Remember those special to you
Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye and creates wonderful caring friendships among folks that are lasting. Don’t forget those special to you; send them a note or an email. Even a wave across the supermarket or that parking lot.
Many love to text and phone, but being an old-fashioned gal, that’s just not me. If I were to text, may as well just call, or better yet send a quick email, pretty much the same thing I’d think. I did lots of business phone work over many years, and now each time the phone rings I cringe. We get our share of telemarketers and hang up on those calls. You can also fool them by just saying “hold on,” then put the phone down and walk away, leaving them waiting.
Wow, and on Monday, the heaviest of the rains came; the others were just teasers.
Remember that July 16 is supposed to be National Ice Cream Day; so be sure you have on hand some of that super creamy cold stuff to help along this enormous celebration.
Did you see the nice article in “Alabama Living” (if you are in the rural electric co-op area) about Herb Winches, former sports radio station jockey? The owner, Herb, decided that if he built for food and drinks at Parker Creek, they would come, and grow it did. Great location, if you can handle the Coosa County rough road; pretty lawns surround a super “holiday” looking place with a walk-up order bar, tables, chairs, and a great atmosphere. Ron and I have eaten there once, and it was excellent. Who knows, maybe the Coosa Highway Department would have done some improvements by later this summer; we’d love to go again.
The Church in the Pines at Children’s Harbor invites all to attend its comfortable open-air gatherings during summer on Sundays 9-9:45 a.m. The guest speaker this Sunday, July 18, will be Brian Ericson of the Trinity United Methodist Church in Birmingham to share his thoughts.
Mark your calendars for the inaugural Back to School Bash at Equality’s Main Street Bethesda Baptist Church, which is August 7, and fun is guaranteed. The church seems to be going all-out to entertain the youth this summer and provide the space, tools and guidance for a fun time. Everyone is welcome, all denominations, to enjoy the youth games. July 28 is Summer Youth Family Night, starting at 6 p.m. If you have questions, please call Becky Dansby at 334-293-1379.
The shrubs and flowers have enjoyed the rains; hopefully the veggie gardens did quite well this year, as well.
Until next week, enjoy the sunny sunshiny spots, and keep smiling
