There’s a benefit today, Saturday, July 15, at the Lockhart Fire Department. It starts at 11 a.m. and runs until. It’s for Elizabeth Cody. She is just 32 years old, with a lifelong illness, wheelchair bound, and has to use a lift to get out of bed.

M&G Repairs, and Ashley Castle are putting this benefit on. They are hoping to make enough money to put a ramp on her house and double doors in order to get her out of the house easier in case of a fire.

Go up to the fire department and have a good time for her. Cornhole tournament is $20 a team. There’s also a hot dog dinner which includes twp hot dogs, chips, drink and slaw for just $6. And they are also having a bake sale.

Don’t forget, today, Saturday, at 11 a.m. at the Lockhart Fire Department.

Thank You

Ann Trakas is wanting to thank everyone that have sent her cards, letters and prayers for her recovery. She said these meant the world to her, and wants all of you to know these wonderful thoughts have really helped her pull through such a difficult time in her life.

She is on the road to a better and new lifestyle (her words). She had a serious operation, but is looking forward to going back to work (not quite sure when, yet) and seeing all of you (slowly at first). Then look out, The Boss will be in full swing after a full recovery.

The preacher calls her the Boss. He comes in Town Hall for a short visit then tells us he has to get over to the church to see what The Boss wants him to do.

Our best wishes are with Ann.

Shopping For Clothes

Let me tell you what kind of a shopper I am. Today was my second trip to Spartanburg to buy some new clothes. Now I figure I haven’t any taste in clothes what-so-ever, or I really don’t want any.

Last week I went to the mall in Spartanburg. Belk, Dillard’s, Penny’s, and Sears. Now when I see a sign for a good sale that’s what I expect. Belk capri’s — buy one get two free, sounds great, but the price of one was $56. So how is almost $20 apeice a sale? Dillard’s — $65-$124 with 10% off.

Well it just went on and on at each store, and I really didn’t get in the mood. Today I hit, Hamrick’s (my first and last time), Kohl’s, M something Clothes, Target, then I wandered to the other side and hit Marshall’s. First time in most of these, except Target. In and out really fast. Maybe I need to recheck my closet, and apologize for not being in style. I guess that lifestyle went out when I had to be divorced and broke.

Yard Work

Chuck and I carried two trailer loads cedar plus more in the back of his truck last Friday, and still have more to go. Then Saturday I was back on my hill, and finally ran out of gas in the mower, battery recharging in the weed eater, 8 at night, and my gas and battery was tired also. One day I’ll get all this finished. If I can get the hill really cleaned I would like to plant some kind of flowering bush that attracts butterflies and bees. I think that would be so nice to sit and watch. One day!!

Just Informed

Gina just informed me that you all aren’t interested in my shopping trips, but if you’re waiting on me for a lot of excitement you really will be bored.

Well I should finish and say good night. Call me at 1-864-545-6652.
