When Dewey and Emily walked into the Mule Barn the other day, they were greeted with applause and whistles. Emily blushed and Dewey took a bow, almost hitting the coffee pot Loretta was carrying.

"I hear you too really fell for each other," Doc said. "And the way I hear it, many times."

"That's right, Doc, I finally cornered him and we're planning a wedding," Emily said.

Emily is a brave soul, taking for a husband the most accident prone human being since Wrong Way Corrigan.

Dear Dietitian – Calorie-Restricted Diet?

Dear Dietitian,

I just read an article that said a permanent 25-30% reduction in caloric intake produces anti-aging benefits and results in a longer lifespan.  Is this true?

--Seth

Dear Seth, 

Let us first define anti-aging.  It is not fewer wrinkles unfortunately; rather, it is slowing down the aging process by decreasing disease. Studies have been performed on animals in which their caloric intake was decreased by about 30%, and the result was a longer lifespan.  But does this transfer to humans?

Our pal Doc is a genius. 

Just take the other day, and all of us were gathered up and coffee'd at the Mule Barn truck stop coffee shop and world dilemma think tank, and ol' Doc just proved it again.

Steve noticed them first, the young couple who had just pulled into a parking space outside the "efaC" window. From the outside, it reads "Cafe." 

"Say," said Steve, "isn't that Bobby and Carol Ann?"

"Yep," said Jimmy, "and if I ain't mistaken, there's three of 'em today."

I found out that a friend in Holly had passed away and was buried before I received the news. Maybe the old form of communication was better than all our modern technology. Anyway, our condolences to the family of Lonnie Hess, former Towner resident and was living in Holly when he passed away. His daughter, Lonetta, and I went to school together in Towner.

Jerry Weber got out of ICU on Saturday. Keep him in your prayers as he moves forward to recovery.

Last Wednesday, I went to Cheyenne Wells to see the doctor and then had lunch with Cora Coffman.
