I talked with Bonnie Phipps Sunday and she said she didn’t have any news only that she got out Sunday and went to church.
Last Monday when I took my news in I stopped by the nursing home and saw Roxie Heimeyer and gave her a piece of Angel Food cake and a birthday card.
Carol Moore came by and picked me up and then we went to our O.E.S. meeting.
I went to Springfield last Tuesday to the sleep disorder center where I got a new mask for my sleep machine. I sure hope this one works this time.
Mark brought some eggs Wednesday and George and Violet Blakey came and got theirs.
Thursday morning I went over to town and picked up some strawberries and brought them home and then Violet came and got one box of them.
Carol Moore came up and ate supper with me then we went to the Stained Glass Theatre where we saw “The Hiding Place”. It sure was good. It ended Saturday, so if you didn’t get to see it, you missed a good one.
Friday evening at 4:31 I became a great grandmother again to a eight pound, ten ounce and twenty-one inch long boy. His name is Jett Wayne Coonce. His folks are Justin and Tara (Dering) Coonce. James came and took me up to see him Saturday and I got pictures of him. I think he is a dandy great grandson. I now have two great grandsons and two great granddaughters. I have nine grandchildren, so I will have lots more one of these days when they get all their education.
Friday I had one and three-tenths of an inch of rain in my rain gage and then Saturday morning I had six-tenths more. It rained Sunday night into Monday morning so I will give it to next weeks totals because it is still raining.
Sunday after church, Jo Stephens and Hellen Blakey went over to the nursing home to visit and I saw Pauline Schauffler and I went into see Roxie Heimeyer and she wasn’t in her room and someone told me she had fallen and someone else told me she was in the hospital, but the nursing home would not give me any information so I called her niece, Teresa, and she said to send her a card. She is in Cox South Hospital.
I stopped in and saw Peggy Jenkins and her four sisters were there visiting with her.
There are lots of people in the nursing home that need our prayers.
Lets keep all our sick folks in our prayers. My prayers and sympathy go out to all that have lost a loved one.
Lets keep praying for our leaders and the men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training.
