School’s out, school’s out! Teachers, let the kids out. When I was growing up it was, “teachers let the monkeys out.” Oh well, time sure changes everything, doesn’t it? If we are around long enough, it’s hard to believe we still live in the same country. Maybe by 2016 some things might begin to go in a different direction. My direction over the past weekend was Interstate l – 40 to Camden and Centerville and back. My little Addie had softball tournaments in Camden on Saturday. Sherri, Addie and I went up Friday night and stayed at the Best Western because their first game began early. We even got to go swimming Friday afternoon. On Saturday, the girls won three out of four games before the weather got bad. We were through but the 10-year-olds had to play after the rain and it was almost midnight getting through. Addie’s team, the Lady Cobras, really had the spirit, thanks to the coaches and others who worked with them. Saturday afternoon, we parted as I drove on up to Centerville to spend the night with granddaughter Whitney Barber Carroll, as Sunday was her 21st birthday; it was her request that Mimi come for her birthday. We had a great time and I ended up staying through Monday, Memorial Day. Memorial Day is such a very special day. Every American should sing the praises of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us. All the military flags flying everywhere were so meaningful and made quite an impression. I pray that it is never allowed to be stopped.
Sharon Presbyterian Church
Worship is at 9 a.m. Rev. Charles Todd is the minister. We welcome all members, visitors and friends. We again welcome Mr. David Jones from Salem ARP Church. Happy birthday to Joyce Byrd, whose birthday was on the 25th. I hope it was a great one! Sorry, I did not get Salem’s bulletin this week. I must share what my grandsons did last week after graduation. Hayden, Matt, Luke Scott and their friends took the family boat to their lake house on the Tennessee River and spent the week. A whole week with eight boys! I can’t imagine how much fun these kids had. I can hardly wait to hear the stories. Their mom, dad and girlfriends came up Saturday and all stayed through Monday. Memories are what life is made of and I’m sure that week will be a memory for a lifetime. Hope your good ones will be too. Have a great week everyone!
