What a beautiful day we had for Mother’s Day. I’m sure there were lots of picnics, barbequeing and visiting going on. Kelly grilled hamburgers for our lunch, along with, potato salad, baked beans and corn on the cob. Brian and Amanda Levelle, Gus and Stetson came by to pick Montana up, we had a good visit with them.
Week before last Juanita Herrell and Dick and I moved Norma Cross from Ozark to the Jenkins building in Goodhope. She’ll be living there this summer. Tuesday Norma and I visited with Peggy Jenkins and our cousin, Goldie Miller at Heart of the Ozarks Healthcare Center. Peggy is in a wheelchair most of the time now. She seems to be feeling better. Goldie broke her hip in three places so she will be in a wheelchair for a while. The Thompson girls both had injuries at school last week. Kinsey got hit on the side of her head playing ball. The next day Kailey tripped and fel into the schoolhouse wall. She hit her cheek and had to have five stitches on her chin.
Friday evening Kailey had her eleventh birthday party in the Plainview School gym. I’m not sure how many boys and girls were there. I know DeAnn and Kelly got fifteen pizzas, if that tells you anything. There was ten or eleven kids who spent the night with The Thompsons after the party.
Dick Richards went down to the sale barn Thursday to watch the cattle sell and stopped by Helen Dobbins for a visit on his way home.
For Mother’s Day DeAnn brought me a dozen yellow roses, a corsage to wear to church, plus a massage, later this week. I hope everyone had a Happy Mother’s Day.
