We have been enjoying some beautiful fall weather. The plants on my hill seem to perk up with the cooler weather. I have been almost fearful to look outside these cool morning as I have not brought anything into the green house, except a few of Chuck’s tropical plants, but I just know that soon we will have a frost.
My good neighbors Joyce and Doyle Boatner shared some nice bell pepper from the garden. Also Linda and Bobby Lewis gave me some really good greens that I shared with my sister Nellie. She has been telling me how much she has been enjoying them, sometimes making them a part of her meal three times a day.
We send our condolences to the Berryhill families in the loss of their loved one. They have had a loss of two family members in the space of a few months. God bless and comfort you.
Also our sympathy to Pat and Lisa James and families in the loss of Pat’s Dad. He lived in Florida .May you be blessed with comfort from our Lord.
I have been writing in the past about my son Chuck having taken several trips to Cambodia to try to get through all the red tape involved in bringing his wife to this country. It has finally happened. Sally arrived in Memphis on last Friday night and they came to see Austin and me Saturday. We had spoken with Sally on Skype many times and had corresponded via e-mail. She is just as we had expected except for being very tiny. She looks like a little girl, a very sweet lady and we welcome her to the family as well as to the USA.
In talking with my neighbor Carolyn Scott, she tells me that she enjoyed having all three of her grandchildren for an overnight visit. They are the children of John and Katherine Scott from Oxford. They are Kara, Rhodes, and Anna.
Nellie Dawson had visitors from Byhalia this past week: Jim and Karen Castleberry and their granddaughter Briana and her husband.
Austin and I have both had colds and bad coughs that seem to hang on and on. We did not feel sick after a couple days passed but the cough is worrisome. So much so that I have made an appointment for Austin at the doctor’s office on Monday. He is not happy with this as he says it will just mess up his one day off for fall break.
This is all for now but I leave you with this thought. It comes from Mary Radmcher who said “Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying ‘I will try again tomorrow.’”
