50/50 winner spends money on food for Feed Nova Scotia
There’s more sadness in our communities. Much sympathy goes out to Robert Tuttle and family on the passing of wife and mother, Florence, Pugwash Jct. on May 26; to wife and family of Bill Brown, Amherst, who passed away on May 24; to family and friends of Sherman Black, Amherst, who passed away on May 25; and to Jim Mont, Rockley, and all family members on the passing of wife and mother, Madeline, on May 28. Thinking of you all at these sad times.
On a cheerier note, read where Kim Nix, who won the firemen’s 50/50 draw May 17, spent the money on food for Feed Nova Scotia. What a kind and thoughtful gesture on your part. Bless you, Kim.
Probably some good parenting in there someplace.
Shirley White spent the long weekend with Charlene, Coady, Aidan and Kelsey in St. John, N.B. She went back with Charlene, who was down for her late grandfather, Ron White’s Committal Service. Ronalda and Barry Smith drove up and brought Shirley home. Visitors with Shirley this week were Nancy and Ian Mundle; and Brian Searstone, Northport. Brian and wife are just home from Florida.
Just realized I forgot birthday greetings in last week’s notes, including my own. Trust all you Geminis will have or have had a great day. For the upcoming week, greetings go out to Jane Duynisveld, Wallace, Fred Speth, Bridgewater; Rev. Jack Briggins, Pugwash Jct., Ken Jupp, N. Wallace; Gilbert Levy, New Glasgow; Henry Smith, Truro; Jill Mundle, Fountain Road; Josh Pollard, Stan Brown and Kenny Smith, Pugwash.
Callers with Mary Doyle this week include Peggy Allen, Joyce Bennett, Paul Fahey, and Bruce Gullon, Wallace. Bruce had supper with Mary on Friday.
Early last Monday, my household was a busy one, with all my family and some friends coming to take out my old living room window, and to install the new one. Staging to be picked up, as well as the new window. Much smaller window, so a lot of adjustments had to be made. Saws and hammers went all day. Had lots of folks stop by; I think some thought it was the new drive-thru for Tim’s. Everyone had a job. Even had to nab a neighbour who was walking his dog to help hold the window as it was coming out. Some planted flowers; others made coffee; Dana and Kev brought two pizzas for lunch.
I made a big pot of spaghetti for supper, along with rhubarb pudding. Lots of dishwashers. It was a fantastic day and lots and lots of laughs.
Am I Blessed? Yes, so many times over. Amen!
Lots of regular visitors this week and some new ones; those being Gordon Myers, Londonderry; Sheila Verge and Rod Lusby, Amherst; Cheryl Mattinson, Birchwood; Ron Trenholm, Bill and Diana MacKay, Rockley.
Speaking of which, Bill and Diana hosted a delicious Chinese Supper on Friday and I was invited, along with Ron Trenholm. Kind of made me tearyeyed to think that would be the last meal I would ever eat in my parent’s homestead. Bill and Diana are moving to Amherst this week, and I wish them all the best in their new Senior’s Apt.
Prayers, please, for all our sick and shut-in friends and neighbours this week.
Thought for the week: “When you hold grudges, your hands aren’t free to catch Blessings.”
