Georgia Sanders, Norma Cross and I went to the Heart of the Ozarks Healthcare to visit with Peggy Jenkins and Golda Miller. We didn’t get to see Irene Richards because she was playing Bingo.
Dick Richards went to see Helen Dobbins, Thursday. They were trying to figure out when a picture was taken that their niece, Emille, had sent Dick for his birthday. They came up with the picture was of Dick when he was nine years old, standing by a 1940 Chevy truck, holding their bird dog. It would be helpful to name and date pictures when we take them. I guess we think it will always be remembered. We forget that we will get old someday.
Friday, Norma fixed lunch for Georgia, Dick and Pauline and Kenny.
Ronnie and Shellie Sanders from Tulsa, Oklahoma came up Saturday. They spent the night with Norma Cross at Goodhope.

Kaite Jenkins and Kinsey Thompson went with us. Oh yes, Glen Dale Robertson drove the church van for us.
