LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
That’s a grand total of almost 50 years. I have never quit any job I ever had and I’m not quitting now. I thought it was time to retire.
If I win any first-place awards at the Kentucky Press Association meeting this January, I will try to attend, providing someone will let me ride with them. In Willie’s speech, he said they had to wait on me to get my hair done so that I would look nice for the meeting. He also noted they had to make room for a gallon of pre-mixed screwdrivers I took with me so that I could drink a little before the free bar opened. That’s an exaggeration, should anyone think I’m more than just a social drinker. It was a quart and not a gallon and it was meant for me and anyone else who wanted to share a drink before the bar opened. KPA is only once a year by the way.
I’m not saying good-bye because that seems so final. I’m not going anywhere but home. I may, from time to time, be a contributing writer to the Sentinel-Echo.
Happy trails until we meet again.
