It surely was nice to have some time of sunshine after all the rainy days. Sometimes sunshine is like a dose of medicine.
The movie “Heaven is For Real” was good. I had read the book and it was good also. Sages had the movie and dinner. It was so delicious and I got to eat some of Kathy Trent’s hot dogs again. She is famous for her chili and hot dogs. Boy! The desserts were delicious.
It was good to have some down time with the Martin clan at Elizabeth’s Pizza.
The Strawberry Festival really was nice, with lots of vendors, delicious food and music. I enjoyed walking through the vendors and then the music inside of Honduras Coffee Shop. I also enjoyed breakfast there. It’s always good to see owner Leon Puckett. My mother always enjoyed Leon and his family.
It was good to hear from my friend Ann. We enjoyed a good conversation by telephone.
Kathy Solomon surprised me with some Jack-in-Pulpit plants. I never had them before, but had seen them other places. My wild bleeding heart from Kathy is so pretty.
The Food Ministry has been blessed lately with a generous donation from some caring folk. Thank you so much. It will be used wisely.
I was so sorry to hear of the death of Vergie Cassidy. I worked with Vergie for years at Bassett-Walker. My love and heartfelt sympathy to the family.
It surely was good to see Melva Ellis again when sister Karen brought her by the Food Ministry to see us. She looked great and is feeling much better. Please put her on your prayer list. Melva hopes to be able to come back to church and the food ministry.
I was so sorry to hear of the death of Calep Boyd (who we called Prince at Meadows of Dan High School). My love and heartfelt sympathy to the family.
Mary Ann called from D.C. the other day. She is a big baseball fan and went to a game that had about 38,000 fans there. It took her two hours to get home after the game, and she also got in the rush hour traffic.
Household hint: Cool your linens. If a humid bedroom keeps you up at night, sprinkle baby powder between your bed sheets. It will absorb moisture and keep you comfortable.
