  1. Jennie,
    Thanks for the article on “Sheets” in today’s paper. It brought back many similar memories of trips to my grandparents’ farm in Mt. Hope, Alabama “back in the day.” I imagine Alabama and Arkansas were not too different when it came to long, humid summer nights. The difference for me was there was no attic fan to assuage some of the heat; in fact, there was no fan at all. But those were some of the best memories of my childhood days! Thanks!

  2. Jennie,

    I am writing in response to your article in the Herald Citizen on Sept. 20, 2015. I enjoy reading your articles, and I too am a conversationalist. The rude young lady in front of you is the one who should have been chiding herself. I know if I had been holding up a line that long, I would have been apologizing to people in line behind me, and I would have told the cashier to forget about the stamps. Many of this younger generation are missing manners among many other things. I, for one, would have loved to been in line in front of you, and I would have used that time to pick your brain. I have been told by many people that I should write a book about my life. Maybe some day I will get that opportunity. You are an inspiration to others, so keep doing what you are doing.

  3. Hello Jennie, I meant to contact you before your 2nd column on the Sky Wheel came out, but alas, didn’t get around to it.
    So just for your own information, I did ride that sky wheel and loved every second of it. I haven’t been to a county fair in years, but my son and his family invited me this year and I accepted it. My daughter-in-law was going to ride it with me, that was the plan, but…at the last minute she had a change of heart.
    So I got my son to ride with me. It was after dark and it was w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l!
    All the beautiful fairway lights to see and the breeze in my hair! Just wanted you to know! Sincerely Marge G.of Livingston. ps, I was 81 on the 11th

  4. I just read your column in today’s Herald Citizen and want to thank you for the information about Styrofoam. Thank you for taking a stand for our environment! It may have been a bit embarrassing but I’m sure like it made a permanent impression on your fellow diners and the waitress. Starting today I’ll put aluminum foil in my purse for restaurant leftovers.
    Thank you again for taking a stand and for enlightening your readers, who for whatever reason may not have known that it takes at least 50 years for Styrofoam to decompose.
