Weekend in Pierce

Category: Everyday News
Posted by: A

This Weekend's Top Ten:

1...Grandpa joined us in Pierce for the weekend!  Always a laugh, joy, joke, and a smile!  And if he fails at any other sport he's great at ping-pong. :-)  He remains the king so far in Lindsey Land!

2...the school is looking great!  So much work those guys have put into it!  I'm so proud of them.  They've worked so hard, and despite their complaining that it's a mess and it's overwhelming, they're doing awesome!  It can be so discouraging in a project to not have even ONE place to go that is complete and doesn't need work.  They're handling it admirably!

3...We did the video footage for the ABC Extreme Home Makeover courtesy of a videographer in Bowling Green, KY on Saturday.  It was fun, however, different!

4...We had two concerts in our community on Sunday and finally discovered where all of our neighbors are from whereas before we really felt like we couldn't possiby have so many - they were simply living in the sky!  From where we are we can't see the "real" community, but in the three mile long drive to Oak Grove Baptist Church on Sunday morning I counted 73 homes...and met most of the people living in them!  We've begun this little stunt where people have begun coming up to us and we seem them forming the words "Hi!  I'm your new neighbor!"  And just for clarification, you hear that and think "awesome!" about one hundred times before you start getting really...ummm...confused. :-)  So we've begun to interupt them as they finish the "hi" part and say "oh, are you my new neighbr, too?!" :-)  They laugh at us! Don't let those seemingly back country roads fool you!  There's hair salons, restaurants, dairy farms and convenience stores dotted here and there and everywhere... :-)

5...I cleaned the boys bathroom at the school - after the showers were installed.  I'm still trying to figure out how in the world compound joint got on the 12 (or ten, very little difference) foot CEILINGS.  Wow, wow, wow!  I couldn't figure out how to get it off either...oh well, the commodes and floors and stalls kept me busy for three solid hours.  I can't wait to attack the girls room!  LOL!

6...I call this an event, but it's really very sad to us.  Jack Hurt of the Spirituals passed away yesterday morning.  Be keeping that precious family in your prayers.  He was the life of their home.

7...a friend of ours in NY wrote to me to let me know that they know and Amish family who just lost their seven year old boy to swine flu.  Another prayer to think of.

8...Did I mention that Jared got a drum set?  This is a big deal you all need to know!  He only bangs when I'm in the poor head!  He's having a great time in the studio with the thing.  Lord bless that guy!  His practice might be at the expense of my ability to know a beat from a beat!

9...The bus inverter blew up...what's news??!!

10...I can't think of it right's there, but at the moment I'm writing a song at the same time, so I think I'll just have to let you all go!  I'll post pictures ASAP.

Blessings, love, and smiles to each and every one!
