Thrift Store to close July 15
If you’ve wondered why my column hasn’t been appearing, we’ve been redoing our kitchen starting with ripping out the floor and shoring up the supports under neath and, yes, we did it all by ourselves. Both dogs and all six cats were a big help and the kitchen is functional again. Just in time, ’cause we were getting pretty tired of sandwiches.
Second Time Around has gone the last time around. My sources say we’re to be out of the building by July 15 so forget regular hours. If you see the door open, drop in. Whatever is left has got to go.
Through all the turmoil everywhere else the Spay/Neuter Clinic continues to chip away at the unwanted pet overpopulation. If you need an appointment, call 662- 252-6196. If you get the answering machine your phone number is the most important part of your message. The guy who left me my own number never has called back and is probably out there now fuming about the rotten service. Don’t hesitate to call again if your message hasn’t been answered. My cats love the blinking light and have been known to push buttons. (They’ve turned the stove on before.)
The Marshall County Humane Society is having the July meeting on the 18th at 5:30 p.m. at the VFW in Holly Springs. If you want more details about what we are up to and want some input, join us.
For information on adoptions, fostering or about the Humane Society in general, call 662-564- 2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
