HOOVER’S WIT.Sometimes at a very early age, children say some astounding thing that drive home a point. Dr. Marion Logsdon of Radcliff told me this awhile back concerning his grandson. He said his wife and grandson were out at the lake one day. His grandson said to his wife, “Grandma, do you believe I can walk on the water?”Alma said, “No, son, only one person ever walked on the water.”His grandson looked up at her and seemingly afraid he would hurt her feelings said softly, “Grandma, actually there were two.”(meaning Peter).
Just a friendly note about Hoover’s Wit. Some of these stories I put in my column were written back in 1986 by Col. Frances Hoover.
