Don’t forget the annual City Wide Yard Sale is coming up this Saturday, September 12th. Let’s hope a lot of people are having sales. Anyone wishing to set up downtown, it is first come, first served.

Also, the Red River Fish and Game Club annual fish fry will be September 26th. You can get your tickets at Costello’s Café or from one of the officers.

Thank you Lord for the rain we received and continue to receive. We were getting so dry in South Logan. With all the corn shelling going on, the dust played havoc with those with sinus problems.

We went to Greenville to the flea market on Monday. We wondered if it was still as big as it has always been. Apparently so, Parking was on the road and had all the fields full. It’s amazing how big that continues to be after all these years. Whatever you may be looking for you should be able to find at the Greenville Flea Market.

The east stone entrance to the cemetery has been repaired this week. Billy Costello did a great job. He also filled the fountain stone in that had come off. I hope everyone will try to take care of this.

The Lewisburg Bank in Adairville has a new face. Dylan Byrum is working in the bank now as part of his senior year at Logan County High School. He will be a great asset to the bank because he is so outgoing and never meets a stranger. He does well at anything he does. Also, Becky Tinch is the new branch manager and is also a great asset.

Be in prayer for Billy Burchett and his family. Billy is very low and the family needs our prayers as they wait and minister to Billy’s needs.

Also, remember our Firefighters, Policemen, Policewomen, first responders, EMT’s and Paramedics and our Military. We should have them in our prayers daily but as we remember that morning on 9-11, let’s especially remember them. I remember how beautiful that day was. The sky was so blue and the clouds were big and fluffy. As I sat there working, the radio was on and I heard them say a plane had hit one of Trade Center towers. I remember thinking what an awful accident. Then the second one was hit and I knew it was no accident. I walked down the hall to see if the rest of the building had heard it and we sat huddled around listening as the Pentagon was hit and the plane went down in Pennsylvania. Our world changed that day. We realized that we were vulnerable and wanted only to gather our families around and pray not knowing what else was coming. We could not comprehend the number of lives that were lost that day and the number of families that were affected. As we remember that day, let us pray that we never have to experience that type of tragedy again and that we stand united as a nation against the hatred that drove that action.

Coffee Bottom Girl

Times were so simple in the 50’s. What I thought was boring was really relaxing. Several of my cousins on my daddy’s side of the family lived in Nashville and we got to make trips to Nashville to visit. It was always fun to go on a Sunday to visit my Aunt Nell and her family. As we drove into Nashville I thought New York City can’t be any bigger. Then we would get there and she had 3 daughters still at home and they were teenagers. Well, for a little girl getting to hang out with teenagers was always a treat. Two of the girls were twins, Glenda and Linda, but they had been called Butter and Weaky all their lives. Apparently when they were born Linda had been born a little butterball and Glenda was the weakling of the two. Anyway after lunch they would be getting ready to go out on a date and we would get to watch as they put on their make-up and fix their hair. It was almost as good as getting ready ourselves to go out. Then they would be gone and we would get ready to head home and what was a great day would come to an end.

A Hui Hou Kā’Kou

“May the road rise up to meet you

May the wind be always at your back

May the sun shine warm upon your face

And the rain fall soft upon your fields

And until we meet again

May God hold you in the palm of his hand”
