Another week has passed with no rain. Maybe this week we will get some rain. The weatherman is giving rain for this week. It is getting awful dry.
Tony and I spent Friday in Springfield. It was time for my doctor’s appointment. It wasn’t too good. He said I was anemic. I had never been before.
Saturday Tony Richards, Charlie Hampton and Arthur Hampton and his nephew butchered three hogs. They certainly were good-sized ones.
Sunday Cody Richards and Braxton came. Tony Richards and Charlie Hampton also were here. They were getting their guns lined up for deer season. Braxton didn’t want to shoot his gun. He was playing with his toys. I asked Cody if he had seen the bear any more. He said no, but he had seen signs where he had been.
May the Lord keep us safe for another week.
I wonder how many people would agree with me that these beautiful Ozark hills are the best place in the world to live. We’ve had good weather this fall.
Dick Richards and Terry Nelson went to the Farm Auction Tuesday in Crain. Pauline Richards went to Ozark Tuesday to have lunch with Aunt Vi Twibble and cousins, Randy Wolff from Colorado. He came in for Aunt Cotton Smith’s funeral on Sunday evening and J.D. Todd and Angie and sister, Norma Cross all from Ozark. Our neighbor Kirby Mackey brought us a big sack of pears. They were really good. I canned several quarts. Those of you living around Goodhope have missed the R.V. that has been sitting in Tim Jenkin’s yard for four years. It belonged to Pete Jenkins from Fayetteville, Arkansas. He pulled it back to Arkansas to sell.
We were in Springfield Thursday and Friday. Dick was having some test done.
Saturday was a busy day at the Goodhope General Baptist Church. My brother-in-law, Bill Johnson, and Sue, and Tom and Sheri Brown from Claremore, OK. all came up to help the men from the church put a steeple up. Larry Tidwell, Donnie Rasch, Mike Woodall, Logan and Cris and Dick watched from his chair as others came by to watch also. Sheri, Sue and I fixed breakfast and lunch for the workers. The steeple looks great. Our neighbor, Savannah Cavalier stopped by our house Sunday evening to show us her deer she shot in our field. It was her first one. I’ll bet she will be hooked on hunting from now on. She was so excited. They took pictures. It will be in the paper later I’ll bet.
