This past weekend was a great time to get out and look over the countryside. I really enjoyed riding around with oldest grandson, Nicholas and great granddaughter Reagan Inman. We began with a visit to Kindall Store where we enjoyed seeing Charley Brindley and Elaine Parny. A group of neighbors have been meeting at the store each Saturday morning to dicuss ideas for the area. While visiting with Elaine, she mentioned several of the ideas that they have had and I thought they were all really good. We are always interested in ideas to bring people to the neighborhood and the heart of our area, Kindall Store.
Following our visit to the store, we were off to meet with Betty Wells about Cardwell Chapel Cemetery. It is so beautiful there and I can see why so many have decided to be laid to rest there.
After our meeting with Betty, we were off to enjoy the remainder of the Fordland Swap Meet at the Fordland Saddle Club. It is hard to believe that it is the time of the year for the swap meet again. We ran into several longtime friends and Nicholas ended up with a couple new chickens to add to the farm. Seems just like the other day that his Grandpa was taking him to Rogersville when the swap meet was there and they would bring chickens home.
We were sorry to hear that our neighbor, Shannon Workman has suffered some injuries at work. They are such great neighbors and we could not ask for anyone nicer. We hope that he will be doing better and we wish him a speedy recovery.
It is with saddness that we note the passing of longtime radio announcer, Fred Lynn. Fred was a native of Douglas County and many of us fondly remember his days on the radio. We used to enjoy his visits to the Webster County Opry and he was a great preacher. Heaven gained another great person with Fred’s arrival.
