My latest birthday slipped by without much fanfare, thank goodness. Most people tend to overlook 46, I guess. There’s nothing significant about that one, except that it’s one year closer to 50.
My friend Jane
For some reason, I’ve talked about my friend Jane to several people the past couple weeks. And the more I talk about our friendship and the way our lives intertwine, the more I think “this is really weird!”
Sunday School is a ‘tender treasure’ of our little city
Last Lord’s Day our Sunday school got under way for the fall term. In “olden times” (when I was a child) it was called Rally Day, and all the classes got new teachers and met in different rooms. I always felt a little unsettled by this, because I grew to love my Sunday school teachers and did not want to leave them.
September when Scotland is at its most beautiful
Here in the Scottish Borders we are enjoying a settled period of very welcome late summer weather.
It follows one of the poorest summers for sunshine that many people can remember and climate change is certainly being blamed by many.

Letter to the Editor
Thanks to fire
On Friday, Aug. 24, there was a huge fire on Puppy Hill Road in Waterford. My son’s property was involved in this fire and his home was saved and many others on this road were saved due to the response and the work of all the fire departments that came to the rescue. Thanks to Waterford, Holly Springs, Cayce, Watson, Victoria, Red Banks, DeSoto County and Lafayette County Fire Departments and any others that I may have missed.
Also, thanks to the emergency services who were there to attend to those firemen who were overcome by the excessive heat. Some of our tax dollars pay for these services that we take for granted, but after seeing these men and women in action these fire departments deserve those tax dollars that they received, plus some.
