The Chatter Box

By Deborah Bennett

We have completed our move at The Millen News and I am still trying to find everything again. I think I put things that I use everyday where I can find them easily, and then I end up having to look for them!

Lately, that seems to be the case at home as well, and no moving has been involved there. I just seem to “hide” things from myself. While I can blame the misplaced items at work on our moving, I’ve finally decided there has to be a “gremlin” in my house which is moving things around just to torment me.

Nothing is safe. Among the temporarily “misplaced” items that I have eventually discovered in strange places is my tooth brush, hair brush, cooking spray, glasses, cell phone, house phone, car keys, checks, a glass of tea I just poured and the mail. I won’t even begin to tell where I found some of the items. That gremlin is pretty silly!

Hopefully, things will soon get back to normal at work insofar as my being able to find things again. As for my home, that remains to be seen. I may need to employ a “gremlin exterminator”! Can you handle that, I Spy exterminators?

I am having knee surgery next week and will be out of the office for several weeks recovering at home. You may continue to e-mail items to us for inclusion in the newspaper. However, calls to the office will be forwarded to The True Citizen for assistance. You may also call the Citizen at 706- 554-2111 for assistance. Please do not drop items in the drop box on the door. No one will be in the office to get them.

I am planning on working from home as much as I can during my absence in the office. Hopefully, that goes as planned.

Happy birthday this week to: Elaine Williams, Jasper McKinzie, David Brown, Matt Bazemore, Megan Bazemore, Ronnie Fleming, Joy Clifton, Zadell Wilson, Seth Linder, Cleo Anthony and Ansley Burke.

Happy anniversary this week to: Mr. and Mrs. Bill Knight Sr.
