Please, Gov. Bryant, have the courage to change our flag before something ugly happens in our state.


I just wonder who is going to reimburse those many states and organizations that put up the statues in the first place. If there isn’t a lawsuit yet I predict there will be one in the near future.

Any ideas?

Does anyone know where you can donate a used hospital bed?


Our family had a crisis on Sunday morning and the deputy who helped us was very kind and professional. A big “thank you” to the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office. I wish I knew his name, so I could thank him in person.


A Waste Pro truck left a stripe of hydraulic fluid all through our Gulfport neighborhood. How is it that the man riding the truck did not notice?

Why the need?

I don’t see why a free clinic is needed any more now that everyone has access to Obamacare. Maybe it doesn’t really work?

Do not use

Please Boycott and do not use the $1, $20, $50 and $100 bills, as they have images of slave owners on them. Please gather all of these hideous forms of racism and send them to me, and I will see to it that they are disposed of properly. You don’t have to thank me. I do this as a public service for my country.

Happy Day!

On Monday I think I saw a different view than most. Watching everyone looking up toward heaven with peace. Waiting for the momentous great event that was to take place. I could think only this is the way it will be on that great coming day. God in his glory comes to judge. Taking his children to that peaceful land, no hate, sickness. Happy day. Disagreement, violence gone.

Role model

I no longer live in Mississippi. I live in a large subdivision, and we have two large bins, one for garbage and one for recycling. The pickup service is once per week. No one complains, because it works. By the way, the garbage trucks in Mississippi used to drive down any street with garbage blowing out the rear of the truck all over the road. I drove behind them many times. I have never seen that happen in my new city/state. After each garbage pickup from a residence the garbage is crushed by the truck. Therefore there’s never anything to blow out. Enjoy your new large recycle bins and once-per-week service. It really works.
