A tradition since 1987
It’s somewhat odd being one of the “old-timers” at the Mississippi Press Association Convention.
Pam, Erin and I attended the 147th annual get-together Thursday through Saturday at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi.
My first trip to the coast for the gathering of newspaper folks from across the state came back in 1987, when I was cutting my teeth in the business as sports editor of The Itawamba County Times.

Life on the water
My first visit to a houseboat was incredible! I’ve always thought I should have lived right near the water, but now, I’ve changed my mind. I want to live on the water.
Oddly enough, there’s a houseboat for sale just across the dock from my niece and her new husband’s houseboat. It’s only half a million, so I might buy it...
Sarge, Sister’s new husband, described the boat as having everything possible on it, except one thing and that was crude, so I won’t say it here. Call me if you really want to know.
