Yesterday, Saturday, we attended a Filer Reunion in nearby Republic. Delbert and Doris (Filer) Holder hosted. She is my oldest niece. There were about 35 in attendance. It was held in the all purpose room at her church. Those that attended were Hilary Reader, husband and son, Mr. and Mrs. Brent Hesterly, two daughters and two grandchildren, Herb and Evelyn (Filer) Hesterly, Curtis and Bonnie (Filer) Ryan. Randy and Beth Ann Vance, Leo and Ruth Bradshaw, Teresa Chadwell, Leah Vaughan, Bob Filer and wife, Bill Filer and son Mark Filer, Bonnie (Filer) and husband Steve Kmetz, Mr. and Mrs. Brian Holder and son Lake, Doris and Delbert’s grandson Cody, four friends of the Holders. I didn’t get their names. We had a good catered lunch. We enjoyed the day immensely. Seeing all those old friends. Some I hadn’t seen since they were a teen. We appreciate the Holders for having this event.
We had a lot of rain tonight and lots of hard wind.

Our daughter, Leah, drove us to Branson Friday. Leo had business there. We came back through Nixa. Leah had business there. We met Rex Bradshaw as he works there. He says it’s very expensive to live there.
I hear the new Norwood superintendent has moved to the brick house Joe Cole and wife built a few years ago east of Lazy Lee’s store. School will soon start. If I were younger I’d be going to teach somewhere.
I have so many fond memories of my teaching years. I started a long time ago. I’m so thankful I got that privilege.
