Hot Dog Sale

The Methodist Church held a hot dog sale at noon yesterday. It may not sound very exciting, but it's one more opportunity to get out and visit with the neighbors.

This week, like so many others, has been full of fun activities. Sunday evening Lou Ann & I went to the Jolly Roger to listen to local guitarist Martin Garrish & friends. Monday we babysat Lachlan and went out for a stroll and visiting. Visiting is almost a lost art in today's society, but you might want to try it. It is quite rewarding.

Tuesday night Amy & I both had a ghost and history walk. Last night we went with cousin Blanche to the Ocrafolk Opry at Deepwater Theater. The music and storytelling were simply fabulous.

This evening Lou Ann & I have been invited to have dinner with the park volunteers at the lighthouse keeper's quarters. It's been years since I've been in the house (it was built in 1823). Tomorrow night I will have another ghost & history walk, and Lou Ann will be at a rental cottage for an evening of ghost tales.

Maybe we'll stay home on Saturday and play cribbage!
