After a doctor’s appointment on Tuesday in Athens I visited my sister Alice Cheatham, nephew Donald Cheatham and a long-time friend Inez Kennedy whom I had not seen in a very long time. We grew up together in Athens, then when we both married we moved in different directions. Sure was good to see her again. My nephew runs a garage, Inez had brought her car there to have him check the brakes or something, she and Donald are cousins on his dad’s side of the family.
