Goodness, the last couple of days have been so hot, especially when you are in town walking on that concrete. At least out here in the country, you can stand under a tree in the shade. Can you tell I have been inside just way too long?
It was wonderful to be able to worship in the church Sunday even with the guidelines of social distancing. The pastor was great and even made a joke. He asked a couple sitting at the very front of the pews how they liked being that close to the front since they always sit in the back. Everyone had a good giggle about that.
Our country is still far from being back to normal, but I am sure that many people are glad we are taking precautions. One normal activity that I like is still on hold, the Sonshine Sisters and dominoes. We decided to wait until June to resume our fun. I really think we are all having withdrawals being separated for such a long time. The invitation still stands for others to come and join us.
The Grimes VFW Post 4006 and Auxiliary met on Thursday to complete requirements for the upcoming 2020-2021 year. Several of the Auxiliary were installed by past commander Carl Dry. When we completed our business, we left so that the Post side could conduct their election process. Thanks to everyone who came to support our group.
Sandwiches at the fire station are back on the schedule for June and the monthly business meeting will resume on June 1 at 7 p.m. at the station. If you are interested in becoming a member, please feel free to come and join our volunteer group. Being a firefighter is not required and we can always use more auxiliary members.
The Texas Pickers will also be open June 6. Since they have had to be closed, this is a good time to go and shop.
The actual school classes are coming to an end and I know one kiddo that is very happy and that would be Chucky. He is not too fond of this form of lessons, especially when he stays at Gingi Boot Camp. I added time to his working because he was playing on his phone in the bathroom. I sure did. You should have seen that look I got!
On June 5 another of my grandchildren will be a teenager when Bean celebrates his birthday. I cannot believe this should be happening. He is still a little guy to me!
