Hey Y'all
Memories
By Marlene Ratledge Buchanan

I usually try to make these columns a little humorous. After all, our lives have enough bad stuff, why not laugh as much as you can.

Any of you who know my son James will understand that Snell and I are very lucky to have only four cats in the livestock pen, AKA our house. Each and every one was a foundling and has his or her story. All of their stories deal with jerks-- humans.

Did you meet your spouse or significant other and just know “this is the one”? I have to tell you a little story about Snell and me.

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas - and it was just Halloween!  I understand that there are only eight weeks between Halloween and Christmas, and that during that time we have to squeeze in Thanksgiving.  Retailers make the majority of their profits during these weeks.  I do understand all that.  However, I hate Christmas shopping.  I really do.
