Last Tuesday by 11 that morning I had received a little over two-tenths of an inch of rain. Wednesday night at about six I received one-tenths of inch more of rain, then by seven on Thursday morning I had eight-tenths of an inch more of rain and that was enough for me and I was praying that George Blakey would get more than me and he did because it started running into his pond, which was getting low.
I think it was Wednesday when the wind blew and over east at Ellis Blakey’s house it blew the roof off of his well house and scattered the insulation everywhere.
Cathy Cornett came by Wednesday morning and visited with me for quite a while then in the afternoon Mark and James came by and they stood around talking for quite some time until James had to leave and go to Lakota’s ballgame.
Jo Stephens’ sister, Juanita Kazenske, had her 80th birthday Saturday so I baked her some of my homemade bread Thursday and sent it to her with Jo.
Mary Martha Williams came by Friday and that afternoon I went to town and got some medicine and filled up with gas. I went to Ozark Saturday and saw my niece, Brenda Henslee, and took her a start of my bread. When I left her house I went and saw Winnie Stafford until she went down to eat. Winnie looked real good. I then went by and saw Liz Bailey and they were feeding her and I asked how long had they been doing that and they said three weeks. She had just quit feeding herself, but she eats real good when they feed her.
I went over to the Stained Glass Theater when I left Liz and I met Monica and a group from her church in Branson and Brenda was there too. The name of the play was, “The Wayfaring Stranger” and was it ever good, go see it if you can.
Lakota was at my house when I got home with Fat Girl. I call her Bad Girl, but she is really sweet. They stayed with me until James and Kristie came back from her aunt’s funeral and then they stopped by and saw Kendra.
Carol Moore and Marie Dickey went to a meeting in Mountain Grove at the Sunny Side Café where they found out who will be our D.D.G.M. for the coming year and it will be Elvira Slater.

Monday there was no school and Lakota came back up to spend the day with me and Mark came by with some apples and we started peeling them to make Apple Butter. James came and got Lakota and took her over to the schoolhouse where she played volleyball and I went to my O.E.S. meeting here in Ava. Carol Moore came by and picked me up and then we went by and got Marie Dickey and took her too.
