Friendship Sisters - July 2011

Saving CeeCee Honeycutt was Rhonda's book choice for July's book of the month.  We all adored this novel, it made us laugh, made us cry and showed us how amazing it is to make a difference in the life of another.

Beth Hoffman did an amazing job with this novel and there are so many wonderful quotes and wisdom for your "Life Book".  We discussed the characters and who we thought should play the characters if this novel was to become a movie, and all agreed on Queen Latifah to play Oletta.  We do hope that this wonderful novel does come to the big screen, and we all want to go to the premier.  Don't think it will ever happen, but it never hurts to dream.

Memories are made when everything does not go as you have planned and they make for great laughs.  Rhonda had been out of town for four or five days and came back home the evening prior to book club.  Well, when she walked into the house she noticed a lot of gnats.  She looked everywhere to see where they were coming from, finally found that her baking potatoes that were out in the garage were going bad due this oppressive heat.  Rhonda apologized to us all, of course we've all been there and didn't think a thing about it.  However, as we were discussing CeeCee, there were times when one of us would swat the air, our face, etc.  and we would just start laughing.  OK you see the humor don't you....oh maybe you just had to be there.

The phone rang and rang and rang during book club.  What made it so funny was that when book club started she got a call and hung up on the caller.  She said "I never get calls, it is probably someone from a political campaign".  Well that phone rang at least ten times!  Finally she answered it and it was a cousin that she hadn't talked to in forty years.  Her cousin was wondering why she kept getting disconnected.  "Well I thought you were a politician, Rhonda replied".  Believe me that caused a real chuckle.

Rhonda prepared and served "Chocolate Delight".  WooHoo, it was good! I wanted seconds but didn't want to be tacky.  I don't know why I let that stop me, I never have before.  Mom said a gnat flew into her serving, but she couldn't find it and wasn't going to miss out on such a good piece of pie.  Dang it was good.

Our sweet Sister, Kelly is moving to Oregon and will take off from Kansas sometime by the end of the month.  We will miss her dearly but trust that God has great things in store for she and her family.  We love you Kelly!

Please continue your prayers for Sister Marsha and Terry as he recovers from a bone morrow transplant.

Next month's book - Sisterchicks on the Loose by Robin Jones Gunn
