Patchwork

by donna smith ammons

I was excited to get “Dirty Dancing in the blu-ray version to watch on my bigscreen television. When the movie came out in 1987, Many Twin Cinema in Many was fairly new. Virginia and I talked the men into taking us to see the movie. Hubby-dear swears he and Eugene were the only two men in the theatre, among a bunch of ladies, who were swooning over Patrick Swayze. The movie was one of the best dance movies and the story was about a dancer at a resort, Johnny Castle and the young girl, Baby, whom he trained as a partner, on and off the dance floor. It was a typical 1960’s love story and all of the women were really involved in the story.

Patchwork

by donna smith ammons

We spent Christmas in Zachary the weekend after New Year’s with Davy, Kt, Riley Kate, Braeden and new baby, Darby. Hubby-dear and I looked like gypsies when we headed out of town early Saturday morning. My little HHR was loaded down with gifts, homemade cookies and creamy cheese potatoes and one small suitcase. I had my pillow and blanket in the front seat with me, along with the iPad, my book and purse. Needless to say it was a long, cramped trip.

The year is about to draw to a close. Goodbye 2014. I can’t say I am sorry to see it go. It has been a year filled with sadness, happiness, elation and good news.  The month of March—my birthday month—saw me going from extreme sadness to extreme happiness all in the same week

I have many fond memories of Christmas morning. I loved to run downstairs and see all the presents under the tree. Daddy
would already be downstairs having his first cup of coffee and patiently waiting for little brother and me to come racing
into the living room. The tree lights were on…..and Santa had arrived, as he always did!!
