Mr. Frank full of love
Mr. Frank was down to earth – always in overalls.
I will never forget the first time I saw him at a sporting event when I came to Holly Springs 11 years ago.

This and that about this and that
• This and that... was the late Gale Denley’s favorite headline. Since I often have to think of headlines, I can understand that perfectly. I tend to be sarcastic and Barry just won’t let me use some things. Oh well.

Monday is laundry day for me. That is hardly earthshaking news, for most of the world, I think, chooses Monday for the wash. Grandmother Winter used to tell me about boiling laundry out in the backyard in a big wash pot with a roaring fire beneath. The clothes would be washed in lye soap that was also made in a big pot with a roaring fire underneath.

Importance of dads
Divorce has become commonplace; unwedded couples have begun to share homes and have children. This has created homes with an absent parent, mainly an absent dad.
Child rearing once was exclusively considered mother-oriented. The father’s major role was to bring home the bacon. That changed with psychologist Fitzhugh Dodson’s 1974 publication of “How to Father.”
