Blast from the Past

Wow! I have no idea when this was taken? It was sent to me by my cousin, Tracy. My best guess would be 5th or 6th grade for me, and 3rd or 4th grade for Jeremy. But we have both outgrown mom since then! It is hard to remember a time we were shorter than Betty. She is 5’2″ or 3″. I wish I had that much hair! Chemo has worked on the hairdoo! I have thick hair in some places and thin in others. CRAZINESS! #TBT

Monday mood

I am at chemo in Starkville, about to get the day started. Matlock is blaring on the neighbor’s television. It is almost as bad as Hee Haw!!! (BTW, RFD-TV has taken Hee Haw off the air on Sunday nights! Yay for me, but Pepper is inconsolable! 😂🤣)

Today is a “short” day, so I will be here just three hours, instead of six. I am not quite awake just yet, but I can tell y’all, ear phones and a white noise app are blessings straight from God!

No more Hee Haw, earphones AND a white noise app, just try to tell me God is not looking out for me!

Unfortunately, Pepper has decided to launch his own personal episode of Her Haw each week to keep the tradition alive…LORD HELP US! 🤪



to two of my favorite people! I think they first saw each other in “downtown” Stewart. Betty and assorted sisters were getting on the bus, while JB and assorted brothers/cousins were at the gas station that was next door to Jones’ Grocery store, back in the day. Dad asked around and got the name of the wrong sister. He uncovered her address and went to the house. He initially asked for Sherry, but when she came to the door, he said that she wasn’t the girl he was looking for. Somehow, he finally asked for the right sister, and he and Betty have been inseparable ever since. I need to ask how he proposed. I will work on that!
