Likes Our ‘Old Timer’

Dear editor:

I truly enjoyed your oldtimer columnist Mac’s piece in last week’s paper.

I believe his thoughts not just to be of a personal nature, but ones shared by many. As he wandered from topic to topic, each one had a ring of truth.

The family story Mac shared at the end had enough comedy in it to counteract the pain we could imagine his “grandpap” was feeling when that cigarette lighter was pressed into his nose.

Nicely done!
