By Tammy Sexton, The WAVE, FM 99.9 FM
Because you don't get to run into your elementary school principal just any day! I was so glad to see Mr & Mrs Billy and Joyce Ann Rodgers Thursday and tickled they didn't mind me interrupting their Walmart shopping adventure.
I was excited he remembered who I was although I may have name-dropped that I was from the "Jason Stone era".
I can still see Mr Rodgers now with his mustache, his handsome sportcoat, and his transition lenses.
I think Chris Reeder wore one just like it to emcee a Christmas play one year and was then referred to as "Vice Principal".
Anyway . . . those were all good memories of Sparksville days and I'm grateful for each and every one of them.
Although they did not ask for it, would everyone remember Mrs Joyce in prayer as she recovers from her shoulder surgery and remember Mr Rodgers as he has an upcoming back surgery. - Tammy Sexton
