God and Country

Tonight I attended the God and Country Celebration that is held every year in Minden. Small town America is just the epitomy of God and Country. These are the people who hold this country together. It is not Washington or NYC or LA, but those awesome small towns in middle America. This was just a beautiful patriotic and religious program presented by the community choir and orchestra. Our military was honored, our firefighters and law enforcers were honored, our veterans were honored and our God was honored. It was beautiful! Pray for our country!

Back from Texas

I had a very successful trip back to Orange and Beaumont. As things worked out, I ended up getting a hotel room in Beaumont. I forgot that my friend where I was supposed to stay had a cat and I am highly allergic to cats. The dander specifically affects my eyes the most and since the purpose of my trip was to have a procedure done on my eye, I could not take that chance. There are lots of other places I could have stayed, but I would have had to call them and ask to stay with short notice. I refuse to do that. I also managed to see a lot of my old friends who happened to be at the Country Club where we went for lunch. They were really surprised to see me because no one knew I was coming. It happened too fast for me to contact people I wanted to see.

I also managed to squeeze in a trip to my hairdresser and my tire man. Got a new set of tires which should last several years since I am not driving nearly as much as I used to. It was a good trip, but I am glad to be home taking care of my yard and plants. I had a CK procedure on one eye, so I can't get out in the heat and get busy mowing for a few days, but at least I can keep things watered so they don't die!!
