First the deadly tornadoes that cut a swatch through many of our southern states and then the wedding of the century.
The death toll from the tornadoes is expected to reach over 400. This brought back memories for me of the year that my daughter was in the first grade. I was at home with my son who at that time was 3 years old. It was 12:30 and As the World Turns was on TV. The program was interrupted to give a tornado warning for my little town. I foolishly stood at my back door watching the tornado coming. It went down a street on the east side of town and leveled the houses on the right side of the block. Nothing to compare with the devastation of this week’s tornadoes but it has remained fresh in my mind all these many years. I was talking to my daughter and she remembered this. The tornado struck just a few blocks from her grade school. She remembers the teacher having them get under their desks as it was storming. My thoughts and prayers are with all of those who lost loved ones and property.
I watched bits and pieces of the wedding. It was lovely. I thought how very much William looks like his mother and how much I didn’t like looking at Camilla and Charles. I loved the image of the little girl with her face all scrunched up and holding her hands over her ears. That was priceless. I hope this is a forever, till death do us part marriage. They have had a few years practice so they should be able to make it. I pray that they do.
I think I am going out to check out Bergner’s this morning and see what they have on sale. I am needing some new summer tops. I looked in Kohl’s the other day. I couldn’t believe how ugly the summer tops are. I think I will stick to t’s.
I hope you are all having a good weekend. Stay safe and be happy!
