Memorial Day

Aunt Tootsie is placing flowers on the grave marker for her parents, William Hugh and Ethel Dee Sloan Pennington. Wiygul Cemetery is holding their Memorial Day activities today (preaching at 11:00 under the pavilion), but there was a buzz of activity late yesterday afternoon as folks cleaned and decorated graves in preparation for today's service. By the way, Aunt Tootsie created that flower arrangement herself as she did for many other Penningtons in the cemetery.

This month is a busy month for cemeteries across Itawamba County as Decoration Day or Memorial Days are held.

Obviously Aunt Tootsie is a lady of many talents! My mouth is drooling recalling those coconut cakes she makes for a family get together and I have no doubt there will be one at meal time today. I just hope that the rains that rushed onto the North Texas scene late yesterday doesn't cause problems for your Memorial Days activities - we had 2 inches of welcome moisture in Benbrook.

Mona & Aunt Tootsie, welcome back to blogging! bettye
