Tina and Dwight Collins are having a busy summer. Their granddaughter, Claire Marriott, had a birthday July 5. She turned 8 years old. Happy birthday, Claire. Claire will be visiting Tina and Dwight the last week in July. Dwight has had two teeth pulled and has to have another pulled this coming Tuesday. Bless your heart, Dwight. Tina said they are getting tomatoes from their garden and some squash, too. Their neighbors came home from Florida for the 4th of July. Brian and Lisa Dollard have a home in North Carolina next to Tina and Dwight. Wayside Baptist Church had a pig-picking Saturday and Tina and Dwight went to eat the good food and enjoy the fellowship. It was Tina’s first pig-picking. The way she talked she would like to be invited to some more pig-pickings. Don’t forget Tina and Dwight when you have yours. They will be leaving for Kure Beach soon. I don’t think their lives are boring. Do you?
