We have a beautiful Sunday evening up here on the mountain. Sure have a lot to be thankful for and I know you do too.
With Thanksgiving coming up here very soon, everyone will be thinking about the feast of food they will be eating. Utmost in our minds should be the one who has supplied all of this bounty for us. Do give God thanks for all your blessings. After all, HE supplies us with everything that we need, doesn't HE? The tradition of giving HIM thanks at Thanksgiving really should be a daily routine all year long. I start my day off with praise to HIM for keeping me through the night to see another morning and in that honor HIM in everything I say and do. This life is not about us - it is all about HIM. Whatever trial you maybe going through - just lean on HIM and HE will guide you every step of the way to work your problem out as only HE can do. This girl, HE has never let down and HE will do the same for you because HE is the only true friend you will ever have.
Weatherman saying we are going to have a round of the coldest weather we've had this fall season about the middle of the week.
Talking with Donna Lawson on Friday, and she is doing some better, but still keep her in prayer.
Ms. Beulah Arnold and I had a delightful conversation on Sunday morning. Quite a gem of a lady and ever so glad we are friends.
Received a call from Joanne Shipper from the Statesville community in Wilson County Thursday. Her dad (Mr. Dewey Corley) gets the Cannon Courier and he loves those little green men in the column. Loved talking to you Joanne and you made my day to tell me about your dad. Some other people have told me they love the little green men too. Joanne thinks the little aliens are in that devil's hole just like my neighbor does. Only time will tell and I will keep you posted on my findings part of the time.
Have been seeing the commercials on TV for those Dukes of Hazard guys Bo and Luke. Now that brings back some fine memories. Loved the show and its host of characters. The car chases so much fun to watch as the Duke boys trying to out run the law with the sheriff being Roscoe P. Coltrain after them. Boss Hogg was the villain as there always has to be one and he filled the role quite nicely. My Aunt Lydia Parsley got a kick out of the show as I did. We would call each other "dipstick" most of the time, because of that show. Sure wished she could have stayed with us a lot longer. Mom and all of us loved and treasured this very special lady in our lives. Memories of her to last us for a lifetime. She is with Jesus now. Maybe when I enter heaven someday, I'll hear her beautiful voice saying "dipstick" it's about time. Now won't that be worth it all to this girl? You bet!

Moles having a field day prying in our back yard. Very unusual where they are as they have never been this close to our house. Mom used to get a hoe and stand and watch the ground as the varmints were prying and she would dig behind where the mole had just pried and would be able to get him out of there and kill him with the hoe. Never have done this but if this is moles, as I think it is or hope it is, I'll do what Mom did.
Cousin Peggy/that diva giving me a call this Monday evening from New Hampshire. Really happy about the call as she is doing well. She is taking off to Las Vegas this weekend. Told her to be careful about those slot machines I have only heard about in the TV commercial programming. As I've told you, some things I can pass up without a second thought and Las Vegas would be one of them. An airplane flight and a boat ride the next two things I can do without. This is just Carol, and I like my feet planted on solid ground, but I'm hoping our diva has a really fun time, while she is there. Peggy has told me she loves reading about the little green men in the column. I sure do get a lot of comments about them.
If you have any news for the column, just give me a call at (615) 563-4429. Have a great day!
O God, thou hast taught me form my youth: and hitherts have I declared thy wondrous works.
Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come. Psalm 71: 17-18
