Some things are just hard to ‘git’
The Salisbury Post calls it “darts and laurels.” I’m gonna call mine “git and don’t git.”
Here are some of the things I don’t “git.”
“The biggest thing we did is put the farmers back in Farmers Day,” Whithers said.
He must have been talking about a different Farmers Day than the one this past Saturday in China Grove. But I would like to thank him for having it in the fall this year.
The second thing I don’t “git” is the pet ban. I was there for two hours and counted six different dogs. And not one of them was a basset hound.
Maybe the officials there don’t know how to identify a dog.
It is very simple.
If it looks like a dog, barks like a dog and smells like a dog, it’s a dog.
The third thing I didn’t “git” was some of the ads in the Sunday and Monday papers about spending $20 on the 20th. Especially that one for shoes for $49.99.
Now here is just one that I did “git.”
That fine letter in today’s paper (Monday) by R. Howard Andrews (“Bible isn’t only basis for society’s rules and morals”).
Thanks, Howard, and keep up the good work.
ó Whitey Harwood
