Kathy Bassett's column, "The View from Maybell," appears in the Saturday Morning Press.
Stories this photo appears in:
My poor momma cat is wearing herself thin moving her newest batch of babies here and there. First they went in the haystack, then under a big stock tank and then under the house, just to keep them safe from the skunks, coons and coyotes.
Suddenly, my funny bone eludes me. I can't think of anything funny, nor do I want to. It is sad to lose a dear friend. Greg Scott was a dear friend.
William Brown from Missouri ran away from home when he was 14. In order to hide his whereabouts, he always told a story that he was born and raised in a different town than where he actually was.
We love our little town of Maybell. It doesn't have skyscrapers or movie theaters, and we don't even have one single traffic light. We have things that are far more important, however, such as real live deer and other kinds of wildlife in the front yard, a fun park where lots of fun things happen, and best of all, we have super, wonderful, caring people who live here. We are privileged.
