Remember meaning of Memorial Day
Often we forget the true significance of holidays.
Such I’m afraid is the case for Memorial Day.
Originally called Decoration Day, it is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service.
Spanky was a big dog, about 70 pounds, a hybrid of Akita, Australian shepherd and other breeds; a strong, resilient dog, impervious to almost every ailment.
Puzzled by how little there is to watch on TV
My TV remote went missing a few days ago, and it was quite a problem having to change the channels by hand, even though my recliner sits within arm’s reach of the set. I am an inveterate channel surfer, and being used to living alone, I find it almost impossible to watch television with anyone else, especially if the other person is an “alpha male,” who insists on controlling the remote.
Letters to the Editor
Thanks to volunteers:
I was recently overwhelmed by the volunteers who came out for the community clean-up May 6 in Byhalia. There were so many people who made the day possible. I would like to thank them.
