One of my favorites
Marshall County lost one of its jewels last week.
In my 13 years here, meeting and getting to know folks, she was one of my favorites.
Virginia Armour died at age 92. And she left a legacy of dedication, persistence and commitment for all of us to follow.

Death week — commemorating the death of Elvis Presley — always brings a lot of hoopla to Memphis, Tenn.
Funny how things hit your memory. I remember my mother-in-law, Jimmie, calling me to tell me Elvis was dead. I was trying to soothe her and just made it worse. She was nearly hysterical by the time I got through calming her down. Cousin Carolyn was worse! Jimmie and I, thinking that if we wouldn’t keep Laura, Carolyn’s daughter, that Carolyn wouldn’t go berserk and go to Graceland, were wrong. Carolyn took 6-year-old Laura with her and Laura fainted in the heat and crowd. Carolyn got to go into the house with her.

There’s a progression of things. We’re told about it, but no one talks about it. This changing - passing of things in one way or another.
I took the trash can to the front yard the other afternoon. I looked up and noted the mailbox and decided I should go ahead and bring the mail in.
