  • When I sent in the column last week, I wrote a note to News-Herald Staff Writer Molly Haines saying I wasn’t writing this week because nothing will have happened till the weekend was over. Well, I was wrong again.
    I took a notion to go car shopping on Wednesday. Ann said she could go with me Thursday morning. She was taking her car up early to be serviced at Toyota and could get off at 10 a.m. to accompany me to Bob Allen Chrysler to “just look.” Then I could take her back to Toyota to pick up her car. That sounded like a plan.

  • We’re going in to the last week of summer and Labor Day weekend is upon us.
    I know the calendar says summer doesn’t end till Sept. 21, but the “be all, end all” of weather, Bill Meck, says Labor Day ... it’s Labor Day Weekend.

  • “The American backwoodsman - clad in his hunting shirt, the product of his domestic industry and fighting for the country he loves, he is more than a match for the vile but splendid mercenary of a European despot.”

  • Another slow start this Monday morning.
    My printer is acting up, so I had to write out Wanda’s news in long hand before starting. By that time, it was too late to call Fay. I did see her a few minutes on Sunday morning. She stopped on her way to church to leave me a large sack of corn. They have been working in their corn this week. She is such a good neighbor. She always remembers me, who no longer attempts to put in a garden and must rely on the kindness of my neighbors.
    Wanda had been busy this week too.
