Joel and I started our day Saturday at Clear Creek MB Church just outside of Oxford for a funeral visitation. We were there to visit long time Mississippi Press Association staffer Andrea Ross for the services of her mother Emma Holman.
With the resurfacing of the Bruce square going on, the side roads have been getting a lot of traffic. Although you can get around the square (one lane), parking is limited in some places and not available in others. Work started Monday morning.
Joel and I picked a good weekend to be out of town. When we left here Wednesday morning, the town water was off and apparently, it rained here the entire time we were gone.
After what seemed like more than a week with no sun, we got plenty of it Sunday, and it felt like summer. I don’t remember going that long ever without my sunglasses.
I knew if I was wrong about the snow someone would correct me, and they did.
The snow we got last Wednesday in Calhoun county was, without question, the most I’ve ever seen here at one time, and the most beautiful.
What a shock to hear of the death of Oxford Atty. Tom Freeland over the weekend.
Why do I care if it snows? My school days are long gone, so I won’t get a snow day.
I took advantage of the warm weather Sunday afternoon to start a little spring cleaning. Project one– our garden/tool shed. I try to give a top to bottom cleanup every other year and this is the year. It’s amazing how much stuff that’s in there that we don’t/will never use.
Joel and I left Bruce last Wednesday right at 4:30 p.m. to get to Jackson for the Mississippi Press Association’s annual Mid-Winter Conference. That was pretty early for us to leave, and I was quite proud of my organization skills that had gotten me ready to go on time.
