Frank and I have no hot water yet....so last night we decided to run to Gedney's for dinner.....forgetting of course that they were closed on Mondays. That prompted us to run to LaGrange for dinner. While headed to LaGrange we both saw a man stumble and fall out of the woods. He did not get up when he fell so we turned around and went back to offer assistance. By the time we returned to him he had semi-crawled to the edge of the road and appeared to be trying to flag someone down. We stopped and got him to sit up next to the car. He had been hit upside the head a number of times and was complaining of a massive headache. Shortly after we stopped a Georgia Highway Patrol stopped...and then a few minutes later a Sheriff pulled in. Of course we could not leave the scene because we had to answer questions and the young man was leaning up against my car. He obviously had been drinking and admitted this to the police officers. He had been at a State Park nearby and was trying to make it to his cousins house but became disoriented. Once the ambulance arrived and they loaded him up we were released to go. As I sat there watching the scenaio unfold I wondered if anyone we knew had passed....seen us stopped wtih not One but TWO police cars and an ambulance and wondered what the Rock Mills UMC preacher and his wife had been up to. So...now if you saw us.....you know the rest of the story! We were just being Good Samaritans. What a crazy day...part deux!
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
