The college road trips with son Andy continued last weekend.
You might remember the one to Rochester College near Detroit, Mich., back in January. This one wasn’t that far, but it stretched to two Southeast campuses.
Close to Nowhere
• As much as we loved Donkee, we had to find him a new home.
The sweet, gentle baby donkey who’d come to live with us had turned into a teenage donkey! Having him neutered seemed like a good idea, as a stud donkey is just not any fun at all.
The Preacher’s Corner
Thunderstorm good time for fire drill
Sunday during church we had quite a thunderstorm. It began as I was reading the Scripture, and the clap came as a nice punctuation to the end of the reading. However, as I was mid-sermon, the rain began pouring down. You could hear it cascading off the roof, and the lightning bolts were coming fast and furious. We are already dealing with the consequences of a lightning strike or power surge that fried the electronics in our organ, so you might say I had “lightning on my mind.” As I was preaching, there was a loud “pop” just above my head, then another, and a third! I thought it was electricity surging through the chandelier. It was not a comfortable idea to me.
Mississippi is key partner in America’s defense
By U.S. Senator
Mississippi has played a tremendous role in building and maintaining America’s unmatched seapower. Our skilled sailors, Seabees, and shipbuilders like those working at Huntington Ingalls are an integral part of a proud military tradition. Now a new Navy submarine named the USS Mississippi (SSN-782) will showcase this tradition to the world.
