t, The Woodville Republican, Thursday, May 3, 2018 Page 3 Ap l 29, 2018 Dear Mr. Editor :::For some time now I been tellin' the Ole Man how bumfuzzle I get when I is shoppin' fer household products. It uster be an :easy thing to go buy soap a fl toothpaste and deodor- ~V;~ It weren't no whole lot ~t~Choices back in the day. I wuz a child, I rec- :61:I et how Mama would just buy Ivory soap, and !that one kind of soap would :wash dishes, give us our :baths and probable could :wash cl0thes'too. Now soap :comes in lots of brands, and :each brand done got lots of Colors and scents and no :scents. Back when I got old !e~uff to start needing de- odorant, seems like it uster ibejest Mum andArid. Now :it is shelves and shelves of brands, some what will make you smell good and some what jest keeps you from stinkin. Some kinds Training Offered ToPrivate Home Water Well owners South Mississippi home- o zners with private wells will have an opportunity next month to learn how to, . improve the functional- ity. of their drinking water sources. The Mississippi Well Own- er Network, a program of the Mississippi State University Extension Service, will hold a workshop at the Extension Office in Greene County on Tuesday, May 8, at 2 p.m. .Private well screenings for b&cteria are offered through the program. Well owners can pick up sample bottles and collection instructions April 30 to May 4 and May 7-8 at the Extension office on 414 Oak Street in Leakes- ville. Each sample analysis costs $25. A water screening is not required to attend the vcorkshop, nor is atten- dance required to have wa- tee1', ,screened. Those who are planning to attend can bring their water samples to the ,;v rkshop. For best results, use the sample bottles pro- vided by the MSU Extension eh :unty office. Screening results will be mailed to each well owner, along with a publication ex- plaining how to interpret the results. Participants will receive free MSU Extension publications with informa- tion on private wells and sep- ticsystems. 'Preregister for the work- shop at http'l/gcd.msstate. corn/register or by calling 662-325-1788. is good fer 12 hours, some fer 24 and some even far 48 hours. I reckon the 48 hour kind would be great fer folks what don't like to take baths reglar. Toothpaste choices will really have you scratchin' your head tryin' to decide what to buy-- lots of brands, lots of flavors, some to whiten your teeth, some to prevent cavities. Well, I been tellin' the Ole Man that's part of the rea- son it takes so long to shop now --jest having to make all them choices. I don't think he had a clue what I wuz talkin' bout, but now he's done found out. He got his chance to be bumfuzzle, too. He has this ole pickin' up truck what he done bought fer hisself second hand lots of years back. I don't think he's changed the oil in that truck only maybe onect or twice. He got it in his mind it wuz time fer an- other oil change, so he took hisself to Walmart to get oil and come back home empty handed! He say it wuz jest too many choices on the oil, and he wuz kind of wantin' to get some of that new syn- thetic oil; and it wuz lots of choices on that kind, too. I told him that truck wuz so old it would bout be happy with the old kind of oil. The Ole Man up and say, "Well, I hear tell with the new syn- thetic oil, you don't have to change the oil so often." I figure-if the Ole Man ever get his mind made up and unbumfuzzled enuff to make a choice on what kind of oil to get, that old truck is fixin' to get its last oil change. I speck if the truck has gone 10 years-on one or two of oil changes with reglar oil, then this new synthetic oil change is prob- able goin' to outlast the life- times of the truck and me and the Ole Man, too.

Angela Cockerham Joni Wilkinson ENJOYING THEIR HUNTING TIME TOGETHER -- Randy Whetstone of Woodville, right, and his son, Hayden, still enjoy having great father-son moments while hunting. The pair ex- perienced a very unique turkey hunt on Saturday morning, April 28, when they "doubled up" which means they both harvested turkeys at the same moment. "Doubling up" is somewhat unusual, but it does happen. What makes theirs different from most is that when the two turkeys got into range, Randy Whetstone shot his with his Matthews Tiax bow and son, Hayden, shot his with a 3.5 inch magnum shotgun. The elder's tur- key had a 9.5 inch beard and 1 inch spurs, while the younger Whetstone's turkey was a tad larger with a 10.5 inch beard and 1.25 inch spurs. Ran- dy Whetstone said, "We heard him gobbling on the roost. When we saw him coming, there was a second one, too. We got them both." -- Submitted Photo !iii!i!i!!i;i!i~i!~i~i:i!i~i~:~i~iii~i:i~iiiii:} ::::i:~:::: i:i!iii!i ii! i!i!i!:!i!iiiii!i;i:ili::::iiii:i::iiiiiiiiii!i!!ii:i A NICE SUNNY SPOT -- This alli- gator has'fled the flooded western portions of Wilkinson County to get away from backwater created by the Mississippi River and has taken up residence on some dry ground along Percy's Creek.
