Hopefully everyone got to see the beautiful trees, before the rain and wind came and spoiled it. Although there are places where the colors are hanging on. We received over two inches of rain and lots of leaves.

Last Monday was the last 7th and 8th grade basketball for this year and the last for the eighth grade students. The girls won, but the boys lost.

Norma Cross returned home Saturday evening after spending a week with our sister, Georgia Sanders in Claremore, OK.

Tony Richards took Kyle Thompson deer hunting Saturday and Sunday. It was about 20 degrees down here both mornings. Kyle has decided the afternoon and evenings were the best time to hunt. He got cold in the morning, but stuck in there. He got a shot at one, but it ran in the woods and they couldn’t find it.

Danny and Beth Maloney from Sparta came down for a visit Sunday afternoon. They brought me some sweet potatoes from their garden. They said they had visited Clinton and Dorothy Maloney, (Danny’s uncle). They are in a rest home in Springfield. They were both from this area, moving to Springfield years ago.

Attendance at Goodhope Baptist Church Sunday was 75. Specials were a beautiful song by Sue Adams and a piano solo by Mike, Annie and Kenny Goin’s son-in-law. He and his wife visit us once in a while and David Lafferty on the piano and Glen Dale Robertson on banjo. It was very good. We always enjoy our specials.

David Welsh our pastor preached a very good sermon from II Peter 3:8-14.

Sunday evening at Goodhope Baptist Church Brother Bob Husky and Ella Mae visited us. They have been down in Tennessee for several days to attend Bob’s sister’s funeral. She hadn’t been well for a long time and Bro. Bob sang and played a new song he wrote. We are always glad to have them in our service.

Lisa Woodall reported her dad, Larry Clayton was a little better. There was talk of him getting to come home from the hospital. Lynn has been up there with him.
