Carl and Joan Fletcher visited with his brother, Billy Fletcher last Monday. Billy’s Aunt Jean Daugherty visited with him, Saturday. Sunday, Billy Fletcher and Stanley Goodrich were honored with a birthday dinner at the home of Charlie and Fred Lindberg. Carol Riggs and Doris Holman were there also.
Lois Wideman visited with Tom and Jewell Johnson last week. Tom and Jewell are still doing pretty well.
Last Monday, Norma Stillings drove her friend, Paulette Walls, to medical appointments in Springfield. It was an all day thing with them leaving town at 7:30 AM and getting back home at 5:30 PM. That prevented her from writing the neighborhood news last week.
While Norma and Paulette were returning home they got into a bit of excitement when the evening rush traffic got backed up because of an accident between Springfield and Rogersville. The amazing thing was the number of drivers that were driving on the shoulder of the road to get past the slower traffic that had gone into one lane to let the police cars go by. One of those cars from the shoulder cut in front of us, went into the passing lane, and bumped into the back of a car that had slowed down at the intersection perhaps to see what was going on the median. It was a relief to get past all that.
Norma attended a Support the Handicapped meeting, Tuesday evening. Norma went to the Heart of the Ozarks Healthcare Center Thursday afternoon as Ombudsman Volunteer, went back Friday evening for the Fourth of July celebration, and Saturday morning to play the piano and visit with residents. She went to church for all the regular services plus the Ladies Bible study Thursday morning and visitation Friday morning. She spent the rest of the time trying to do some belated spring cleaning. That spring cleaning probably won’t be finished before winter, but at least it is progressing a bit now and a bit then.
