Several years ago while returning from a fishing trip to Arkansas, I was pulled over by a police officer.
Before you think ill of me, please let me explain.
The officer informed me that one of my headlights wasn’t working.
After I assured him that the light would be fixed upon my return home, he graciously let me off with a warning ticket.

Sometimes I’m faced with what a country bumpkin I truly am — not because I came from Ruston, but because Dallas does everything bigger than life and I have to stretch my wings. I learned the art of growing in a smaller environment and was inspired to reach for the stars, and now I can revel in it.
The auspicious weather introduced to me an all weekend opportunity to bask in the sunshine, while walking laps around the beautiful lake at the Lincoln Parish Park. While noticing the other people often taking advantage of the weekend as well; I observed some running, some bicycling and some throwing frisbees or flying kites or performing some other form of aerobic fitness. So again, I questioned myself. What do I tell other people when they ask, “Why don’t you come running with us?”

A will that has been signed and witnessed stays valid until the time — if ever — when you revoke it.
Your financial condition may have changed in ways your present will doesn’t currently reflect.
