Mystery helper shovels snow

Northeast Ohio

It’s that time again, yep it’s Wednesday, the day I start trying to write a few words for my article. I’ve got to get it ready for Catharine to pick up after work tomorrow.

I do hope all you good people are well and enjoying some nice weather. We’ve been having lots of sunshine but it has been cold.

Have only had three big snows and each one has been shoveled by an unknown who drives a truck with a snow blade. We have no idea who he is, but we really appreciate everything family and friends have done.

Red and I are both feeling some better but we know we’ll never be the way we were. As our doctor says, “You can’t stop Father Time.” We will both be 85 this year and have been together 66 years.

Before I forget, want to wish a very happy birthday to the following, and I sincerely hope I have the dates right: Carleta (Engle) Adams on March 3; Nellie Banks and Liz Gobolich on March 4; Gary Hunsucker on March 8; Mathew Edwards on March 9; Cody Wilson on March 10; Gladys ( Coots) Montgomery on March 13, Madonna Pass on March 23. We have two Ben Edward Sergents, one on March 21 and the other on March 25; Dora Jane Ray and Harold Emerson Sergent, both on March 25; Alfred Finley Engle on March 28; and Velma (Engle) Adams and Ronald Buford Sergent, both on March 31.

Wishing each and every one a very special day and may you have many, many more. Just don’t eat too much cake and ice cream.

It’s Thursday and I’ve had a busy day. The drugstore called and said my compression stockings were in, so I called Bill to see if he or Redia were free to drive me. Lo and behold, they were going to Sam’s Club, which is in the same mall. They picked me up at 12:30 and we got back at 3 p.m.

I got the stockings, we went for lunch, and they went to Sam’s Club while I waited in the truck. Bill had to get gas then we stopped and picked up some lunch for Red. I was worn out and had to take a nap.

We woke up this morning with a bit of snow on grassy areas but it soon disappeared and now the weatherman is predicting rain and snow for the next couple of days.

This has been a very unusual winter, which makes me wonder what will happen in March, April and May.

This hasn’t been a very good day for Red as he has not felt well at all. He did get a call from a niece while I was out, Carleta (Engle) Adams called. She is really good about checking in on us.

I got calls from sister Jeanie and brother Henry Warren this week. I really like hearing from family and friends.

Red talked to Jettie, who wanted to check on Chester, but she had a doctor’s appointment and didn’t go to see him today.

I have finally gotten around to writing a few notes, just hope whoever gets one can read what I wrote. I’m slow and sometimes forget how to spell a simple word, but I am getting better if I concentrate really hard.

It’s getting about time for Miss Catharine to show up, so I had better finish this. I will close with best wishes, love and prayers to everyone.
