Oh, to be crazy and get paid for it

I usually don’t complain a lot. When I do I get caught in some dilemma that I can’t talk my way out. You think I would learn my lesson, but I’m still in the learning curve.

It was a long week, and the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I had a busy schedule. She went her way, I went my way and the Spousal Twain only meets after the week’s work is done.

Some weeks are better than others, but some aren’t. And I was having a rather dismal week with a few things going wrong. For one, my vehicle needed to go to the garage to be fixed.

Football is finally back as the Jena Giants traveled to Vidalia this past Friday to take on the Vikings in a scrimmage. It has been a long wait for the team but their patience finally paid off when the LHSAA announced that there would be an 8 week regular season starting this Friday night.

The Giants were able to play a scrimmage this past Friday in order to fine tune and find out what needs to be worked on before the first official game. The Giants played very well as they scored 5 times and did not allow the Vikings to score at all.

Senior quarterback Jordan Jackson played well as he had numerous long runs and com-pleted passes to 4 different receivers including new tight end senior Logan Brown. Running backs Brennan Deville and Brandon Williams had a couple of long runs.

Army Intelligence

It was the time of the Korean War, and Carl knew that if he didn’t sign up for the military, he would be drafted. If he signed up, he would have two advantages. First, he would have a say in what branch of the military he went in to, and second, he could become an officer. He chose the army.

I’ve about had a belly full of this year and what 2020 has thrown at us. First, the coronavirus has essentially shut us down. When it began, we were housebound, almost afraid to peek out the door when someone knocked, especially if they weren’t wearing a mask.

Former Jena Lady Giant remembered

Former Jena Lady Giant remembered

My Jena Times newspaper was a day late getting to me due to the little wind storm that came through (LOL), and caused our entire parish to go without electricity for days.

Anyway, I am glad things are beginning to get back to normal! I am at the age where the first thing I read are the obits, mainly to make sure my name is not listed, but today one of my renown 1956 class members was on the list!

That name was Violet Austin Keene! Violet was a great Lady Giant basketball player. 1956 was the first of many state basketball championships Coach Jelly Pigott won in her Hall of Fame career. Violet was the king pin of that great 1956 team. She was joined by other great Lady Giants – Eula McCartney, Tasca Gray, Sandra Griffin, Patsy Clark, and Doris Bignar.
