Can you believe high school football practice begins around the first of August, which is not too far away? i don't know how they can stand the heat. I love my high school football and am a member of the Booster Club.

I wish we could have brought back the weather from the mountains this weekend. It was a "scorching" 76 degrees. There were moderate breezes and not a cloud in the sky. A blanket was required at night and when we went to Lake Lure for the fireworks we had a jacket. With the 90s here this week, we would like to go back.

This is an early reminder of the Memorial United Methodist Church "Trash and Treasure Sale" on August 23. There will also be a handbag and jewelry sale at the same time. I will mention this again soon.

Here is a senior quip on getting older.
A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor's office. "Is it true? " she wanted to know. "The medication you prescribed has to be taken for the rest of my life?"
”Yes, I'm afraid so, " the doctor told her. There was a moment of silence before the senior lady replied, "I'm wondering, then, just how serious is my condition because this prescription is marked no refils.”
One of our friends in the mountains said it is really bad when the names in your address book has the letters M.D. after them.
