We have been babysitting a lot more these days, including weekends. Because of staffing issues his mother has had to change her schedule to accommodate, and so we get more time with our mischievous little wonder. Which means it is harder to get some things accomplished like trying to make up for lost time on renovating the house.
This old house has so much character, and I really want to preserve it, but also want some modern amenities. Such amenities as proper insulation, proper wiring and safety, so the old heart pine on the interior walls is coming down, then rewiring, insulating, and hanging drywall which is safer than old heart pine when it comes to fire.
So, this past weekend I got one day to get things done and was moving along nicely until closer to the ceiling where the boards are much longer. Instead of dropping straight down one board decided to do a flip and nailed my hand. Literally the nail in the board penetrated my hand between my forefinger and middle finger. I was able to treat, and mend will be just fine, but it did slow me down.
The band Rodger is in, Pros & Cons, was invited to play at Red Hill Community Center in Eclectic last weekend. Seems they were well received, with folks out on the dance floor, and they were invited back to play again in the future. There were 84 folks in attendance at Red Hill Community Center; nice that folks over in Eclectic get out and enjoy live music.
There is not a Neighborhood Watch meeting for the month of November. I will update you all on the combined November/December Neighborhood Watch as soon as schedules get solidified and confirmed, but it will probably be December 14.
The last Saturday of the month, November 25, will be Community Bingo from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Equality Fire Department Lodge. This is a fund-raising event to support the Equality Volunteer Fire Department. It is $1 a card, and they will play 10 games with prizes. There will also be refreshments for sale.
Ramona Cina will be the caller. Last month it was Matthew Reams, and then December will be Jamey Johnson. All three are running for Coosa County circuit clerk. This is a great opportunity to meet the candidates. If anyone is interest in calling bingo just let Jackie Dean know.
Tonight, November 10, is Open Mic Night at Coosa County Live, the Equality performing arts center. Come enjoy an evening out enjoying live music by the band Pros & Cons, and other artists that may show up, or share your own talents.
While it is not mandatory, you are encouraged to bring a dish of shareable food for our “Potluck,” and if you can afford to drop something into the donation jar for the music, it helps keep the lights on. The EPAC provides free coffee, iced tea, water, and fresh-popped popcorn, as well as some of the potluck offerings.
I depend upon my readers to share with me what is happening within your organizations, churches, neighborhoods, groups, or family to share in next week’s column. Please contact me; leave a voice message or text 256-531-6460 or email at email@example.com.
