“Sunday morning at CQC Network! Welcome to News-Notes,” announced Bud. “Any locals, Mindy?”
“Sure,” said charming Mindy. “Before the mundane and anti-climatic world news, we have a local celebration going on. It started eighty-seven years ago today, January 24, 1934.
Applause began in the audience some of whom were in the know regarding persons of distinction in their county.
Mindy continues, “We have our Honoree from that day. There she is. Stand up, Oneta Hayes, we want a good look. Not that anyone would overlook you with your face placarded all around the town.”
Oneta bowed humbly as the Happy Birthdays rolled.

About oneta hayes
Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
Happy Birthday! I hope you do have placards all over town — you deserve them. Lacking that, I hope you’re deluged with cake and cards!
Placards and applause! Hey, Hey. Thanks.
Happy birthday, Oneta
