Fox's Den: Lots of activity in and around Greenbrier

Posted: July 7, 2014 - 4:30pm

Step into my den, pull up a comfy chair and a cup of tea and let’s chat.

“Yes, nephew Mortimer stumbles onto his aunt's secret just as his murderous, escaped-convict older brother Jonathan returns home with his sniveling accomplice Dr. Einstein.” If this sounds like a good night’s laugh, it’s all waiting for you at Conway Dinner Theater’s production of Arsenic and Old Lace July 18, 19, 25, 26, Aug 1 & 2. Mark your calendar and visit their web site for tickets at www.faulkneracademyofarts.org . Under the direction of Kim Norris from Wooster, many of our local people are stars in this production.

Don't forget the Red Cross blood drive this week too. They will be at the Greenbrier City Event Center Thursday, July 10 from 9:30 to 1:30 p.m. in their mobile unit. Walk-ins are welcome. Just remember to be well nourished and drink lots of water prior to going.

Yes, my three dogs did not yelp, bark or cower and even my cat survived July 4 celebrations with all the loud noises, although my cat was quite happy to curl up as close to me as possible when I went to bed. At least the corner fireworks stand was respectful of the Greenbrier ordinance for quiet after 11 p.m. this year. There were still a few "stray booms" around 11:30 p.m.; but not like some years past when I chased them down in my nightgown at 2:30 a.m. My, that had to be a sight: an angry woman in her nightgown coming after fireworks people! It is amazing what one will do when sleep deprived! I can laugh about it now; but it was no laughing matter two years ago when I also had a Standard Poodle who was old, cowered and howled at the sound of fireworks--which, of course, set off the other three dogs in the house. Sunshine is now deceased so July 4 is a tad more peaceful around my house.

Time is drawing close for city candidates who will be running for office to sign up. July 22 is the big day when one Mayoral candidate will register, Sammy Joe Hartwick.   I also know of a few other City Council candidates planning on being there; but I'm not spilling the beans yet. Too bad I will be out of town on signing day; but you know I will keep you posted.

Wilma Robinson sent kind words to me this week about their church's homecoming celebration saying, " I do appreciate your section on Greenbrier and surrounding communities. You do a great job.   Love your opening, 'Come into my den'--very inviting."   Thanks very much, Wilma. I hope we can meet someday.

Many of you are now viewing my many photographs on-line at www.spotted.thecabin.net and are sending me comments. Thank you for your kind remarks.

‘Til next time...
