James and me have been busy this week while he has been on vacation. We got some of our winter’s wood, he always finds things to do. I don’t look very hard to find work, ha. We fished one day several caught but no size.
Saturday we went to Mtn. Home, Arkansas and saw the tower Ethan Hutchinson fell from. So sad, but he left behind good memories for his family and friends. He had a good personality. I look back at pictures of him at church always smiling and eyes lit up like a Christmas tree. James married his parents, we knew them and watched them grow up; now their children and their children and to lose someone in such a tragic accident. I look at the picture of him sitting on the tower looking. I wonder what was he thinking about. Knowing him and getting the feel of the photo, I think he was thinking about God, heaven and creation.
Friday Connie Siler, Junior and Betty Halcomb and Janie Morrison went to Springfield, they ate at Ryans.
