Kirstie Alley Got Second Place!

Land sakes! I couldn’t believe my eyes. Kirstie Alley won second place in Dancing with the Stars! Who would’ve thought an overweight, 60-year-old woman would have even made it past the first dance. But she hung in there and worked hard and reached second place.


Bessie Mae watches DWS and she kept raving about how Kirstie was dancing with this hunk. She even taped the last two shows and had me over for popcorn and a movie last night and then switched it to DWS. Such a trickster! But she was right, I enjoyed it. Kudos to Kirstie for making us oldies feel young, again. Although from her dazed expression, I wonder what drugs helped her survive the ordeal. Maybe hunger drove her.....

Good Teeth Means Higher Bride Price

I went to the dentist yesterday and Dr. Meadows had to tell me about how one of his patients told him good teeth in a woman were important in some cultures. Guarantees a good bride price when they marry her off. This useless piece of info got stuck in this patient's caw b/c fixing his wife's teeth has cost him a fortune. This guy even told Dr. M he wouldn't have married his wife if he'd a known her teeth were so bad!

Dr. M thought this was hilarious. Upshot was, he told me I would've brought a good bride price because I have good teeth. I smiled, showing off my good teeth. Didn't bother to point out how crooked the bottom ones are. There wasn't much money in my family for things like braces when I was a kid so Jeb lucked out when he married me.

People Tested Chairs

They went and built a new Civic Center and put the Senior Citizen Center in it. I sure wish they had people tested the chairs they bought for the place. The ones they bought have to be hardest chairs I’ve ever sat on. Well, I never was one for hanging out much at the Senior Citizen Center. And if I gotta to sit on those chairs I reckon I won’t be there very often.


It's no fun to think of myself as a senior citizen anyway. And as long as I stay away from mirrors and don't move too fast, I can forget I fall into that category.


Heard tell they found some Indian artifacts out at the Shady Creek development. Reckon that won't sit well with the board at Worthington's Bank since they invested in the development. It's going to be one of those mixed neighbors with some businesses, townhouses, garden homes and full size houses. Sounds like it'll be real nice, with sidewalks and all. That's one thing I never did understand. There's plenty of sidewalks in the older parts of town, but once they started putting in subdivisions, back in the 1960s, sidewalks went out the window. Here it is half a century later and someone in Tassanoxie finally realized sidewalks weren't such a bad idea after all.
