Sis had purchased a new lawn mower from Jeffery Gault and decided to put her old one on the side of the road for sale.
Our new preacher, Rev. Glenn Ribelin had just moved into his new home at the parsonage and was in need of a lawn mower. He came by to try to start the lawn mower; he pulled the rope and pulled the rope until he was sweating.
Sis said to the nice reverend, “Preacher, in order to start that lawn mower you might have to use some curse words.”
Rev. Glenn told Sis, “Ma’am, I am a man of the cloth, it has been a long time since I used curse words, I really forgot how to use curse words.”
Sis said, “You keep pulling that rope it will all come back to you real soon.”
Mr. Ralph Harris over in Cherokee County offers this quote by Mary M. Morrissey: Start living now, stop saving the good china for that special occasion, stop withholding your love until that special person materializes. Every day you are alive is a special occasion.

“The Lizard Man”
Let me tell y’all this, you folks on the upper end of Pea Ridge should be on the lookout for a creature that has been nicknamed “The Lizard Man.” He has been spotted in homes eating off of the table and even takes food and blankets in the woods.
Don’t try to capture the “Lizard Man” if you spot him, take a picture. I am trying hard to get a picture of him.
