Local History Puzzles Ol' Scowlly
Anthony Woodside wrote a nice article in the Mooresville-Decatur Times (Wednesday, June 27, 2018, pages A1-A2) about the library's local history quizzes on Facebook and Twitter. I bet Scowl-Face hurt his back taking all those bows.
Besides hogging the front page of our local newspaper, Scowl-Face has blogged (of course he has) about using social media (particularly Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube) to promote local history.
For moi, local history is largely a matter of remembering where and from whom I can get extra free meals and how often those meals will be served. My library's people patrons, however, seem to really enjoy reminiscing about the way things used to be. They call that nostalgia. As long as it doesn't interfere with my din-dins, I'm okay with that.
Boss Lady will probably need to hire more staff just to carry around Scowl-Face's swelled head. Honestly, how he gets that thing through doorways is a minor miracle.
