Debbie Cederlind came down Saturday and brought her mother, Bonnie Phipps, a flower plant that was from her grandchildren because Saturday was Grandparent’s Day then she went back that evening.
Bonnie Phipps and Cecilia Edwards attended church Sunday. I took my news in last Tuesday and then I got my haircut. I went by Marie Dickey’s and I took her over to Dollar General to get a few things. On my way out of town I stopped at the Heart of the Ozarks and saw Pauline and Roxie. I was sorry to hear of the death of her brother, Ray Johnson.
My sympathy and prayers go out to the Johnson family.
I was busy last week getting ready for Old Folk’s Day.
Thursday I ended up with two and nine tenths of an inch of rain. Friday I received six-tenths of an inch by 9 that morning and then two-tenths more Saturday morning when I got up. During those three days I had a total of three and seven-tenths of an inch or rain, which was good.
I went over Friday before noon and went with Lora Kay Davis and Dwayne Davis came by himself to Grandparent’s Day at the Skyline School where our grandson, Mark Weston Blakey goes to school and we ate lunch with him. Afterward we went to his two classes before going outside then we came home at three.
Mark and James came by after I got home and they stood around and talked until it was time for James to leave and go to West Plains and watch Lakota play ball.
Saturday I went to the White River Valley Electric Co-op meeting and guess what? I won tickets to a show down at Branson and that was my first time to win.
Tom and Mary Martha Williams, Marie Dickey and Carol Moore all attended the past patrons and past matrons dinner at the Sunnyside Café in Mountain Grove, Saturday evening.
Janzen, who lives where Donna Fleetwood use to live, and I really enjoyed visiting with Jerry until Eunice came home. I will have to go back down there and visit again and they would love to have others to come too. I came on home because I was tired.
Well Old Folk’s Day was a success again and we had 43 there and 26 of them were 60 or older. I would say that Martin and Mary Ann Hathcock and all their children plus Martin’s brother and sister were there, so all of them together counted for about half or more of the total.
The ones that missed coming missed out on a very entertaining day.
Lets keep our sick folks in our prayers because some will be going to the doctor and others will have operations in October.
My prayers and sympathy go out to all who have lost a loved one.
Lets keep our leaders and men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training in our prayers.
