Last week, I read a news story about a man who swallowed a cellphone and had to have it surgically removed. I'll be the first to admit that when I see social media posts featuring eastern North Carolina barbecue or various types of ice cream, I might be drawn closer to my screen, but I have yet to lick or swallow my phone.
This week's Backward Glance photo brought a smile to my face but also left me a bit melancholy. Dr. L.A. High was our family doctor throughout my childhood and teen years up until his retirement. I recall him visiting our home on a few occasions as a house call for medical care.
This photo originally published in The Nashville Graphic on August 24, 1988. Dr. L.A. High (right) then a retired Nashville physician, was the honorary Curator for the day at the Country Doctor Museum in Bailey.
