Well another year has arrived and I hope it will be better for everyone than last year.
Debbie Cederlind, Kaylynn Todd and Courtnie Vigesaa and Wylie came down Thursday to Bonnie Phipps and then Cecelia Edwards came over to visit with them while they were down.
Bonnie said Chris, Courtnie and Wylie were headed back to the Dakota hills where there is lots of snow this Sunday.
Last Tuesday when I took my news into town I went by Marie Dickey’s for a while.
Wednesday I received a half an inch of rain. Friday morning by eight I had another one-tenths of an inch and then by 1 p.m. I had five-tenths of an inch more. I didn’t see any hail Friday, but some said they did.
Thursday Mark brought me some eggs, but didn’t stay long. I went over to David and Patsy Dickins’ and took David a get-well card that I had sent to the hospital and it came back the same day he came home. Oh well. Patsy wasn’t feeling to good and I hope she is better now.
Evelyn Bryan stopped by Thursday evening on her way home. Brooke Three Eagle and daughter, Ana, came by and we had a good visit before they went back down to the house.
I stayed up Friday night until four after twelve and I called Lakota and wished her a happy new year and then I said good night to her and went to bed.
Cathy Cornett came over Saturday morning and got her carrot cake, then later on my sister, Mollie McPheeters, called me and wished me a happy new year and then she said hold on and we will call the others and wish them a happy new year. So I got to talk to my two brothers, Keith Simmons and Bernie Simmons. We then called our sister, Margaret Allen, and then Katie Moulder, but she wasn’t home so we left a message on her answering machine then we talked to Jean Simmons, our sister-in-law and she told us that she would have back surgery Tuesday and then a cousin of ours, Margaret Young, has a tumor behind her eye and they will put a metal plate between the eyeball and the tumor to shrink with radiation so keep them in your prayers and all the other sick folks out there, they just keep piling up.
My prayers and sympathy goes out to all who have lost a loved one.
Lets keep our nation and leaders and the men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training in our prayers.
