We still haven’t got any rain so far. It will start before long. We will wish it would stop probably. I certainly can say we have had beautiful fall weather. The trees are so pretty with their different colors. The leaves are gone off the trees most of the time by deer season. It isn’t long before that time will be here.
Lisa Richards, Betty Bricker and I had our fall garage sale last week. We had a good turn out for the time of year.
Lisa and Tony Richards along with Charlie Hampton and Arthur Hampton visited with me Sunday afternoon. Lisa worked in the pears today.
John Bricker brought me some pears from his orchard in Texas. His trees were loaded with fruit this year.
My sympathy to all that have lost a loved one and anyone in need of prayer.
God bless America.
After doing without water for four days, it makes one appreciate their water much more. The well pump at the Dick Richards’ home went out a couple of weeks ago during the weekend.
Pauline Richards met with her sister, Norma Cross, in Ozark last week and Norma’s daughter from Clinton, MO. drove them to Claremore, OK. Sunday afternoon on the 17th. On Monday the 18th they along with Georgia Sanders of Claremore and Pete and Sandra Jenkins from Fayetteville, AR. and Jim and Reatha Haas from Owasso met at Bill and Sue Johnson’s home in Claremore for Reatha, Sue and Glenda Sue Stunz’s birthdays. A cousin, Margie Forman and Glenda Sue came home Tuesday.
Jim Goetsck and his friend, Brice from Longrove, Iowa came to the Richard’s home Monday and left Thursday. They put a roof on the back room for Dick. After that was finished they spent their time running around. Dick was pooped out by then and they left. They are younger than him.
My aunt, Alline (Cotton) Smith past away Thursday morning. She had only been sick a few weeks. She has been living with her daughter, Renee St. John for about four years in Ozark. Her funeral was Sunday the 24th at the Adams Funeral Home in Ozark. She was the youngest daughter of the late George and Dora Applegate. There are two sisters left out of ten children, one is 91, the other one is 89. The funeral home didn’t have room for all the people to sit down. Nieces and nephews from Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas as well as Missouri were there.
There were lots of people who attended youth night at Goodhope Baptist Church Sunday night. Our appreciation and praise go out to the youth leaders and a great big praise that Larry Clayton was in church Sunday. He has been down for months. I’m sure no one was happier than him to get out of the house.
