Heed my own advice
I guess you can say I’ve become somewhat addicted to my cell phone.
I’m not on it around the clock – like some I know – either talking or texting or e-mailing or whatever else the ever-changing technology provides.
Close to Nowhere
Zebedee, where art thou?
We received an article this week about a concert at Hopewell No. 1 MB Church.
The concert will be by Zebedee R. Jones, “renowned choir director and pianist” to quote the article.
The Preacher’s Corner
News not only travels fast, it travels far
News can travel fast. I learned that when I asked out my first college date. The men’s dorm, where I had made the call from the hall pay phone (yes, this was indeed the “dark ages”), was about half a ball field’s length away from the dining hall.
Letter To The Editor
Thank you for sending my missed paper. Have been getting it for years and read it all.
I am 90 years old. I moved to Holly Springs in 1944 and liked it a lot. Lived there almost five years. I have tried to get Lois Swaney to write about the police when I moved there. They did not ride around in a police car. They walked the “square.” They did not wear guns. they carried a long flashlight and a “billie” stick. They did that for years and never had any trouble. On Saturday, the sidewalk was full of people. There was a movie theater there, too. On election night, they closed the east side of the square and people took lawn chairs to sit and watch the scoreboard and people dance.
It was really a good time to live there. Neighbors visited. We never locked the doors. We might hook the screen door. Thanks again for the missed paper.
