Monday morning, Labor Day, September 2nd, guess the last “summer” holiday of 2013 is upon us. Wishing all had a good weekend. Is nice and cool this morning.

On Tuesday Ann Collins and Ella May Daugherty visited a while with Karen and Ted Collins.

Wednesday, Patty Chambers of Clever come and got me and took me to Springfield on Thursday for my doctor appointment. Carter Chambers spent Wednesday night and Thursday with us. On Thursday night Aaron Chambers and Josh Chambers met us at Ruby Tuesdays in Nixa for dinner. Patty brought me home Friday evening.

Ann Collins has had company since Friday. Linda and George Owens of Bristol, OK. came in. They are going home Tuesday. Sunday night they drove to Mountain Grove to the home of Carol Wise and Riley and Will and Ashley Collins and Chole and Michelle Campbell (Will’s Mom) of Cabool met them there for a visit. Ted and Karen Collins and Blaine, Melissa Causey and Autumn also visited there on Monday as did Bertha Scherer.

Linda and George Owens visited me awhile Sunday morning then Tracy, Hannah and Devin Griffith had lunch and visited Sunday evening.

Carol Wise and Riley came by briefly Monday evening. They, Linda and George Owens and Ann Collins had been to Rockbridge for dinner.

My deepest sympathy to the Dean Davis family, also, to Ada Beard in the loss of her sister and Peg Williams on losing her daughter.

Birthdays this month are: Hayden Snodgrass who will be 2 tomorrow, Sept. 3rd, Jimmie Hurst and Sharon Driskell Sept. 4th, Bailee Snodgrass, Sept. 7th, Andy Daugherty, Sept. 8th, Karen Collins, Sept. 9th, Cheryl Sartor, Sept. 10th, Bonnie Hurst the 18th, I think David Griffith the 24th and my brother, J.W. (Billy) Hurst the 28th. Happy Birthday to all.

God bless all until next time. Today’s thought: It’s hard to make a come back when you haven’t been anywhere.
