Jack McCall: Count your blessings
When I was a boy in the 1950s, the heat of summer nights in the Brim Hollow was only broken by gentle breezes from beneath lazy shade trees and a small oscillating fan, which attempted to stir the night air. Later, back at the home place, my family installed window fans, which did little more than move the sticky night air. They did, however, bring some relief. Today, most of us live and work in climate-controlled environments. And today we think nothing of lights at the flip of a switch, microwaves, vacuum cleaners, electric mixers, televisions and a myriad of electrical gadgets, which make our lives easier. Count your blessings.
