Spring 2011

We have had some very unusually cool temperatures this month in our area. It has been unusually windy as well. Gil and I have been on one short camping trip recently to White Oak Lake State Park and plan another one to Iron Mountain, near Mena, AR, soon. We will be helping fold t-shirts for the Run for the Son annual fundraiser. All Run for the Son participants receive one.

Our little garden has produced lettuce abundantly and the tomatoes and peppers are blooming. We have squash on all six plants but they are growing slowly due to the cool weather.

Gil has been to one prison ministry this month but has also spent some time getting our deck restained. He has refinished an old gun cabinet for our family room as well. We had the CMA Charity Riders at our house for our May meeting. We cooked out on the deck and enjoyed the fellowship.

Last month several of my Sunday School members and I went to Hot Springs to see the traveling Tabernacle. This was a fantastic experience. Then the class came to my house for our May meeting/fellowship. We enjoyed various salads made by us all. What fun we had.

Our church has had several fellowships this month. The Ristaurante Italiano was a lot of fun. The fish fry for the senior adults was also a great tme for all. The church-wide tailgate cookout was really nice, especially since the weather was so nice and cool.

Ooops, I see a pattern in our meetings/fellowships....most of which include eating. Guess we all better get busy walking, swimming or pushing back those plates!
