The bells of summer have tolled once again. School’s back in session and for the first time in over 20 years I don’t have a dog in the race. Or, make that a child. I do, however, still have a wife working in the classroom.
It’s not like it’s breaking news or anything, but the old tomato crop ain’t doing real good again this year at the Beeland house. I don’t really even care any more. If I did, but I don’t, I suppose I’d try a little harder to cultivate, water and fertilize. Well we haven’t really had to worry about that watering part this year.
Having just returned from a four- day business meeting/convention on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, I have to admit it just isn’t like it was down there in the good ole days. Casinos may have been good for the economy back in the ‘90s, but today some of them are run down, dark and stinky.
A press release in last week’s e-mail box really had nothing to do with Forest nor Scott County, but it did appear in my mailbox so I did, as I do everyday, proceeded to read it to see why, perhaps, it was sent to me, the newspaper editor. Having done my due diligence, I’m sure I still have no clue.
