VBS AT CEDAR MOUNTAIN HOUSE Residents of the Cedar Mountain House enjoyed a one-day vacation bible school on June 20th, put on by Joy Murr and others from the Rocky Hill Baptist Church Missions Committee. David Brown, retired forest supervisor of the DuPont State Forest provided a hand-built butterfly house to go with the theme of "Signs of Butterfly's & Caterpillars". Two residents of the Cedar Mountain House created and took part in a play of this name. "Hope" and "Grace" were caterpillars that turned into butterflies, while another butterfly, "Faith", played by Joy Murr acted out the play for many delighted residents and other on-lookers. Residents enjoyed music, crafts and food during their VBS. The butterfly house can be viewed at the Cedar Mountain House. Many thanks to the Missions Committee of Rocky Hill baptist church.
VBS AT ROCKY HILL JULY 24TH The vacation bible school theme at Rocky Hill Baptist church this year is "Submerged" and is again lead by Patty Stahl and a host of volunteers. Kick-off will begin with a fun slip 'n slide at 5:00pm on Sunday July 24th, with a family hot dog supper following. Children should be dropped off by 6:30pm and picked up at 8:30pm the rest of the week through Thursday July 28th. Crafts, music, fun & games and learning are all a part of this popular vacation bible school for children. For more information you may call Pastor Leland Holland at the Church, at (828)862-5611 and leave your name & number for someone from the VBS team to get back in touch with you.
CHRISTINE'S CORNER Hubby and I will be attending both of the aforementioned family reunions this month. I am a descendant of Solomon Jones the "Road builder", and Joe is from the Heath family. Add to this the exciting Talent Night at the community center on July 11th and we have a very busy month.
With the high temps last week I decided to bring out the plastic kiddie pool for "Burley", my big golden retriever. He knew immediately it was for him, and he jumped right in before the pool was an inch deep. He rolled and played and jumped in and out and just had a great time. I was soaked head to toes. When the pool was about 4 inches deep I turned off the water and decided to wade in myself. I was trying to show our other smaller pups what fun it is. Sure enough I had Jack and Bo in before long, but little Jill quickly left the area. I found her curled up on Joe's lap later. Both dry.
At the end of the day I dumped the water evenly on the grass who thanked me for that. We need rain. And cooler temps. But we sure have it well here in Cedar Mountain after all, don't we?
On another note, I found just enough time to finish a painting I did on an old window from the Jackson Summerfield Heath ("Squire Heath") home which was built on Haskel Jones Road over 100 year's ago. It is no longer there, however my brother-in-law Doug had saved this window and so I painted a scene with a likeness of the old home and barn on it, and surprised Doug with it for his birthday.
Niece Jeanne Hayes gave Doug some old family photos, which Doug loves to get, and niece Patty Stahl made him a tall, delicious German Chocolate cake; one of Doug's favorites. He received many gifts for his 78th birthday. Doug's daughter Regina Pace presented her dad with a home-made coconut cream cake, the same recipe she used in a recent baking contest in which she won second place. I think Doug was well-celebrated.
Lastly, I was missing seeing the many lovely chickens that would be peeking near, but never IN, the road most days as I drove home. Seeing the owner on Sunday I asked her about them, and she said she is getting so many grandchildren she no longer had the time to devote to this large lot of layers. "They are living at a neighbor's house now." she replied. This neighbor lives far off the road so I may not see them anymore. They were really egg-stra special.
AROUND THE HOUSE
My sister, Kay from Florida, will be visiting this week and I am scratching my head for things to do that we haven’t already. My Niece and family will be at Lake Lure for the week of the 4th and we are planning to go tubing on the Davidson River. I hope we get more rain but not enough to make tubing dangerous. Last time I went the water was so shallow I kept bumping my rump on the rocks. It was a hoot though and we made several trips.
Someone asked about my Kallie Kat. She is fine but has pretty much decided she’d rather be an indoor cat again. She wouldn’t come and was left outside all night recently. Maybe a bad experience made her rethink her outside adventures.
