The picture of Doris Liniger was cute when she was a teenager working at the Highway House. James and me ate there a lot when she and Don French owned it and some later on. James worked with her son, Rodney French at Fasco years ago. Where does all those years go? Seems like a dream.
Several are in the holiday mood with the pretty decorations around the hills and hollars. I sure dread all the traffic on the road and all the mess in the stores.
Traci Thompson called and asked about her aunt, Betty Halcomb. She ahd read about it on Facebook where she was in the hospital. Her mother, Lyn Halcomb, moved to an apartment as it is less maintenance for her.
Gracie Mitchell and Raina Powell visited us Sunday. Gracie made me think of her grandma, Tammy, with her expressions as she talked. They had lemonade and minature candy bars. Raina said they needed some for the road it was pretty far to grandpa, Jerry Nelson’s. Cute, huh? When they returned we did some rock hunting and kick ball. It was a good calorie burner for me. James and me enjoyed them. We hadn’t seen Gracie for a while. We always enjoy the Eastern Gate kids. It gets to you when they tell you they sure have missed you. We sure have missed them and all at Eastern Gate. We run into some at Wal-Mart once in a while.
James and David Halcomb have been cutting some firewood. Our wood pile looks pretty good.
James and me visited Junior and Betty Halcomb Monday morning. She was doing much better.
My sympathy sent to the Mary Thompson family. She passed away. Her husband, Rev. Carl Thompson, passed about two years ago. They meant a lot to people.
Betty Halcomb spent Thursday until Sunday in the hospital. She is feeling better. We appreciate everyone for their prayers. She had several visitors during her stay.
On Sunday 65 were out at Garrison Church and we were glad to have some of the Delmina girls and staff with us.
Sunday night Justin sang four songs for us. They were beautiful Christmas songs.
James led a testimony meeting. It was such a touching and moving testimony. Everyone gathered at the altar to pray for the requests made.
Christmas program will be December 18 at 6:30 p.m. at Garrison. Everyone welcome.
Sorry Jayme Morrison’s name was left out at their family gathering at Jean Loomis’s at Chadwick for Thanksgiving.
Visitors of George and Janie Morrison were Dillon and Carol Morrison, Braden and Chris Morrison, Roy Haynes and Rosa Robbins. George and Janie attended the visitation for Mary Thompson Sunday. A very large crowd attended. A very and I mean a very large crowd attended the 80th birthday party for George Jones, at the Henery Workman store building at Garrison, MO. Their daughter, Tresa and Keith took George and Shirley to Harrison, Arkansas for breakfast. It was funny to hear all the things that went on. We lined up everywhere and Shirley thought a bad accident had happened. They had a great time and received lots of cards and gifts. That was the biggest birthday party we were ever at. Lots of good food was served while visiting.
I sure hate to see winter set in. It seems too early, but here it is Christmas time. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a great 2012. To those who have enjoyed the items, I appreciate you for your compliments. I wish more would call me to put things in for them. Sometimes I don’t have enough to write weekly. As I always say High Lonesome is a big name, but hard to find in the paper. Look high, low and in between.
Have a great weekend. Remember God loves you and hears and answers prayers.
