Happy 4th!

Hope everyone has a fun filled fourth! Our plans are just to keep cool...been so hot lately. By the way, I just wanted to mention something along the lines of "where have I been that I didn't know this." I bought a paperback at a sale recently that I really enjoyed..."A Truth for a Truth" by Emilie Richards. It is a mystery series...a Ministry is Murder series as a matter of fact, since the main character is a minister's wife. But in reading the ads at the end of the book I found out it is called a "cozy" mystery. I had to look that up, never heard of it.....but this type of mystery is something I enjoy...not much violence or profanity. And many of the authors have background stories featuring cooking, knitting, art, etc. Anyway, I thought others might be interested in this tidbit....but you probably already knew it!

Andy Griffith sad news

We live about an hour from Mt. Airy, NC, Andy's birthplace. It is the town the fictional town of Mayberry was based on. We love "The Andy Griffith Show" and are saddened by the loss of Andy Griffith today. By the way, the actress who played Thelma Lou on the show, Betty Lynn, actually moved to Mt. Airy to live a few years ago.
