Daily Tidbit for Friday: There is only one Birthday for today, and that lucky person is Sueanna Braxton! Happy Birthday to Sueanna!
Saturday is Birthday time for, once again, Nobody! Happy Birthday again Nobody!
And Sunday is Birthday time for one more good person! Michelle Tews Fondren celebrates her birth today! Happy Birthday Michelle!
We went to Greenwood yesterday to see an old friend. She is a resident in the same nursing home that we were in when we were recovering from all that surgery.
When we asked her who all had been to see her, she replied, “You and my daughter!”
Folks, don’t forget those friends who are sick or laid up. A visit can mean an awful lot to them. Praying for them is great, but a visit can make their whole day! Trust us on this one, we know!
And as we step down from our high horse, we also went to the Book Talks Lecture Series when we got back to town and we have to say that Malcolm White was a very good speaker.
While we were grazing on some of the delicious Hor d’oeuvres set out by Chris Card and her employees, we had the pleasure of catching up with some of Clarksdale’s more literate folks. They are always fun to talk to and you can obtain so much info while listening to them. See what you missed by not being there?
Anyway, a good time was had by all and if you had to miss it, the DVD will be available to check out at the Carnegie Public Library sometime next week.
However, we went straight home from there and then found out that Yazoo Pass had FREE wontons last night! FREE! And we missed them! We really need to find where we hid that time machine!
And here is the last reminder for this week that Sarah Levingston and Lewis Czamanske will be playing acoustic guitar and singing at Stone Pony this Friday starting at 7:00 p.m.
Also, on Saturday 7:00 p.m., Barefoot Workshops will present: A Photo Documentary Screening at the Clarksdale Train Depot, 326 Blues Alley. Also Known as The Tourism Office.
So, go on by and have a good time watching the photo documentaries on subjects such as John Ruskie (He sure has been getting a lot of mention on this blog lately. Maybe we need to start charging for it!), Fr. Scott Thomas, William Foster, T’Keyah Burnett and Yunari Johnson. For more info, go to www.barefootworkshops.org.
Today is not the last day you can register to vote in the upcoming primary by paying a visit to your friendly, local neighborhood Circuit Clerk’s Office. No, they are usually open to noon on Saturdays before the registration deadline as well. But go ahead and do it today before something happens and you cannot get there tomorrow!

Have a great weekend Clarksdale and Coahoma County.
