Sad, But True

When you begin a sentence by saying, “Now don’t get angry when I tell you this…” you can almost be sure it will have the reverse effect!

Happy Anniversary

January 19-Guy and Dot Turner. If my sources are correct, the Turners will celebrate a REALLY BIG anniversary on this date. I call 69 years together monumental and worthy of recognition! WOW!

Speaking of monumental, Roy and Gail Walker are also celebrating a milestone in their marriage. The Walkers are celebrating a half of a century as a couple! Yes, 50 years together and still happy.

Congratulations to both couples on their impressive anniversaries!

Something For Everyone

The first meeting of the Arts Council will be on January 23 at the Heflin Art Center on MLK Drive. It will begin at 6:30 and everyone is invited. This group is very active and is involved in many positive community events. The divisions are: Music, Literary, Education, Drama and Hands-on Art. Come out and be a part of a great organization.

I Promise…Hopefully

One of my 11 readers stopped me at the grocery store the other day and asked me a question. She asked why I did not write about my New Year’s Resolution as I have done in the past. I explained that it seems that I am pretty good about MAKING resolutions, but I am really terrible about KEEPING them. This year I did not make one. This year, I am setting a Possible Goal….just one. I added the word possible for obvious reasons! That goal is to reduce the clutter in a particular room in my house. (“Reduce the clutter” is my fancy way of saying “clean out”) It is the room like many of you have. It is a catch-all room. It serves as an office, gift wrapping area, sewing space, clean clothes folding area and storage room. It is where we throw all the things we want out of the way when “company is coming” and then we just shut the door.. To be honest, it is a mess and it is driving me crazy. I vow to have it cleaned and organized by February…no, March…well for sure by Easter.
