  • “Dear Mom and all,
    I’m writing you a few lines to say hello and tell you that I’m getting along fine. Well Mom, we left Missouri Monday and arrived in Louisiana Tuesday about 12 o’clock. Well Mom I don’t have much to say, but I’ll give you my address anyway … tell them all hello and give them my best wishes … it’s awful beautiful out here and the trees are all pine. Well, I’ll have more time to write the next time.
    Love, Marvin”

  • Good morning. The sun is out and it’s lighting up the hard frost and freeze of last night.
    The TV said it’s in the teens but my thermometer says 38. Bless it’s little mercury heart. It always gives me a false sense of warmth in the winter. You see, when the sun comes up over the hill in front of my house, it shines directly on the thermometer which causes the mercury to shoot up and it rises to about the roof. When the shade finally comes, it drops back into its proper reading. I know this, but it makes me feel like spring is on the way for a few minutes.

  • He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not…
    Many a young girl recites these words as she pulls petals off a flower. The purpose is to reveal the true intent of an admirer.
    Sayings, superstitions and old wives tales were tucked away in the memories and embedded in the culture of early Owen County settlers. Most were of Scotch-Irish, German and English descent, and along with their few belongings, they brought a rich legacy of these sayings  from Europe to the New World.

  • After rushing around like a mad rabbit all last week, this week is a blank. No cards, no plays or engagements of any kind.
    I did watch the basketball game on Saturday night to the exciting climax. They did good. For those of you who live in another dimension, I am referring to the University of Kentucky’s game with Missouri. Bless their little hearts, they’ve learned to make foul shots.

  • Beech Grove Baptist

  • He was a yarn-spinner and a rail-splitter. He was mostly self-educated but went on to become a storekeeper, a lawyer and the president of the United States.
    He and his future wife were both born in Kentucky. He came into the world in a rough-hewn cabin, she in a luxurious home in Lexington. He was famous for his wit, honesty, and compassion; all of which served him well as he led this divided country during a most volatile tragic time.
