Good Morning! I will attempt to get back to writing a column, but I don't know much of what is going on in my church and community.

I could count on my fingers the number of times I have been out of the house since Christmas.

I had eye surgery the end of December and that is all healed up and doing great.

About the middle of January (during the snow storm) I fell and broke my right ankle in two places. I had four of the very best "good Samaritans" rescue me and get me to the emergency room. It wasn't an easy job for the good Samaritans as they even had to shovel snow on my carport.

Since then I have been in a very heavy boot that comes to my knee. At least, it hasn't needed surgery. I have three more weeks of wearing this and then back to the orthopedic doctor. Enough about me.

One of my nearest neighbors, Freddie Borders will be buried on Thursday. Freddie had been so sick for such a long time. He was in the hospital for six months. Our prayers go out to his wife, his children, grandchildren, mother, and sisters.

Our VBS at Elk Lick as been set to take place the week of July 10th. Big plans are coming up for this.

I talked with Virginia Hart this morning. She continues to be a shut-in due to breaking her hip last fall. She and Jerry were having brunch when I called.

One of my nieces from Nashville was here yesterday to visit with me. Kathy brought some good food with her for Danny, Shirley and me to share. I certainly enjoyed her visit.

A couple of weeks ago, my niece Vicki and her husband George came and spent the day with me. They also brought food.

Glenda Williams continues to be a very sick lady. I think she is at home now but certainly needs our prayers.

My two granddaughters spent the weekend with me. We always have a good time when they come.
