There was a crowd already there but there must have been 10 or 12 ladies at t he door and on up to the food bar. We were told to go on to a table that they …

Ah spring! Loving the budding trees, blooming daffodils

Editor Buckhead News 0 Comments

The time change came. The daffodils are blooming. The Bradford pear trees are blooming up the road from us and down the road. I was talking to someone about how winter temporarily left us. Many years about the time of Easter there was a rather cold spell. I have noticed that the trees are budding. Some people might plant their gardens. We haven’t had a garden in several years but if we were in the notion of having one we were not going to put it in this soon. There …

Families are getting ready for Christmas. Some are having family reunions. Others are getting ready to travel to see family out-of-town. Children are excited because Santa is coming.

They waited until after their children had seen what they were getting for Christmas from that fat jolly man St. Nick. They would all get there anywhere from mid-morning until just before lunch. I had one sister that was a “big” talker. She took up nearly …

Here I am, back again. Two weeks ago I had a pacemaker put in. It was two surgeries in one. They put in a backup pacemaker going through my groin.
