The Macomb Sunshine Club met Wednesday at the Ma and Pa Cafe in Mansfield. Those present were Loretta Hall, Robin McNeil, Joan Gray, Susie Dodds, Ruth Bradshaw, Sharon Dake, Marilyn Wilson, and the president Sharon Norell. Our visitors were Scott Hall who has just returned from Dubai and doesn’t plan to go back, Leo Bradshaw and Susie’s granddaughter, Alysea Norwood.
We enjoyed the program and fellowship. We hope Erma Ward can be with us next month. Scott Hall is Loretta’s grandson. His folks were gone as they have gone to Alaska with Leon and Rita Bradshaw and the group that went. I heard nineteen went. Hope they have a great time.
Scott’s wife didn’t come back as he came because her contract was two months longer. He has purchased a home in Springfield and will be busy getting it in order.
Some of the club went Wednesday before the meeting to the foot clinic held at the Community Center in Mansfield. They gave a good report.
Last night a long time Norwood resident, Opal Chadwell, fell and broke her arm and elbow. We wish her a quick recovery. She’s in a hospital. She will probably be there on her 93rd birthday.
My niece and husband, Ronnie and Deana Kelley invited me to go along with them to visit his parents, Garnet and Loretta. I don’t see them often and I really appreciated the visit. While we were there their daughter and granddaughter LeAnn Lanzinni and Hailey came.
Last night Velma Gray attended her granddaughter’s wedding at Rogersville. They were Julie Gray and Jim Posey. The bride is the daughter of Debbie and Kevin Gray of Norwood. We wish them a long and happy married life.
So sorry for the folks at Joplin. It could have been us. There’s so many disasters everywhere and they keep happening. The weather has been so different, lately. My daughter called this morning and said when she was outside she thought a big rain drop hit her but it was hail and it lasted about a minute and there was no rain in sight.
Violet Hinote is in the hospital with complications with her heart and diabetes. We wish her quick recovery.
Today is the Denlow School reunion. Some former Douglas County people from out of state are reported to attend. That would be important to me as I went to Brushyknob High School with them but haven’t seen them for years. I won’t get to go though.
We have visited three cemeteries and have one to go. That’s a good way to remember them and data.
Our perennial flowers have been so pretty but the rain messes up the blossoms.
My good friend Louise Murr called me today and she had just returned yesterday after visiting her grandson, Justin and Sarah Sinnings in Georgia. She said on the way back in Knoxville, Tenn., or near there they were in a hail storm that really dented her car and broke the windshield. That was yesterday so the weather is still doing its thing. Her daughters Karma Murr and Karen Sinning went with her.
