There is music - wonderful, beautiful music - coming to us from Covenant Presbyterian Church in Jackson. Recently, the men's choir visited us at the Bond Home for a fantastic concert. Nowhere have I ever heard more beautiful singing.
The TV and newspapers bring us a lot of news, but, for the most part, it is devastating – shootings, murder, fire in apartments, explosions on the highway and all kinds of drug problems – just to name a few. However, seldom do they report good news. I do wish that some day the TV might have a two minute pause for good news three times a week.
After playing bridge for an hour, the four of us remained seated to relax for a few minutes. We began to chat about everything. One lady started a conversation about the poor language and grammar skills so many people use. In many cases it is the poor language spoken at home during childhood.
I wish you could have been present at the Bond Home for lunch on June 2. It was a special day and lunch was served a bit early. Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler and her husband Jim were not only present, but were there to serve us our lunch. No doubt, they were the best looking serving staff couple I have ever seen.
It was Friday the 13th. How often does that occur during the year? Friday the 13th was mentioned on the early morning radio program or I would not have realized that this was the day that is filled with superstition for so many people.
The lady who sits at the table next to me in the dining room will be celebrating her 100th birthday on June 29, 2018. This lady is Irene Adams, a remarkable person. Her movement, as she walks, is comparable to a much younger person. No one would ever guess that she was approaching the century mark. All guesses might place her in her mid-70s.
