The birthday party scheduled for August the 8th was a huge success. It went ahead as scheduled; and I believe Addyson was pleased as well as her friends and guest. The traveled, by walking and wading in the creek, and even got out of sight far from the rest of us. These were city girls.
The “Plus” in the title is that just this past Saturday we had another Birthday Party down at the swimming hole. Our granddaughter Caitlyn turned 17 and had several of her friends from church celebrate with her. These were older and more aggressive youth, and they had much fun too.
No! I did not get in the creek either time, though due to the heat along with the humidity it might have seemed like a good idea.
It is always good to get together with family and friends.
And that is the way it is on the banks of Flat Creek.
Today is a special Birthday party for a special granddaughter. She is planning on having it down at our family swimming hole; the Whirl Hole. That could be a little in doubt now though, due to some rain.
I went down to mow, because it has been over a month since it was mowed. When I got started mowing it started sprinkling and as I mowed it came down progressively harder. I was soaked when I got to the house.
I kept mowing until I got a fairly large enough space for a party, and access to the Creek for swimming.
We have not heard for our daughter Monica; if it is still a go. Addyson will surely be disappointed if it is rained out for the Creek.
Even if it is raining I am sure she will enjoy the meal at Flat Creek in Republic.
Happy Birthday to Addyson Worley 14 years old.
Here we are in the first full week of August. The usual August is hot, muggy and dry, many years drought conditions.
This first week, and into the next we have had fairly cool temps with some exceptions,and rain. Up until a few minutes ago we have been getting rain all day. Thank the LORD, our Creator and Savior for giving this moisture for crops, hayfields, and yards.
Now let us be grateful for every day. The rain is a blessing and so is the sunshine; even when it is hot and muggy.
That is how it is on the banks of Flat Creek today,
