Unless you have been living under a rock for the past several months, you know the story of the Mayan calendar and how it is said to predict the end of the world as we know it on December 21, 2012. Hence, the countdown has begun.

I usually remain silent when I hear someone cluck "I'm all finished with my Christmas shopping."
It especially grates on my nerves when I hear this uttered about September or so. Some who say such seem to do so with an air of "I'm so perfect that I can't imagine doing it any other way."
To my ears, they speak with foreign tongue.
I have a friend who sometimes completes her shopping as early as July. It's amazing that we've had enough in common to remain friends for 35 years.

Harvey Boyd "Slick" Reeves, 80, of Benton passed away Wednesday, Dec. 12, in Little Rock.  He was born March 2, 1932 in Humphrey, to the late Hazel and Melda Iona Moore.
Harvey’s greatest joy came from working.  He was involved in carpentry, construction, excavation and gardening. Most recently his best times were spent digging for the plumbers and working in the raised bed community garden. He always enjoyed hunting trips to Colorado, deer clubs all over Arkansas and a good ride on an unbroken horse.
