I talked with Bonnie Phipps and she said she had been watering her plants and the grass around them are green, but the rest of her yard sure needs some rain though they got a little, over a half of an inch of rain Saturday.
Last Monday and Tuesday I mowed my grass and on Tuesday I got stung on my wrist so I left that little patch of grass until James came by that evening and he finished it and they didn’t come after him.
Those visiting in my home Wednesday were Tara Coonce and son, Jett, Mark and James Blakey.
Tara Coonce and Jett were here Thursday and had supper with me and James came by and played with Jett before he went to the ballgame.
Friday I went to Skyline School to attend the grandparents day because Mark Weston Blakey had called me to see if I could come and I said yes. On the way there and back I got me some old saw dust and cow manure to fix me a bed to plant me some garlic on September 28. If you like garlic plant you some that day.
Next year in the Spring till it like you do your garden and then in July dig it up and see what you have grown.
Mark and Sherry Blakey, Mark Weston, and Lora Kay Davis came by and picked me up and we all went down to the White River Valley Electric Co-op and had a wonderful time, but didn’t win anything. We met Monica Reemes there and then she had to leave and go to work after it was over and then we went and ate before coming on home.
Marie Dickey, Carol Moore, Doris Morrison, Charlotte Bock and Mike Bock all attended the Past Matron and Past Patron meeting in Mtn. Grove at the Sunny Side Café Saturday evening.
Sunday was Old Folk’s Day at Mt. Tabor Church in the afternoon. It was our 55th year and we had a wonderful program and the ones who didn’t come missed out, there were 28 that was 60 and older and 12 that was younger.
Mae Cox didn’t get to come so I went over to her house to play what I recorded and when I started to play it back for her a little bit on one side recorded, but when I flipped it over, I don’t know what went wrong, but it was all blank and that was a shame.
If you know Mae you don’t leave without something so I got a bowl of brown beans for my dinner today.
