It’s not like we need anymore turmoil in our lives, but this hurricane business will make a person living on the coast or us who have family and friends living down there, stand up and take notice. Our prayers are with those recovering and rebuilding from the storms.
Greg Bloom of Grenada visited Tim Sullivan Saturday. He got away before I could ask him about my rose bush and what I need to do to keep it going at least another year or two. Maybe next time, Greg.
Sadie Harper finished her leg therapy for the 4th session and she has 2 more to go. Sadie will go Thursday for a nerve block in her leg.
Martha Box says it’s still too hot to walk unless she does it at 4 a.m. One of the stores where she was using their parking lot to walk, then getting her shopping done afterwards, is a no-no because you must walk in one line behind a fence wearing a mask! So she quit spending that money every day she walked! Might get fat from fewer walks, but hey, less fat food to cook, so thank you. Martha said she was praying for all the right votes to put an end to all this pandemic episode.
I called my down the road neighbor, Jessie Williams and her sweet daughter, Julia Kerr answered the phone. It was good to hear from Julia. She said her mother’s doctor appointment went well. Julia is a nurse and has worked at the hospital in Grenada for several years.
Rowland Hartley had a birthday party Saturday at their home in Tillatoba. Knowing Rowland, he had a great time!
David and I got up early Saturday morning and headed south to Grenada and visited our daughter, Donna Garripoli. While there we got to see our great grand son, Bradley Holliday, and a playmate of his, my great-great-great nephew, Lane Hart McLendon and his mother, Treasure. We stopped on the way back to Tillatoba and picked up pizza for lunch. Sunday, our daughter, Brandy Rounsaville stopped by after church and ate lunch with us. David had cooked a big pot of beans in the crock-pot all night and I made slaw and buttermilk cornbread and topped it off with peach tea.

Thought for the day.... Never in the history of fashion has so little material been raised so high to reveal so much that needs to be covered so badly.
