John and I must get out more.
I know I've posted this picture before but it's the only picture of something in our town that I have on here. Today I dropped John off at the dentist and went to one of our two very small thrift stores to look for books. They had a radio playing and I soon realized they were telling local news. I knew a body had been found yesterday on one of our favorite country roads right outside of town but that is all I knew. I stood listening as they were telling more. When I checked out I ask the lady what station they were listening to. She told me the number and Charlotte. Wow! John's little hometown has a radio station. How did we miss that? I'm impressed and happy as we usually have to wait until Wednesday when our little newspaper comes out to see what went on in our county. It's mostly old news by then. Lots of news going on now just like the big city. A man was found with a printer in a local motel printing up "funny money". Small plane crash at our little airport. Six people not hurt, thank goodness. No names in the paper, guess the pilot was embarrassed since he was trying to land incorrectly with or against the wind, not sure. A lady dropped her nine year old daughter at the hospital door with her social security card telling her they would take care of her. We used to have a radio station here for years. Now out of business for years. I'm excited to be able to hear our news when it happens and listen to good country music back to back.
