Lilly Lines by Jack Barlick 886-4694
My family and extended family spent the week of July 25 until August 2 at Ocean City, Maryland. Talk about HOT, it was near 95 degrees all week with like humidity. Coming home I made it as far as my driveway. I wound up in an ambulance and off to Altoona UPMC, where I spent the next ten days.
Thank you to my daughter Cindy for doing the last two weeks of Lilly Lines. I tried to convince her to take over, but she is not interested. Thank you also for all the prayers, cards, calls, and visits.
