Loss of legends
Two weeks ago when Andy and I were in Jackson for a basketball tournament, we stopped by the mall.
We came across a store that was having a going out of business sale - everything 50 percent off or more.
The first thing I noticed was 16 episodes of The Andy Griffith Show on CD. It caught my eye because there was Barney Fife (Don Knotts), along with Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith) and his son Opie (Ron Howard), on the cover - Barney with his gun, Opie with his sling shot and Andy looking on from behind.
Am I the only one feeling kinda lost without the Olympics on every night?
I’ve gotten used to seeing the “Flying Tomato” and wondering if he’s going to be able to talk Sasha into talking to him. And what about Apollo? And the war between Chad and Shani?
Oh, and let’s not forget the amazing things we saw these athletes do! We watched in complete and utter amazement while the guys and girls jumped off the equivalent of 20-story buildings and stretched out almost parallel to their skis and floated down those same 20 stories.
One of the great characters of the South
Can I have gone so long and not told you about Miss Lily? Lily was not a Holly Springs character, but was one of the great characters of the South. Certainly one of my most unforgettable.
On Wednesday, Feb. 22, I attended a special called meeting by the Concerned Parents Association hoping to gain insight on the reason for firing Dr. Gentry, the newly appointed school superintendent.
