Greetings from The Antioch Community.
I saw Jessica “White” Robey at Walmart last week and also saw Linda and Larry Chapman. Sure was good to see them. Jessica and Larry were both raised in our community. Larry and his brother Gary were twins, so I have a hard time telling them apart.
Some of our Tops group went to Arby’s and ate lunch Wednesday. And Dale Currier and his daughter came in to eat. Dale and wife Carol used to come to the Antioch Baptist Church. He would play his French Harp for us and it sure was pretty. They have moved in with their daughter in Elkton. Dale said he still played the harp. He was using a walker. His wife Carol was at work, so didn’t get to see her. They were a very sweet couple. Was good to see him.
Chad Johnson came by one day last week and took Dolores Harris over to the house of the late Odessa Johnson. They have remodeled it and Dolores said it sure was pretty.
Happy late birthday to Miss Regan Christian, who turned 11 years old on Sunday the 8th. Her mom had a birthday party for her Saturday night with her family on both mom’s and dad’s family. Grandma Sheila said there was a large crowd there. They enjoyed good food and a good time being together. My, how fast they grow up!
The weather has turned cool on us again, but guess as it is November already that it is time for cooler weather. I just dread the winter months.
They honored Veterans at church Sunday morning. Gave them a gift in appreciation of them serving our country.
My oldest son is a veteran. He was in Vietnam. I am so thankful that he came back safe.
The Seniors will leave the church at 10 a.m. Friday morning on Nov. 20. Melba will be driving the church bus for us and she is a very good driver.
Melba Gibbs was the only one who got to attend the Baptist Women’s World Day of Prayer last Monday at the Bellview Baptist from our church. We sure are sorry that we didn’t get to go.
Congratulations to Barbara and Grady Belies on their 47th wedding anniversary on Monday. Hope they have many more.
I am sorry that neighbor passed away Friday night at St. Thomas Hospital. Randall “Cotton” McKinney. He was just 60 years old and had retired in January. His brother Ricky lives across the field from me. Randal’s nephew, Bradley McKinney, sure made a good talk at the funeral. He sure will be missed. My son rented his farm. We send Heartfelt Sympathy to the family.
We also send sympathy to the family of Betty Wilcutt.
Looking for someone who won’t disappoint you? Look to Jesus.
My sister Sue and James came by Saturday bringing me some turnip greens. They sure were good. Thanks!
Have a good week.
