Blairs celebrate 21st wedding anniversary


First thing, I want to thank Benji and Robin Jent of Elk Creek for helping me out Friday. My battery went dead and I was stuck on the road and they stopped and helped me. It made them late for Benji’s doctor’s appointment in Tennessee, so I just wanted them to know I really appreciated it.

Happy birthday to my great-niece Ava Golden Abbinanti. She turned 7 on August 13.

Happy birthday to her granny, my sister Terry Dixon of Carcassonne. It is on August 15. She would kill me if I give her age, let’s just say she is getting up there.
