Not much news to share this time. Eva White called on Saturday as she wasn’t aware of the horse incident just down the road and wanted more details. Eva is doing fine. Ron Boeddeker called that he was heading to Missouri on Nov. 4th – his birthday, bringing quite a bit of processed caribou meat. We are all anxious for a safe trip and getting to see little Reanna after so long a time. Ron called Monday morning from Billings, MT and said it was quite cold, a bit of snow on the ground with clear skies. Ivan Lawson is back in this area from the northwest for a few months. Sonny Huff is home and managing to get around in a wheelchair.
Saturday was a Soup Exchange party at Anita Madche’s home. Fourteen people were there, each one bringing homemade soup and recipes. We sampled various soups and each took home several different soups in containers. Lois Neal and Kim Fincher won prizes. Sunday was Rex Boeddeker’s birthday so I took him and his mother, Arlene, out for lunch after church services. We saw Bill and Bonnie Bolding at KFC.
Someone took a mower to the Gaucher property (formerly that of Eva Wymer) and it looks so much better. They didn’t mow all of the asparagus area though. For quite a few years Eva offered me asparagus from her garden but it was left to go to weeds. Eva wrote a nice letter letting me know all the things she is able to do up by Lake of the Ozarks.
Last week when there was a fugitive in the Dogwood area, Bob Wagner came over to make sure I was OK and he even checked out my kennel and shed to make sure no one was hiding there. As the Herald reported, this person was caught in Ava. Bob and I did some mowing last week but as I am sure you know, the leaves continue to carpet the lawns and fill the gutters.
May God bless you and keep you safe from all harm.
From the desk of Jamey Herd: Not much to report this Monday morning. It is cloudy with some rain this morning. We need moisture as it is very dry. How many felt the earthquake? It woke me up with the house rattling and then my bed started shaking. It didn’t last long and it took me by surprise. We don’t expect to feel them in our area. I had not felt an earthquake since I was a child in Oregon and California. I guess we need to be prepared physically and spiritually for we never know what the next second will bring.
I don’t have much news again this week. I missed Church yesterday due to the flu bug. Next Sunday the Church will be filling the shoe boxes for the Shoe Box ministry. They plan to deliver them to First Baptist in Ava. Also some of the ladies will be attending Second Baptist Church in Springfield this next Saturday for the Fresh Grounded Faith women’s conference. Michelle Duggar is one of the featured speakers along with Jennifer Rothschild, the founder of Fresh Grounded Faith.
I hope to have more news next week. God Bless our Veterans this week. Blessings to all.
