The Beach Music Festival “Hot Fun in the Summertime” had beautiful weather all through the three-day period. Attendance was around 6,000 people. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if half that many attended a church service?
I really enjoyed the ice cream social on Sunday at Providence United Methodist Church, and surely ate a lot of calories in that big sundae. Also, the music was so good and I was so happy to see Charlie playing. I really enjoyed working with him at Bassett-Walker.
Neighbors Larry and Teresa Martin have been busy these days getting up their hay.
Thanks to Charles and Gloria Biggs for their hospitality on Sunday.
Folks are telling me that they are beginning to see more hummingbirds lately. When the babies hatch there will be more. I surely hope so.
Love and prayers go out to one of my dearest friends over the years, Bonnie Hall. Over the years we worked together at Poor Farmer’s Farm and shared many times by telephone. Please put Bonnie on your prayer list.
It surely was nice to see Trooper Noah Knight at Elizabeth’s Pizza the other day. I used to see him a lot when I worked at Greene’s.
Mary Ann (Marilyn’s cousin) came down from Washington, D.C., and had good traveling weather.
Mountain View United Methodist Church at Meadows of Dan reports that they had a great revival with good preaching and beautiful music.
We had a lot of fun at the Sages meeting on Thursday playing a trivia game after devotions. Sages is a group of senior citizens at the Patrick Springs Pentecostal Holiness Church. Come and join us.
Heartfelt sympathy goes to the family of Tracey Quentin “Beefy” Penn, a well-known Patrick County resident. Keep the family in your prayers.
Cooking hint: For sloppy Joes use extra lean ground beef or ground turkey breast. You can spice up the flavor by combining chopped fresh tomatoes or 1/2 cup chunky salsa.
