Classic Cars! Did I get your attention with that? Well, after the classic cars go through our Lockhart Parade, on Sunday, Dec. 4 (this Sunday), they will be parked in the big parking lot in the middle of town (previously known as the Mill Parking Lot). They’ll have their hoods up and trunks opened for a close look at these fabulous old autos.
We are honored that Shirley and Mike Smith will be this year’s parade marshals. We want everyone to remember what Allen Michael Smith and the men and women who served in Iraq and Afghanistan did for our country.
Vendors usually start setting up around 11 a.m. for the best spots. Jeannie Belue will be in charge of getting you set up. She should be around the Town Hall or parking lot, and her cellphone number is 251-0555. The Chester Shriners will be walking the street, selling their stuff, besides being at the parking lot. There will be boiled peanuts, funnel cakes, drinks, candy apples, etc. Maybe someone will be selling giftware, also. I think Laura Dabbs will be selling Avon Christmas items and jewelry in my yard at the beauty shop. Other than that I don’t know who all will come, but all vendors are welcome, FREE!
There will be a contest for floats, three plaques will be awarded after the parade at the Mill Parking Lot. Please be sure to pull onto Mill Hill in front of the church with your floats after you’ve gone through the parade. The judges are people from out of town and don’t know anyone here. The awards will be for Most Original, Most Attractive, and Best Theme. Please come for the festivities after the parade, to the center of town, I know you’re wanting to know who won the floats. We have “The Festival of Lights” after the parade, at the bell beside the First Baptist Church. We have guest singers that will entertain you.
The parade will start at 3 p.m. so get here kind of early to get a parking place on one of our side streets. There is a parking lot across from the Methodist Church, also. Bring your bags for candy, because there is always plenty of that.
A Visit To The Chiropractor
“No Pain No Gain” that’s what Dr. B.Sherman (my Chiropractor) told me today when she found a sore spot on my back. So now that’s going to be her motto, well with me anyway. If it doesn’t hurt then she isn’t in the troubled area. I told her when I gasp for air that only means she’s in the right place to fix. When I got up off her table-bed I actually didn’t grunt (like always). I never thought why my right hip was always uncomfortable, until she mentioned that that’s the foot and leg that I have pumped my beauty shop chair up and down for more than 40 years with. It makes sense, because the other side never hurts — well, except when I hurt my foot a few weeks, I put all my weight on the opposite side and made it sore, which she got the kink out of it, too. You know I mentioned my foot was not broke, but painful, well she started tapping on it and it is getting better, also.
A Different Kind Of Sport
Are you tired of turkey? We ate the left overs for days, we will not have turkey for Christmas. Thanksgiving day we watch a show I never heard of, you men will like this, Catfisting, that’s right, I said fisting. What a way to make a living. People go to a ranch and the men take a group to the river and they get in the water and put their feet down around the rocks feeling for catfish, then they put their hand in when they find one the catfish swallows their hand up to the elbow and they hook him and bring him up. They started in the small river and moved to the bigger ones, for giant catfish. This show had two girls from Beverly Hills, California. They were looking for something new for a vacation and there was a female tattoo artist, her husband and two other guys. But the females made the show, at first they didn’t want to feel the catfish and in the end they were kissing them. The tattoo gal actually would dive under to find the big rocks with the fish in them. My daughter said that was something for us to do on a day vacation.SURE!
Remembering An Old Friend
Gail Dabbs Garner, Gina and I were real sad that we missed Edna Gibson’s furneral, Monday. She was Gail’s aunt and a dear friend to us. But I told Gail we had funny memories of our times with her, and she knew we loved her. My sympathy goes out to her sisters and family. Her sisters really took good care of her, and I’m so glad she got to move closer to them. It was much easier than her being in Lockhart. She was such a jolly person, and a good baker of cakes.
Dale Cabiness is going to have a birthday on Dec. 4; BJ O’Dell’s is the 5th. So when you see these ladies sing to them. That’ll make their day.
Sorry this is short, but it’s late. Hope to see you Sunday. Goodnight. 545-6652
