May 18, I had a new experience: I flew across the country to attend a conference and, after the first session and brief discussions with several leaders, flew back to Beaumont on the same day. I did not leave angry but realized that if I stayed, I would be disruptive. I was there at the invitation of someone I greatly respect and did not want to embarrass or disappoint that person, so my only option was to leave.

I have given much thought to a Father’s Day message for all the wonderful men that deserve to be treated very special on this, their weekend. I have long thought that dads often got a bum deal when compared to the lavish celebrations planned for mothers, and I wanted to do something to help equalize the holidays.

Hostas are a secret weapon for those of us with shady gardens. They come in crazy combination of shapes, textures and colors. You can look for them with a wide variety of leaf shapes, too – heart-shaped, oval, lance-shaped, round – and shiny, dull, smooth or textured. The colors vary from blue to bright green to yellow to red to whites.

Q. Is it lawful for a landlord to request a walk through every four months as part of a lease for a rental property? I’ve leased several homes and I have never had a landlord even suggest something like this. I feel like my privacy would be violated if I agreed to this. Therefore, I’m contemplating not signing the lease.
