I decided the best way to tell Addi Claire about the passing of our dog was to tell her the truth, since I am still having to hedge after telling her King, our Border Collie (who died last year), is “at the vet.”
We had quite a few snow flurries over the weekend– Friday and Saturday. It was never enough to stick, but was enjoyable to watch anyway.
I have torn my house apart looking for some recipes. I know they are there, I know the paper they are printed out on and what the CD looks like that is attached to them. I can see them in my mind, the 8-1/2×11 sheets are folded in half and the CD is between them, I just can’t find them.
Joel and I are celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary today. We were married Feb. 20, 1999 at Puddin’ Place in Oxford. Our anniversary gift to each other – a couple of days in New Orleans and a speaker for our iPods.
Some of the fondest memories of my childhood were the time I spent with each of my grandmothers– Maggie Ellen Denley of Bruce and Myrtle Scott of Macon, and I desperately want my granddaughters to have those memories of time with me.
We woke up Sunday morning to water going everywhere in the front yard. There was a big leak at the meter at the empty house on the hill and it literally flooded our yard.
The last time I gave a movie recommendation in this column, I swore it would be my last. I don’t remember the movie, but I remember the phone call I got the next week. A subscriber had gone to see it and “could not get beyond the language” and “couldn’t believe that I had recommended it.”
We are on Dora overload at our house. Addi Claire has been with us for a week while her parents have been out of town.
We got some disappointing news for subscribers to The Journal with 388 zip codes. The post office tells us that due to the closing of the Tupelo mail facility, newspapers that were arriving in one day, will now take two. That will affect subscribers in Houston, Pontotoc and others with 388 zips.
A lot of the news this week has been about bowl games – MSU, Ole Miss, Alabama.
