I talked with Bonnie Phipps Sunday and she said last Monday that she went out and got her mail and after that she hasn’t been out of the house because of the sleet and snow. Roy and Linda have been by and bring her mail in for her.
I told Bonnie that I went to her church Sunday with John and Jo Stephens and after Sunday school I saw Wendee Freeman and she took me and introduced me to her three girls, Madison, Sydnee and Alexis. They are real beautiful girls. The boys I did not get to see.
After church we stopped and ate before we came home. I guess when all the sleet and snow melts it will make up for some of the rain we need.
I took my news in last Monday and then Jo Stephens went to Wal-Mart and got some groceries before the snow came.
The first sleet, snow and rain melted down in my rain gage. At the first of the week I had one and one-tenths of liquid, then Saturday when I measured I had one inch of snow and I had one tenth of liquid when I melted the snow in my gage.
Mark said he got four inches Saturday and George said he had three inches so I guess I was in the middle of both sides, but that is all right because they need it more than I do.
Last Tuesday was Freda Richards birthday and I called her that evening because every one else called her that morning. Friday I got out and went to town and had my car inspected at Bumper To Bumper and while they were doing that I walked over to the bank, but when I started across in front of the Highway House there was a young gentlemen who came out and asked me where I was going and I said to the bank and he took my arm and helped me to the street and he said I could make it the rest of the way and then when I got back and crossed the street and got back on the snow there was another young gentleman that came out of the restaurant and asked me where I was going and I told him to get my car and he took my arm and I said let’s go around the restaurant because there was more snow and we went to the front of Bumper To Bumper and then he left. I got my car and went over to Martin Hathcock’s and took them some eggs that Mark and Mark Weston had brought to me before I came to town.
When I drove to the license bureau Ellis and Marsha drove right behind me and he helped me into the building and when I got my new tags he helped me to my car and he put the tags on for me.
I went and got some groceries and paid some bills and then I came on home, but it started snowing while I was at Wal-Mart and I got to see Gary and Bonnie Garrison while I was in there. I called and talked to Ray Blakey the other day and he said Leota was losing her voice, but he was doing pretty good. I talked with Bill Edmond and he and Ray both said that they had lots of rain out there a few weeks ago and Bill said it had caused some of his rental houses to leak.
I received calls from both my sisters, Mollie McPheeters at Camdenton and Katie at Knob Noster and they both said they had lots of snow.
Our prayers go out to all the sick folks so keep praying for them.
My prayers and sympathy go out to all that have lost a loved one. There were lots of deaths in the paper this week. Lets keep our leaders and the men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training in our prayers.
