VIEW FROM MY FRONT PORCH. 8/16/16
By: Monica Thomas
I've been very busy this week so enjoyed the Women's Prayer Breakfast, the Family Fun Day at the Fair Grounds, picked some blueberries at Kate's there is still plenty. Attended the Alex lyvec concert with my grandson, the guy can really play the guitar. I must say I'm happy about the rain, yet my rain barrel has sprung a leak and the high humidity and heat is making my MS act up. Hope everyone with medical issues is taking extra precautions in this heat. Have a great week.
