with Melea Beshires
This past week, the Beshires and I had a wonderful visit with my brother, Jordan Smith, and friends. We picnicked in the city park. Our menu consisted of barbeque, baked beans, coleslaw, potato chips, watermelon and brownies. Otto enjoyed showing off his toy car and running along the fence where he could admire the soybeans.
On the following night, Otto and I continued the festivities with the group at my sister Sarah Smith’s home in Deanburg.
Hiram Ireton grilled steaks and vegetables, and Jordan Smith showed Otto how to swing in a hammock by the lake.
Linda baked an apple pie from the apples from our orchard, and it was delicious. Otto has always been an avid apple lover, and this was his first apple pie. It must have been a hit because all he could say was, “mmm, mmm, mmm!”
Mary Lynn Lambert shares some other noteworthy visits and upcoming Lambert family social events. Lambert writes, “Hubert and Joy (Lambert) Jeter were happy to have their son, Hubie, and his two sons home for a few days. Herbie lives in Bremerton, Wash. They flew home to celebrate birthdays. Hubie’s birthday is Aug. 2, and Hubert’s birthday is July 31.
Larry and Anita Lambert enjoyed a day with their grandson Harrison in Murfreesboro before he leaves for Cookeville to attend Tennessee Tech where he will be studying for an Engineer degree. After a big lunch at Red Lobster, they shopped and filled a big basket full of snacks for him to enjoy at the dorm.
Attention to all Lamberts! There will be a hamburger cookout on Saturday night at the home of Frankie Lambert. At the Sunday noon meal, a potluck will be held again at Frankie’s home. Bring your favorites dishes and your lawn chairs.”
Gail Mayfield shares with us a tie for August’s yard of the month. She writes, “This month recognition for attractive yards goes jointly to Alfred and Jonna Ewing, our newest neighbors, and Frankie and Mary Lynn Lambert for their work at the end of Lambert Lane. The two adjoining yards are complimentary; one has colorful flowers, and the other has a robust lawn. Thanks for a job well done in making our town pretty.”
I look forward to autumn in Silerton. I enjoy watching the leaves change and all the beautiful fall decorations. If you have fall traditions you would like to share I would love to hear about them.
