Joan Bunting7.9.2015HolidaysHolidays, holidays, holidays. You anticipate the holidays, get all excited about them, and before you know, they come and they’re gone. Well the Fourth of July just past. The picnics, the cook-outs, the family reunions. Last but not least – the fireworks.My sister Doris invited me to join her Saturday to go to her oldest son’s house in Mount Airy.My oldest daughter had planned on having a gathering at her home in Collingdale Saturday as well. The weather forecasters announced rain on Saturday so my daughter had her cook-in on Friday. It was lots of fun with some of my grandkids and great-grandkids.The next day (Saturday) when it was supposed to rain, we (my sister Doris and I) were picked up by her son Albert, whom I hadn’t seen in years and were driven to Mount Airy. It’s very beautiful there and their house is awesome.Oh, I forgot, her youngest son, Richard, was with us and I also got to see one of Doris’sdaughters – Linda – whom I hadn’t seen in years.We had a great time and guess what? It hardly rained at all. Which allowed my sister and I to enjoy Friday and Saturday.Beware, our next holiday will be here and gone before you know it. Labor Day.Hattie Lee Ellerbe6.18.2015I Love The SummerEven though it is raining today, it is a good day. It is almost the first day of summerand I am looking forward to it. I love the summer time. I am looking forward to allthe fun time activities summertime brings.Cookouts are one of my favorites. You see people you haven’t seen since lastsummer. The conversation and the food in a word "delightful."The days are longer and you seem to do more fun things. It’s as if you have moretime to really appreciate family and friends. Most of my family prefer winter andfall...give me the good old summertime.
Loretta Dotson6.23.2016The Real Philly FanaticI was once a sports fanatic. Thank God I am now a nicer person. If you didn’t like myteam or you disagreed with me concerning a player or a score, look out. I continue tolove all my home teams, the good the bad and the terrible. If you didn’t like mychoices, too bad. I was a smoking hot mess. Now often many, many years of self-training, I am able to listen to others and not let my train run off the track. I mightsmile and say "You don’t say," then change the subject. I am now a nice, calm, sports loving person with age I have mellowed. I hope.
