The weatherman has had the rain, weather reports and lately they have hit it right. Of course, I think John Morehead hits it good. I love to hear him talk.

Happy Birthday to La Nita Harris up in Meadows of Dan way. I hope you have a blessed day.

At church on Sunday, it was a soup lunch put on by the teens. There were several kinds of soup, grilled cheese sandwiches and dessert. It was delicious.

I sure did enjoy going to Mrs. Geneva Foley’s home when Mike Hall and Duane George went to sing. Several people came, and we just about had church. Sue made potato soup, and even gave me a bowl of it. She’s a pro with that potato soup. It was a good night.

Please keep my neighbors and their new son in your prayers.

The Simmon family was up for the weekend, and I went shopping with the money that Mary gave me for the food ministry.

It made my day when Robert Gasperson called. I always love to hear from the Gasperson family. They are so nice.

When I went into Elizabeth’s Pizza for my weekly visit, I met the nicest lady and she came and sat down with me and we had some good conversation. She said usually she gets food to go. She reads “The Enterprise,” and her name is Melissa Spencer. Hope I see her again soon.

I enjoyed “The Henry County Enterprise.” It’s on the newsstands now. It will now be published monthly. That is nice.

Miss Vera Plasters (103 years old) was looking sweet and was finishing her lunch when I went by. She ate good at lunch. I just love seeing her.
