“In these times of hustle and bustle, keep the home fires burning”
By Frances Brewer
Good morning! Yes we’re from the “old school.” In the old timey times when company was coming, in fact the word company was very seldom heard of. Well what did we say? Okay, guess what? Our neighbors are coming to sit with us ‘til bedtime, or have dinner with us so on and on. Now it seems as if a special invitation and if it’s at 12 o’clock it’s lunch and if it’s 6 o’clock in the evening it’s dinner. Oh well you cannot teach an old dog new tricks. So that’s the stage Tri-Bee is in. I have a bell on the backdoor, not the front, which says “Ring the bell and welcome.” Okay that’s just a small portion of the changes, which are being made day by day. Plus getting back to my quote, we know there were numbers of homefires burning during the past Easter season, which was a special time to rejoice and give thanks to Him, our Lord and Master who has and still is looking and caring for His own. We trust that the words of warm welcome will continue as the hustle and bustle continues. Keep smiling.
On this Monday morning so far no phone calls. However having attended the church services was a blessing. As usual the attendance was up, which usually is on that “Special Day.” Tri-Bee and Bethany both presented their Easter cantatas, which they all did their best and enjoyed. For the Trinity services visitors, relatives, children’s church and Pastor Jerry Lee with his message followed by communion. Trust that you were among the ones to be at these services.
The fifth Sunday night will be presenting the church choir and different specials, perhaps since spring is here the sick ones will soon be back to their speedy recovery.
Martha Sue Harper is expected to be back in her good old cozy room at home knowing all the family members will care for her then Martha Sue will say with that smile, “Thank you so much.”
Sadie Porter, as usual “oh well I’m coming along here in the TCU,” plus Garvin Prickett is still there. Yet where is the next place to recuperate? Gerald Cathey continues to walk a little further each day yet, “Yes still in pain”; Dorothy Bumgarner with all her wheel equipment attended Trinity service Sunday.
William and Gloria Crews’ house was open and filled with family members from both all the families enjoyed the closely knit family members for dinner on Sunday. No way can I cover the district I’m obligated to from 441, Fairview, Seven Island Road, Crawford Road, Bethany Road and Baldwin Dairy Road, then ending up here in the midst of Barrows Grove Road.
I can go over to the old Buckhead Road where family members of Georgie Mae Carpenter all enjoyed Easter in the home of Millie and Wayne Henson. Jerry was Mom’s head nurse for the day.
The Tommy Cathey’s family members were all together.
Last weekend Mr. and Mrs. Jake Wilson enjoyed their out-of-town children visiting with them during the week. Bertie Alligood of Lebanon, Tennessee enjoyed spending part of her spring break with her parents. Tim and Casey Wilson of Roswell came down on Friday night and spent Saturday. Kathy Wilson was in Belgium on a business trip. Leon Alligood came down and spent Saturday and Sunday. Bruce and Rachel Harper and family and Marty and Connie Wilson joined them for Sunday dinner.
Little Peyton Fortson, son of Marc and Laurie Fortson, celebrated his birthday last Saturday down at the lake house of Stewart and Karen Thigpen’s on Lake Sinclair. Blanche and Jake Wilson. Bertie Alligood and Tim and Casey Wilson joined them for a cookout in honor of Peyton. Other family members were also present, especially his little cousin Jackson, son of Stewart and Karen.
Well Tri-Bee? Oh yes all we had to do is lookout the window, saw that Stacey and Rene, Gray from Conyers and Keith away we go and enjoyed the Sunday meal with James Melvin and Inez Brewer.
Ralph Brewer’s garden temperature we believe is about to get to normal. By the way the garden equipment is being oiled up. So is Mark Tewksbury’s, yet he has to give his horses more exercise. I got my first hour and a half of mowing this pat week. Made plans for a whole week plus the next door neighbors have begun with their outdoor task. What? Yes an opening for your Monday morning therapy.
