April 2, If you haven’t been out to see the dogwoods blooming, you have missed a blessing. They are so pretty this year. I also want to mention, our cousins from Wisconsin commented on how beautiful the road ways were while going through Ava; that was when the red buds were in bloom. So thanks to Wilma and her crew, for all their hard work making that possible.
Norma Cross and I returned home Saturday evening from Claremore, Oklahoma where we attended our annual sister party in Georgia Sander’s home, with Sue Johnson joining us.
We missed our oldest sister Reatha Haas who passed away last year. We are daughters of the late Lee and Mavie (Applegate) Jenkins, we all grew up in the Ava area. We had lots of nieces and great nieces join us on Friday night. We yard saled, on Thursday and went to Skiatook, Oklahoma to visit our brother-in-law, Jim Haas.
We always have a good time taking pictures, visiting and playing games. Norma’s daughter drove us down, we always appreciate Glenda Sue for looking out for us.
Dick called Freeda Richards to see how her brother Jim Haden was, she said he was in the ICU unit, he was stable but far from being well. Our prayers are with him. God bless.
