Last week was a special week for me. Good things happened that I will cherish forever and will bring joy to me in my remembrances.
The bright light in the week was my granddaughter Molly’s wedding. The wedding was glorious and enjoyed by all. The bride was beautiful, all the people in the wedding were beautiful, the church was beautiful, the reception was fantastic, and even the weather was perfect. The only glitch happened when the bride and groom jumped in the get-away car which was Bob Mc’s 1954 remodeled Chevrolet pickup and the groom couldn’t drive a stick shift.
Another thing that happened last week was that Ira and I enjoyed having supper with Mike Huckabee on Wednesday night at my son’s house. Huckabee is basically a Baptist preacher on whom God has his finger. One and a half years ago he ran for president. He was governor of Arkansas from 1996 to 2006. Now he has an entertaining television show on Fox News several times a week, getting exposure to the world as to what kind of person he really is. The only dark spot in the week was my daughter and also one of my son-in-laws were ill. (Please, I need you to remember them in your prayers as I am in mine.)
At the magnificent Marshall County Historical Museum where I have the privilege of working, good things are happening. We are preparing for an estate sale during Pilgrimage. We are asking you to bring your treasures of which you want to dispose and let us sell them at a silent auction with the proceeds going to the tax deductible museum. Also, we are planning two history tours of the county to follow Van Dorn’s Raid and the War Plain from Tennessee to the Tallahatchie River. The first will be in May and the second in September when the weather isn’t so hot.
At the museum a lot of people’s favorite thing is the wonderful photos of the town, county and school pictures of the past. We call it the Hall of Fame because everybody is on the wall; rich, famous, short and tall.
Something new at the museum to sell in our Mississippi Shop is some new postcards of the Methodist, Presbyterian and Episcopal Churches that are new and absolute works of art done by Jim Dunworth.
The museum is open five days a week and on Saturday by appointment. Come in and see us.
