Life's Surprises with Gary Smith: January brings new lock to unlock

Last month a man asked me how often I write this column for the newspaper.
I told him it is a weekly column. He said, “Oh. That is not easy to come up with something to write every week.”
He has written some good pieces himself over the years, periodically.
I have not written much this month so far other than this weekly column.
It is January. Trying to get going in a new year. A writing respite.
In the book, "The Boys in the Boat," author Daniel James Brown quotes George Yeoman Pocock’s thoughts about the annular rings of the giants of the forest.

Make plans to attend the Fifth Annual Hotrods and Hatters Car Show with Live Music. The event is free to the community and will take place Feb. 6 on the square in downtown Lockhart. An array of cars and trucks will be on display while The Octanes, Rick Broussard's Two Hoots and a Holler and The Paladins perform live music. There will be more than 18 city blocks of street closures to provide a safe and family-friendly environment for attendees. More than 700 car show participants are expected to be on the scene with a large number of spectators, as in previous years.
