Three or four weeks is a long time to be without a computer. Finally, Expertex found the problem. It was such a blessing to be able to communicate again, since this generation doesn’t enjoy picking up the telephone. Teasing, of course, but it is for sure a different lifestyle. Speaking of enjoyment, the cool temperatures last week were amazing for July.
I was not able to write last week, as I went with Mr. Bill’s family to Hardy, Ark. They had a family reunion and a birthday party for his sister, who turned 92. She is amazing. While there, we saw some of the most beautiful scenery. They’re not mountains, but beautiful hills, springs, waterfalls and creek beds. All of my immediate family is gone now, but two sisters; however, my children, nieces, nephews and, of course, grandchildren, and a few cousins are left are my life, praise the Lord.
The committee for our 50th high school reunion met again over this past weekend and everything is coming together beautifully. It’s not long now and I can hardly wait, especially to see my girlfriend, Michelle Boren Sissom, and her husband Richard, from Atlanta. They will be staying at the same hotel, so I know we will have a ball!

Mr. Thornton Fee’s birthday was on July the 12th and Courtney’s on the 22nd. Happy birthday to you both and we pray for many more happy years. For those of you who would like to remember Ruby Fee with a card or phone call, her birthday is July 27.
In closing, my son, Mike Scott and his wife Stephanie spent their 25th wedding anniversary in Jamaica. .Happy anniversary to you both and may the Lord bless you with many more happy years. My little Luke Scott (don’t tell him I called him little) will be leaving soon for Middle Tennessee University. He will be missed greatly.
Also last week, my daughter, Sherri Kidd, and family spent the week at Gulf Shores, Ala. Zack, my grandson, was playing tournament baseball. They also had a little time for the beach. Addie loved it!
My grandson, Chase Kidd, only got to stay a short time as he had tournament baseball in Atlanta. Baseball is fun and has helped me fill a lot of grandchildren time at the fields. We all love it.
I hope you are able to stay cool and active as the warmer temperatures are finally arriving. Have a great three more weeks, you teachers and students, as school will soon be approaching. Oh! Before closing I must remind you that early voting has begun. Please affirm your freedom by using this privilege and put it on your calendar. Of course, the primary is Aug 7. I picked Mr. Bill up the first day and we got that done immediately.
