It's a Monday morning and you simply couldn't be feeling any better could you? I know it's not going that great for me either but we will get through it. At least there are some beautiful rays from the sun shining through the window. Once a person gets out a stirring some, you will come to life. It's in the teens this morning so most likely the "coming to life" will be coming sooner than later as you head out the door to get where you need to be whether it's work, something recreational, or checking in with the astronauts or international space station. If you're one of those lucky ones that don't have to get out, my advice would be to stay in and do a 'fixer-up' project you've not had the time to do.
Mai Nell Melton had a birthday on January 11th. A happy belated birthday to you Mai Nell. I so enjoyed talking with you. Do keep Mai Nell in your prayers and Carlon, and also Gracie Bratcher (Mai Nell's sister).
Sleet, ice, and a little snow possible come Wednesday morning. We are under a winter weather advisory and I know the kids have their fingers crossed hoping they'll not have to go to school on Wednesday. I'm rooting for you kids on this one as it sounds like road conditions will be too treacherous for a bus to be out on.
We have some people we need to be praying for: Jody Reedy, Ruth Brown, Fay Pitts, Edith Miller, Chloe Evelyn Bogle, Tracy Neal, Denise Stanton and Luther Lawrence along with Betty Gunter.
Electricity has just went off at 9:21am could be the little aliens are responsible for disrupting my plan this morning of hard work before it even got started. I really had a ton of chores to get done and could hardly wait to get started well, that's not really the case, but it does sound awfully good doesn't it. Evidently, it didn't take much for me to be discouraged as it is not 9:49am and that electricity has come back on. I'm not really in the notion now for housework. Maybe those "little green men" have done me a great favor after-all. Neighbor called this evening and has told me he caught one of the little green men in one of his traps the other day. He let him go as he felt sorry for the little alien. He said they talked a long time as the little alien can speak English. Who knew that? Clyde says he's know for years. Bobby has declined any comment at this time on the whole matter as he's no where near Clyde's age and in face no one else around here is either, after I have given some serious thought on it and people have come forward to verify this not telling me their real names. Maybe now we can learn more about them if this is a true story of them (really existing) here. Some of them are apparently still here in that devil's hole - others will be back when spring arrives. Besides people -- now aliens want to live here on the mountain. This is one "fine kettle of fish" we're in I guess. Well, it is a wonderful place to reside so I can understand why they want to be here. I hope they know they will have to pay property taxes each year and utility bills each month as there are no "freebies" allowed. If we had a CAC (Community Association Committee) in place, they would know this already.
