For some odd reason I’m not sleeping. So at 4 a.m. I’m at the old typewriter trying to see what has been going on in our community.
We’ve had some rain, sunny days and I might add some hot days. Gardens are being planted, tomatoes are being set out, as well as other good eats.
Visiting last week with Sue and James Fuller were Dustin and Maranda Connally and girls Addison and Bayleigh, June Wyatt, Jeff and Corrie Fuller, Sean, Brett and Luke and Olivia and she is becoming quite the cook. She made delicious potato soup and granny Sue said it really was good. Also there were Tony and Marsha Fuller. The other day when Peggy and George were there she made the banana pudding instead of Corrie, anyway it was good too. James is feeling better some days and not as well other days. Hopefully he can soon feel much better.
While I was in the local hospital someone brought in a paper from Morgantown. I noticed they had corespondents and I enjoyed reading them. I noticed two of the ladies mentioned “Hazel” and no last name. I was wondering if it was 2 different ones or the same lady. At least there are still Hazels out there.
Our buddy from Florida Myron Gower called one day this past week. He grows a garden and said he would have ripe tomatoes within the next week, sounds good fresh home grown tomatoes. The early ones we get are a good substitute, but just do not have that home grown goodness.
Marvine Borders visited this week with daughter Fredia and mark Pitchford in Paris, Illinois.
Visiting with cousin Lasley Johnson this past week were Dawson Smith, Ruth Costellow of Adairville and David Williams of Florida. He, like me, enjoys his company.
Imagine Martine Brown’s surprise one day last week with a knock at the door, it is Milda Ann Foster, used to be formerly of Russellville now living in Mississippi. She was here to visit family and had not seen Martine in a long time, so she did enjoy her visit.
A wedding, huh, oh yes. Kimber Johnson became the bride of Kevin O’Dell in a ceremony in Gulf Shores, Florida on Saturday, May 5. We wish the couple much happiness. Some known attending the ceremony were her parents Danny and Sandy Johnson, her twin brother Derek Johnson, Barbara Wilhelm and daughter Michelle of Dothan, Alabama. Others were in attendance also. I kept telling them I couldn’t go, stay here, but you know what, they didn’t pay me any attention.
Tuesday was a good day, I had been in so long. I enjoyed the day out with Dr. Lynwood Montell and Mitchell Bray of Bowling Green. We were on roads I’d never been before. We were on two dead end roads, one was called Graveltown and I bet I have the name wrong. We stopped on the road as we meet someone, he said his name was Boyd Penrod and I understood him to say it used to be known as Howardsville. Is that right? Both dead ends had gates locked across the roads. I really did enjoy and of course we had to stop and eat, we chose Webb’s. We usually do this once a month and we began in the 1980s. I asked Lynwood the other day, wonder how many hundreds of miles we had driven. There is no way to guess, we really enjoy doing this. So will expect the guys back in about a month.
Part of the therapy team I’ve had is a sweet, young lady named Lisa Hardison and guess what, she is the daughter-in-law of Brenda Johns McCall. If you remember she isthe daughter of the late Warren and Fay Johns. Brenda has recently been in the hospital. Hope she is feeling lots better now.
Stanley and Elaine attended a concert in Nashville Saturday compliments of his daughter Kerri. They both said they really enjoyed it, something about the Beetles.
Those that have been in here this week were Claudia hart, Ada Dorris, Lannie Jernigan and Stacey Jernigan, all with good eats, I sure appreciate. I am finally getting some strength back, if I could just sleep. Do you know a sure fire cure? This keeps me pooped out. Saturday my right foot was swollen big enough for an extra foot, luckily didn’t hurt, looked awful though.
I had hopped to get to church this morning, maybe next week will try again for the next time. I don’t think I’ve ever missed this much church before in my entire life.
Before church this morning, Steve Timberlake came in and brought me lettuce and onions, so of course I ate some for lunch, very good.
As it is May already our picnic is the first Friday in June, so please already, mark your calendar and please, please come. We have lots of fun and lots of good eats. I think you would enjoy it, at least try it, okay?
Talked to Sue awhile ago and she said James was feeling better so they went to church this morning.
Until next time, see ya!
