        Good morning all.
        I hope all had a good weekend. I can’t say I did beause I didn’t go to church either time. I didn’t feel good. Also, my sister-in-law who takes me to church has been sick all week. So we just couldn’t go. I hope we can go next time. We sure miss going. I am sure Pat preached good as always.

        Bernard is feeling a lot better. This Sunday evening he is still in Crossville Hospital. He spent a few days last week there with pneumonia, got to come home and then back again. Faye and Joey both called, told me he was eating ice chips and resting. I got to talk with him a few minutes Saturday morning and he gave me some real good news.
        I have been having some stormy weather and a lot of rain. It was hard for some to get mowing done between showers.
        Nadine and Steve spent a few days at Myrtle Beach recently.
