Hi everyone. The possibility exists; the sunshine behind the clouds will become a solid visibility soon, I do believe.

While at the baseball tournament of my grandson, Zack Kidd, Saturday evening, Mr. Bill and I were able to view the quarter moon and a few stars. Zack’s team is better known as the Mudcats. They did finish the tournament as the champions. It was a very nice evening.

Speaking of nice, I was in Dyersburg all day Saturday before going to the game that evening. My dear friends and church family at Phillip Street Church of Christ in Dyersburg, where I lived some 30 years ago, celebrated Mr. and Mrs. Bobby and Janice Diggs 60th wedding anniversary. I don’t know if you would call it a shower or a party, but it was the most incredible and beautifully-displayed event I’ve ever been to. Janice and Bobby were also my neighbors during those years, as well as several other couples who attended. All the grown children and grandchildren were there. It just made a very inspiring day for me. Sisters and brothers in Christ are family members forever.

In closing, on Monday of this week, I took Mr. Bill and his classmate Mr. Glenn Briggs, visiting from Florida, to their first Monday’s monthly luncheon. They are graduates of Frayser’s class of 1955 and ‘56, in Memphis, of course. Upon arrival, I immediately discovered that other ladies were not present. My first thought was to go shopping, but I was hungry, so I stayed seated with six men for lunch. Boy was that an experience! Story after story, I learned a lot of information I wish I had known years ago.

A lady sitting nearby heard a name mentioned and came over and started talking to us. She was a graduate of Tech High School, her husband graduated from Whitehaven and of course I represented Humes, four of the well-known high schools in Memphis where I grew up. Of course, I had Elvis and John Bramlett to talk about. They all remembered a Bramlett story; praise the Lord that he came into John’s life. Again, memories are what life is made of; they usually bring forth a smile.

Hope you all have a great week!
