One step ahead

By LOTTIE BOGGAN,

“Your mother would have been dancing on the table,” a man said to me as my friends and I walked out of church.

“I was thinking the same thing,” I answered him, wondering how in the name of Tom Thunder this younger man could have known my mother that well.




Crack the whip

My cruise-mate Edrie Royals and Jackson companions Margaret Vise, Ann Barksdale, Carole Kirkland and I were on a Danube River cruise and our boat had docked near Kalosca, Hungary.

The tour Edrie and I had picked out for this stop was the cowboy rodeo in Kalosca.



The cowboys need some help

I can’t carry a tune in a lard bucket, but on this day I could almost hum, same song, second verse in perfect voice. A group of ladies from Jackson, Ann Barksdale, Margaret Vise, Carole Kirkland, cruisemate Edrie Royals and I were on a Danube River cruise. Our ship, the Viking Jarl had docked in Kalosca,  we would be there until late evening.


Back aboard

I check my watch — 4:20 and almost time for my afternoon dog walk with Roo Roo.

Before I put my raincoat on, and command Roo to a sit position so I can hook her up, I open a scrapbook of my Sun articles, and turn to one written three years ago today.

I check the time. 11:55 p.m. On this night, I’m not dancing or raising a glass of champagne as a band plays nostalgic tunes and ushers in the New Year.


Are you listening

My brother Alvin and his wife Becky had brought me to a Christmas sing-along at the brightly decorated Country Club of Jackson. On this night we were downstairs in the Onyx, a room filled with joyous, celebrating people calling out hellos and greetings to one another.



Christmas gifts

By LOTTIE BOGGAN,

“Iraq Vet. I’m hungry and cold. Help me.” On my way to the grocery, stopping for a red light, I donated to a sad-faced man wearing combat fatigues and holding a cardboard sign.

A few minutes later, parked and heading into the store a passing car slowed down and someone waved me over.
