“Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, to the next town or even to a foreign country, but don’t go where guilt is.” Those were my parting words from last week’s column. They were cut a little short and I felt it was a thought worth completing.
These friends have nothing to feel guilty about this week…unless getting older is a sin! I think NOT. Happy birthday to you all!

Hopefully, the following individuals will join Mary soon: Neal Mulkey, Mayfield Robertson, Jessica Smith, Andrea Smith, Ed Cleveland, Sherry Brown, Terry Benefield, Kerry Smith, Jimmie Nell Vise, Merrill Hayes, Rider Bearden, Ken Sanders and Sara Noland.
Show me a person who cannot be bothered with doing little things and I will show you a person who cannot be trusted.
