This is the time, year’s ago, I recall being so frustrated trying to find a place to file my taxes. I never knew having your taxes evaluated for free was an option. There are many places to file federal taxes for free, but getting state taxes is not as easy.

in
Boatright, T. Scott.jpg

Feeling cruddy is no fun. Unfortunately, that’s something I know all too well as I’ve been battling a case of the crud for at least a couple of weeks now.

Caney Lake Good Sammers Club

The cold, rainy day at the Pavilion RV Park in West Monroe on Jan. 23-26, 2013 didn’t dampen Nellie and Emory Ambrose and Mary Lynn and Jimmy Stothart’s warm welcome to the Caney Lake Good Sammers.
The attendees had “stone soup.” First, there is a stone boiling in the water which doesn’t really have much flavor. But then, people think of all sorts of canned vegetables they have in their rigs, with some meat from the hosts and “voila” it’s the cold-weather. Of course, the salads and desserts added the crowning touch.
