Your reporter has been on the go again. On Friday Emmalyn Stephens and I “Norma” went to Cabool for the Golden Age Games put on by several nursing homes. What a day that was. On Friday back to the farm with Naomi. On Saturday the girls and I went to Sparta for Persimmon Day. Back to town Sunday morning in time for church. On Monday evening Steven, Jacob, Kyle and Nathan stopped by for a short visit. It is always good to see the children and to know everyone is okay.
Listed last week under the 100 years ago October 31, 1912 was the names of J.N. Greene to Minnie Baker of Depew. Should be J for Jay N for Nathan. Greene to Minnie E. Becker. That is my grandfather and grandmother. My father’s parents. I didn’t know my grandfather as he passed away in 1936 while daddy was still in high school and buried in the West Dogwood Cemetery.
