Well, Delmar and I were both a little under the weather on Sunday so we neither one went to church.
One day we took Delmar’s brother to Springfield to the doctor.
My mom, Nora Hunsaker, has been having trouble with her ear but is feeling a little better, she went to the doctor and got antibiotics. I talked on the phone to Theda Sanders and they are doing pretty good. Theda lost her brother, James Miller, last week and they were really close, closer than I have ever seen a brother and sister.
I talked to Howard Morris and he and his wife, Donna, have both been sick but are feeling better now. I talked by phone to Aunt Violet Morris and she seems to be doing better. Uncle Hugh Morris is about the same.
I am needing directions to the store River Stillwood is opening up. I would like to go and check it out.
Well I don’t have much news this week but until next week just remember to enjoy each day and live it as if it is your last, it could be.
