A different Chirstmas
The good news this week is that the stimulus checks are being approved. I wish you could get them before Christmas but, when people have money, they sometimes forget how hard it is for those who do not have money. So many people are struggling just to eat each day, keep a roof over their heads and clothing on their backs as well as their children’s back. Hopefully this stimulus bailout will be a help, could be a better help, but any help is better than no help.
With everything that is going on, so many people will be missing seeing their families for Christmas, but that is okay. It is better to miss seeing them, than to go to their graveside services.

For Christmas my family does not want the traditional soul cooked meal like we had for Thanksgiving, therefore we are going to have shrimp foil packs. The ingredients are: peeled and deveined shrimp, chicken drumettes, small rings of smoked sausages, sometimes I use chunks of cubed ham, white potato chunks, small pieces of corn on the cobb, baby carrots, chunks of onions, slices of lemon, butter, two cubes of ice, and seasoned to taste. All the food is placed on aluminum foiled and it can be grilled or placed in the oven on 350 degrees.
Care Facilities: Jerome Banks – Forest. Billy Frank Williams – Newton, Percy Shepard – Brandon Court, Brandon, MS.
