It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.

Well, due to the snowy and slick roads, several churches canceled services on Sunday, and Walnut Grove being one of them.

We defintelyly have had some pretty but treacherous snow around Ava, Mo. This week, I think it was about a foot and  a half deep, but the weather reporters said only 7 or 8 inches of snow. I don’t know whether to believe them or my calculations of appearance to me. Just kidding but the snow is beautiful even though the workers have to get out in it. My grandson-in-law, being one of the MoDot workers working tirelessly over nights to try to keep the roads safer. I appreciate you Shawn Johnson of Fair Grove area.

We had a surprise the other night when our neighbor so graciously came over with his bobcat and cleared our driveway.

We did have some visitors this week. Vern and Kathleen Deatherage came over to check on us and Beth Stafford and Johnathon Snelson came oveer and brought supper to us one night. Bob and Linda McCleary came over on Monday evening to visit and Linda played the piano and we sang some songs and remembered Uncle Mack Miller playing his mandolin.

We are so blessed to have friends and family who love and check up on us. If they can’t come see us they call us.

I have been calling Aunt Violet Morris  and checking on her and Uncle Hugh. Aunt Violet is about the same but they say Uncle Hugh is going downhill  every day.

Delmar and I got out and went to McDonald’s where we visited with several friends. McDonald’s is so gracious to us oldies to allow us to sit and visit. We appreciate them.

Until next week remember to check on us elderly folks especially the homebound ones who live alone.
