Gil and I went to the National Rally for CMA on Iron Mountain near Hatfield, AR, and had such a good time meeting with dear friends there. The preaching services each morning and evening were so inspirational that we did indeed come away from the mountain top refreshed in body, mind and spirit. CMA's Got Talent show one night was a lot of fun. Gil sang "Long Black Train" and the judges said he reminded them of Johnny Cash because of his deep bass voice. Everyone enjoyed the show!
We also took the opportunity before the rally began to once again look for a house to suit our needs if we get to move there. After touring dozens of houses with a local realtor, we decided that one we had seen in April was still the best one for us. It has a large garage/shop in the back yard that is big enough for our motorhome, both motorcycles and one car. The home itself is large and located on the main highway that goes through Mena so we would be near the hospital if needed, and best of all IT HAS A MOUNTAIN VIEW. Now we pray God will bring to us the perfect family to purchase our home in Camden.
When the rally ended, we headed for Kansas to visit Gil's family in Ft. Scott and attend his 45th high school reunion. What fun Gil had seeing his classmates, some of whom he had not seen in many years; some of whom he had not seen since grammar school at Hammond Elementary School. Our daughter Pat drove down from Wichita and was able to stay several days for a visit.
