In honor or this momentous occasion, I decided to post. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but with all of my exciting agricultural pursuits, I haven’t spent much time blogging. Here’s a pic of the chocolate cake I ate in Chicago 2 weeks ago. It was delicious. Nuff said.

Saturday night I treated myself to a night out! My friend, Brenda Rose, taught a painting class at our GA Museum of Agriculture. We brought our favorite beverage, and she supplied everything we needed to paint a canvas! Her sunflower painting was our inspiration, and 11 of us left with 11 different renditions of her painting. it was a great night out and I can’t wait to go again on March 18th!

As president of the Tifton Twentieth Century Library Club, I get many opportunities to meet famous folks…..well, not MANY opportunities….OK, so I get a few opportunities to meet famous people. Last Saturday night while attending the GA Federation of Woman’s Clubs Institute in Athens, GA, I got to meet former UGA football coach, Vince Dooley. Of course, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to mention that I was a student at Penn State in 1982….the year Penn State beat UGA for the National College Football Championship….and Coach Dooley was gracious to say he meets a few of “those folks” every now and then, but doesn’t mind because JoePA is such a great guy. Coach Dooley is now a gardener, among many other attributes, and I purchased his gardening book with a forward by one of my former Horticulture professors, Dr. Michael Dirr. Coach Dooley is a wonderful speaker, and his wife, Barbara, is also delightful. It was a wonderful evening!

I put them on, and did a few dance steps on the dining room floor.
Then I got out the ballet shoes, and tried to stand on my toes…..I don’t remember hurting this much when I was younger….
I don’t think my knitting has anything to worry about….it won’t be replaced by a dancing hobby anytime soon. Think I will bring them out again in another 30 years…..

Fun with my spinning friends at Alligator Point, Florida! We enjoyed the bay, kayaking, spinning, knitting, dyeing yarn, dyeing t-shirts and scarves. I’m ready to go back!

IN my other life, I’m president of a club in Tifton – the Tifton Twentieth Century Library Club! I serve a great group of ladies who meet once a month and do various civic projects that benefit our city, state, nation and world. We are a member of the Ga Federation of Women’s Clubs and at our recent state convention held at Jekyll Island, we learned that we won a special state award for our work in raising $5000 to benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Macon, GA. We held a bunco/bridge tournament that involved many in our community and was a huge success. Here we are receiving our certificate and silver platter!
Pictured above are Terri Stumpe, 2nd District Presiden; Debbie Thompson, treasurer of our club;me; Shirene Daniell, member of our club and state president elect; and Genie McCook, member of our club and 2010 Convention Co-chairman.
