Howdy y’all. How has the day been in your little corner of the world and how is the world treating you? Been a damp, dark, dreary day here. Mostly cloudy and lots of rain with a bit of sunshine now and then. Not as hot and humid as it has been.
Hope all who have gardens out are enjoying some early vegetables and hope you have a bumper crop. I really wanted to put about four tomato plants in pots near the back porch but no can do. To tell the truth, neither Red nor I are doing so well. He can’t see and I’m just plain sick.
Still getting cards, letters, calls and so many who are praying for us. Want to thank each and every one and know we love each and every one, be it family, friends or complete strangers.
The only ones of my family that I’ve heard from besides the ones around here are Jeanie and Christy. Red has heard from Charles, his sister Mae, niece Carlita, niece Lena, nephew Gary and today his niece Frances.
One of the ladies from hospice came by today and washed my hair and Georgia will be by later to set it for me. Speaking of hospice, one could never meet a more caring, loving and sweet group of ladies. They seem to know what I need before I do and it’s here posthaste.
They have a secret which I’ve discovered, they are angels in disguise, because no one else could be so caring, loving and giving. I just love the lot of them.
Richard, Georgia, their daughter Debbie and husband Billy Resor came by with our country supper, that’s dinner for city folks. They ate with us which was really enjoyable. Always nice to have company at the table.
Georgia cleared the dishes and is now sweeping kitchen floor. They even brought along some pies, two of my favorites, strawberry and banana cream. She also brought butterscotch. One thing for certain, we both are still eating fairly well, at least most of the time.
Talked to Bill and Redia both today. Bill was at work and Redia was going to be home, one of her brothers and his son from Columbus were coming for the day.
Catharine just called she’s on her way so I’ve got to finish this.
Until next time, have a great week, have fun with family and friends this Memorial Day, smile and be happy. Love and prayers.
