  • It's hard for some bosses to call their workers 'darling'

    A fellow was bragging about his son Johnny getting a job over at the steel mill.

    On his first day, the floor boss, a man with a tough reputation and scolding tongue, called Johnny into his little office to lay some ground rules.

    “You the new man, huh?,” he asked in a gruff voice. “What’s your name?”

    “My name is Johnny,” the young fellow responded.

  • Faith says even though it looks insane, just trust in God

    Every so often I’ll say to God, “With all due respect and with the full realization that you can fry me on the spot, which I admittedly deserve – you have obviously lost your mind. Sir.”

    Here’s a perfect example: After many, many months of inviting a friend to my church, one day several years ago this friend finally decided to actually come.

    I should’ve been happy about that, but that particular week was right in the middle of a capital campaign, which meant the pastor would be talking about giving money.

    Bro. Bill’s message was from Revelations 21:1-8 on the promise of a better day.  Sunday evening we enjoyed the movie “Woodlawn.”

    Set aside August 13 on your calendar for a wildlife showcase at the fairgrounds.  Bring your deer, fish, etc. to showcase, enjoy a meal, music, message and door prizes.

    Remember in prayer Helen Allen, Patsy Fitzgerald, Glen Whitaker, John and Margie Porter, and many others who are ill.

  • Geraniums vivid colors never go out of style

    My daughter and son-in-law once dismissed my annual geranium extravaganza as “too 1970s.” They were newlyweds back then, infused with youthful confidence, and less tactful than they would later become. Before they brought it to my attention, however, I’d had no idea geraniums were as out of style as harvest gold kitchen appliances.

  • Blue Wing Inn shines light on Ky. history

    Though seemingly endless, the narrow winding road eventually reaches its destination at Browns Bottom, where the historic  Blue Wing Inn welcomes visitors.

    Formerly the summer home of Mason Brown, the inn was built circa 1850. Its Greek Revival architecture is punctuated by  gingerbread trim galloping delightfully around the house, adding character to the exterior.

  • Hand and Foot ladies 'dear old friends'

    I am a bit slow this morning, too much going on over the weekend. Father’s Day dawned bright and clear. I was married on Father’s Day in 1949. We would have been married 67 years on Sunday.

    The weather has been great for the farmers. After a week of putting in hay, Wanda and Ray were happy to get that job done. They worked all week cutting, rolling and hauling hay rolls to the barn. Now the fields are bare and ready for the rain to come and grow the late hay. A farmer’s job is never done.
