I guess by now everyone has heard about the man in the picture, Ted Williams. It is nice to hear a good story on the news once in a while. He does have a golden voice. I saw his mother on t.v. this morning. That’s her in the other picture. She said she was very proud of him since he has been clean from drugs for over two years and now has gone from homeless to a job and a house to live in.
There seems to be a lot of bad things happening lately as well. Two nights ago my daughters had all three vehicles ransacked while sitting outside their home. The thieves must have been looking for money or credit cards because nothing was taken. Not even the GPS system in their truck. The sheriff told them several of their neighbors had the same thing happen and a stolen credit card from one vehicle was used in Tennessee yesterday morning. It scares me because they live a good distance back from the road and someone had to be brave to come back their driveway.
A new Chick-fil-A is opening in a neighboring town and people have been camping outside the building for over two days to try to get a coupon good for a combo meal once a week for a year. One lady was 74 years old and sleeping in a tent in the parking lot!
Sears is closing in my town. It has been here for years and years. I hate to see it go. That store is about the oldest one in my area.
Food prices are supposed to really go up in the first six months of this year. Especially, cereals, meat, and dairy. I did an entire post on this on The Southern Lady Cooks blog the other day.
I am ready for spring already. I want to plant a garden this year in my backyard. I have several projects and flower beds I want to do in the spring. I need to order seeds.
This is the worst time of the year for me when it comes to eating. I just want to stay in the house and cook and stuff myself. I have to really watch or I will start gaining weight.
I hope your New Year is going well. Do you have lots of resolutions and things in mind for the months to come?
