I talked with Bonnie Phipps Sunday night and she said had went to church.
George and Violet Blakey dropped by last Monday while they were in town.
My only trick or treaters were Johnathan, Annie and Alexia, Cathy, Tyler and Kayla. I had given the other kids their treats earlier. Ellis Blakey came over last Tuesday and put me a different breaker box in because the other one had a short in it and it could have caused a fire. James and Lakota came up that morning and James helped Ellis until he had to take Lakota to school. Mark Tate came and pulled my meter so it could be done. Tara brought little Jett over and Lakota got to hold him before she went to school.
George and Violet came by Wednesday and picked up some eggs and I gave them some of the candy that I had left.
Tara and Jett came over Thursday and James came by and saw little Jett for a while.
I was sorry to get a phone call Wednesday telling me that Norman Duckworth had passed away.
Friday night was Ava O.E.S. Installation of New Officers for 2012, we had a real good turn out. I think there were 48 all together.
Carol Moore is our new Worthy Matron and Michael Bock is our Worthy Patron.
Saturday I attended Norman Duckworth’s funeral.
Sunday after church I went over to the nursing home to visit with some of the people there and I found out that Irene Richards had fell and broke her back and she was in lots of pain when I visited with her. I saw Pauline Schauffler, Roxie Heimeyer and Melba Wilson had gone home so I went up and saw Peggy Jenkins who will have a birthday Tuesday and I gave her a card from the Mt. Tabor Church because I would not be there on Tuesday then when I started to leave I saw Joan Pond.
We have lots of sick folks out there some are at home, nursing homes and hospitals so keep those prayers going.
My prayers and sympathy go out to the Norman Duckworth families, Rosco Ehrhardt familes and all the others who have lost a loved one.
Keep praying for our leaders and our Nation and the men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training.
