I talked with Bonnie Phipps, Sunday and she had gone to church and was doing ok. I had little Jett, Monday and Tuesday of last week. Violet Blakey stopped and dropped a package off last Tuesday. Mark brought me eggs Wednesday and I took some of them into town and then got some groceries.
Those at Bible study Wednesday night were; Nina Carter, Don and Evelyn Bryan, Kay Hutchison, Martin Hathcock and Hellen Blakey.
Those going to the Stained Glass Theatre Thursday night were; Nina Carter, Lakota Blakey and Hellen Blakey. When we got up there, we met Chuck and Karen Vaughn, who got the two empty tickets that we had and then Monica Reemes, Mike and Anette Ray came later. The play sure was good. It was called, “Unto the Least of These,” and it ended Saturday.
Lakota came up Thursday and stayed with me until Kendra came and picked her up Friday, around noon. Saturday was a big day for our Seniors, Kelsey Blakey is one of them and she is my granddaughter. At noon, we all gathered over at Dwayne and Lora Kay Davis’ home, to help her celebrate. She had aunts, uncles, brothers, sister-in-law, grandfather, grandmother, granny Hellen, cousins, friends, mother and dad, fiancé and his mother. I didn’t name names because I might leave someone out. We had a pot-luck dinner, with hot dogs and hamburgers. Kelsey opened her cards and got lots of gifts from everyone. I came home later and then went to the graduation at 7 and when I started home, I stopped by John and Jo Stephens and visited a while before coming on home.
Sunday after church, Justin and Tara Coonce, had a birthday party down by the swimming pool, for their son Jett, who turned one year old Sunday. Tea and lemonade were served with cupcakes, after Jett got his little cake. Lots of pictures were taken of him, but he didn’t care much about the packages, he just wanted to walk and pick up rocks.
Scottie Eaves, brought the morning and evening service, at Mt. Tabor Church, Sunday, and both messages were good.
