There is a delicious breakfast served at the Bond Home each and every morning. First the coffee is out early and there is a demand for a good hot cup of coffee. Coffee is placed on a table in the dining room. You can easily solve the coffee satisfaction by pouring your own. Breakfast is served on a tray, for the ones who are handicapped.
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.
