Hello. I can't believe it's August already. I hope you kids are ready for your "big day." I can remember I couldn't wait to see all my friends I hadn't seen all summer. Here are some folks having birthdays in the next few days: JoEllen Milligan, Aug. 17; Jeff Duke, Aug. 18; Cathy Short Jones, Aug. 19; David Miller, Aug. 20; and Lucus Jones, Aug. 21.

Prayers are sent to the family of Jason Cross who passed away last week. He was a sweet guy and always had a smile. He will be sadly missed.

Happy 23rd anniversary wishes are sent to Tiffany and Josh Reagor last week.

A married couple in their 60s are visited by a fairy who grants them both one wish each.

"I want to travel around the world with my darling husband," says the wife. Two tickets for a luxury cruise magically appear in her hand.

Husband says, "Sorry but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me!" Fairy waves wand and husband becomes 92. Moral of story -- Men who are ungrateful should remember fairies are female.

I hope you have a good week.
