Miss Dickce Ducote from the best-selling Southern Ladies Mysteries by Miranda JamesMy older sister An'gel and I have so much to be thankful for this holiday season. First, we are both inexcellent health despite our decades on this earth. If you want to know how many decades, well, all
I'll say is that FDR was in the White House when we both were born.
In addition to good health we have a beautiful home, Riverhill, that has been in our family for generations, and we've had the funds necessary to keep it in good condition. We've also had the funds to continue the charitable work that has been a family legacy for over a century and a half. An'gel and I both love being involved in our community, Athena, Mississippi.
We are blessed and happy, but I'll be honest with you -- at the moment, what I'm most thankful for is that the awful business caused by our old sorority sister, Rosabelle Sultan, is over and done with. Rosabelle was always one to bring trouble and confusion with her wherever she went, and this visit was no exception. It's a good thing neither An'gel nor I has ever been prone to heart trouble, because I know my blood pressure was higher than it's ever been, and An'gel's must have been, too.
But it's done, now, and we can move on and look forward to the new year, when we go to visit our distant cousin, Mireille Champlain, over in Louisiana. That will be a nice break from the social round here in Athena.
