I have a new body part. It’s a hip! Yes, the good Lord and the talented doctor blessed me with a hip replacement. I had surgery on Tuesday and was home on Wednesday. Lots of people been checking on Jack and me and caring for us. Phone calls, Facebook messages and e-mails have kept me busy answering them. Elsie and Jimmy Cartwright, Nancy and Sandy Cook, Barbara and Roger Cave, Tina and Dwight Collins, Martha Moorefield, Kaye and Tandy Pell and Yvonne Love have kept us in home cooked food. The food was much appreciated. Barbara Cave and Nancy Cook have surrounded me with beautiful flowers. Kindness is good!
Janice Lawson is really sick. Prayers for Janice.
