“By the time you find the grass greener on the other side, you’ll be too old to climb the fence”
By Frances Brewer
Good morning! You better believe it plus all that mowing, getting down on your “tummy” putting the belt back on; changing the oil so on and on. Don’t you think it’s about time to make yourself content whatever stage of life you are in whether it be young, middle age or even in your “Gay” nineties. There is always a bright side rather than the lights getting dimmer, clean your reading glasses, get an old raged t- shirt, get the spider webs, then go to the ceiling fans. What next? Let your recliner air out then if weather permits get the brush pile going; “Don’t forget to get a fire permit.” Well what’s next? You can easily tell I’m from the “ole school.” Cannot find my degree in journalism. It could not be found 55 years ago so I’m given up hope. If the “Editor” and Monaray will just let me have my own way I might last a few more days. In all the ways acknowledge Him and He will direct our way. Keep smiling.
Well where were you on this past Sunday? As for both services at Trinity and Bethany the services were well attended including the messages from pastors, Pastor Green and Pastor Jerry. Both are looking forward to their Easter cantatas. The Trinity choir and the Ladies ensemble are indeed a blessing plus the Awana’s and on Friday nights the Reformers Unanimous continues to be an evening of good Bible study; a study of the Word addicted to what? Come and take notes.
Okay again it is good to still appreciate things the good Lord intended for us. Something good for the heart and nothing that’s harmful to the body. Here we go the four Cathey boys surprised Kate Cathey on Saturday night with the family members and a couple of friends for her 97th birthday at Bonner’s Restaurant.
Our neighbor Nancy Mitchell’s family members and friends all gathered at the Mitchell’s house on Sunday for what? Congratulations to Who? Nancy? 50th birthday. The yard was full of cars so I thought it looked like a funeral possession.
Harriett Wade continues to be doing real well and does enjoy getting out and especially with many friends at the Senior Center.
I was asked why don’t you come? I really don’t have the time. By the time I get through with this Monday morning therapy, which last almost two hours I’m worn to a frazzle.
So trust the closed in ones are seeing better days. Helen Woodford (Jimmy’s Body Shop) has recently had shoulder surgery; Mrs. Sandra Holland, a Cedar Grove resident, is in Newton County Hospital recovering from a broken leg. Who else? Hazel Jordan on crutches from a recent fall; Lorene Jordan is taking therapy from a minor illness; Sadie Porter has indeed make improvements being a patient in the TCU.
At this writing we hear that Joe Ward is sick in Athens Regional Hospital in Athens. Trust he’ll soon be repairing boats again real soon.
The Jake Wilsons enjoyed Tim Wilson and his family coming down for their evening meal Saturday night.
It seems as if we skip about somewhat yet another real ill patient is Ted West who has been sick for quite a while and is in the TCU here in Madison. Ted’s wife Nancy and their daughter Teddie Sue Wilson are thankful for a slight improvement.
Okay let’s get up and go somewhat an hour earlier Sunday. Check all your clocks.
