Margie Smith took our picture at Plaza Garibaldi Mexican restaurant in Brevard following a birthday celebration for our exercise leader of over six years, Suzanne Lawson. Suzanne leads us in a free exercise class every Monday and Wednesday morning at the Family Life Center, working every muscle group in our body, some I didn't even know I had! There were 17 in attendance at the lunch for Suzanne.

Around The House
By Linda Young
We bought a bunch of annuals and perennials at Lowe's a few days ago. Unfortunately, they don't plant themselves. I spent three hours Monday planting and potting. Some houseplants needed a lot of attention, too. My honey brought over his neglected houseplants. He doesn't have much of a green thumb. It all looks great now, so it was worth it.
