Boy, what a mess! For the last four days we have been painting in our house, which has really needed it for a long time. The problem is, even after moving things to the middle of the room, the rooms are so small it is hard to move around. And then, we have to move everything back! Major color changes in several rooms, so of course, we are taking up the carpet in the living room and den! After getting part of it up, we found termite damage in the living room floor that was not noticed when we bought the house. We've got to get a few floor boards replaced before we can put new carpet back down! If I don't get the house back in livable shape soon, I'll just go crazy!

We have recently joined the Greenville Textile Heritage Society Chorale. We are having fun singing with other folks our age or older who remember the mill villages and worked in the mills here in Greenville. Not to my surprise, there is a large number of Parker High alumni in the chorale. And one is also a Carson-Newman grad! We are preparing a performance for Oct. 3rd during Textile Heritage Week. We will be singing at the Upcountry History Museum. Our theme is "A Sentimental Journey," so we will be doing a sort of hit parade of the 1940's with a special tribute to our WWII vets. Its going to be good! Just wish we could get some more women to join the chorale. Our men tend to overpower the ladies! We could use about ten more sopranos and five more altos to really balance the group. We are rehearsing Thursday evenings at Sans Souci Baptist Church.
The Chorale was formed in March 2010 under the direction of Mrs. Judy Edwards and is accompanied by Mr. Randy Blackburn. The Chorale made their debut performance at the God and Country Rally held on June 27, 2010 at the Legacy Charter School Parker Auditorium.

I am having a great day today. I have been a member of the Gideons for roughly six weeks and have now been given twenty new PWT's to distribute. That's personal worker's testaments for those of you who don't know. I have given out three so far this morning in my comings and goings. I'm having lots of fun doing God's work!
