It’s time for bow hunting, and deer are plentiful in our area. Tim Williams, nephew of Jerry Miller who is from Louisiana, killed a 9-point buck. He recently bought Mearl and Beulah Sattefield’s home. Mark Green from the gulf of Mississippi was also here for bow hunting.

The annual Thanksgiving service of the Ministerial Alliance will be hosted by Lilly Ridge Church at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 19. Ladies meet at Thursday mornings at the church for Bible study at 10 a.m.

Best wishes to Bobby and Imogene Grisham with health problems and many others who are ill.

Flu shots are being given now.

Some weather predication are for a cold winter, and the wooly worms have put on a heavy coat.

Lyndon and Linaia Pitcock and Marlyn Pitcock helped with some building repairs last weekend at my place. It was good to have their help and their visit also. Granddaughter Dana Taylor helped with jobs and mowing grass.

Monday evening the Eastern Star chapter meeting honored veterans and had their regular meeting. Elsie Ponto is missed by everyone.

I appreciate Dana Taylor for sharing her sweet peppers with me. They are different colors as they ripen.

I have pen pals in California, Indiana and New Jersey, which makes life more interesting. Ginger Peters enjoys hearing about the Ozarks since she lived here a few years and was active in the Friendly Neighbors Club. The club met last Thursday, Nov. 6, and we have new members. We miss Maxine Smith, who is still in therapy at the hospital.

Until next time, I’ll say happy holidays, everyone.
