April 15th, 2013. What can I say other that I am glad it is behind us? It has been said that there are two sure things in this world – Death and Taxes. There has just got to be a better, simpler way to handle taxes. I don’t know what the answer is, but I am hopeful that there will be reform and relief in my lifetime. Plenty of time! I AM still a spring chicken!
Progress on the Isle of Palms is apparent in the ongoing demolition of the old Red & White Grocery Store. I watched with great sadness yesterday and today as the heavy equipment tore into the building, great big jaws of metal tearing the building apart. Granted, it was dated, old and tired, and there will soon be a sparkling new building in its place. But having lived here all my life and reflecting back, I found it hard to watch. When I was growing up here, that Shopping Center was it, home to the Post Office, hardware store, Belle Turner’s hair salon and the Red and White Grocery. R.I.P.
