Post Scripts: Martin Luther King’s Famous Quotes

PostScripts_WPNext Monday we celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. He was born Jan. 15, 1929, in Atlanta, GA, and died from an assassin’s bullet in Memphis, TN, on April 4, 1968. No doubt if he had lived longer the world would have benefitted through today from his greatness.

I could tell you many things about this great man, but no doubt you’ve heard them all. Mainly he fought

Post Scripts: More Things to Make You Laugh

PostScripts_WPMy joke file isn’t empty yet, although it’s getting close. The more you laugh the happier you will be and just maybe live longer. I promise to throw away what’s left in this one.

A grandfather was surprised by his 7-year-old grandson one morning when the boy brought him a cup of coffee. He drank what was probably the worst cup of coffee he had ever tasted but to keep

Post Scripts: Laughter is the best medicine

Do comedians live longer than the rest of us? Art Linkletter lived to a ripe old age and he still made 70 public appearances a year when he was 93. George Burns was just two months from 100 when he passed away. He loved to poke fun at his advanced age. One of his one-liners was “When I was a boy the Dead Sea was only sick.”

They’re hardly alone.

Post Scripts: New Year traditions

Did you know that celebrating of the new year was probably the oldest of all holidays? It was first observed in ancient Babylon about 4,000 years ago. Around 2000 B.C. they had an 11-day celebration for the season of rebirth in the spring when it was time to plant crops.

The Romans continued to observe the new year in late March, but their calendar was continually tampered with by various

Post Scripts: Reminiscing Christmases Past

It has been 60 years that I have been putting my Post Scripts in the Gallatin paper. It’s hard to believe, but it was March, 1952, that we moved to Gallatin. At this Christmas season I have been reflecting upon all the Christmases we have had as a family.

The first newspaper we had after I returned from World War II was at Natoma, KS, where we printed two newspapers,

Post Scripts: The season for Christmas legends

Once upon a time, long ago, a gentle mother was busily cleaning the house for the most wonderful day of the year, the day on which the Christ child came to bless the house. Not a speck of dust was left. Even the spiders had been banished from their cozy corner in the ceiling to avoid the housewife’s cleaning. They finally fled to the farthest corner of the attic.

Post Scripts: We can’t forget Pearl Harbor

We can’t forget Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. I was scrubbing the floor of the mess hall at Ft. Leavenworth, KS, a month after I was drafted, hoping I would serve in the army a year. All of a sudden we were told that the Japs had bombed Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. Immediately, I knew my Army service would last more than a year. It became four years.

We’ve

Post Scripts: A smile a day keeps the doctor away

Thanksgiving is over and now it’s time for the hustle and bustle of Christmas. You don’t stop laughing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop laughing.

They haven’t thought of a way to tax you for laughing — at least not yet.

Here are some things to smile about that are in the Bible. First are a few questions and answers.

Q: Who was the greatest female

Post Scripts: Thanksgiving Remembrances

It was Sept. 6, 1620, when two ships, the Speedwell and the Mayflower, left Plymouth, England, for a new homeland where they could worship God as they pleased. The Speedwell developed a leak and had to return to England. But the Mayflower landed on Cape Cod Nov. 11, 1620. It is now known as Plymouth Rock, Mass. After a cold hard winter they were able to plant crops with the
