Good Luck Today

I spent the morning getting my credit card straightened out and then went to the Canney Fork Electric Co-op meeting.  They serve a lunch from 12 to 1:30 and have live entertainment from 12:30 to 2.  Today they had The Southern Fashion I guess was their names.  There were five young men (boys) who played and sang blue grass music.  They were very good.  We got there about 1:30.  Then at 2 they have the business meeting and then the drawing for the door prizes.  We all got llil balm, rubber spatula, and a back scratcher and there were 60 door prizes – everywhere from potted mums to $200 worth of free electricity.  I never win any thing at these drawing.  I have alway said if there were two names in the hat and my name was one of them, they would draw the other guy.  Well today they drew my name.  I must have signed my name Carol Ruth Petts so when they called Carol Ruth Pitts I said it couldn’t be me because I never put my middle name down and I got all flustered but Norman got me up and I won an Auto Detailing Gift Pack.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
