Hello everybody, to use an old expression, “The weather’s getting’ cooler or It feels like fall y’all.” Thank goodness.
I tell you, the older I get the less I can stand the sweltering, staggering humidity and heat. I can’t imagine attending a football game in 90-degree heat, but folks do it. I like cool, if not cold weather for attending a football. And law, didn’t the season roll around quickly?
Too fast for Gottrocks The Birthday Fairy. He barely made it in with the birthdays. His texts came to an abrupt halt when he forgot to pay his phone bill, so he actually spent time with me. Now as I cough and blow the wing dust off my keyboards — cough, cough — Happy Birthday to: Charles “Spud” Vaughan, MaKenna Moss-Jenkins, Matt Shields, Joshua Riser, Betty O. Frye, Oscar Frye, Jarrod King, Haley Holland, Edgar Baker, Todd McMurtury, David Bostic, Mihkail Moss-Jenkins, Rickey Steen, Mary Ard, Rhett Gilliam, Jeff Burleson, James Clark, Robert Hunnicutt, Brad Burleson, Krissy Bullard, Scott Bullard, Janet McMurtury.
We send our Happy Anniversary wishes to former Whitmire residents Charles”Monk” and Anne S. McMurray on their 42nd year.
We send our sympathy and best wishes to the families of Mrs. Bessie Reid White, Chris Pearson, and Mrs. Dorothy DuBose.
