Condolences to the family and friends of Mary Curtis. She was a character and will definitely be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Wayne and Terrie Griffiths were recent visitors of mine and Dustin. There is nothing like a sister to share life with. Dustin loves to have Uncle Wayne visit and I think they do as much storytelling as Dustin and Papa Dixon. There sure was lots of laughing going on.
Flowers are popping up, and fiddleheads and dandelion greens are growing fast. We are finally getting some nice weather and the grass is growing too fast. The ground is so wet that I have to get myself unstuck every once in a while. Dustin has lots of advice when that happens.
Trevor Noah is quoted as saying, “Just as a general rule, nothing should change midflight, ever.”
Have a great week and enjoy those fiddleheads.
