Red Sox fans attend opening game
Mike Drewery, Chris Mirante, Rob Simpson and Christopher Hedglin returned Tuesday from Arlington, Texas. The group met up with roughly 80 other Boston Red Sox fans to attend opening day of major league baseball. The Red Sox played the Texas Rangers. The men also enjoyed a weekend of tailgating, baseball and catching up with other Red Sox fans.
Robin and Ben Seale met up with children, Hamilton Seale of Pensacola, Fla., and Andy Seale of Nashville, Tenn., in Jackson, over the weekend to attend the engagement party for their eldest son, Dr. Ben Seale Jr., and fiancee, Anne Ostenson. The party was held on Saturday night. Other locals who attended were Charley McClatchy, Sarah Crain, Bea McCrosky, Greg and Becky Taylor, Jim and Sandy White, and Ann and Chuckee Pringle drove up from Biloxi. Congratulations to the couple on their upcoming nuptials!
A Holly Springs icon was laid to rest last week, Spud Cupp. A 17-year veteran of both Fant Street and Center Street, he was best known for his deep, bellowing howls at passers-by and, in his younger years, his get-up-and-go chases of flying birds. There is probably not a person in Holly Springs who, at one time or another, had not seen this wonderful creature or been greeted by him when stepping up on the side porch. He was one of many, but he had a slight imperfection with his feet. That did not stop him, though! He could out-run the best of them! He had the prettiest brown eyes that would stare up at you with admiration when he got a little pat behind the ears or rub on the belly. He will be missed by all who loved him, especially by his companion, Becky. Those who attended his funeral were Beverly Fitch of Collierville, Tenn. and Margaret Ann Barruel. Bruce McMillan officiated the service.

I woke up one morning last week, and looked out the window and what to my wandering eyes did I see, but the muddy Mississippi River flowing down Chulahoma Avenue!
