Well, well, I hear Roy Smalley caught a 10-pound catfish on his tied-out lines in Corning Lake, Sunday night. I saw Roy going that way about six o'clock Monday morning and it was just a little while until I saw him headed for home, in such a rush that the car was going almost sideways... or maybe it was leaning from the weight of the catfish!
2020 has been a tough year not only for Corning, but also for other towns and their counties.
People who know me can tell by looking that the weather is warming up, the warmer it gets, the more I whack on my hair. I was working in the yard Saturday and I was hot, sweaty and dirty plus the fact that my hair kept falling down in my eyes. I stood it as long as I could, then went into the house, got the scissors and shortened my bangs, they won’t be anywhere near my eyes for the rest of the Summer. Most people who cut hair have the have special training or talent, not me, I don’t even have to take long enough to wash the dirt off my hands, just march into the bathroom, grab up a handful of hair and that’s all she wrote!
One of my favorite lines in the movie, “American President” is spoken by the character President Andrew Shepard played by Michael Douglas. During his campaign he gives a passionate speech and in part says, “America isn't easy. America is advanced citizenship. You've gotta want it bad, 'cause it's gonna put up a fight. It's gonna say, "You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours.” I think about that speech a lot these days.
