I get an ATTA boy (from me)

It was 2100 today before I actually sat down at this computer. I try to read and answer the e-mails first. Tonight I had 6,323 on the list. Okay that is a lie, I had a bunch. And Joan out in UTAH, that was not funny about the returning Indian astronaut. I did laugh though and I am still trying to figure how he is breathing,LOL.

This is Raymond Hodge, Sherry says he is a very good preacher.

I guess I will give myself an ‘atta boy’, I attended church for two services today. My cousin Paul called Sherry and said he would be visiting our home church tonight, and I should be there. His friend, Raymond Hodge, would be preaching at our church, I knew that, but I didn’t know Raymond (Even though I know, everyone loves Raymond!).

I haven’t seen Paul in many years. He is BALD. Folks said if he had a beard we would look alike, I have to admit after hearing that, he is a very handsome dude, even without hair..

Okay the really neat thing about this is after the service (which I did not hear) Paul introduced me to Raymond. In a few sentences I learned he is also a friend of Fred and Frances (Fred comments on this Blog regularly) I was very surprised because I didn’t know Fred had any other friends! (That is a joke Fred, don’t delete me as a friend.)

It was interesting also because Fred had mentioned our visit, and said some nice things and has some GREAT pictures of me (LOL), on his Blog tonight: http://fbrannen.blogspot.com/

Really, Raymond said a lot of great things about Fred and Frances. Not surprising because they both are dedicated people. I mentioned I would be e-mailing Fred tonight and/or commenting on his Blog. He said make sure to say Hello for him. SO: Hello Fred & Frances, from Raymond Hodge.
Oh yes, and Raymond also knew my Dad. Yes, it is a small world sometimes.
Thanks for coming by the log.

PS:
Why do we constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

That is a real "Attaboy" that you went to church twice in one day! I didn't earn mine today. ☺ Then for you to meet our friend Raymond Hodge - well, that just put icing on the cake. Believe it or not -- I may have at least one other preacher who will publicly acknowledge that he knows me. ☻

I've been in the fridge about every half hour since this new Vegan Diet the doctor has me on..........Ugh. Everything tastes just damn awful! LOL

Hugs, Rose
