Arno – Hellen Blakey

Kay stopped last Monday and got my news and her eggs.

Michelle Blakey took me to Ozark to my doctor appointment last Tuesday. We got back in town at 1 and went by Clinkingbeard to Bonnie Phipps’ funeral. I got to see Linda Sue and Roy Freeman, Michael and Wendy Freeman, their son Matt, daughter Pam & Lonnie Crim. Son Logan is in the service and couldn’t make it for Bonnie’s funeral. Their two daughter’s Alexis and Paula, Cecilia Edwards, Debra and Ken Cederlind and her two daughters Courtnie and her fiancee Charley, Kayla and Moe Todd, Alaya and Lucas.

I just hope I didn’t leave someone out. I really enjoyed visiting with them all. When I left there, I stopped and got some medicine and groceries then came home.

Wednesday by 3 p.m. I had 1.7 inches of rain. Thursday I got 1 inch of rain and Sunday was just a shower and didn’t put any in the rain gage. 

I baked bread Wednesday.

Tara Coonce brought Jett to my house early Thursday morning then Trae Shelton picked him up in time to go to school. 

Rob Hennes and I went up to Shetler’s Cafe in Cabool where we met for Jerry’s Whirlwinds. We ate first then we had our meeting. I think there were 25 O.E.S. members there for Jerry Marsh.

Carrie Fitzgerald brought me some more medicine. Friday, I went to the bank, the store where I got my phone card, and some money on my gas card, then I filled up with gas. Mark brought me some eggs. Lee Aborn mowed my grass while I was in town. Violet came by Saturday and got their eggs. I washed 2 loads of clothes.

Sunday, Bro. Charles brought his message from 1 Samuel 16 chapter verses 1-23, “you don’t have to be big for God to use you.”

I went to Kelsey and Dustin Seaborn’s after I got home from church and took Sherry Blakey’s late birthday gift. Sherry came up to Kelsey’s to get it. Sherry wasn’t feeling good. Her energy was bad.

Let’s keep sick folks in our prayers. Some have doctor appointments, and surgery this week. My prayers and sympathy goes out to all who have lost a loved one. Keep praying for our nation, leaders, men and women in the service and their families, and the ones in training.

Sunday is our Old Folks Day at Mt. Tabor Church at 2 p.m. Bring songs, poems, or just bring yourself and a friend. Hope to see you there.
