The rains sure did not drown the ticks and folks are saying the high water is making snakes begin to move. The nasty rain and cold sure is going to be hard for the turkeys to hatch this year. Instead of making the season shorter they probably will extend it. They may have to so you can find one. Three weeks is too long and hard on the body. Those who workout like it, but several schedule their vacation during that time.
James and me visited Florence Morrison at Ozark Wal-Mart. You see and visit a lot at Wal-Mart. She seemed to be doing pretty good. At Ava Wal-Mart we visited Tinsie (Pruett) Paul. I asked about her aunt, Evelyn (Brake) Pruett and she had passed away. Her mother, Jane and Evelyn are sisters. My sympathy sent to the family and all that have lost loved ones.
James and me attended early services at Diggins Baptist Church. We had promised Gary and Trish McMurry we would attend church with them one day. We missed Kerry and Dana Lafferty and girls. They came for the regular service. They are having two services until they get their new church built. They have church in a church by the one they lost by fire.
I’m sorry we missed Rev. Jerry Loveland’s phone call Sunday morning. He had the bug that is going around. James got sick while while we were gone, but he would of preached for him. This bug is no fun. Several had it. It’s flying around pretty good.
Clint, Deanna and Lane Porter helped her parents, Ralph and Melissa, work cattle. The Hutchinsons attended a memorial at Jefferson City for those who lost their life on work related jobs. She siad it was nice. It will soon be one year since they lost their son. But he left behind lots of memories.
Junior and Betty Halcomb enjoyed having her sister, Carol and husband, Frank, from Wisconsin. They and David Halcomb and Carol and Betty’s brother, J.B. and Marcie Casey, enjoyed eating at Shoney’s. David took his mom out for Mother’s Day.
Brad and Patty Siler honored his Mom, Connie and John at their home for Mother’s Day. I didn’t hear who else attended.
Visitors of George and Janie Morrison were Phyllis Bloomer and grandson, Austin, David Halcomb, Dillon, Gary, Brandon and Chris Morrison.
There will be a three night revival at Union Hill Church, May 19-21 with Bro. Jeremy Gilbert speaker. For more information call pastor, Bally Johnson.
Gracie Williams called and said she had good and bad news. Her granddaughter, Amber Blakemore, was saved. She was real happy, but she lost her sister-in-law, Loretta (Williams) Ellis. Gracie enjoyed Cecillia Williams phone call.
James and me visited a few minutes at Ozark Wal-Mart with Fae Pruett. She wasn’t feeling very well. Hope she gets better.
I was glad to hear Lacey Powell is home after her accident. I called Loretta Nelson and she found out how she was. Lacey is her niece. Remember Lacey in your prayers and Loretta’s grandson, Wyatt, will have to have lung surgery before long. She desires your prayers for him.
Congratulations to all the graduates. We received cards from Johnathon Hampton and LeAnna Grimes.
Dana Lafferty called and her daughter, Jaki, got saved. They are really enjoying where they are attending.
Marvin Hampton visited James Orick last week. He enjoyed the visit. Rex and Shirley Halcomb and Junior and David Halcomb, Dillon, Gary and Brandon Morrison also visited. Chris and Christy Lakey also visited us.
I visited Sybill Harvill and Junior and Betty Halcomb. Daryl Armour visited at Junior’s and at David Halcomb’s Thursday. Sybil has beautiful lettuce. She is like our mom, she can grow it. She gave me lettuce plus some of her kids. Sandra and Shellie have lettuce and I imagine a nice garden. My first lettuce, spinach and radishes didn’t do good.
Sandra Harvill has such beautiful roses by her porch. She said she doesn’t do anything special. But she has a green thumb and I can’t believe she doesn’t have a secret. They look like a professional grew them. I guess the secret is a natural green thumb.
Hope all you mothers had a good day and God bless you all.
