The big story is about the rain we received last week.

Our house was sitting on an island. The branches on either side were running over. It took three hours after the rain stopped to get out and see what damage it had done to our road, 436, the Rome road. A log had got hung up in the big tin whistle at 436. The water went over the whistle and washed most of the rock off of it, the water was higher then I’ve ever seen it. Of course road 436 was really damaged. The graders came out Saturday and helped it some. Tony worked most of the day Friday pushing and replacing gravel here and there so our road is in pretty good shape. We had 3-1/2 inches of rain Thursday.

Kenny Hunt came down Monday and mowed our yard. After Bible study Tuesday Norma and I had lunch at the health care center with Peggy, Irene and Goldie. Norma Cross and I was in Springfield Friday to take my Durango to Corman Dodge for repairs on a recall and we did some shopping in Ozark.

Saturday was a big day at my house. My son, Danny, and Beth Maloney from Sparta, my granddaughterr and three children from Springfield and my grandson, Matt, and his son from Forsyth were all here. They did some work for me. The children loved the water.

Julian Cavalier painted my living room walls Friday then came up Saturday to give them another coat of paint.

Freda Richards is feeling better and so is Pauline Hathcock, but they didn’t feel up to coming to church Sunday.
