“HE’S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS”is the one I have been singing on & off in my head or loud & proud for my children a LOT lately. There is obviously the connection of hands (I assure you his are clean) but there is something so reassuring in the promise that these lyrics hold.
It all started innocently enough, with a phone call from one of the production assistants from our “Delta Darlings” Reality TV Pilot. Jason was helping staff extras for a Western that was being filmed in Greenwood, Mississippi. He knew that Daddy’s rugged good looks, fabulous hair & famous beard would be sure to steal the show… (in TRUTH, I am sure that at least 50 more people actually watched this movie just to see THE Condor!) Although flattered, Daddy was a little ambivalent about this idea… Mom & I quickly persuaded him that he HAD to do it so, on this day - 5 years ago… Daddy & I set forth to Greenwood!
I have a NEW friend. This NEW friend & her husband & her children stopped by unexpectedly the other night to bring us homemade cookies. I highlight NEW because I like for my friends to have known me for at least a good 6 months (that way they have time to know & Come to Love all of my admirable & wonderful qualities) before they are ushered into the TRAIN WRECK that is my HOUSE!
Those of you who know me ~ already know that I can be a bit of a Ding Dong but for those of you who don’t know me personally or aren’t familiar with our annual Ding Dong Days festival, this is quite THE Honor.
