Marilyn Entrikin had a busy week. On her 74th birthday, she was taken out to eat several times. She got cards and calls from near and far.

Marilyn has a tomato plant on her patio. It is loaded with blooms. She is hoping it doesn’t hail for the next few months.

Kenny, her son, and his wife, Debbie, called Marilyn to tell her it’s 100 degree there too.
