Delmar and I went shopping on Monday and stopped by Lambert’s for lunch and ate way too much. We later stopped by and visited with Keith and Donna Bannister and did some pretty fancy bowling. It was a fun time to spend for my 70th birthday.
On Saturday, my three daughters hosted a birthday party for me and surprised me with some out-of-state family who came to help celebrate. I truly am blessed with a loving family, even my ornery brother, Vern Deatherage, love you brother and appreciate you for the picture in last week’s paper.
Delmar and I were surprised with a visit from my cousin, Preston Breshears, from Rosie, Arkansas, on Monday. Also, Jack and Barb Breshears.
I was blessed with the opportunity to baby-sit with two beautiful little dolls on Friday morning. Miley and Mahayla Hamby are such a joy to have as neighbors, along with their siblings and mamma and daddy, grandma and grandpa too. We have such wonderful neighbors. We love and appreciate them all.
I heard through-the-grapevine that we are getting some new neighbors on the other side and that they will be bringing a new baby into the neighborhood in September. We love having new babies around. It helps to keep us young.
Until next week, enjoy the weather changes as they come along.
