        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.

        Sunday School and church attendance were up Sunday and I’m so glad. Guess everyone had their last fling before school started Monday. Now it’s back to those A-B-C’s.
        The Sr. Citizen “Classic’s” went to see “Tennessee USA” at the Cumberland County Playhouse Friday then to Ryan’s for supper. (18) made the trip and I believe everyone enjoyed it.

        Good morning all.
        I hope all had a good weekend even if it was hot. I went to church both times. Pat preached real good as he always does. The singing was very good too. Cathy did a special. Also, Angie did a special. The choir was great.
        Sunday night we were blessed with Danny Redmon and his singers from White Oak Church and Miss Emma Lou playing for them. They were very good. We enjoyed them a lot. I hope they will come again.
