I-22 work progressing
Traveling Highway 78 these days can be a pain.
I avoid it some, taking Highway 178 instead when going to Byhalia each Friday to visit with advertisers.
But then other times, I take it, because I want to keep up with the construction, as work crews stay busy with their goal of getting it up to interstate standards.
Close to Nowhere
... and it rained...
Thinking back to Remy’s and my trip to the Nashville area and looking at the photos, I get very wistful.
Almost every photo was in or about the rain — it was constant. And wonderful!
The Preacher’s Corner
Increase in wisdom hasn’t quite kicked in yet
Yes, let us admit it, the “Preacher” is getting old! The signs are all there. Looking at some photos made at a wedding in our church, I noticed gray hair on my clerical head that is not there in my collection of photos from weddings I performed in my earlier years! (We will not comment on the increasing expansiveness of my middle, since my ministerial robe covers “a multitude of sins.”) One picture is worth a thousand words, and the camera does not lie. I did not like the truth the camera told, especially since everyone says it is an excellent photo.
Letter To The Editor
From July 14 – 18, 2012, three of my sisters (Effie, Linda, and Mary) and myself (Alfreeda) visited our 98-year-old father John M. Alexander in Holly Springs. We had a great time.
That was my first visit to the South in 30 years. We didn’t have time to do much sightseeing, but what we did see was so exciting. We wanted to visit The South Reporter and Rust College but time didn’t permit because our dad is ill and we live in Illinois and Wisconsin.
We did get a chance to tour Brittenum & Son Funeral Home and take pictures of the courthouse and post office. The people in Holly Springs were really nice and that made us feel welcome.
I will be back there in August and hope to see more of your great city. Thanks to the people of Holly Springs for your hospitality.
