It's been a very interesting week. I went to my very first truck and tractor pull last Friday night in Brighton with Mr. Bill. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm sure the drivers put their all into it! There were even a couple of girls involved in this contest; one who did quite well. I understand the FFA has something to do with it. Anyway, it was fun and very family-orientated.
There is so much trouble around the world, we should all be praying constantly for America's future. Thank God here in Almyra the crops are producing wonderfully and things are reasonably quiet most of the time. It's a feeling of knowing you are blessed.
My daughter, Terri Barber, and granddaughter, Whitney Carroll, were down over the weekend. My girls and I had so much fun.
We went to the Helen Britt wholesale show at the Cook Convention Center and began getting a few Christmas items out of the way. That's comforting when you have a large family.
I also purchased a taser, which is also comforting to know you own one. My children know not to come late, unannounced. There's a great deal of yard work to do as soon as the temps cool off. I can`t wait.

In closing, our lesson Sunday at Brighton Church of Christ was so good, titled "Life is an attitude. Have a good one!" The person who sends out positive thoughts activates the world around him positively and draws back to himself positive results." Norman Vincent Peale. Go to www.behappyzone.com.
Since Miss Debbie (our chef on Sundays) also went to the wholesale show on Sunday after church, Mr. Bill, his son Paul and I had to search for another lunch location. We decided on Applebee's. However, I like Debbie's better! Have a blessed week.
