Sis was in the 10th grade at Jonesville High School. One day during math class, the teacher asked Sis, “If you bought 12 cantaloupes at $1.25 each and then sold them at 99 cents each, would you show a profit or loss?” Sis said, “Well teach, after using my Chinese calculator I got it figured out. I would lose on the dollars, but gain on the cents!!”
What A Difference 25 Years Makes
This quote comes to me from Mr. J.D. Bright. It was passed on to him by ol’ Doug Humphries. “Twenty-five years ago we had Ronald Reagan, Bob Hope and Johnny Cash. Twenty-five years later we have Obama, no hope and no cash!!”
The Way To Criticize

A Very Special Birthday
On Oct. 1, Sis Haney will celebrate a birthday. Sis would not say how old she would be, but did say that she was born back when dinosaurs roamed the earth. For all the stories I have written about her, I plan to make it up by taking her to the Waffle House and then to Vic Bailey Ford about dark and watch the lights come on. Many more to you Vivian.

My friend, Mr. Howard Whitehead, must have a severe case of amnesia. He went to the Laurens-Union County football game and was so excited he couldn’t remember who was playing and could not remember the final score. There’s a pill for that. It is called Aricept.
If you live long enough, you will make mistakes, but if you learn from them, you will be a better person.
