Summer time is here. Planned to walk at 8:00 but temp still above 90′—so better to stay inside with AC. Thinking about Myra picking cotton in such heat and wearing long sleeves to protect from briers. She had no choice like you and I. Thankfully by book III, she could sit on her shady porch and with a nice breeze from her fan.

Saw a really good movie this afternoon, “Oceans Eight”It was a remake of a film I saw long ago but main characters were women instead of men.  Sandra Bullock was great as always.

Now to bed with my sweet kitty and a book by Mary Alice Monroe.  She makes me wish to spend the summer on Isle of Palms or my favorite Folly Beach.

Good night, sweet dreams and pleasant reading.

Shirley   PS   Comments are now usable –so would love to hear from you—if you only say “HI”

Can’t stop singing “Love Never Dies” after seeing the amazing performance at Peace Center. If you loved Phantom of the Opera, the finish to this will touch you deeply. Scenery & lighting like magic. How do they transport this large cast and all things needed from city to city. I will try to stop singing but the words are so dear.

Plans are to get back on book club circuit next month. I miss being with readers but a lazy month has been good for me.

Carly, the kitty, still keeps me entertained and provides sweet love.

If you are blessed enough to still have your father, the father of your children or grandchildren, make it a special day and show your love and appreciation. These times do not last forever. I sent in a tribute to my father for my newspaper column—things I wish I had said to him but never did. perhaps he still reads the Swainsboro Forest Blade.
Happy to have you to share my thoughts.
