A terrible accident last Saturday took the life of our friend and neighbor, David Littrell. His wife Nancy has been in serious condition but has been upgraded to fair. We are so sorry about it all. Pray for his family, Nancy and two grown daughters. Funeral services have been postponed because of Nancy’s condition. Pray for the family.
Velma Gray got to return home last Saturday and seems to be doing well considering she has to be very careful. Glad she could come home. I’m sure Dean, her son, was glad. She said her outside dog was glad to see her.
The Macomb Sunshine Club met Wednesday at Pa and Ma’s Cafe in Mansfield with six members present who were president Sharon Norell, Robin McNeil, Loretta Hall, Ruth Bradshaw, Susie Dodds and Sharon Dake. Visitors were Maydell Moody, Duane McNeil and Leo Bradshaw. The devotional was by Susie and she quoted from the book of Numbers. It brought out how everyone needs someone to lead them. Our roll call was answered with how to keep cool when we have very hot weather, especially before electricity. Most of us are old enough to remember that.
Again Leo and I rode along to Lebanon with Teresa Chadwell and Jo Ann Gray. They were seeing Dr. Witty. Jo Ann’s daughter, Dianna and her 8-month-old grandson met us there and spent a trip to McDonald’s and Aldi’s with us. We had a nice visit with them.
Jo Ann’s daughter Diana Amos lives rather close to Lebanon and works part time there. She was off Friday and took care of little Isaac. He’s 8 months old and has five teeth.
Teresa and Leah and Teresa’s grandson Peyton came Saturday. They helped me do some things which I really appreciated. We had lunch together. Leah went to the Country Express and bought cheeseburgers. So we had them with chips and Dr. Pepper. I sure appreciated their help. They are both so busy they don’t have much time to help someone else.
So sorry about the death of Bennie Talbot. He was my brother’s classmates and they along with Glen Roberts and J.D. Hill were close school buddies at Norwood. That’s been a few years ago.
My grandson, Ryan Vaughan is a patrolman and has an action camera on his vehicle someplace and it had a picture of a black bear hanging around some of his machinery at home along with some deer. He lives just south of Norwood in Douglas County. His little boy, Cooper, told about a black snake eating a copperhead. He said he slicked it down like eating a noodle. I’m not sure, but will try to find out where he got that before I mail this.
I didn’t get a chance to find out.
