Oh No! Not Again!

Actress Sela Ward is from Meridian, Mississippi. It is 90
miles east of here. My Aunt Wilma lives in Meridian. So
today Melanie(baby girl) and I are going to visit her and
the three of us are going, oh no, shopping!!!

Sela Ward built a Children's Home in Meridian called
Hope Village. It is a shelter for abused children who have
been removed from their primary care taker's custody due to
abuse or neglect. She opened a thrift shop in 2000 that helps
support Hope Village. I have never been to it but my Aunt
frequents it and gets loads of bargains. The stuff has all been
donated and she says most of it is new or like new! So we are
going to check it out..................

I shouldn't tell it but most town's in Mississippi also have
one of these and the merchandise is always different!

OH NO ! NOT AGAIN ! I nor my bank account are going
to survive this visit by "the girl"! I'll do a report if your not
already sick of shopping like me!!!

Think of it as doing your share to help the economy by supporting local businesses. And have a wonderful day. Can't wait to see what you got.

C'mon Carol, you are so loving this, shopping and all. Can't wait to see what you can't live without!

Hi Carol, Sounds like you are having a great time with your daughter. She is gorgeous---looks like her pretty Mama!!!!! I'm glad you all were helping the economy!!! ha

I love Sela Ward. I had no idea she was from Meridian. We drove right through there this week.. In fact we stayed at Jackson on the way to Texas. Sela is one of my fav's... Great Lady!!!!

We are glad to be home.. It was a wonderful trip --just getting to see my son and family. BUT--the weather was horrible. Oh Well!!!!

I'm going to check through some of your older blog posts.

ha come, easy go.
Shopping is a good way to get rid of it. (Better than giving it to the IRS.)

I was born in Meridian!!! Small world, no?

I only lived there for six months, so don't ask me anything about it. But I do have a photograph of the house we lived in. Pretty place, back off the road, under the trees!

I had to read this twice. The first time I read it I thought you were going shopping with Sela Ward. "That Carol knows everybody!" I thought to myself.
