Congrats to Stephen McDonald and Amie Cherrington who were married in Pickerington on Saturday, August 5th.

Congrats to my Reds buddy, Garrett Browning, who wed Jordan Downey in Destin, Florida.

I misspelled Denise and Jim Badgleys name and called them Batchly! Sorry. Old womans syndrome hit me!

Saw on Facebook that Lynn Denney has a new granddaughter who weighed nine pounds and two ounces!

Looks like Triple Crown is coming to Wellston - no more kids parties in Chillicothe now!

Mick-eau de skunk doesnt smell good on you! I hear you bought all the tomato juice in town! Thats what happens when you try to help Dewey find his dipstick!

Get well wishes to Peggy King who had surgery to remove a hernia and her appendix. John Buzz Stephenson had his appendix out also!

Shirley Wyant having health problem and needs your prayers.

Jane Marietta has to have cancer surgery and four weeks of radiation. Prayers needed.

Get well wishes to Janet Brown who had a hospital stay. Sandy Stevens Bobo had a hospital stay.

One radiation treatment and Marsha Baisdens lump is much smaller - keep praying for this wonderful woman.

I read on Facebook that Noah Cox of Athens was killed in a farming accident this summer. His friend showed his steer at the Athens County Fair as well as showing his own. The boy got Grand Champion Steer and it went for $65,000! The boy showing the steers got second and his went for $10,000! Such a touching story of human kindness.

Talked to an exterminator and he told me spiders and bees are coming out more than a month early, and the ants are ridiculous.

Thoughts to ponder I do not snore - I just dream I am a motorcycle!

Another thought Give us the same health care as Congress or give Congress the same health care they give us! And do away with the donut hole where meds cost more after $3,000! My Xarolta costs $465 for three months and my Zedia cost $376 for three months.

Another thought I really dont mind getting older, but my body is taking it badly.
