Holabird Picks Up Australian Reader
Yesterday's Special Report garnered some interest by a WWII vet from down under. Eric Shackle, an octogenarian sends greetings from Sydney, Australia. He writes:
I enjoyed visiting your website, and was interested in your reference to John Zilverberg being the oldest blogger in your state.
You may like to read a story about the world's oldest blogger. It's posted at http://english.ohmynews.com/articleview/article_view.asp?menu=c10400&no=339728&rel_no=1
Best wishes, Eric.
Hinkles Pass St. Louis, Louie
Darrel Hinkle reported last night that he and his family made it through St. Louis, Missouri and he planned to drive for another hour or so. It looks like they are well on their way to Georgia. They had pretty smooth travelling except for some slippery roads in the Sioux City, Iowa area, and some rather aggressive drivers in St. Louis, who like to run him off the road.
This morning, at about 10:45 they called to inform us that Darrel had just traversed across Paducah, Kentucky, so barring the unforeseen, they should be in Georgia sometime tonight.
Doing Unto Other Keeps Both You Warm
by Jerry Hinkle, Holabird Advocate Publisher
So you say it's cold outside! Subzero temps got you down in the dumps. Nothing on TV, but you still watch it 18 hours a day. Well instead of keeping tabs on the nutty broads in Wisteria Lane, do unto others. It's the very latest thing. It's gonna catch on too.
There is a small group of ladies in the Methodist Church in Highmore that have started a Prayer Shawl Ministry. They knit together a shawl with a certain person in mind, all the while in prayer for the expectant recipient. When the shawl is completed, the one who knitted it presents the shawl to the person they made it for. If you don't knit, and want to learn, help is available. If you don't want to learn, you can still buy yarn for someone who does.
The Methodists also a sock ministry. This is for people with more money than time. Just go to a store that sells socks and send them to a homeless shelter near you. If there is no shelter near you, send it to the Highmore Methodist Church, and let them sort it out. Now, they only want new socks, do don't go boxing up your old holy socks for them. Send them to me, because I like to wear worn out socks.
