It's so windy! How windy is it? A chicken just laid the same egg three times! Ha!
It is a blustery Tuesday morning and temperatures are dropping by the minute. When it rains I was planning on going to Jay Weir's memorial service yesterday, but my aunt, Helen Lynn Harrington Goheen, passed away Friday morning and James and I ended up in Kentucky for her service.
Poor Granny, one bad thing about living past 100 is you start losing children, three are gone, three are left. It is so sad. Aunt Helen had a nice service and I saw so many people I thought I'd never see again. That was nice. She would have been 75 Wednesday and was my mother's little sister.
If anyone would like to send Granny a card, her address is Mrs. Paul Harrington, P.O. Box 245, Calvert City, KY 42029. Helen lived here until she was about 11, when they moved to Kentucky to build the drive-in. Tell her you read Lainey's column!
Last Wednesday, James and I picked up new glasses and ate lunch in Memphis. Thursday, I went to the soil conservation winter meeting in Jackson with Danielle Schlauch. We have fun riding together and had a good meeting talking with all the good folks and watching the presentation. Afterwards, we had a good lunch and then I visited my dad, Kenneth Weir, at Regency, on the way home. It was a nice day.
My sincere sympathy goes to the families of both Ruby Molder and Margie Whitley. Those two were fine women and their families are in my prayers. I knew both of them for what seemed like forever.
Ken Bringle is out of the hospital, but remains in our prayers, as well as Carole Hughey, Dale Laxton, James Ingram, Pat Armstrong, Joyce Whaley, Bonnie Holbrook, Keith McCalla, Florence Roberts, Lillie Glass and so many others, along with all the servicemen and women.

This week's Farmer's Almanac quote: "Cats have 32 muscles in each ear." Who knew?
Stay warm. It is a cold week ahead, then will be warmer for the weekend. I want some snow.
Until next week.
