Here in Almyra all is well. I see and hear tractors moving everywhere; that’s a good thing, as is the beautiful sunshine; thank you Lord.
The NCAA basketball game between the University of Memphis and Virginia left us with a sigh when Virginia won the game 78 to 60. Coach Josh Pastner’s interview on TV was kind of sad. I miss Mrs. Louise Vandergrift as she always used to call me and say, "Did you see this or that play?" She loved basketball. Dear friends are gone but never forgotten.
Speaking of games, as I mentioned last week, I’ve got grandchildren playing everywhere. Bill and I drove to Dyersburg Sunday morning to see my little Addie play in a softball tournament. Unfortunately, they lost that one. But, those little girls played four consecutive games the day before. I personally don’t see playing seven-and eight-year-olds that hard at one time. Sunday morning, their spirits were shot and I can see why they had no energy. Oh well, they will be ready for the next one. Addie did, however, make a homerun. Way to go, girl! She was so tired, she didn’t even want a piece of Dove chocolate.

In closing, the chill will soon be gone, I hope. There is so much transitioning to do with shoes and clothes this time of year. I suppose we can take this week to do that. Mr. Bill has already helped me get stuff from the attic, as I am scared to climb up and down those stairs while there alone.
Have a great week.
