Today after mass I stayed and helped sign up folks to have their family picture made for the new Church Directory. After that I had lunch and coffee at Serda downtown. Talked with several people from the church alter about activities coming up. A covey of Ladies went to Little Flower church this afternoon to play Bingo. I'll hang out at home and maybe slip over to Walmart for prescriptions later.

What could could possibly be better on a Saturday than to go to Callahans Irish Pub for a few brews? That's is where the Debster and I showed up after the rain to partake of a few Yeunglengs lagers. There wa a block party in the street, so parking was at a premium. Same thirsty bunch expressing their collective desire for alcoholic satisfaction. We stayed for the sandwiches and spoke to a few acquaintances.

Wednesday the 20th was Senior Lunch at the church. We had a guest speaker, Mike Box, who discussed the importance of having a Will and making sure it was not complicated or confusing. Every will should have an executor to ascertain that bills are paid and define a clear inheritance.  If a will leaves a significant amount of property, the will should be probated by law within 12 to 18 months.Father Saucier was in attendance and a thank you letter was read from him for his tenth anniversary ordination party and gift from the Knights, Seniors and Ladies Auxiliary.

The Chickasaw Garden Club took the Senior Bus to Fairhope today to visit the Town's Rose Garden down at the wharf. There were beautiful specimens and we found out that pretty girls get their pictures taken among the roses.

After church this morning we went to Providence Hospital to see Horrace Allen who has been there a week with colonic bleeding. He seemed in pretty good spitits as he ate a bowl of okra. Bonnie was there taking good care of him so we wished them well and gave them get well regards from the Kiwanis. On the way back we stopped for lunch at Macaroni Grill and enjoyed some of their wonderful grilled salmon. It was extremely hot most of the day, so we have been at home, inside, relaxing with the AC.
