There isn’t much going on. It was real slow last week and not much excitement this week.
Effie (Applegate) Young’s daughter, Madge Nelson, passed away.
My sister found the notice in the Springfield paper. Effie and Madge always kept in touch with each other until their health failed, both were good Christian ladies.
Wednesday, James and Linda Orick visited Alice and Jimmy Nelson at Cox’s Walnut Lawn in Springfield. She had knee surgery.
Happy birthday wishes sent to our niece, Connie Siler, James’ sister, Chris Lakey and friend, Loetta Nelson, all on Oct, 2.
Janie Morrison visited Shelley Marler and Jean Loomis. George and Janie visited Junior and Betty Halcomb. Dillon, Gary, Brandon, Bo and Calab visited George and Janie. Janie and Betty went to Springfield Friday. They ate at Ryan’s.
Junior and Betty Halcomb had Sunday dinner at their son, David’s home. He usually invites them for Sunday dinner.
Keith Williams and his grandma, Sybil Harvill, drove down Boulders to the cemetery. Keith has several family members buried there.
I talked to Alice Nelson and she enjoys her cards, visits and food while at home and when she was in the hospital. She was in a lot of pain. Pray for her. She is very active in church and helping others.
Jane Pruett called just right after Alice on Monday. She had been at Sue and Bill Gardners and Shelia and Jeff Hamptons. The Hampton’s daughter was in several ball games she got to attend. Kinsey is Jane’s great granddaughter. Sue took her to the Oldfield Pig Roast for the first time. She enjoyed it. She gathered some flower seeds and has been sneezing a lot. Her and her daughters, Ester Todd, got their flu shots. They are ready for the winter.
Fall seems to be here. I have had a few fires in the stove. Monday I cooked a pot of squirrel and made dumplings and a pot of brown beans.
Spiders are crawling and weaving webs. A light frost has hit in several places and we are losing daylight. The nights seem long and get dark so quick, but wait until the time changes.
So much for griping.
Enjoy the nice fall weather.
