The last week had such beautiful and nice breezy days and comfortable temperatures, and then Sunday afternoon everything changed. Man, that storm was somewhat frightening. The highs reaching 100 degrees makes us realize summer is not over yet, even though schools have begun. We needed the rain desperately! I thought my dog was going to go crazy as the thunder continued.
Country Creations will be having a grand opening soon. They are in the process of re-doing the entire interior, which has taken a little longer than planned. However, he is still taking orders for various items he is making, such as mantles, bookcases, rocking chairs or anything you may want. He is a very talented gentleman. There are also items inside the store that were from the original store and some antiques. Almyra is coming back to life! It is so nice to look across the street and see the beautiful plants and accessories.

The Humes High School 50th reunion is only four weeks away. We have only one more committee meeting. It's all finished and ready to go. I can't wait. Mrs. Patsy Payne,here in Brighton, is making me a" poodle skirt" and I've already received my saddle oxford shoes from Amazon. Thanks to Laura Thornton for showing me how to use Amazon again. Of course, this is for the casual night, then comes the most important night. I haven't decided what I'll wear to that yet. I better get busy! I can't wait to see all of our young friends, and hear the many stories. I bet I've got the most grandchildren, we'll see! My friends, Mr.Bud and Debbie Neal, just returned from a week at Dollywood. Listening to them over Sunday dinner was hilarious. But the best thing is "they got away" and made many funny and happy memories. It sure helps to change our focus to entertaining thoughts now and then. Have a great week!
