It’s been a busy week, but many things were accomplished. My large television in the den went out last week. I suppose things happen in a series. I was without a computer for four weeks and then the television played out completely; it was getting a little old anyway and I ended up having to buy a new one. Now I’m with the new generation with a flat screen. It’s okay, but I loved my old television.
My grandson, Luke Scott, and his girlfriend, Caroline Davis, came over to help me set up the programs. I appreciated that so much. They stayed for a short visit and it was so nice. They will both be going to Middle Tennessee State in a couple of weeks. He promised he will return home on some weekends.
Mr. Bill went with me to pick out this new television at Sam’s. It will still fit into my bookcase, where the other sat. Luke told me these flat screens don’t last as long as the older televisions did. I only turn it on each morning to see if we are in war yet. I do know one thing, this country is in the worst case ever. You young people and others need to get educated before you cast your first vote. Please don’t depend on hearsay or go along with your friends. Get the facts! You will be proud you did.

In closing, my little Addie has begun softball practice already. I guess she will miss riding the three- wheeler every day all over the place. She and her brother Zack and their friend Peyton Ryan have probably ridden 1,000 miles this summer around our property. They are fun to watch. I can’t believe Addie’s already in the third grade. Time gets away so fast!
