Brooks, Brenda.jpg

During my earlier history classes, one of my history professors advised that “those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.” Given the issues we’re dealing with right now, we seem to remember lessons from the past.

The French have an expression: “Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.” The more things change, the more they stay the same. That may well be the most accurate description of the outcome of the 2012 national elections.

Hosts Janece and Louie Miller and JoAnn and Richard Taylor suggested the Caney Lake Good Sammers get some old clothes on, get their belongings, tie them up in a kerchief, throw that stick over their shoulder and come to the “Hobo Gathering” at Colfax Lock and Dam R.V. Park in Colfax on Oct. 24-27.
The Caney Lake Campers weren’t quite sure who all those “hobos” were that came through the door the next day. But they all brought their can of “grub” to make a huge Hobo Stew Pot for lunch.
