Needmore Days

Most of the folks who lived around Needmore were good honest, hard-working folks. They believed in God, in family and in their country. A few were not to be believed nor trusted.

If you're one of those parents or grandparents who pick up their children at school, the wait can be long if you get there early. Here are some tips: (1) I have done my nails, make a grocery list, take a magazine or do some extra paperwork. (2) I have a good friend, Amanda, who does her daily devotional at this time. She says it is a quiet time for her in the car.

That caused some real excitement for Aunt Alvie, and eventually caused some problems for Dooley as well. But, that is another story and we will tell about that some other time.

If you are movie buff, you know which movie this line belongs to, "You’re gonna need a bigger boat." When a great white was recently spotted on the Massachusetts coast line, this famous quote was drawn in the sand. In case you still don’t know, this line is from the movie ‘Jaws’.

It shall be woven with an artistic design of cherubim. You shall hang it upon the four pillars of acacia wood overlaid with gold. Their hooks shall be gold, upon for sockets of silver. And you shall hang the veil from the ...
