Newsletter Vol 36 / Issue 10

Greetings I’m thankful that we’re entering into the holiday season. I love fall weather. You just don’t sweat as much. As far as the actual holidays, I’m not a big fan of Halloween. Except my wife always buys lots of candy and we have fewer Trick or Treaters every year. BTW, picture of the 2021

Newsletter Vol 36 / Issue 09

Greetings For the “What I’m Thankful For” series, I’m going to re-plow some old ground. I think one of the first things I wrote about was good friends- especially those in the wood club. During the past several weeks I’ve come to realize how special it is to work with friends of like mind. Several

Greetings Thanks to Pete Miller for sending me these two points having to do with persistence (from Charles Stanley’s website.) I’m going to use them for my “What I’m Thankful For“ series. Learn the difference between being a failure and experiencing failure in life. — You’ve all heard of the all-purpose cleaner Formula 409. It’s

Greetings Have you ever heard the phrase “And this too shall pass”? Well, that phrase is what I’m thankful for this month. It seems we’ve been going through more than our share of aches, pains, and doctor visits lately. So, we fall back on “This too shall pass.” Like Tennessee weather, if you don’t like

Greetings As you read this you will note that it’s late. I didn’t realize 3rd Tuesday was early this month (as early as it can possibly be – the 15th.) So I’m sitting here on Thursday the 10th composing a newsletter. I don’t know if I included a “What I’m Thankful For” item last month,

Newsletter Vol 36 / Issue 05

Greetings This newsletter creeped up on me. First it was more than two weeks away and now it’s past due. If time flies when you’re having fun, I must be having a hilarious time. My monthly “What I’m Thankful For” item is a no brainer – Friends. Some of my favorite friends are a direct

Greetings If you read the local newspapers, you all probably know I’ve been a little more than occupied. I’m filing city politics under “This too shall pass.” I’m also practicing being silent. I can already be silent in seven different languages! As to my “What I’m Thankful For” resolution, I’m thankful for all I learned

Greetings We’re a little closer to getting back to a “normal” meeting. Remember “Normal”? Anyhow, this month will be a Zoom meeting, but it will originate from H111 at UTSI. As to my “What I’m Thankful For” resolution, I’m thankful for SPRING! Our daffodils are in their “glory” stage. Day lilies and hostas are not

Greetings I think last month’s Zoom meeting was a success. Several of you joined in and it was good to see those that attended. Some commented that they liked the Zoom format. They didn’t have to get out and travel on a cold, dark night. Some were able to show large pieces they had made

Greetings December has been a trying month for the Gulley family. I tested positive for COVID-19 a couple days before Christmas. Later my daughter and grandson also succumbed. Christmas was postponed and everyone was in quarantine. We’re finally having Christmas tonight (Jan 12th.) But the good news is, everyone survived! Even better good new, 2020
