Well, Iím still alive, what a nice wedding we had last Saturday the 17th. My grandson was married at 4:00 p.m. and it was so pretty. I was there and was thinking, ďlady your getting old, this groom was my grandson,Ē it makes one think a little, how fast the time does go. Yes there is a lot of getting ready for a wedding, but when all is done, itís a great day for all. On Sunday we were all out to my sonís house and they opened up their gifts. The weather was just beautiful both days. After the gifts were all opened we had a nice lunch, so all in all it was a big weekend. My granddaughter Desie and husband were here from Canton, North Carolina and it was so nice to see them. I hadnít seen Desie since she was married, which will be two years already. Here is wishing the newlyweds good luck and wishing Desie and Mat a happy trip back to North Carolina. ďGod bless you all.Ē
Love, Grandma.

A rather plain young farmer was proposing marriage to his pretty sweetheart. ďI know Iím not much to look at,Ē he admitted. The young lady nodded, ďthatís all right - youíll be out in the fields most of the time.Ē

Ole tells about a car he bought with a Norwegian transmission. Itís shiftless.

A morning Glory lost its way,
it climbed and bloomed
one Summer day.
It was the strangest sight to see,
blue blossoms on a Maple tree.

Hints

A way to make box cake mixes outstanding is to add 1 cup sour cream, 1 tsp soda and some good flavoring to the regular direction on a box of cake mix. Bake the cake just a little longer than directed. It makes a texture that melts in your mouth. You can use it with cherry, yellow, white, and chocolate cake mixes.
. . . . .
Let us all be thankful
The time has come to harvest all
the fields of golden grain,
Godís bounty overflowing
from every fertile plain.
The haystacks now are ready,
in rows the bundles stand,
awaiting farmers wagons
God bless this fruitful land.
And barn doors that are open
and gently swinging wide,
to welcome all the harvest
that God helped place inside.

~Until next week, Annabelle
