Thank God the sun is shining each morning now; it’s a great way to start the day. The little storms in the evenings are just part of life, as well as all of the pollen still flying everywhere. I’ve been bringing my dog under the carport in the evenings to keep her calm from the lightning and the thunder. I suppose the rain is good for the corn crops; in Almyra, the McDaniels have beautiful crops of corn.
This past week was very busy. The WIN club, a group of ladies (widows), met Monday evening, as we meet monthly at Atoka Baptist Church; all widows are invited. Following that, the 'We The People' group met Tuesday evening. State Representative Debra Moody was our guest speaker.
The Humes committee meeting was held in my home on Saturday; as we are drawing close to time for the 50th high school reunion.
Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to visit with my granddaughter, Elizabeth, and my little great-grandson, Jax, as they were coming through Tipton County.
My daughter, Terri Barber, from Centerville, and the entire family of Barbers are traveling to Gatlinburg this week for their annual vacation. Gatlinburg is a very special place for me, Charlie and I visited often, and it was my father’s home.

In closing, my other daughter, Sherri Kidd, and her children are with the youth of our church this week at the West Kentucky Youth Camp. I’m sure she’s ready to slow down some, as Chase, Addie and she just returned from a week in Fayetteville, Ark. Chase played baseball for the Memphis Tiger and Sherri sent me a video of him pitching; way to go Chase!
Thanks to Mrs. Debbie Neal for such a wonderful lunch Sunday, as this has become a weekly event for Mr. Bill and me. Debbie’s a terrific cook!
Hope you all have a great week.
