By the way, the photo that I saved is my dad, Dewey Russell Brown painting his fence at the age of eighty one.
The caption below reads: "September Dry Spell continues which made perfect weather for painting a fence. Dewey Brown, 1601 N. Monroe, was busy Tuesday scraping old pint off his fence. The dry spell was forecast to continue through the week, which may be good news for Dewey but bad news for those who would like to see the dust settled down and the lawns watered with a good rain."
It feels like a human interest story told with kindness and interest in a hometown newspaper.
