Hello everyone – Is is hot enough for you? After a lingering mild winter,we just zoomed from cold to hot summer, not many spring days for porch sittin’ and walking. Even “Gottrocks” The Birthday Fairy had a special coolant container underneath his wings, as he texted me with birthday wishes.
Happy Birthday Wishes to Charlie A. Wilbanks, Stan Coleman, Tammy Claytor, Jeanne McCarley, Tommy “ShagMan” King, Kim Shields, LaVerne Brock, Hunter Wagner, and special in Memory Wishes to the late Debera Sturkey. The recent festival wasn’t quite the same without our “Dancin Lady.”
We say Happy Anniversary wishes to Sue and “Trigger” Jennings, Donna and Glen Bumgarner.
