Well, who would have thought when I went to the Senior Citizen Prom I would come home a queen? Totally surprised when they drew my name, but it was a lot of fun. The food was good, and I want to thank all of the home health agencies, Visiting Angels, Patricia Fisher and the Senior Citizen Center for all of the wonderful door prizes.

You need a place to hang out now that it is hot, a place to have fun, and a place to exercise? Just hop on down to the Senior Citizen Center for all of that and more. There is Seniorcize, bingo, bridge, ceramics, books to borrow, and a whole lot more. Just check it out.

Upcoming events at the Senior Citizen Center:

Friday, July 29, 10:45 a.m. — Monthly birthday party sponsored by At Home Healthcare. Everyone that has a birthday in July will receive a gift.

Wednesday, Aug. 3, 8:30 - 9:30 a.m. — Blood Pressure and Blood Sugar Clinic sponsored by 1st Choice Home Health. They are always at the Senior Center on the 1st Wednesday of the month.

Friday, Aug. 5, 10:45 a.m. — "Angel Delights with Ashley" sponsored by Angels Care Home Health. Ashley brings desserts every month and has a game for everyone to play to win prizes.

Friday, Aug. 19, 10 a.m. — Blood Pressure and Blood Sugar Clinic sponsored by Mays Home Health Care

One day last week, Friday I think, I decided it was cool enough to walk home from my Mom's. I do need to do this more often. I see someone coming down the road riding a John Deere Gator picking up cans along the road. It was Billy Broyles. I am so thankful for Billy for keeping the roads nice and clean.

Have been attending the Brashear Baptist Church during their revival this week, it has been a blessing to Tom and me. We were warmly welcomed by David Burns. We also have met a lot of good people (who I will try to list), good food, and of course a good message from Paul Pogue. I have met Brenda White, Gordon (the music minister at Brashear Baptist), and saw several of my students I had while teaching school. The music, by Chad and Melaina Ferrell, was great, too. Their son, Zackary, also sang and played. He is really good for such a young man.

With the burn ban on, some of us are starting to dump trash along the side of the road. I am going to contact Beth Wisenbaker to see if the dumpster is still at the Precinct 1 barn so we can use it to get rid of trash.

Red George came by and gave us two of his large cantaloupes. Thanks, Red. The garden is through for this summer but Tom is getting ready to plant (if we can get some more rain) his fall garden.

Coyotes are plentiful. We have been watching two that have a ritual. They come out of the hay bales in the back and go across our pasture every evening between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. It does not seem to bother them that we are right there. Then the next morning, between 6 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., they go back across the pasture. We can almost set the clock by them. They are large. Our dog has been barking a lot at night so we think there may be a lot more around. I have never heard of them attacking a human, but I do not know what they might do if hungry enough. We usually see two or more on Thursday morning on our way to town around 6:30 a.m. Be careful.

The rain and the clouds made today a nice day even though it did clear off. We all might want to make an effort to start praying for the Lord to grace us with some rain to relieve the heat and the drought. So in closing, I just want to say check on others and make sure they are doing everything they can to be safe during this extreme heat. I am so thankful for the little things in life; I have two fans blowing on my face because of hot flashes every night. So take care and be thankful for all the Lord provides for us.
