Step into my den, pull up a comfy chair and a cup of tea and let’s chat.
Remember that old question on your first day back to school? What did you do last summer? Our Greenbrier High School senior Sam Harris is in Jalna, Maharashtra, India this summer. He emailed me saying, “I won't return until Aug. 15 — just in time for school!” That sure beats any summer I ever spent, even as an adult! I can't wait to get his story upon his return. If you remember, Sam is our FFA scholar I wrote about who is bent on learning how to feed the world with nutritious food you can grow yourself. He wants to solve starvation problems around the world.
It’s the last weekend for Conway Dinner Theater's production of Arsenic and Old Lace. Both the play and the meal deserve rave reviews. Friday August 1 is a theater only performance. Saturday Aug. 2 is dinner and show. The menu is inspired by the play and the entree of roast beef is scrumptious. Step back into the 1940's and enjoy an evening of hilarity. Call 501-339-7401 or go on-line www.faulkneracademyofarts.org. All tickets must be reserved early as they are going fast!
Can you believe that school registration is next week? Parents are driving themselves crazy with school supply lists, not to even mention the cost of clothes for school. I simply do not understand the cost of shoes and fancy jeans that kids feel are "must-haves" these days. Sneakers can go as high as $99 to $125 for the kind that kids want and ordinary $15 jeans are pooh-pooh items on their lists. If you multiply just one outfit times three children in a family, it can really add up. It's no wonder there are now two working parents in a family these days!
Don't forget to visit the Wooster Farmers' and Crafters' Market Saturday morning. I had fun there this Saturday and will feature a gardener with his healthy market items next week. Shop locally.
‘Til next time……
