I Am Famous....Or Is That Infamous?

Am I Famous Infamous or what?  I know movie stars that don't get this much attention.  The first week we lived in Rock Mills we made the local paper, "The Leader."  In the Rock Mills column was a little blip welcoming us to the area.  A few weeks later we were in the paper again when the church held a welcoming cookout in our honor.  I need to let you know that the local paper comes out every Wednesday.....period!  This past week we were in the paper once more.  This is how the bigger than a blip read:  " Recently Rock Mills Volunteer Fire Department has had two medical calls, one weather and one fire(controlled burn) responses.  The grant for new equipment is in process.  I(Ms Sherry Yarbrough) will keep you informed.  Thank you, Rock Mills, for your support.  The first department is here for you.  The RMVFD aslo wants to welcome Rev. Frank Korb as their newest member.  He brings both professional and volunteer fire department experience to our group.  We also want to welcome Rev. Frank and Ms. Karen again to our community.  We're sorry to hear that Ms. Karen took a fall this weekend and has a bad sprain.  We hope she recovers soon."  Yeppers...that was me...I was one of the two medical calls they got last week.  Geez-o-pete....can't a girl fall down in a rabbit hole(I guess I was trying to play Alice in Wonderland) on a Sunday morning in her yard, while in her pajamas, and NOT make the paper?  Obviously not in Rock Mills.  Maybe next time I make the paper it will be for something a little less klutzy.  LOL!  Today was Monday....week two of school has begun...maybe it will be an uneventful week for me.  I certainly hope so.  Happy Trails to All!  Keep it between the ditches.

Yep, you'd better mind your "P's and Q's" or else everybody in Rock Mills will know about it! That is so funny! :D

hahaha Funny stuff in small town papers. Well, not that you falling in a rabbit hole is funny...

When John and I first moved to Dadeville, they did a similar write up the The Dadeville Record. They "introduced" John as Dr. John Vest, a radiologist at Russell Hospital. haha Wish he had the pay a radiologist gets!

Today I had my students read orally, and in 3 out of 4 classes, the word "infamous" was mispronounced. Go figure.
