Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #175

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #175. Here we are approaching mid-August already. Folks used to always tell me as you age life goes faster. Do you think time is going faster because our days are filled with so much negative news and craziness? Our responsibilities may be more than the past therefore our occupied busy time is more. Sometimes I wonder if my squirrel friend Wilson is coming in and swinging from the clock arms messing up the time. Speaking of which, I can't believe how our youth are not being taught to tell time using a standard clock with the hour, minute, and seconds, arms.

While you are here, grab something good to eat and settle in with us. We appreciate it. Personally, I eat healthier during the weekdays and then let my hair down a bit if I choose to enjoy breakfast on Saturday. Some days Ms. Lucy might mix us up a good smoothie to start the day. It has to be a good one to sway me away from fresh eggs, bacon/sausage, biscuits and gravy. Hope you enjoy something that makes you happy.

When is my week not crazy? Maybe this is normal for many. I had to make a 24-hour trip to West Virginia to attend another funeral of a family member. A dear aunt who spent the last years of her life battling dementia earned her wings and departed this earth in beautiful fashion. My only morning in WV started just after sunrise and as always, the view from my family members deck was amazing. The fog resting in the valley between the hills was beautiful. It looks like a huge lake. God's paintings are beyond description.

Kentucky Disaster Relief - Last Chance

I want to thank everyone who donated to this cause to help the many Kentuckians in dire need of help and support.

Ms. Lucy and I, as well as HFS, will be dropping off our monetary donations on Sunday morning. for the Kentucky Relief efforts. Multiple trucks went out already headed that way. The folks have been surviving on donations to this point. The region we live in East TN has numerous former Kentuckians and many are from the flooded region. The stories and pictures of the devastation is terrible to put it mildly. Sadly, parts of the flooded region received more heavy rains in the last 72 hours.
