We saw the Silver Belles which was real good, but they are all good, anyway I think so.
I went to church on Sunday. Lots of prayers have been going up for our sick folks and all that need prayers for other things so keep all our sick folks in your prayers.
My prayers and sympathy go out to all the ones who have lost a loved one in the last two weeks. I won’t say names but you all have my deepest sympathy.
Please keep our leaders and the men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training in your prayers.

The Granny Scam is back in Douglas County again so all you grandparents watch for them.
My friend called me and said that she had a call from her grandson who was out of the country and when she spoke to him he didn’t sound right so she asked him for the name of his children and the guy said what did that have to do with it and hung up. You see a friend of hers told about getting scammed so she was a little cautious when she received the call. It has been on the radio telling about it, but not everyone listens to the radio so here is what they say. It will be your grandchild and they have done something to be put in jail and it will take $500.00 to get them out and you need to send the money to a certain place, then they will call you back and say they didn’t receive it in time so your grandchild will have to stay overnight in jail and you will have to send more money and as long as you send money they will give your more excuses until you catch on. You don’t get to talk to your grandchild except for the first call. My friend called some of her other friends after she called me, so be careful.
