    Thought for the week: It is what it is, it was what it was and it will be what it will be. Don’t stress it.

    Another class of graduates walked the line on May 19. Congratulations to everyone. The weather was perfect.

    I have had a great birthday week and I will be celebrating again on May 26 at my friend’s house, Kay Fulmer, and several of my KYknitwits sisters in Elizabethtown.

  • Old fashioned church homecoming

    As I continue to make my rounds throughout the county churches, my next visit was Mount Zion Separate Baptist Church for their Homecoming on May 7. As I arrived, members were dressed in clothing from the olden days.

    Mount Zion is actually located in Hart County not far from Mount Salem. It’s a small rural area, where everyone knows everyone, neighbors help each other and everyone is greeted with a warm smile and handshake.

  • Kids must be tech enabled

    My wife and I have four grown children and fourteen grandchildren, yes fourteen, ranging from a sophomore in college to 4 months. All our grandkids are tech enabled, but perhaps much differently so than you and I, or their parents were.

    For the grandkids, technology is just a part of life. Texting or Snapchatting a friend is little different than my generation picking up a phone and calling someone, or listening to an AM/FM radio. Oh, how our parents thought we were on the road to ruin.
