I had a spur of the moment visit from my daughter and son-in-law, Deborah and Mike Turner. They were in Atlanta and drove over for the day. We enjoyed lunch with my other daughters, Annette and Laura, and son-in-law, Ricky Adams. Deborah and Mike took me for a drive around areas of Pell City that I had not visited in a long time. Afterwards, we went to Annette and Tommy‘s (Snow) home to help celebrate Tommy’s birthday with cake, pie, and ice cream. It was a really nice surprise. I love being with my children.

Congested? Tip from a nurse at St. Vincent Hospital, Downtown, drink Ginger and Lemon tea, with Probiotics (Bigelow), adding fresh lemon and honey. Lemons contain lots of vitamin C which is necessary for our immune system. And honey is a superfood, which will help coat and soothe your throat, control a cough, and promote a restful night’s sleep. So, at least one in morning and one before bedtime. Eucalyptus essential oil can help ease body aches from flu and clear nasal passages. Fennel oil can help as a cough expectorant. Stay well.
Don’t be late. Registration deadline for the 2020 Spring Sports season for Baseball, Softball and Soccer is now. Go by the Pell City Civic Center and sign up anytime during regular business hours.
