…and what a dinner it was…This lovely lady “Miss Sue” treated hubby and me and Jackie and Lou to dinner Saturday night. Sue and Jim are extraordinary hosts and we enjoyed every minute of the pampering…
This is what we had…fried cornbread, grilled pork tenderloin with fresh mushrooms and a beautiful sauce, grilled chicken tenderloins, fresh tomatoes, onions, crisp lettuce and those lovely lima beans and in the center is a bowl of beautiful beets…and to top it all off…
Miss Sue is a long time interior designer here…I got to see her home workroom…maybe she’ll let me come back to take photos and show all of you!!!
Leave Miss Sue a comment if you’d like to see her cottage or some of her work!!! Hint…she has an inside swing!!!

Huh…Tiffany said this to Michael and me last night…“we’ve already won”, she wasn’t talking about the winning number
of votes but the value of running this campaign in our great nation!!!
Mr. Randy Smith of Jackson, TN. is running for the Republican nomination to run
as their candidate for the eighth Congressional District of Tennessee.
and what a chef…here’s what we had to eat after talking to Randy and Tiffany and some of their children…
sauce was a lovely light lemony concoction…served with pasta…it was divine!!!
in Chicago…(not in TN). I love that they can display something that has a lovely family history.
Family and the love of family is such an important characteristic for a political candidate…
Randy told me about his children with a beaming face and a giggle that only a Grandad can carry off.
Yes, he is the grandfather of Connor, who is one year old. Connor’s Dad is Randy’s oldest son Dion.
Sydney is Randy’s adult daughter and …
darling little lady!!!
is not even election day!!! You’ve won the love and respect of a great number
of people, including your family, in the eighth congressional district. You won our hearts and respect the first time you
whipped that tattered copy of the Constitution out of your breast pocket…and it wasn’t a political ploy…because we know
that you believe in that document and honor all of the people who have fought so diligently to preserve it.
and where you stand. YOU’VE WON because you devoted four years during Desert Storm in the US Navy serving
aviation ordnance for the A-6.
like so many heroes do…
You’ve weathered this tough campaign at your own expense. You and Tiffany have conducted the most respectful campaign
of all the candidates. My compliments to the two of you for not allowing negativity to taint your campaign.
Dr. Ron Kirkland
Mr. Steve Fincher
Dr. George Flinn
I have met and talked to each of these men several times recently and I suspect
that each one of them have somewhat similar stories to Randy…similar but different. We have four very good candidates,
four very good men…not perfect men…by uniting we can do anything in the name of Jesus Christ is my
prayer for each one of you!!! Good luck Randy and all of the opponents. Each one of you are winners!!!
Now I just want to share some more of my photos…as you can see, I had a blast with this family!!! Maybe I should call these the “Out takes”…
Guess which one was the most “challenging”???

This is Mr. Zach Wamp (right), who is running for Governor of Tennessee…
he is shaking the hand of a nice gentleman who is my newest buddy…
and shall remain nameless ;-)… I do thank him for buying my breakfast!!!
No, better not!!!
was found on the premise of Christianity and to remain what we are
we should remain a Christian country!!! Got my vote right there!!!
of the restaurant is The Cozy Kitchen in Dyersburg, TN…
ok…I’ll cover that on my next post…
Tennessee has largely been left behind in the growth of industry and is suffering.
I’ve blogged about my hubby working in a city 65 miles from our home, my son is
also working in that town and my daughter and son-in-law have moved to Jackson because
of their jobs. It is so sad to see our home grown and educated population leave here. We have
a great University of Tennessee campus within 15 miles of home and it is called a weekly college because
all of the students go “home” on weekends…
they shared some stories about the school with us…
“…want me to wave like Gomer Pyle?” …wouldn’t you know just as I snapped …
This is Mr. Jeff Jones, he is the Dyer County Highway Department superintendent
…p.s. he was so much fun to meet!!! Gotta love small town life and all of it’s inhabitants!!!
