I hope you all had a happy and bright weekend. I was sorry I had to miss Dunlap’s Spring Fest; I’m sure it was a fun-filled day.
Thank goodness my schedule has finally slowed down some. I’ve been out of town for the past two weekends for the shower and wedding of my granddaughter, Elizabeth Barber Peebles. She and her husband honeymooned on the Tennessee River at my son’s lake house. The wedding took place in Murfreesboro on the farm called Southern Promise, belonging to her grandfather, Jerry Scott.
I know they were happy to see the last car pull out; I remember well from Whitney’s wedding at my home last year. However, it was nice to see so many friends I had not seen in some time. Mr. Jerry Barber Sr., her grandfather on her father’s side, an ordained minister, married them. May God bless them and guide them throughout their marriage.
Now on to our Tipton County graduates. The time is here. It seems I have a grandchild graduating every year. This year my dear Luke Scott, a senior at Brighton High School, will be graduating on May 15 at 7:30 p.m. He will be headed to Middle Tennessee State, where he and his mom have already secured an apartment. He plans to become an aviation mechanic. He is a natural in all types of mechanics, as was my father, Mr. Floyd Houlihan.
Congratulations Luke Scott and to all graduates! May God Bless your every endeavor.
