I hope you’re having a good week!!!!
This past week my dishwasher decided it would be fun to start flashing ‘9’s” and not letting me choose the wash cycle. I decided to fight back before calling the lonely Maytag repairman (aka Jim Allen) and found some help online. Of course, the help was also overflowing with [...]

Beebe Schools started this past Monday and I know lots of parents are happy about that. I went to the Early Childhood building Monday near the end of the day to take some pictures of the little ones - first graders - as they prepared for the buses or parent pick-up. They all seemed so [...]

Have you seen the new mural on the west side of the Wilbur Mills Co-Op bldg.?  If you haven’t  - drive down Main Street and take a look. It is the result of the work of many people but the primary planners are Melba Brackin - who had the idea - and Thomas Fernandez - [...]

Remember when you were a kid and it seemed like summer lasted for years? Now it seems like it lasts for a minute and a half. Why is that?  Do we have too much to do now or do we not stop long enough to savor the summer?  I don’t know - but I would [...]

My beautiful and unique cat, Mr. Six, went to kitty heaven this week. He had been sick and we had been treating him but after about a month, the disease got the best of him and we had to have him put to sleep. It was heart-wrenching - as it always is when you have [...]

I hope you had a great 4th of July holiday!  I went to the parade at Floyd  - which is always a fun thing to do. Then that night I went to the city’s event at the city park. It was fun - there were probably one thousand people there - maybe more. I took aerial [...]

This is the week of my favorite holiday - 4th of July!  I have loved it since I was a little girl and I guess it would have to be because, not, unfortunately because of the deeper meaning of our country’s independence, but for me it is the fireworks, swimming and just family get-togethers. Sure, [...]

We have officially passed the mark of “Summer Begins - June 21st - also longest day of the year” and now we are on the downhill slide back to winter. Now that was a pessimistic view. Let me rephrase that. We are now in the fantastic, sun-filled days of summer!  Better?!  Well, that is where [...]

I hope you’re having a good summer!  The other day, a friend sent me this funny, “You know you’re  a Redneck when”…. story. (author unknown) Here it is:
1. You take your dog for a walk and you both use the same tree.
2. You can entertain yourself for more than 15 minutes with a fly swatter.
3. [...]

This past Saturday my dad’s sister, Aunt Mary, passed away. She was 95 years young.  As a young girl, I spent many days during the summer with my grandmother and my Aunt Mary in Clinton, AR. Back then, I lived in North Little Rock and found life in a small town very different from my [...]
