Dry Creek Flashes

Wanda Poss along with her traveling friends recently enjoyed a seven day trip to the beautiful Niagara Falls. Niagara means thundering waters. Canada was filled with rich history. There are four international bridges leading to Canada. The group crossed the International Rainbow Bridge. The first site the group saw was the American Falls and the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. The combination of Lake Erie flowing into Lake Ontario along with the steep cliff decent of the water flow makes the falls a sight of wonder and beauty. The falls were formed when melting glaciers formed massive fresh-water lakes, and the rushing ...

The Amen Corner

Sunday we celebrated as Father’s Day in the United States. What is the origin of Father’s Day? Mrs. Sonora Louise Smart Dodd decided that if we observe Mother’s Day, then we need to honor our fathers. Some claim that Father’s Day can be traced to Babylonia. Mrs. Dodd began a rigorous campaign to observe Father’s Day in June, 1910.

Needmore Days

 

I could tell Cousin Billy Clyde was praying, and he had lots of things to pray about. First, there was the oppressive heat of that sweltering August afternoon. We had no air conditioners at the Needmore Elementary School, nor did any other school in our part of the world. For that matter, none of us had air conditioners at home either. If someone had suggested that Billy Clyde might someday enjoy such a luxury, I think he would have burst out laughing. The very idea was unthinkable to any of us.

In the springtime Horny Heads, small fish with a bony covering on their heads, shoal in the Dry Creek stream.

The Horny Head fish were shoaling under the bridge traveling to W.O. Womack’s store in large numbers. Woodrow went off to teach school and left me with the task of catching fish. We worked all day trying to catch these fish off the shoal, but as soon as my hand touched one, it ...
