Oldest Reader


Mr. Jay Morris has to be our oldest reader! He was at the Maury County Library Saturday (which, by the way, was a fantastic event). He and daughter Bettie, who has not aged a bit since our cheerleader days, came to get books signed. Mr. Jay said, “Your daddy and I went to school together. We were born the same year – 08.” I had to think about that. 1908! Yes, that was when my dad was born. He died about 15 years ago, so it had not occurred to me that he’d be 103 if he were living.  Here was Mr. Jay, spry and full of himself at 103! He has to be the oldest reader of our book. He added, “You know we’re cousins!”  Proud to be related, Mr. Jay!
