Montgomery Locals Aug. 17, 2106

By Staff | Aug 18, 2016

Can I come right out and admit that the heat wave this past week has been just plain cruel? Multi-day heat advisories are not my cup of tea. I don’t care for days with temperatures over one-hundred degrees and sickeningly high humidity.

Decades ago before air-conditioning in private residences was available, it wasn’t uncommon for adults to sit through hours of cartoon matinees in movie theatres on weekends to escape the heat. For ten cents a ticket, it was money well spent.

I’m ready for fall. I want some chilly days, thick sweaters, and warm soup, not to mention some apple cider and candy corn. But in all fairness, readers, when winter rolls around I will be whining for summer (and I know I won’t be the only one). Consider yourselves warned.

THOT “I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good thing, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow human being let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” -Stephen Grellet

Birthday wishes are sent to Lori Wallis who will be celebrating her big day on August 17th.

Happy birthday to Nicole Keen who will begin another trip around the sun on August 20th.

The bridge over Black Hole Creek that connects Old Road and Pinchtown Road will remain closed until further notice.
