I am proud of the showers we got last week. Some were not so lucky, we could use a lot more. It is so terribly warm. I had company the week before last, Scharleen Bricker, Donna Bricker and Kim Ragles from Mineral Wells, Texas. They spent a week at their cabin. We had planned on going to garage sales. I got sick and couldn’t make it.
We appreciate our many friends who have called me since I’ve returned home. A special apprecation to my son and daughter-in-law, Lisa, for coming and helping me.
Sunday visitors were Cody, Lisa and her daughter and Braxton Richards and Daryla Harris. Braxton was going to stay a few days with Nanny Lou (Daryla) or until he got homesick.
Rustin Ryan plans to be here this weekend if nothing comes up.He has been to Joplin for several days working. He is in the National Guard and lives in Florissant, Missouri.
The airport is close by and the tornado that hit it did a lot of damage.
Have a good weekend.
We spent the Fourth of July at home. Kelly and DeAnn Thompson, Kinsey, Kailey and Kyle came down late afternoon. Kelly grilled our dinner and we had potato salad, baked beans and watermelon and at dark, Kelly and the children set fireworks off then Tuesday night they came down and set more fireworks off. We really enjoyed it.
Thursday night was Kinsey and Kailey’s last ballgame. They won third place. They were both on the PC Express team.
My son, Danny Maloney, called us Friday morning to come up and he would give us some veggies. He lives north of Sparta on the Finley River. We came home with green beans, cucumbers and other veggies. On our way home we stopped to see Norma Cross. Kenny and Seth Hunt and Juanita Herrell were all there. I set our bucket of green beans out by them on the front porch and we all visited while breaking green beans, ready for canning. I thought was pretty clever to think of that.
Julian Cavalier’s mother and sister and brother-in-law from Louisana came up Saturday for a visit with Julian, Becky, Savannah and Emily. His sister and brother-in-law left Sunday afternoon. They left their mother here. They went to Nebraska for a few days and will pick his mother up here before returning to Louisana. They brought some crawfish to the Cavaliers so Julian is sharing some of them with Dick.
After church on Sunday, Beaver Creek down Jackson Mill road was the scene of a crowd of people that came to watch Pastor David Welch, from Goodhope General Baptist Church, baptize four young people. What a blessing to see young people give their lives to Jesus.
It was good to see Trina was able to go to town last week. I think she is gaining her strength back.
