By Mike Watson
The first thing I do each morning upon waking is thank God I've made it through another night.
Next, I pick up my cell phone and check the weather; then to Columbia Magazine where I check the daily Haiku by Robert Stone.
Then I put on my glasses, stand up and continue with the day's rituals.
My point here is: I enjoy Robert Stone's continued contributions to CM and look forward to each one. He is an artist. The selection for 1 June
Those with rough raisingis one that resounded with me. Studying the history and people of this county for more than forty years has made me acutely aware that there are many paths in the wood and many different shoes strike each path.
That said, I must confess that I've been lurking on the fringes for several weeks, accomplishing little in my study of local history--that's not to say I haven't learned anything, but I haven't been a faithful participant.
The articles and photographs offered up on CM are always of interest to me, and I check the progress of the site several times each day, often waiting for someone to reply to queries with helpful clues--and they usually do.
"Jim's Gems" are always a treat and the Pik Nik Palace piece of Sunday (STORY) is a jewel! Who doesn't appreciate a great piece of research on a subject as pertinent in the grand scheme--and the new 'chicken palace of 2018' just opened three days ago!!
Thanks to all involved for keeping history, long past and recent, at the forefront!
