Sunday morning today came waaayyy to early since I was up and down what seemed like all night last night with Dolly, one of the 4-legged kids who had a stomach ache and kept needing to go outside. Finally after a huge drink of cold water about 3:30 she settled down and it took me until 4:30 to settle down and get to sleep.
Hubbie and I fixed potatoes in the pressure pot and corn on the stove to get some things done early for lunch today.
Church was good today from Mathew 5 verse 13 about being the "salt" of the earth. Dr. David does a wonderful job of bringing a message. Today was "back to school" Sunday and we offered up prayers for all the students and school personel in our congregation. Hubbie is on the left in the red shirt and g-son is standing in front of him in the blue shirt.

After church we had lunch of fried country steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn and green beans. Aa's family and #2 son were our guest today. #1 son's family went to a meeting and first soccer practice for g-son right after church.
Aa's family went home and hubbie and #2 son worked on his truck for a while then took the big ladder and went up to his house to nail a loose log back on the high side of his house. While they had the ladder out we mounted my birthday present over the sunroom doors.Thanks EL and BB !!!

I enjoyed a nice vitamin D break out in the sunshine of the afternoon.
Hubbie finished out the afternoon watching a Nascar race on TV.
Before we went out to do the chores tonight we gave Dolly a haircut and bath. Her hair is pretty long and maybe that is making her too hot at night and adding to her restlessness.
After we finished her we did chores then gleaned the garden .  More tomato canning in my near future.

And I went ahead and gathered these winter squash in and put them in the basement where they will probably be safer from bugs and worms that are invading our late garden vegetables.
D-in-love sent me this pic of g-daughter as she was so excited to have some ice cream at the Sweet Frog in town.
As we watched the news tonight things are really heating up in the tropics and could make the upcoming week very interesting !!!
Gaston is the only named hurricane and it looks like he will turn out to sea but the "invest " off the east coast and the tropical depression in the gulf  could spell trouble depending on their strength and track over the next week .

To continue the August decade pictures back in 1996  #1 son was beginning his freshman year of football at North Henderson high school. He was #72 all through high school.

I remember those "football frenzy" nights like they were yesterday. This team went undefeated this year as they were a very good group of  football players. Son started on both defense and offense. He played defensive end and on offense he was a guard. It is fun to look back and in this football lineup it is fun to see that the man who owns the business son works for now is also a member of this team.Bringing to mind for sure that we never know what the future holds for us or who is in our future.
Grateful to God for all the wonderful memories and for all the blessings of this day.
God Bless and Good Night.

Can't believe it is time for school to start. Summer sure went by quickly. The Farmer's Markets around here are blossoming with all the fresh vegetables. I have been enjoying all the fresh corn and freezing some of it for later. Love your birthday present; it looks very nice hanging over the sunroom door. Blessings
