I hope you have had a great week. Have you completed those summertime projects yet? Famous last words often are, "This summer, I’m going to take care of that." or "This summer, we’re going to see them." You know what I mean! We all seem to have a way of letting things get in the way. Once that task is completed, man, what a relief!
My attic needs cleaning out, as well as a storage building, but I have a legitimate excuse; it’s been too hot. I suppose the fall will be a better time for that sort of cleaning. My daughter Sherri Ann, is having a yard sale this weekend, maybe I can join her with a few things.
My other grandson, Chase Kidd, has had another somewhat serious injury. He plays such aggressive sports he’s been to the emergency room a few times. He was in Atlanta playing baseball about two weeks ago and rolled his ankle. It swelled up like a tennis ball. Come to find out, he has two torn ligaments.
There will be no football this season for him, but he says basketball later is still most likely. I love it when they all stay busy. It helps to keep me busy, too.
Speaking of the Kidd’s, I had lunch with Miss Linda and Mr. Wayne and all the Kidd family this past Sunday. She is a remarkable cook. It is so nice to be able to continue family traditions.

In closing, I’ll be glad when early voting is over for many reasons, however it has been fun visiting with so many people coming and going and talking to the various folks working for the candidates in the tents.
I’ve been working for a candidate as well. She and I have been friends for a long time. She has really done a good job for the people in our district.
Thanks to Mr. Jimmy Vandergrift for supplying our nice tents and wonderful location.
The world in which we presently live, is in such a bad shape, that many, many prayers are needed.
God bless America.
