Louise and I were on the road a little earlier than normal…we’ve been invited to church. Bo and Jeannie asked us to join them this morning to enjoy a service at their church. We met Bo and Jeannie about 10am and joined them in their car as we drove down to Josephine Baptist Church. Josephine Baptist is beautifully landscaped with a massive area of green grass, Live Oak, and Pine trees. As soon as we opened the doors of Bo’s car we were met by a lot of their friends and neighbors. Pastor Dr Ted Mashburn met us at the entry into the church and made us feel like we had known him for ever. Bo had told us that he has this quality and also that he gives one heck of a good service. It didn’t take long and we were sitting in our pew and meeting the whole congregation as each and every person made sure that they came up and welcomed us in. Bo was right, Ted’s service was very good and one that we will take with us.
Following church, Jeannie had invited Louise and me and another 6 to join them for lunch at the house. As I had mentioned in one of my earlier postings, Jeannie is a great hostess and produces a wonderful meal. I hate to say that it was “just soup”, but that is what it was…SOUP !!! This soup was sooo good that everyone there was hoping that they would be able to get the secret recipe. I’ve been looking forward to eating the “local” foods and Jeannie has gone out of her way to make me happy. Today’s soup was “Collards Greens” and sausage and…. IT WAS SOOOO GOOD !!! Oh yes, there was also cornbread and an open bar… Bo was in charge of the open bar, and he did a great job too.
