hCheers: To the kind lady behind me in the check-out line at Kroger in Haltom City who asked if she could pay for my groceries. I’d had a particularly bad day (a sad anniversary) and somehow having something good happen, totally unexpected and from a stranger, helped toward putting my world back in order.

Jeers: To Ted Nugent. Ted, you made a promise that if President Obama were re-elected, you would either be dead or in jail. You may not be coherent enough to know, but a promise is a promise. Man up. Your choice.

hCheers: To Oncor and Standard employees, Tim and Cory, for prompt action in replacing worn power lines from the pole to the house. Three days from the call to Oncor the lines were replaced. Best customer service ever.

hCheers: To the kind lady Samaritan who paid for our lunch at the Great Wall of China in Saginaw on Feb. 25. My mother, myself and my niece were so surprised when the owners’ daughter-in-law told us. Your kind gesture was greatly appreciated and unexpected. Thank you.

Cheers: To The Cowtown Marathon for a great first-time marathon experience. Huge thank you to all the volunteers, spectators, police officers, coordinators and sponsors. If it wasn’t for you, there would be no race to run. You are all awesome! Thank you so much.

hCheers: To dentists Nikki P. Green and Robert W. Leedy for making an emergency home visit to fix my mother’s dental bridge late on a Friday afternoon. Their kindness allowed my mother to celebrate her 85th birthday that evening with a smile.

hCheers: To Multi-State Transmissions on Denton Highway. Buddy and his team of mechanics have kept my ’97 car in top running condition for many years. It just hit 201,000 miles and is running like a new car — without new car payments. And thanks for sending e-mail reminders when service is due.

Jeers: To opinionated TV sportscaster Dale Hansen’s recent “unplugged” sports segment where he once again reminded us that he is of much greater moral and ethical fiber than all of his viewers. It did not surprise me when I heard that Dale was on the Ellen Degeneres show.
