Cheers: To Adam Palmer of Executive Window Tinting. He applied 3M window tinting to several windows and storm doors in our house. He was courteous and did an excellent job. My husband and I really like how the film has reduced the glare and the heat in the rooms in which it was applied.

hCheers: To the Dalworthington and Pantego police and fire departments that came to the rescue of two ducklings that had fallen into a storm drain on July 26. Even though there was a mix-up of whose jurisdiction they were in probably Arlington), they didn't leave until the babies were safe.

hCheers: To a special couple. On July 25, seven friends (“the Lunch Bunch”) were having lunch as we have for some 30 years, at Romano’s Macaroni Grill on South University Drive. After a great lunch a charming waiter informed us that a lovely couple had paid our bill. With grateful hearts we thank you.

Jeers: To using trap-neuter-return to control cats. Thousands roam our gardens, killing creatures that help control insects. They live 14 years. Our cities don’t have enough traps, personnel or funds to trap them fast enough to make a difference.

Jeers: To the vultures who desecrate bodies, graves and cemeteries. Shame on you! It’s bad enough we disrespect the living. We all are going to die, and I’m sure you would not want someone to mistreat you or your loved ones that way.
