    Thought for the week:  Worry looks around, regret looks back and faith looks forward.

     Out and about in Hodgenville: Friday, cousin Rosetta and I drove up to Florence to help my brother Dale with his yard sale. That was the week of the great 127-yard sale event. On Saturday, we attended the Williams Reunion. It had been a few years since we have been and it was well attended. Door prizes were given and family feud was played. Thursday, August 13 is the 23rd annual National Left Handers day, which includes me. I think this should be a legal holiday.

  • Sunglasses long term eye protection

    Wearing sunglasses in the summer may seem like a no-brainer, but not all sunglasses provide protection from ultraviolet rays and not all adults wear them like they should. According to The Vision Council, 65 percent of American adults view a pair of sunglasses as a fashion accessory rather than a health necessity. One in four adults rarely or never wear sunglasses when going outside, with millennials, adults born between 1981 and 1996, being the least likely to wear sunglasses always or often.
