Howdy and I hope you have all had a good start in the new year. So far ours has been pretty good.
Our grandson David was home and he, his mom, Valerie, and Catharine spent quite a few hours with us. David even brought dinner, chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy and coleslaw, and we cooked a pot of green beans. We exchanged Christmas gifts as David was on the road, and then he gave Red a tool kit and a gag gift. Funny! I got a Longaberger basket with lasagna pan to fit, pink for cancer research, and a cookie jar house with cookies.
Remember my mentioning the young man who grew up two doors from us? Sadly, he died in the wee hours Sunday morning. His funeral was Friday. My heart goes out to his family, especially his mom. I know what it’s like to lose a child. It’s something you never get over.
Jim Cornett and the 1955 graduating class of Stuart Robinson School are searching for one of their own who seems to be missing, Faye Dunn Little.
Her last known address was Tiffin, and she was married to a Little who died awhile back. If any children or friends of Faye Dunn Little from Carbon Glow knows where she is or has an address for her, please contact Jim Cornett at email@example.com. Jim and the entire class will appreciate any help you can give. I know Tiffin isn’t all that far from Lorain and my address, phone number and e-mail address are at the end of this column, so if you want to get in touch with me feel free to do so and I will pass any news on.
So far this year our weather has been on the mild side with a few days of unseasonal temperatures. Should anyone want to complain, the only thing would be the cold winds and that I can handle by just staying inside. Unless we have to be out and about, like Tuesday, when I had to drive Red to his doctor’s appointment. He got a fairly good report.
I talked to Georgia recently, and she is still having back trouble and some sinus problems. She said it seemed to be getting some better.
Well, today we are getting some snow but according to the forecast it won’t be enough to brag about or complain about. Oh well, whatever we get it will be all right. Nothing we can do about it anyway.
I talked to Jeanie this week and they thoroughly enjoyed the holidays. Little ones really do make a difference.
I cooked a pot of soup beans yesterday and today I plan to fry potatoes, make cornbread and am debating whether to fix mustard greens or kraut. I like both with beans and potatoes. I may let Red make up my mind for me. He just did, we have a quart of homemade kraut some of the family brought up on a visit.
I had myself a nap and when I awakened, guess what? Yep, it’s a white world out there. I just hope Catharine has no trouble getting home from work.
Redia called and said she and Bill were both okay. Of course he was working at his store, ‘Engle’s.’ I do believe he works more and harder now than he did before his retirement.
I think my brain is still napping so I might as well give up for now and say so long until next time. Wishing everyone a warm happy week and may all enjoy peaceful nights and pleasant dreams. Love and prayers.
