It's not a rainy night in Georgia but a pretty wet one in Tennessee this Saturday night. Awfully good sleeping weather for most of us. Very cold weather coming in on the backside of all this rain later on tonight.
Sunday morning has arrived and a few snow flurries coming down to add to the little skiff of snow that is on everything around here but the road. That is good for everyone that will be traveling to church. The sun will be back out later on today but it will be deceiving as it will be bitterly cold and even colder; tonight in the teens.
Yearning for spring and warmer weather I am and I bet you are, too. Getting those flower and seed catalogs now so I guess it can't be long for better weather can it? Yes, I am day dreaming I know. We'll most likely be in the deep freeze for quite a while before the light of the day comes back so to speak and those warmer temps we will be welcoming.
Charlie Mai Daniel has a birthday coming up on January 25th. Happy Birthday, Charlie Mai, and I hope you have a good one!
Supposed to be getting better with age bit it's not that way with me but I guess it's better late than never with these late December anniversaries: Ray and Joann Braswell 21st (30 Years), Rex and Sepal Pedigo 22nd (48 years), Houston and Martha Parker 26th (40 years).
Please keep the following people in prayer: Jody Reedy, Chloe Evelyn Bogle, Ruth Brown, Fay Pitts, Edith Miller, Carlon Melton and Mai Nell, especially, in the loss of her daughter Kathy Martin, Tracy Neal, Luther Lawrence, and Denise Stanton. Also, Betty Gunter not feeling good. Do uplift her in prayer.
Mr. Corley needs to know the latest on the aliens so here goes. Very hard to believe but the "little green men" and that "invisible cow" are all in big trouble now as they were caught on tape supposedly stealing someone's hog from a trailer over at Half Acre and of all things in broad daylight. Clyde and Bobby believe this was a set up and that they will get to the bottom of this. Can yo9u honestly picture them as detectives? I can't either. I will say the aliens and the cow tried to sabotage Clyde and my birthday bash back in December so I would not put it past them to pull a stunt like this just for the publicity they would be getting. My only comment on all of this is good luck as I don't have a dog in that fight as "Aubrey" would say.
Found on last year's calendar some interesting details in the weather for March 2015. On March 16th I push-mowed our back yard. The temperature was 80 degrees that day. The next day I washed my truck as it was 75 degrees. Just seven days later on March 23rd I mowed both yards. Sure hope we can duplicate that kind of weather again in 2016 for march.
Seems like "lottery fever" is in high gear with the jackpot of 1.5 billion dollars up for grabs. A person has a 1 in 292 million chance of winning. Not good odds is it? But you know somebody's gonna win it.
A funny tidbit of a story on my radio station today. This guy was going to be coming into a large sum of money around $100,000. He had a bad heart so his kids were hesitant to tell him for fear of what that kind of news would do to their father. They though his pastor could do a better job of delivering the information to him. The pastor and the man discussed a lot of issues and the pastor finally asked the man what would he do if he received a lot of money say $100,000? The man thought for a second then he said why I would give every penny of it to the church. The pastor then fell dead!
