Made my day!


My white blood cell counts are improving and Pepper could come by today for a quick visit! He absolutely made my day!

I was deeply asleep when he got here apparently, but when a nurse came in and I looked over, I busted out crying- I was so happy to see him. Then he starts up the entertainment to keep me from crying. But it was happy crying!

We are definitely better together! #GODISGOOD I am so blessed with such an amazing, silly guy! I adore him!

Electric luxury from Room to Room Furniture


He didn’t want his picture taken but we LOVE the totally electric luxury of our new recliners from Room to Room furniture in Tupelo! Love it!

Since the horrendous crash of July 16, I have been sleeping in an old recliner. Now that it is going to be three to six more months of sleeping in the recliner, my parents bought us each a new one!

I went in to Room to Room and told the sales person that I was having shoulder surgery and will be living in a recliner for the next three to six months. He showed us the section of recliners, but went directly to this one and said if he were going to live in one for a while, this is the one he would get. And it was on half price sale! Can’t beat that!

Pep said he wanted to live in one too, so they bought one for him! (And  then bought two for their house!) We are #incrediblyblessed and sleeping pretty during a rough time! Room to Room has been awesome!

#MissMS2017 Holly Harrington


Also be on the lookout for Miss Dixie 2017 Holly Harrington at Saturday’s Miss Mississippi Scholarship Pageant.

Harrington is the great-granddaughter of legendary Coach Sam Henderson who worked at Cumberland High School for many years. She is the granddaughter of Webster County natives, Lou Henderson Harrington and Scott Harrington, both Cumberland High School graduates and Mantee residents.

Lou Harrington was a teacher for several years at Cumberland High School and Scott Harrington was a long time District 5 Supervisor.

Holly’s dad, Shane, was a Cumberland High School athletic standout who went on to play baseball for Delta State University.

I did not know of Holly’s Webster County connections until she was already in Vicksburg for the 2017 Miss Mississippi Pageant. Once they are there, the contestants are not allowed to have their phones. But I have included all of Holly’s profile information from the Miss Mississippi website to help us get to know her a little better.
