Last weeks news –I read Ruby Satterfield’s column, Little Creek. It is always a joy. She wrote of the death of Rev. Mark Degase and that was so sad. Her writings sure warm your heart. I have never met her, but I know I would really enjoy visiting with her.
Dana Lafferty called and her daughter, Jackie, was in the hospital. Everything went good and she was able to be in church Sunday.
Roger and Irene Swearengin visited them in the hospital and took Jackie a new doll. The Swearengin’s were also shopping for granddaughter, Alexis’s first birthday. Irene said that it’s hard to believe she was already one-year old. I am glad Irene’s voice was much better.
They say the older you get, the faster time flies. I sure believe it as it is already the middle of January.
Get well wishes are sent out to Rev. Dennis Downs. He has not been feeling very good. James and me know all about not getting much sleep.
Jane Pruett enjoyed her niece, Jackie Nelson, last week. They ate out and they enjoyed talking and looking at Jane’s sewing corner. The kids fixed her a place by the heater so she was snug as a bug in a rug. Jackie visited her aunt, Fae Pruett, of Ava. Jackie also enjoys having her grandchildren visit and spend nights with her.
Saturday night, January 22 at 6:30 p.m. at Mt. Olive/Highlonesome Church will have their monthly singing and appreciation supper. Everyone welcome.
There was a misprint on J.D. Morrison’s birthday. He told me I could remember his birthday by remembering the numbers 1,2,3,4. It is a combination to remember the month, date and year.
Anyone having church news or items to share, please call me.
I am putting some in for Mt. Olive when they ask me to and I would be delighted to put your items in my column, also.
James and me went fishing and it wasn’t cold until 1 p.m. on Wednesday and the wind came up and got cold. We caught some fish and had a good time.
I called my cousin, Chloe Morrison Wolford and she was better. I also talked to her sister, Betty Satterfield, at Wal-Mart and she had spent a day with Chloe and she was happy she was better. Around Highlonesome she is Sugar Babe and her family call her Suggie. Betty looked and acted like she felt pretty good for all she has been through.
Saturday I visited Janie Morrison. She fixed dinner for George and Bo and they were busy working.

Cardwell Missionary Baptist Church invites you to Sunday school at 10 a.m. with preaching starting at 11 a.m. God is blessing the little country church. God has blessed James spiritually and he is physically able to preach. Pray that sinners will come and be saved. You sure enjoy services when God anoints them from on high.
John and Connie Siler attended Merle and Darlene Davis’s anniversary celebration at Plainview School. Happy birthday to their granddaughter, Kaylee Evans. Her grandparents, John and Connie Siler, had her a birthday party. Junior, Betty and David Halcomb all attended.
Pray for an early and warm spring.
This weeks news – I sure could stand some nice, warm weather. You see a lot of smoke rolling out of the chimneys in these hills and hollers and a lot in the cities anymore. I am afraid of another cold spring. I hope it does not affect black morels as we did not have a good season last year. Some are excited seeing robins and buzzards. I think the birds and everyone will have a rude awakening. It sure will be a late Easter.
Iona Maggard told me her nephew, Truman Crow, passed away.
He and my brother, Rex, were good friends growing up. He called Rex and talked a while back. Our sympathy sent to his family. Truman use to go to Highlonesome School and my brother, Junior, was his teacher. That was a long time a go.
Simmie, Tonya and baby Jack Nelson visited George and Janie Morrison. Florence Morrison’s sister, passed away. My sympathy is sent to her and her family.
