The Value of Time

Chad E. Harris, Rockdale Texas

I read an article recently about the importance of learning from our senior citizens. I always enjoyed chatting with my neighbor Clyde Leblanc, who is in his 90’s. He had an interesting perspective on everything and always added value to my thought process. I appreciated the fact that he’d experienced every economic landscape from boom […]

The Hype Is Real, Brett’s BBQ

Brett's Bar-B-Que Rockdale, Texas

On a summer afternoon, 232 days ago, I ended up in Rockdale, Texas in search of a site for a project our team was developing. I notice a sign along the road that read, ” BBQ” and a blue trailer with seating. I continued traveling to Rockdale every Tuesday on the 5am flight and returning […]

A Day Of Running in the Sun

It has been a long time coming but today, today was an amazing day. My day started out at 1:30 am with the arrival of my youngest son and dogs. I have been waiting for my son to arrive for a few weeks but there were things taking place in Louisiana that did not allow […]

I Do Miss New Orleans

It’s been three months since Chad Everett Harris left New Orleans. Yep, that’s me, Chad E. Harris. I tend to write in the third person sometimes. It is confusing but it is also better for story telling. I moved to New Orleans on 1986. I built a business, raised children, and spent several years enjoying […]

What happens when three men get left to their own demise in the middle of nowhere? Well, they make their version of ” Prestige World Wide” from Step Brothers. The video didn’t start out as a planned event. It started out with the video of Lyle and the bobcat, I couldn’t pass it up to […]

The 1st Time in 26 Years

Today is an unusual day for me. It’s the first time in 26 years that I have not been with my wife and sons on Christmas. Over the years I have never missed a holiday at home and I am 100% responsible. At the age of 50, I decided to take at the biggest risk […]

Cold Drip Coffee

I am a coffee fanatic but it has to be cold and it has to be strong. The days of heading to the local Starbucks to grab some coffee are over. I find that Starbucks and other chain brands offer watered down coffee. I can’t believe they are able to sell it at scale. The […]

Meet Marshmallow & S’more

What happens when four guys from the city move to the county, they end up with Donkeys. Two months ago I left for Texas to work on a project in Rockdale. This adventure has not let me down yet with the introduction of our newest friends, Marshmallow & S’more. I met these donkeys when our […]
