CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace

The first really cold weather hit hard this past Saturday morning as I sat in a windy field to watch my grandson Cooper play on a little league soccer team. At 9:45 am the grass had “frozen” dew still, and with no trees to block the wind I had my first taste of winter weather, though still fall. Thinking ahead, I brought a lap throw, gloves, and a thick scarf. But there was one who needed it more than me, so I loaned it. Brrrrrrr! At home, my heat came on for the first time.

I was surprised on Sunday morning to see such a beautiful live flower arrangement on the pulpit at church! These dahlias & daisies were from Candy Gray’s yard; somehow they survived the cold night. (Unless Candy cut them the day before?) Here they are in the attached photo. Thank you Candy for providing weekly flowers for Rocky Hill Baptist Church!

This coming Saturday I’m planning to take my 9-year-old grandson to the Salvation Army building on King Street in Hendersonville. The Hendersonville Kennel Club is putting on a fun “Children’s Dog Show”, where children can show off their pet dog. Purebred or mixed is okay. There will be prizes awarded for categories such as “longest tail”, “most spots”, “best kisser”, etc. I hope to see you there! Cooper will be showing our sweet black & tan Pomeranian “Rockefeller”.

NOT AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

We “camped” on the banks of the Mississippi River Monday night. Tugboats, pushing up to 18 barges at a time) went by all night. We could observe them through the front window of our RV. The Mississippi River at this point is 10.93 feet below normal due to lack of rain upriver. The campground had benches all along the bank to sit on while watching the river traffic.


We were lucky to have sunshine and good weather for this entire trip. The West is terribly dry though. Nearly all rivers and streams were dry. When we were at Williams, AZ we learned that their only water source is the Redwall-Mauv aquifer in a layer of limestone nearly 3,000 feet below the surface and their well is not working well. At about $400 a foot drilling is very costly. Our campground has had to buy water from Flagstaff, AZ about 30 miles away. We were asked to be very careful of our water usage.


The trip was not without mechanical issues. We had a broken hitch that had to be replaced and then the leveler for the RV wouldn’t retract. We were lucky to have good people come to our rescue within minutes three times.


We are on the way home and will be in Pigeon Forge, on Wed and Thursday. My honey has never been to Dollywood so we are ending our trip with just a bit of whimsy. I am looking forward to getting home on Friday. My honey would like to live in the RV. He can do that as long as it’s in our driveway. Ha.
