Another driver in the family
I got most of my “growing up” driving experience on motorcycles and slipped by with only a few minor accidents.
But when my mom bought me that shiny, new black Malibu Classic, it was my pride and joy.
Peanut butter & salmonella
Sandy Tuttle and I are in trouble!
Sandy called me a week or so ago, laughing at the memories my peanut butter and pickle sandwiches evoked.
Teach us to number our days... (Psalm 90)
My family has never been one to make soulful pilgrimages to the cemetery, and so I have been surprised to have felt the need to do so with some frequency over the past several years. I suppose it is the pull of the old prayer I recite in our burial service, “that and as thou hast given us this new tie to bind us to the world unseen, so grant that where our treasure is, there may our hearts be also.”

Letters to the Editor
McClatchys good friends:
Nice article on C.B. and Marie. They are both childhood friends of mine.
I now reside in Georgia, but every time I get back to Holly Springs I try to stop by and see them both. I know they will be missed.

After hearing (through Tolly) about C.B. and Marie McClatchy’s news about closing their store in Holly Springs, I simply want to congratulate them for their dedicated service to their community.
I grew up in a similar community setting (my father’s neighborhood grocery store, Sikeson, Mo.) during the late ’50s and ’60s.
I can appreciate the thoughtful editorial you wrote about these two long-time friends of mine.
It is obvious that C.B. and Marie have continued the kindness and thoughtfulness they showed me (and many others) as fellow classmates/teammate while attending Murray State University together in the early ’70s.
I miss them both and pray they continue to find happiness (and some rest) together in the years to come!
Sincerely and respectfully yours,
