Enjoying some summertime activities

Published 9:00 am Saturday, May 12, 2018

Hey Huguley  friends. It is good to see you. I hope you had a good week. My week last week was very busy. I imagine your was too.

I know most of you stay just as busy as we do. But, I have seen several folks doing some summertime activities this past week. From grilling out in the driveway, to taking an early summer swim in a brand new pool! Seems too cool yet for me! Each to his own! But, thankfully I think summer has pretty much reached us.

The Happy Citizens from Happy Valley Baptist got together for their monthly meeting last Tuesday. The meeting was called to order by President Susan Eason. She presented the program on What the Bible says about the Aged, the things He will ask of us, and the things He has promised us. It sparked several threads of thought and was well received. Following the program a delicious covered dish meal was enjoyed. During the chit-chat time we discussed several outings we might be interested in making this summer. Attending were Jack and Sue Nolan, Susan and Willard Eason, Jerry and Janis Carmack, Gene and Eva Monroe,  Linette Adams, Jeanette Tilley, Pearl Taunton, and John Samanie. Come join us sometime.

Willard and I headed to Montevallo, Alabama, last Thursday so I could attend a conference at the University. We had a chance to visit with lots of Registrars and officers of the Association on Thursday night at the local Olive Garden.  The conference began early Friday and ran until well after lunch Friday. When we left there we headed to Mobile to spend the night with a long -time friend Mary Bridler. On Saturday Willard played in the Eastern Star golf tournament. We were certainly tired travelers when we got back home that afternoon.

I don’t know about you guys, but, I am seeing garden plots coming into view in a lot of yards lately. Some of them are very small, just a few tomatoes or a small strawberry patch. But, some of them are very large. For a small family of 2 or 3 I am seeing some very nice plots that would feed a family of 15.  I know a couple of those farmers at heart!

If you do much riding around please be on the lookout for stray animals. We saw a beauty of a dog in the area of Huguley School recently. You could read her face. She had been put out. She was looking at every car I think looking for her mama and daddy. Please don’t just dump unwanted animals for someone to hit. Re-home them if possible.
