Tick, Tock

Friday, August 26, 2011

Slowly but surely, the time is ticking away. Okay, so it really isn't that slow...it actually seems to be flying by.

What is this time I am speaking of? No, it is not "time to make the donuts," but in case you readers are not aware, there is a "bun in the oven."

In around seven weeks, if the Oct. 17, due date is accurate, my wife and I will welcome our newest addition to the world, which, according to Dr. Patty of Poplar Bluff, will be a bouncing baby girl. The new addition will make a matching set for us.

Needless to say, her momma is already preparing several hair bows, some of which were made by Mary Jane Damron, and other accessories to make what is sure to be a beautiful baby even prettier, if that's possible.

While momma is getting ready with all the little doodads, I've been busy myself...memorizing the lyrics to Rodney Atkins', "Cleaning this Gun."

After Hours

The third installment of the Chamber of Commerce's "Business After Hours" was held last night at Heritage Nursing Center's new rehab facility, Homeward Bound.

The event was held in conjunction with a VIP Open House and ribbon cutting ceremony for the new wing.

Chamber members from the various entities around Kennett attended the event, and were treated to finger foods and fellowship.

Special thanks to Lisa Johnson and her crew for hosting the event.

Friday Night Lights

Kennett Indian football season officially kicks off tonight, as the Tribe takes on the Charleston Bluejays.

I wanted to take a moment to wish Coach Adkisson and his team the best of luck in the upcoming season.

For those of you who may be out of town of some Friday nights, don't forget that the home games will be webcast live on the Kennett Indians Sports Network, at www.dddnews.com/kennettindians.

George Anderson is the managing editor of the Daily Dunklin Democrat.
