I know, don't faint! A new post before Friday! I had a lovely weekend and just had to share some of the highlights!!!
Starting out on Friday at noon my daughter Carrie came by with lunch from Sonic! Nancy was very very happy! But she drank way to much Route 44 peach tea and by evening was way hi- per!! With a captial H.
That evening the girls put the two wheelchairs in the two cars and away we went.
Karen wanted to see something at a store over at Zona Rosa shopping mall! It is a good ways from where I live. When we got there, this mall has a out of doors open courtyard for tons of people to hold concerts.
They were having one, that evening with the "Elders" a Irish group. They were so much fun! The girls parked me and took Nancy and off they went while I enjoyed the music.
On Sunday afternoon Carrie and I went to a reception for our former pharmacist Maurice Branum. He celebrated his 80Th birthday in March. Mr.Branum opened the drug store in 1954 the same year my folks moved over here.
He owned the store until 1992.
I think the whole town turned out to say "Hello" to him.
His wife was killed in a car accident in 1964. My Mother stayed with their girls for a couple of years and helped take care of them. Carrie and I sure enjoyed saying "Hi" to so many people we know. There was so much food you just would not believe it! It was like a big Fourth of July town picnic. I told Carrie I didn't get any cake which I am not suppose to have any way and she said,"That's the only thing you didn't have!!!
Mr. Branum is one of the most kind, helpful,and gentle person you would ever want to know.
When I was a teenager I would go there after school for a coke or ice cream. It was the local hangout for the school kids.
