Our dinner date did not come about. Mary is in the hospital here in Knoxville. If you pray, remember her. If you don’t pray, think positive for our friend. It is some type of blockage. She is now in her 80’s, she has been a healthy person, but these bodies let us down some times.
We will catch her the next time through. We at first planned to stop by her room in the morning, but having spent a lot of time visiting and assisting in hospitals, that is the time of Dr’s rounds, tests and house cleaning, not a good time to ‘drop-in’, Sherry will talk with her on the phone.
(Fred singing and Frances enjoying some wild flowers he had just presented to her.)
Today, Friday, we are headed for Cleveland, Tennessee, to see Friend Fred Alton and his lovely wife Frances. We hope to see Fred’s mom also, she is a darling at 90yrs+
This is George and Donna.
(Here they are in a jam session at our reunion)
We will also see George Coleman a friend from the late 50’s in the USAF and his lovely wife Donna. Donna was a member of the Singing Branhams, a Southern Gospel group, well known in many parts of the south. George met Donna when the Branhams took him on as a B &B, (I just made that up,) he was their Bass singer and Bus driver.
George was the one I introduced in another entry that worked on Air force One for years, in communications.
While serving in the USAF, George and I met Fred in Biloxi. But friend Fred was of the Coast Guard stripe, we forgave him for that. .
This trip is winding down. I hate to see it end but there are a few things we must do in NC, including get our Grandson Joshua, married off.
BTW, I need to e-mail him to find out where we are going on the honeymoon. Sherry and I will have to start planning. I am sure they want Grandpa and Grandma along, don’t you think? SURE!!!
Thanks for coming by the log. I know you have lots better to do.
