Today we’re heading to Knoxville to help Dad get those tomato plants in the ground. He’ll be smiling for sure. I hope to have a few pictures tomorrow to show the results of our efforts.
We’ll start around 10 or 10:30 AM and we should be finished by 2:30 PM. You might be able to see us working on Dad’s web cam.
Yesterday we saw the play, Annie, which was presented by the 4th and 5th Grades at Kara’s school, Indian Springs Elementary School. Kara played the role of Grace, the secretary to Oliver Warbucks. All the students did a marvelous job, and presented an excellent and entertaining play. Here’s a few pictures I managed to take from the audience.
He didn't want his mother to walk with him.
She wanted to give him the feeling that he had some independence but yet know that he was safe. So she had an idea of how to handle it. She asked a neighbor if she would please follow him to school in the mornings, staying at a distance, so he probably wouldn't notice her.
The neighbor said she said that since she was up early with her toddler anyway, it would be a good way for them to get some exercise as well, so she agreed.
The next school day, the neighbor and her little girl set out following behind Timmy as he walked to school with another neighbor girl he knew. She did this for the whole week.
As the two walked and chatted, kicking stones and twigs, Timmy's little friend noticed the same lady was following them as she seemed to do every day all week.
Finally she said to Timmy, 'Have you noticed that lady following us to school all week? Do you know her?'
Timmy nonchalantly replied, 'Yeah, I know who she is.'
The little girl said, 'Well, who is she?'
'That's just Shirley Goodnest,' Timmy replied, 'and her daughter Marcy.'
'Shirley Goodnest? Who in the world is she, and why is she following us? '
'Well,' Timmy explained, 'every night my Mom makes me say the 23rd Psalm with my prayers, 'cuz she worries about me so much. And in the Psalm, it says, 'Shirley Goodnest and Marcy shall follow me all the days of my life', so I guess I'll just have to get used to it!'
May Shirley Goodnest and Marcy be with you today and always.
Being young is beautiful,
but being old is comfortable.
Sometimes our hearts get tangled
And our souls a little off-kilter
Friends and family can set us right
And help guide us back to the light.
Joke of the Day
A young man wanted to get his beautiful blonde wife something nice for their first wedding anniversary. So he decides to buy her a cell phone. She is all excited, she loves her phone. He shows her and explains to her all the features on the phone.
The next day the blonde goes shopping. Her phone rings and it's her husband, "Hi Hon," he says. "How do you like your new phone?"
She replies, "I just love it, it's so small and your voice is clear as a bell but there's one thing I don't understand though."
"What's that, baby?" asks the husband.
"How did you know I was at Wal-Mart?"
