The Rock Wall

This week our tech guy made a special trip to fix my Microsoft Word that has been malfunctioning about half the time. In order to get my computer to take the new MS 16.41, he had to install a new operating system, OS 13.6. I was on the phone with Microsoft on Friday trying to

Kimball got some good shots of the patriotic opening for the 9-11 19th anniversary game, but I don’t think there is anyway to do it justice. I asked if it was DECA that organized it because they do Veterans’ Day ceremonies. I was impressed to learn that it was the brainchild of Head Football Coach

Kimball noticed Dad’s tell tale sign it was time to go back to school at the end of summer – golden rods are blooming. Looks like that didn’t get called off for virus concerns. – We were getting ready to go to the Clever/Bulldog game Friday evening when Kimball got the call. Clever is under

There’s nothing quite like a small town doctor’s office for service and patient knowledge. About 4:30 Monday I felt really bad. I immediately dialed the Clinic and my friend, Judy Carver, answered.  She chastised me half if jest, I think, for waiting so late to call. I told her it had just happened. I knew

I am sorry to hear about the death of Randy K Bland, owner of Bland-Hackleman Funeral Home.  Jeanne Hoagland said he was quite an athlete, fleet of foot. Maybe that explains the part in his obituary where he played softball with his kids and hit a triple, then thought about trying to turn it into

Social distancing was not an issue when Kimball and I ate our Picnic meals on the Rock Wall the first two days. We were the only ones. On Saturday, my law breaking ways caught up with me.  Sheriff McCarty sat down by us as we ordered our hamburgers from the new Lions Club wagon. At
