“We are all just prisoners here of our own device.”—Don Henley.
Well, it happened again!
I went down to pick up my grandson, age 5, at my driveway on Mt. Zion Road. A car was following the school bus at a higher rate of speed than it should have. The bus had the lights on and the horn was blowing. The driver of the bus was starting to back into my driveway, like he always does. The car behind saw what was about to happen, so he chose to turn into the ditch area rather than hit the bus. The bus driver had seen what was about to happen and he had stopped backing up. The car missed the back of the bus by about 3 feet. Thank God that no one was hurt.
I am writing to thank Marshall County residents for spreading joy to children around the world this Christmas. Through the generosity of the Marshall County community, the Northwest Mississippi Area Team was able to collect 22,900 shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind.
I’m convinced God puts people in my path when I need them most.
The phone call from the IRS was the very last straw. I just totally blew a gasket, the top of my head came off, and steam blew out my ears.
