Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Book No. 3 Almost Ready, by Mary A. Berger

Book No. 3 Almost Ready

I know, I know, it's been a while since you've heard from me. But hey, I've been out doing good deeds. You see, Clare and I are trying to figure out how to get into this blasted online dating site in our pursuit of an online bad boy. Trouble is, neither of us knows much about computers. I think we put the "duh" in "dummies." At any rate, you can read all about our, um, comical experiences in "The Message," Book Number 3, coming out soon. In it, my creator, Mary Berger, explains how I got involved in this online scam mess in the first place.

Would you believe, ever since I penned a letter to the editor of our local newspaper, several women's clubs have called and want moi to talk to their groups. All because of that letter. Clare (actually I could refer to her as "my secretary" but she'd probably blow a gasket if she heard me say that.) Anyway, Clare's been manning the phone for me. OMG! By the time I get to my aerobics class, golf lesson, etc., and try to figure out how to get to that online dating site . . . well, there's not much time left.

So I held one of these speaking get-togethers here at home with some of my friends. And you wouldn't believe the oddball thing that happened afterward. It's all in the new book. You'll have to check it out for yourself because it gives me the weebers just to think about it.

Besides all this extracurricular activity, I always make time to talk to my main squeeze, Jed. He should be back home soon from all his legal work up in Ohio. I really miss that man—and all his, ahem, "qualities."

Gotta run. Clare says hey. She had a hot blind date with a stock car driver and had to head down to the Pickens Race Track. But before I go, there is one other item: My creator, Mary Berger, tells me one of her humor articles, "Die-Hard Eager Beaver," is coming out in the Publishing Syndicate book series, Not Your Mother's Book . . . On Being a Woman, due out nationwide on October 9. Check out their website at www.PublishingSyndicate.com to see what they're all about.

Have one good laugh today.
