I was fascinated by fellow writer, Larry Woody, in last weeks paper. I really enjoyed that bit of important information. I have been thinking about it ever since I read it. The young deer are getting ready to have their little ones. Larry was warning the public to stay away from them. I have very little trouble keeping my distance from most of the wildlife. Rattle snakes and all of their cousins come to mind. I promise I will never bother them or their young. I have been told that if you carry a flash light, snakes won’t bother you. My old uncle told me about that, and said, “You have to carry it real fast.”

We must recognize that we are all given our skin tones by our Creator God. If we can root for a person with a darker color than ours on our favorite sports team, than we must stop the nonsense of racial prejudice.
