I have told you about the old Strain House that my grandfather, on my Price side, lived in when I was young.  It was an old civil war home and in the day time, quite neglected, but in the dark of night it was completely frightening (this was a pre-Civil War homestead). At my young age, it looked many years older than the hundred or so...

I realize that life is full of changes.     As I watched the transformation of the old A & A Grocery store building as it was uncovered from the many facades it has held throughout the years, I was reminded of the Saturday afternoons my friends and I would saunter around the court square.  I am not sure what our exact...

My friend and I were visiting and began to talk about the things we really enjoyed in our lives.  I love first born puppies.   I was babysitting my daughter’s Boston Bulldog, Rosalind Lee, Rosie for short, just before she gave birth to her first litter of puppies. They were a cross-breed of dachshund and bulldog.  As I...

Cotton bolls in all of their glory, coloring the landscape of the work-tended land have now opened to magnificent splendor!   Is there anything more beautiful or peaceful to gaze upon than a matured cotton field?  I surely do not think so.   My husband and I were traveling the roads again yesterday, and we passed several...

They are as magnificent as ever.  I was in Big Red, and all my children enjoyed their time in this organization.  I had one child, my oldest son, who really relished his seven years of playing drums. Actually, he was very good at it and acquired a full scholarship to Ole Miss...

Is is the end of summer: laughter in the pool, picnics outside, bike rides late in the day, kids playing in the yard until 8 or 9 p.m., sipping tea on the back porch, the smell of fresh cut grass, I really miss these things as summer comes to a close.  Last night while I looked through my kitchen window as the shadows of dusk began to...

I had so many cousins scattered all through my family as I was growing up that I never lacked for a playmate.   One of my cousins was the oldest of four, and her family lived on a farm out close to Hesterville, right on Highway 35. She and I were cousins but also friends. They were real farmers!  They lived very modestly, just as we...

As I was making breakfast for my husband the other morning, I was reminded of my grandmother’s breakfast which she prepared for my granddaddy every morning.  I, like her, make homemade biscuits every morning.   It does not matter that mine come from a Pillsbury bag of frozen biscuits. Somebody made them.  She, of course,...
