Last Friday was a jump-and-stomp-and-shout dance day. More gentlemen than ladies, I think. Everyone raved about the music. We ate barbecue ribs with the works. Any of you who haven’t dined with us are missing the best lunch in town. Yearly membership, for those ancient enough to be 60 or over, is only $1.25. Yep, no misprint, $1.25. Membership gives you the opportunity to buy lunch for $3.25. Come have lunch at noon Monday, Thursday and Friday. Now that was not an advertisement, but an invitation. You all know an invitation means you have to come or be rude, like your momma always tried to teach you.

I forgot to mention last week that our own dear Freddie had a birthday. If you have not met him, you are missing a rare treat! I especially like the blessing he does before lunch. His voice rings clear as he asks God to keep our police and service men out of harm’s way and thanks him for our many blessings. Amen to both of those.

We are getting ready for our next two events: April 5 is the Ladies High Tea and April 12 the Spring Sale. Plans are ramping up and we squeal with excitement. The volunteers already have racks and racks of spring clothing and various items ready for sale. More are added each day. We are doing this sale differently, so you will have to come see on that Saturday.

The Ladies Tea, for all ages, will be quite an extravaganza with the beautiful flower arrangements for sale gracing the tables. A photographer will capture this moment in time. We’ll even have mink garments and vintage hats for y’all to gussy up your appearance. The baked goods are too heavenly for mere words. Now hear this clearly — mark the above dates on your calendar. Right now!
