Good morning or good evening when ever you get your newspaper. I hope it is a good day for you.
Me and our dog, Go On, has had rather a leisure life. Now James has retired trying to keep up with him has wore me and the dog both out. That man can cover a lot of ground. No wonder at his work place they thought it would take several to replace him. Go On has been so tired she don’t even ask for her dog treat at the end of the day. You sure can tell the dog and mine’s age. I guess I’m just not used to being busy, busy, busy. I hope I can lose some weight following him around. I may have to find him a job. If I can eat and be as active as he is, I can shed a few pounds, but it usually makes me hungry. I need to get him started fishing. I believe I like the sound of that better than fixing fence and gardening.
In last weeks news it was printed incorrectly that James’ boss J.D. was a female, he is a male. It should have been printed that he said he left a legacy behind. Sorry, J.D.
Amanda’s centerpiece was four Hershey bars and a Kit Kat made the vase with small candy bars of different kinds filled the vase. They were glued on sticks which made the flowers that James likes. Different color balloons and retirement balloon in the middle. It sure was neat.
Wyatt Marler caught a two and a half pound white bass and prior to that his brother, Colton, caught some different kinds of fish. The boys fished with their family and Grandpa Marler and all caught fish. Shellie said she caught some white bass and Clint helped his son, Wyatt, land his.
I haven’t heard much success from people going fishing.
The weather has been a mess. But be thankful when you see what’s on television. It makes you wish you didn’t gripe.
Monday evening James and me attended the visitation for Dorothy Siler. A very large crowd attended at Clinkingbeard Funeral Home in Ava. My sympathy to all the family.
Sunday at Cardwell Baptist Church it was good to have Arthur Hampton leading congregational singing. His daughter, Mrs. Lisa Richards, sang a special and it is always good to hear Kerry and Dana Lafferty. Last Sunday they didn’t sing, but this Sunday Kerry felt more like it. Kerry plays the piano and that sure has helped out. Now if I can talk Art into leading the songs. Cardwell is a small country church with people wanting to serve God. You are welcome. We sure could use the help. Tom Pettit was able to be back at church. His and Phyllis’s son-in-law, Harvey (Harv) Smith is in the hospital with strep throat. We all wish him a speedy recovery. I know his son, Brock, is ready. Grandpa Tom was in the hospital and now his Dad. A lot of good, feel good testimonies were enjoyed.
I saw in the Herald where Ethel Posey passed away. My sympathy sent to the family. Ethel and Audie came some to White Oak when we had church in the school building. I believe he attended school there at one time.
Gracie Williams called Sunday morning. She had a prayer request for her granddaughter, Jessica (Williams) McCleary’s mother, Velita (Headings) Williams passed away.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, that’s tator planting time. That was my Dad’s day and he always raised lots of potatoes.
I will leave you with this thought, it was in scriptures James read Sunday before he preached.
Things are impossible with man, but possible with God. It is a good thought to remember. It is uplifting words.
