  • Crouching kitties at the door

    For the past few months we’ve been taking care of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target, while our daughter spends some time with my sister in California.
    They’re both gray tabby cats, each about 10 years old.
    My husband calls Mohawk “Hawkeye” or “Hawk” and I’ve nicknamed Target “the weasel” because he’s long and he slinks through the house like I imagine a weasel would.
    Lately, we’ve noticed another cat hanging around, white with butterscotch coloring.

  • Call it a draw: Lady Jags, Lady Cats win 2 each in volleyball matchup

    With the conclusion of this week’s
    FHSAA-member school volleyball action, there will only be one more week of regular season volleyball before district tournaments start the week of Oc. 19.  
    This week actually marks the end of district play for our four county teams — Munroe, Tallavana Christian, East Gadsden and West Gadsden. Districts with a large number of teams will actually begin on the 19th with tournaments culminating usually on a Thursday in order to not compete with Friday night football.
    Last week in volleyball action:

  • Warriors topple RFM Bobcats 38-8


  • Jags mauled by Bulldogs

    The Jags played their first district game of the season at home this past Friday against the Bulldogs of Marianna High.
    After a tight first quarter, in which the Bulldogs gained a 7-0 advantage they quickly extended their lead with two touchdowns within the first two minutes of the second period.

    I bet she would be a little upset with herself if she knew that ever since she made the comment, way back in May: “Those glasses are awful; they don’t do a thing for you,” that I’ve been going crazy switching them back and forth with another pair she found acceptable.
    I don’t even see well with the pair she favors.
    Oh well ...
    Yes, faithful readers, I do remember I recently wrote about eye glasses.
