I went to Springfield with Stacie Hamby one day last week and we visited with her mother, Rhonda Slayden. We enjoyed wallking around in the back yard and hearing the crunch of the fallen leaves as we walked. We had lunch at Schlotsky’s and also, did some shopping while in town.
We have seen some hunters who were successful in bagging their deer for this season.

On Friday I helped Kathleen Deatherage cook some Elderberry jelly then Vern, Kathleen and I met Becky Carter in Ava for lunch at Ruby Garden. Becky and I followed Vern and Kathleen to their cabin for a short visit, then Becky and I stopped by to visit with Bevy Moore. Becky Carter then visited with her dad, Eldon Bice before heading to Mansfield and visiting with Keith and Donna Bannisteer.
I stopped by the Heart of the Ozarks Healthcare Center to visit with Uncle Mack Miller who is there for therapy for awhile. I also, visited with Ruth ”Fannie” Hall, Laura Lansdown and Larry Peak while there.
I have been working on my crafts, getting ready for the holidays. I hope to soon start making the holiday candies. I will try to get some peanut brittle made for Uncle Mack Miller. He sure seems to enjoy it and the rest of the family never sees it because he hides it from everyone.
Until next week be safe and healthy.
