The reunion of the 1963 Heflin Tiger football team was a tremendous success. Last Saturday, a reception and dinner was held to honor this team and coaches. An enthusiastic crowd of former teammates, fans and friends attended both events. As the old saying goes…”A great time was had by all.” Many thanks to all individuals who helped make this an event to remember.

A Little This and That
1.Smith Farms will officially open on October 19. There will be some very exciting things going on that day that will be fun for the whole family. Check the paper for times and details.
2.Don’t forget to put October 12 on your calendar. That is the date for the Festival of Hearts at the Heflin Recreation Center. This big day is sponsored by our own Cleburne County HEARTS. The profits will benefit people from all over our area.
3.My friend Jerry Cheatwood shared a couple of “gems” with me this week. He is a fan of words of wisdom. Here are his: “Don’t ever be so open minded that your brain falls out!” And, (seen on a sign outside of a church), “ You are not too BAD to come inside and you are not too GOOD to stay outside.” Thanks Jerry!
4.Please continue to help me update my lists. If you need to add or remove names, please send me that information to PO Box 924-Heflin or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
5.I know that I am over six decades old, but really…SOME of the television shows for the new season are way out there! As a matter of fact, I developed three categories for classification purposes: 1. Violent and scary…lots of blood. 2. Sexually explicit. Too adult oriented. 3. Just plain DUMB. Not much to choose from, right? Now I know that there are some shows that will be delightful and family friendly. Many of our old favorites will be returning with new episodes and for that I am thankful. Let’s just say that the jury is still out.
Until next week…remember…Opportunity may only knock once, but temptation leans on the doorbell.
