“You don’t SWEAT much for a fat lady.” This was number 4 on my list of backhanded compliments in last week’s column. Due to a type-o, it read, “You don’t SEAT much for a fat lady”. That within itself could take on a whole new meaning. There is only one meaning to this next statement…Happy birthday to you, my friends!

I am a little late with this, but it is important to say. I want to give a salute to the City of Heflin, Chamber of Commerce and the countless volunteers who turned a dreary, rainy Fourth of July into a spectacular day. Many of the planned events had to be moved into the Recreation Center, but the excitement was at a fever pitch. State and local talent rocked the gym and local food vendors gave us an amazing selection of delicious treats. The evening was capped off with a tremendous music and fireworks show. I can truly say that “a good time was had by all!”
Strange But True
Here are a few more funny facts that just might come in handy one day.
1. A giraffe’s has a tongue that is over 20 inches long. It cleans out its own ears. (Now that’s a mental picture I will not soon forget.)
2. On an average, right handed people live longer than left handed people.
3. Bees never sleep AND they have hair on their eyes. ( I would not sleep either!)
Until next week…remember…Not getting what you want and think you need can often be a wonderful stroke of luck.
