I was lucky enough to bump into Ronnie Cooley at the BUMC bazaar and snag three loaves of Ms. Ada's light bread before they even got to the baked goods room. She hasn't lost her touch! And I was also lucky enough, even having spilled my chili on my truck seat, to beat everybody to Florine Lord's wine cakes and Leona Smylie's pecan pie. My husband spent the rest of the weekend with a smile on his face. However, I wasn't lucky enough to win one of the quilts, even though I bought lots of raffle tickets. Maybe next year...
Remember, the Christmas parade is coming up. Be thinking about what you want to enter, a classic car, a pet, just anything that moves! If things work out right, the weather will be cold but sunny – last year, it drizzled and was cold, but a lot of people turned out and a good time was had by all! Don't forget the courthouse lighting the day after Thanksgiving. We always have a lot of fun singing carols on the steps. We may not be great but we are enthusiastic, so come join in. We'll be glad to have you.
The rest of the year is going to go by really quickly and there will be lots of things to see and do, so get involved and have some fun! I will be looking for you.
