Mountain Top Party Line

Pictured my cousin Kenneth Wood walking down the Mountain View Road up on the mountain. Ken and his wife were visiting us from California. Both have gone on to be with the Lord. Lots of good memories linger.

Summer has arrived with all the high temperatures. At these times I’m thankful to have some shades in the morning and late evening, and I love sitting on the porch.

I enjoyed the birthday party for Colby next door. They put me in a cool tent, gave me a cold drink, a hamburger, a slice of birthday cake and treated me so nice. Thank you.

It was nice of Danny Hundley to bring Lerida and I some birthday cake and some delicious blueberries. Hope Danny can be back to work soon. It’s good to have Walter helping also. He keeps everything going along smoothly. Thank you! For a GOOD JOB!

Nice to hear from Beverly Woody. She is like the rest of us and staying inside. Blue the dog doesn’t want to go outside. I don’t blame Blue. It’s nice in the cool!

I don’t think the hummingbirds know what to do. I had three for a while, then I didn’t have any for three days. Then, three appeared again. Still got my mockingbird singing the song everywhere in the woods. I love hearing it.

I always enjoy working at the Church Food Ministry, meeting new people, and taking some boxes to people that can’t get out, and some that are home due to the virus. Love the company of Sam the dog.

Blueberry Hill is mowed and looks so nice. people are picking blueberries I saw a lot of them making pictures when I got my mail on Saturday.

I’m enjoying all the good books that Edie gave me and I have a good supply now! Mostly I read at night. I can always find something to do during the day. Never a dull moment.

Mary Ann called from D.C. on Thursday and I got news from there. Then, I tell her all the news here in Patrick. It’s always so good to talk with her.

Well to all The Enterprise staff. Miss seeing you.


Food for thought- Lord when we listen to the news, we don’t know what to think. We are shocked, confused and even terrified by things going on around us in this world. Teach us to discern as you do and help us see how we can continue to change things for the better.
