MISSISSIPPI RIVER BRIDGES

WILLIAM FAULKNER was an American writer and Nobel Prize laureate from Oxford, Mississippi. Faulkner is primarily known for his novels and short stories set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County, based on Lafayette County, Mississippi, where he spent most of his life. He wrote often about the Mississippi River and the people of the Deep South who were affected by her moods and yet depended on her for life. During one particularly bad flooding, he compared her to a mule when he said, “A mule will labor ten years willingly and patiently for you, for the privilege of kicking you once.”

SQUINT! SoCS on Sunday?

Squint!  See if you can tell what this little kid is doing.

Preacher’s brat no doubt.  Showing off just like his father!

Always a day late and a dollar short…!  I may not be late for church today, but I know I am late for the SoCS post.

Is that you?  Is it procrastination or what?  Maybe someone did not inform you in time and so you missed the bus.  You might miss church today too, but you did not miss this photo shoot.

Church.  Keep your mind on your business.

The preacher is saying we need to focus.  I see the lady across the aisle from me is eating chocolate!  What a hypocrite!  She should focus on why she came here!

The man in front of me is sleeping–hmmm!

Oh, did I remember to turn off the oven?  What if…?

When we all stand up to sing, I will sneak out early and probably nobody will notice.

APOLOGY

Today’s post required a bit of research and I goofed part of it. I must make one very important apology.

I said: SAPPY AS A TREE posted an article entitled Dear Miss Alcott. I feel connected to that writer. Forgive the bad grammar, but she is me. Do you ever feel that way about some stranger you meet online? She is a much younger lady than I, but her interests and her ideas mirror many of mine.  She has another blog called WRITE OUT OF DARKNESS. Be sure to read that one too.  I would elaborate, but why should I steal your joy in discovering her?

This evening I found out that Sandi has the blog WHAT OFT WAS THOUGHT and not the WRITE OUT OF DARKNESS as I stated. That lovely blog is authored by Terri.  I cannot imagine why or how I mixed up those two, but it happened.

My apologies to both ladies.
