What a beautiful weekend we enjoyed here in the Ozarks. I spent the weekend with family and on Saturday morning our house was abuzz with activity, as many of us gathered here before starting on our day.
Youngest son, Jay, was working on a vehicle. Daughters, Jeanette and Janice were meeting to go to the Fair Grove Heritage Reunion (along with Cecilia Morris and Reagan Inman), Joey and Nicholas Inman had been at the Fordland Swap Meet, Caleb and Justin Inman were helping their Dad (Jay), and Sarah Inman was there to wait for us all to get ready to campaign as a family.
After finishing our morning schedules, many of us took out all over the county. It was a lot of fun working together. I finally decided the best job for me was to be the driver! I really enjoy being with our family and the time we all enjoy together.
This community was sorry to hear of the loss of Lonnie Glenn. We have known the Glenn family for many years and Lonnie was a strong supporter of the Fordland area. He worked hard to see that many projects were completed and he will be missed by those of us who knew him well. Also, I wish to express our sympathy to the Dickerson family in the loss of Donald Dickerson. His brother, Bob and sister-in-law, Janice, are members of our congregation. His sweet mother, Margie Dickerson is a treasured friend as well.
There will be trunk or treating at Kindall Store in Saturday, Oct. 30 from 5-7:30 p.m.
Also, if you would like to tour the Castle, you can arrange a tour by calling 241-2321. Tours can be arranged throughout the week or on a weekend. It is really an impressive sight to see in the rural Ozarks.
We are so excited that our good friend, Donna Douglas (Elly Mae Clampett of the Beverly Hillbillies) is coming to visit in October. She is coming to show support for Nicholas and will also be speaking at our church. She has been a cherished friend and she has such a remarkable testimony. If you would like more information about her visit call 241-2321. I will publish more as I have more dates and times.
We wish to thank Bruce Howerton for the beautiful painting of Kindall Store that he presented to the Inman family. It will be cherished for many years and a great way to capture the old time charm and look of our neighborhood store and gathering spot.
Not much to report this week. Hope you are enjoying the sudden change in temperature and look forward to seeing you all out this way. God bless.
