Greetings from the Ridge.
May of 1947 is a busy time. Baby chickens, gardens, planting crops, and serious church business all take up Grandma's time. Dwight Puckett and Carolyn Latham have a notable experience which probably wouldn't happen today because of all our technology. Grandma's spring shopping includes everything from a corset to a washing machine.
I couldn't hide my tears as I snuck out the back door at the end of the Hillsboro High School graduation this year.
In July of 2012, Mary, Grace and I went on one of our first family vacations with just the three of us. With some discounts from the paper, we headed down to Branson, which had been one of my favorite family vacation destinations as a kid.
A famous saying often used in the military is "a soldier never dies unless he is forgotten." Memorial Day is a perfect time of the year when we all can remember those who died for our nation.
What will the neighbors think if they see me now? This isn't a question I ask myself very often, but it seemed appropriate last Thursday. It was eleven o'clock at night and I was in my pajamas, placing a ladder against the side of my house and preparing to climb up to the roof.
Dear graduate, greetings from the Ridge.
