Lonnie and Pamela Crim and children came to Ava last week on Thursday. Those gathering out at Roy and Linda Freeman’s for dinner were Lonnie, Pamela, Logan, Alexa and Paola Crim, Cecilia Edwards, Bonnie Phipps, Ken and Debbie Cederlind and then Michael and Wendee Freeman, Matthew, Madison, Sydnee and Alexis came after they had started eating because Michael was helping with the new playground.
Pamela and Lonnie left for Joplin so Pamela could run in the marathon Sunday. Pamela has run in several marathons. Roy and Linda Freeman kept Logan, Alexa and Paola and they went camping with the three Freeman girls, Madison; Sydnee and Alexis. They went down Friday evening and came back Saturday evening.
Those are all Roy and Linda’s grandchildren, don’t you know they had a wonderful time, but if I know girls – Roy probably had to put ear plugs in because those cousins hadn’t seen each other for a while.
Carol Moore came by last Monday and picked me up and then we went over and got Marie Dickey and went to our O.E.S. meeting here in Ava.
Monica Reemes came up last Tuesday afternoon and we went up to Camdenton and spent the night with my sister. Dale and Monica got up and went to work in Mack Creek so I stayed at Mollie and Dale’s and our sister. Jimmie and Katie Moulder came down so I got to see them before Monica got off work and when she got back to Mollie’s we came on home and I changed clothes and went to church.
Cathy Cornett visited with me last week.
Thursday was a busy day – I saw my doctor in Ozark, then I went by Donna and Landon Fleetwood’s before I headed to Springfield where I met Mollie and Dale and I sat and talked with Dale while Mollie got a mammogram done then they went home and I went by Hellen Nettleton’s who was having a yard sale and I visited with her until I thought I could get to Ozark and get me a sandwich before arriving at the Stained Glass Theatre where I met Monica and ten of her church members there and we saw Welcome To Joe’s. It was a real good play so if you want to go see it you have only this Thursday, Friday and Saturday to see it.
Justin Coonce and Jett came and visited with me Friday. If you had been listening to the radio or read your newspaper, you know Saturday was a busy day down at Mt. Tabor Church where we celebrated our 125 years. We had a good turn out. I didn’t get a final county, but I am almost sure we had up in the 80′s because we had 75 at one time and the cars were still coming.
The music was wonderful and Nina Carter’s speech was really good and the food went off real well and we still have lots of food left and everyone that got a gift sure appreciated the people that donated the gift certificates and items to us.
Sunday, Don Bryan preached for us because Dennis Shumate’s Uncle Sherman Denney was in the hospital. He took his mother, Ruth Shumate, up there. Keep them in your prayers and by the time you get your paper Marsha Blakey and Ruby Smith will already have their operations and on the mend, but they will need your prayers to get-well. So keep them and all the other sick folks in your prayers.
Sympathy and prayers to all who have lost a loved one. May the Lord bless you with His presence and give you peace and comfort.
Lets keep praying for our leaders and the men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training.
