Wendee Freeman took Bonnie Phipps to Springfield last Tuesday to see her doctor for a check up.
Last Monday was the last day of February and I received five-tenths of an inch of rain. By Saturday morning I had one and one tenths of an inch of rain in my gage. Kay came by last Tuesday and picked up my news and I got to work out in my yard while it was nice last week.
Mark came by last Wednesday and brought me some eggs and he said that feed was higher the past two weeks.
Joel and Monica brought their dog, Rugger, up Wednesday night for me to keep until this Tuesday.
I cut limbs off of my forsythia bush Wednesday and Thursday morning and I gave starters away on Trading Post and some went to Norma in Wasola, Marsha Miller and Lisa Roll in Ava.
Edna Linder’s birthday was Thursday, March 3 and I took a card and a cake over and told Ruby to take her a piece of it. Edna is in Cox South Hospital. Ruby said they wouldn’t let her eat the cake because they had her on a special diet.
I went by Martin and Mary Ann Hathcock’s and took them some eggs and I planted Mary Ann four naked lady bulbs.
Cathy Cornett came over Friday morning and brought the Blakey book and we talked about some of her ancestors in it. Her little girl, Kayla, is the one who got her started in looking it up.
Friday night we had our business meeting at Mt. Tabor Church. Mark brought me some more eggs Saturday and Donna Nichols came and picked up hers and Mae Cox eggs before I went to town and attended Bob Moore’s funeral. I got to see Becky Davis, John Jr. and Kathy Goss. They came down for the funeral. Kay Hutchison came by that evening and picked up her eggs.
Last Tuesday I had finished up my news for the week before I heard a noise outside and when I went and looked out I saw a MODOT truck fixing my driveway. It sure looks nice and when you come off the highway you don’t drop off now. I sure appreciate it along with the mail carrier and all the others that come and bring me home.
Lets keep all those sick folks in our prayer because some will be having operations and some for chemo and others have a bad case of the flu.
My prayer and sympathy go out to the Moore and Siler families and all the others that have lost a loved one.
Lets keep our leaders and our men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training in our prayers.
