the story of the almost Mayflower table

Last year our high school got a new marquee sign for the entrance.

It’s beautiful.

It’s electronic and fancy and blinks all the time and has graphics and dancing birds and the time and the temperature….

In the south we have a saying that we use when don’t really know what to say.

When we are loss for words with a situation that almost needs no comment.

It’s the perfect saying, really.  You can say so much with just that one little phrase.
