The Macomb Sunshine Club met Monday at the Sunnyside Restaurant at Mountain Grove. Some of the members went to the foot clinic at the Senior Center earlier. We had a nice turn out. Those present were Joanne Gray, Ruth Bradshaw, Loretta Hall, Robin McNeil, Sue Dobbs, Sharon Norell, Erma Ward, Sharon Dake and Lois Neel. Visitors were Lois Neel and Leo Bradshaw. Our club will meet again Dec. 19 at the Corinth Baptist Church in Macomb. Each are supposed to bring one gift. Sorry I failed to show Joanne Gray present last month. I’m due one mistake in life.
Lois Neel has moved from Oklahoma to live with her sister Sharon Dake of Macomb. Welcome Lois.
We had a lovely dinner at the McDaris home Thanksgiving. All of Stacey’s family were present. I enjoyed seeing them, especially the grandchildren. They are growing so fast. Shawn brought a friend and his little son but I can’t remember his name. His wife had to work that day so he and his son came with Shawn. They were very nice. They live in Springfield.
We are invited to go to Rockbridge tonight with the Vaughan family. My other daughter is Leah Vaughan. She and Harold have three sons and seven grandsons. We will enjoy being with them. It seems Thanksgiving received more mention than usual. Christmas gets started very soon.
Kevin Gray and daughter visited mom and grandmom Velma Gray, Saturday. She is attending Bolivar College and likes it very much. I had Kevin in my room when I taught at Skyline. He was a young boy. That’s been several years ago.
Tyler McIntosh is now in one of the Carolinas and his parents are visiting him. His brother Weston is in Oklahoma but will leave for California next week. They are both supposed to spend Christmas at home.
We attended services at Oak Forrest last Sunday. We enjoyed it. A Mr. Shroder was the speaker. He did good. That visit brought back lots of memories. They seem to be doing good after it had been closed for some time.
I won’t fuss about the dark days and weather as it could be much worse. I don’t like icy roads and other bad conditions. I was complaining a while back and I was put straight by someone. Really we are so fortunate when we hear of the plight of other places. Sometimes we need to be put in our place.
