A good Tuesday morning to all our readers.
How about the weather yesterday? What a beautiful day in the Ozarks. It kind of gave me garden fever, not really just dreaming, but it would be nice to be able to do that again.
No news last week as your reporter was out of town and so I will try and catch up this week.
We send get-well wishes to all the sick, the ones in the hospitals and the nursing homes. Our sympathy to all who have lost loved ones. May God bless you in your time of sorrow. Our thoughts are with you.
We also send greetings to all who have a birthday at this time. May you have a great day with many more to come.
We had no monthly dinner due to the snow and ice.
We appreciate Heart of the Ozarks Healthcare Center for our Valentines that was delivered on Monday.
This news from he desk of Fae Pruett. Visitors of Fae the past few weeks have been Jane Pruett and Ester Todd of Ozark, MO., Wanda Hutchinson, Tina Johnson, Jackie Nelson and Lois Graham.
This news from the desk of Emmalyn and Ellis Stephens. Emmy and Ellis have a new great-grandson born February 8. His name is Cole Allen and he weighed 7 lbs. and 14 ozs. and was 21 inches long. Mommy and baby are doing great. Emmalyn just found out her new great grandbaby is a boy due in July. Ellis and I both have been down with the flu. Hope everyone else is getting over it. We went to the Pizza Hut for Emma Jean Johnson’s 4th birthday party Sunday, Feb. 13. She is our Valentine girl.
I am so glad to see the ice and snow going off. Please watch out on the ice as we don’t want any broken bones. Visitors of Norma Jones the past few weeks have been most of the family, Bud, Ralissa, Lane, Steven, Amy, Naomi Watkins and Peggy Greene, also Derek Watkins and Christina. Jerry Lee and Kim took me to the farm Thursday night to watch Jacob while the girls worked. Then Steven brought me home on Saturday night then back to the farm on Sunday the 6th. I stayed all week then home about noon on Saturday the 12th. The girls stayed some nights in Springfield so they could work. I was so glad that God had a watchful hand in all the traveling that was done on the ice and snow. I think about the song something about “Jesus Take The Wheel” in weather like it has been. Until next week, stay warm and healthy and remember Jesus loves you.
