Perfect weather, blooming roses, fishing and new roofs
By Lois Harper
Good morning, May 19 and another blessing from God in perfect weather and all the beautiful roses blooming everywhere. The Garden of Eden couldn’t have been lovelier.
The sweet shrub that we dug up and planted has survived growing among the azaleas and has an aromatic odor passing by from the woods on Double Bridges Road years ago.
The squirrels and the little chipmunks are burrowing around in the backyard because there’s no cat around unless a stray one comes along.
These kind of days brings back a memory of fishing with Granny Hooper using a cane pole. She was an aid fisherman, getting excited over a small or large brim. While sitting silent until a fish grabbed her hook then letting out a whoop loudly, swinging that fish out of the water. This time I didn’t have time to dodge and got slapped in the face in the process. Fishing with her was never dull. Granny you were a character.
This fish story was told sometimes back by a cooking show host on GPTV about two friends fishing out in a boat sipping on strawberry wine. A large fish jumped up and landed in the boat. One grabbed it and threw it back in the water. As the other one asked, “Why did you do that, that was a big fish? The reply he got was “I don’t want anything I didn’t catch.”
This coming weekend give special tribute and honor in memorial to the staggering number of our military sacrificing their lives, fighting to keep our country free in all wars. Pray for peace and our troops can come home before giving the supreme sacrifice.
The sound of new roofs being put on is pretty much all over Rutledge from the hail damage.

Being a dab under the weather since last week I haven’t anything much about the neighbors not making it to church Sunday.
