Another new baby Anniston Grace Wright arrived Friday, July 11, 2014, at the Medical Center in Bowling Green. She weighed 8 pounds and 1 ounce and was 20 and a half inches long. Her parents are Wesley and Janet Barrow Wright. She has an older brother to help keep her entertained. His name is Chandler. Her grandparents (that I know of) are Sheila and Jeff Barrow. Glad she is here and all are okay.
Last I heard Russell Johnson was in the local hospital. Glad he is back home.
I hear Jewell Wayne Johnson is in Creekwood and making some improvement. Maybe he can soon be able to be back home.
I saw in our local paper where a former pastor of ours has passed away. He is Brother Junior Maddox. He and Judy and the kids were here in 1959-1963, and as far as I’m concerned he was a fine preacher. I used to do their ironing. They would bring the clothes over in a little red wagon. I had not seen any of them for several years. I heard that Junior was in bad shape. Our sympathy to Judy and the kids.
Sue and James Fuller were to see his Dr. again Tuesday. Sue knows I like KFC grilled chicken legs, so she brought me 2, and they were good.
Almost August, so here are some known birthdays. The 6th is Charlie Delk, the 15th is Margaret Walton, the 17th is Elaine Turner, the 18th is Evelyn Dill, the 21st is Dr. Abby Singh (she is a dear), the 28th is Kay Kissellbaugh and the 30th is cousin Louise Henderson and Mallorie Whitson. Hope all have an enjoyable day. An anniversary this month is Sandra and Ray Sharp on the 22nd.
This was homecoming day in the life of Elk Lick church. The guest speaker was interim pastor Bro. Jim Harvey. His wife Val was with him. They are from Tennessee. The guest singers were the Salem Ridge quartet from Calrksville. They sure were good at harmonizing. There were some visitors. I will try not to name them as I’m sure I would forget someone.
Those that have been in here this week were Curtis Coursey with those good yellow tomato; Martha Williams with yellow tomatoes and yellow cherry tomatoes and corn; Judy Jernigan with red tomatoes, I’ve already canned some juice and tomatoes, and Lannie Jernigan with my supper on Tuesday night. I sure appreciate all the goodies.
Stanley and Elaine and the parents of Kayla moved she and Tara to Kansas City, Missouri on Saturday and came home on Sunday afternoon. The girls will be going to college in that area.
Have a good week and a smiling face.
