This & That, May 10, 2022

WOW! After so much rain, a few days of glorious sunshine makes you want to get out and plant something or enjoy the flowers that have appeared, but first you will need to mow the yard.

It is a very busy time of the year. The end of school is near. Prom, Parties, Programs, Graduations, Ballgames, Track & Field Meets. The list goes on and on. Then the Cemetery Decorations at different cemeteries.

Weddings, family reunions, and any number of other things such as camping and fishing.

I want to wish a “late” Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers. We had a nice day with the sun shining.

The Westmoreland family had their family reunion at the Westmoreland Park. It is always at the end of April, but as many things ceased due to COVID, they had missed a couple of years. There was lots of good food, and the grown-ups visited as the children played. It was a very nice day.

Iris update: I had several more colors to pop up, but some are still missing. Maybe next year.

Happy Birthday to Marvin Cameron and Lisa Napier both on May 12, to Leneal Christie on May 15, to Hayden Woodhull on May 16, to Sue Vaught on May 21, Diana Foshee on May 22, to Lynette Hill on May 25. We wish you all many more.
