Blueberry Hill has had really sweet berries this year. I have enjoyed them a lot, and did a few 1/2 pints of jam.
I was so sorry to hear of the death of Myra Wood Swiney. She was a beautiful lady and was always smiling. My love and heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family.
When I was in the dollar store, I saw one of the Ratliff girls and she said she enjoys the Party Line a lot. She said she would get me some photos together for the column. Everyone seems to enjoy the photos.
Thanks to Sue Hall for taking me on a very nice trip to the Meadows of Dan Folk Fair. There were lots of vendors set up and I enjoyed seeing my favorite gospel group, The Hylton Family. They are still going strong for the Lord. Sue was helping in The Shoe Box tent with people from Meadows of Dan Church. A lady that was painting children’s faces was near us. The children were having a ball. Thanks again for a memorable day.
The children from The Falcon Children’s Home come to Patrick Springs Pentecostal Holiness Church to sing. It was wonderful. I always enjoy them.
Thanks to Charles and Gloria Biggs for inviting me to lunch at their home on Sunday. It’s always delicious.
I sure did enjoy Dennis Simmons and his two grand-daughters coming by to see me. The children are so sweet. Hope to see you again soon.
Just wanted to say hello to Connie and Steve Greer and to tell you how much I enjoyed my can of Amish peaches. They were perfect. I will save your jar. Thank you!
I sure did enjoy my share of Ronnie Mabe’s birthday cake on Wednesday. May you celebrate many more.
It was so good to see Danny Reynolds and Mary again. Please put Danny on your prayer list.
I enjoyed seeing The Lavender Farm while we were on the mountain. Sue said they shop was full of things.
Don’t forget Edie Lemons’ Barn Quilt Painting Class on Oct 19th, from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Patrick Springs Pentecostal Church Ministry Center.
