Hats for You!


Thanks to one of our local Super Sponsors, Tim Morgan of Walton Thriftway, more than one in four Retreat 2011 attendees will go home with one of these beautiful straw hats. Tim donated over $200 worth of hats as door prizes for the retreat from our local hot spot, his honest-to-goodness old-fashioned mom ‘n’ pop country store. (If you haven’t read the post I wrote nearly four years ago that is like a love letter to “the little store in town”–be sure to read it here.)

Hats off to Tim–and you!

    Thanks, Karen Anne! I’ll take that off. The article was from a few years ago, so they must have moved it.

    He looks very friendly. Of course I would be too if I owned a local store featured in one of your articles. :)That was very nice of him to donate the hats!

    I suppose he figures that a lot of us who don’t win one might just have to go looking for them in his store! Well! We’ll show HIM won’t we girls!?!?! errr… well, but yeah, we’ll show him how well we follow the directions to get to his store cause they look really nice and all, and a good straw hat is pretty important. :happyfeet: :happyfeet: :happyfeet:

    Haa!! I’m very attached to the country stores in my area, and where I used to live in Westfield, NC, there is one just like Tim’s called Davis Hardware & Grocery Store, complete with a deli in the back! It was too cool to be able to stop in and get a sandwich, fencing staples, milk and gas up without going over the ridge.

    (Love the background, wouldn’t be a country store without Boone’s Farm, Wild Irish Rose & MD 20/20!! :devil2:)

    That is very nice of him, and will help keep the heads cooler if it is a hot day.

    Those would be marvelous to decorate. Which gives me an idea for my late dh’s straw hat. I have conchos and pheasant feathers!

    I’m hoping I will be winning one of those and packing it into my suitcase for the plane ride home!!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
