Taking Time

SUNDAY February 25, 2024

“Life gets mighty precious when there’s less of it to waste.”

Bonnie Raitt

February 29 only comes around every four years. What will you do with an extra day this year?

To most of us, this Thursday is just another work day, or school day, or an otherwise regular routine day. But it does allow us to pause and think about seizing the day, the moment, no matter where we are in life. Trials and tribulations are much easier to manage when humans come together to love and support each other.

Arts and entertainment help too. Seeing the beauty of the world and giving our minds a break with fun and meaningful pastimes keeps us balanced. Find a few ways to spend good time here in this issue and in the County Line eMagazine. — P.A. Geddie

Neighbor, How Long Has It Been?

In 1895, 16-year-old Lyman T. Davis appeared on the Streets of Corsicana Texas, and began selling his “ranch” chili from the back of a wagon in front of the Blue Front Saloon. Although no one knew it at the time, Davis was beginning an odyssey that would lead to the foundation of a company destined to become a Texas and Southwest legend. By the early 1920s, the chili’s reputation had spread and Davis began canning it. His pet wolf, Kaiser Bill, was selected to grace the label, and that’s how Wolf Brand Chili got its name. Its famous trademarked slogan is, “Neighbor, how long has it been since you’ve had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili? Well, that’s too long.”

The city of Corsicana has a bronze statue dedicated to Texas’ official state dish along with many others in their sculpture tour. READ MORE
