Hello from our little community where I hope you had a great week. We have a good place to live in and are grateful for it. However, this past week has proved that sometimes we tend to think we live in a safe area, which has proved a horrible tragedy can occur. A tragedy when a young man, for some reason, took a pot-shot at an ex-girlfriend, luckily not killing her, but wounding her. There were other stories of windows shot out and another where a bystander was wounded. The greatest tragedy was the young man refused to obey police and as a result lost his life. What a sorrow for his family to face.
So as we know, God can be the one to trust for help in this trying time. So may I say God bless you at this time and to our brave policemen facing such experiences.
The first thing I did was call the sheriff’s office and said, please was any of our police hurt? Thank God they were all okay. We sure hope for better weeks to come.
My sincere sympathy to the Harris family.
I believe I have the date right, March 15th arriving in Charleston S.C. was 5 lb., 13 oz. and 18 and 3/4 inches long Scarlett Dawn Sweeney. Her parents are John and Jessica Sweeney. She has 3 older sisters to help keep her entertained. Kyla. Michaela and Jenessa. Her local grandparents are Elaine and Stanley Fleming. As I write this Elaine is out there to be of help. She, more than likely, will be home by press time.
Lannie Jernigan brought me lunch from Ranger’s Auto Supply Saturday. Ranger has this big ta-do once each year and it is always good.
Saw in the church bulletin where Buddy Price is to have heart surgery on the 28th. Hope he does well and will soon be back home and into his usual activities.
I went to Marvine Borders 90th birthday party at the activities building at church Saturday. Got to see all the kids, as well as other people. Bob and I and she and Thurmon were friends all these years. Of course Bob and Thurmon are no longer with us.
They had decorated beautifully and of that punch. I think I kept them busy bringing more punch. Knowing her of course, she enjoyed every minute. Oh, and we all sang the song to her. Happy birthday.
Our sympathy to Ruby Porter and family in the death of her husband Joe Porter.
This coming Sunday is Easter. Hope it is a warmer day then this past Sunday morning. It was quite chilly. To me it was just plain cold. I am so cold natured. But won’t be long till we are saying, gosh ain’t it hot? We are a complaining people.
Have a good week and may God bless. Smile!
