  • Following rain, all is well on the Branch

    I jumped the gun last week when Wanda’s news wasn’t on the computer when I got up and turned it on. I hadn’t had my coffee and decided not to call Fay and forget it for the week. So, I did.
    I got a call from her mid-morning asking if I was sick. Fay had called her and told her she hadn’t heard from me. I told her I hadn’t heard from her and just called the paper and told them I was slipping the column that week. She said she had sent her contribution. I told her to send it again and would add it to this week’s column, so here it is.
