Overheard & Shout Outs: Sept. 28, 2018


Are there tid-bits of conversations you’ve heard while standing in line at the grocery store, serving a table, or walking down the sidewalk that make you smile, cringe or laugh out loud?

“It’s always bigger in my head than in reality!”

“Yeah, that’s an old folks acronym.”

“He’s the guy with magician hair.”

“They only cheese shame you in Wisconsin.”

“You can’t have three halves.”

“What Spy Kids microwave did you get that out of?!”

“Look out! Land sharks at tropical JJ’s!”



Is there someone or something that deserves a pat on the back or a slap on the wrist?

Shout-out to Payton Pluff, Bria Caldecott and the rest of Gibraltar’s varsity volleyball team for organizing the Rally for Hope to raise money for the Ellie Helm Foundation. Thanks for thinking beyond yourselves and helping the community!

Shout-out to the arrival of autumn. Farewell, cool summer. Welcome, cooler autumn.

Slap on the wrist to drivers who maintain a speed of 45 mph on Highway 57 despite any of the posted speed limit signs.

Thanks to moms and grandmas everywhere who know how to fix necklaces and mend torn clothes.
