it that it going to be cold again for at least a week. We'll am hoping that tomorrow the weather will change since our texas weather is so very unpredictable. We will just see..
