Hello, and happy Thanksgiving. I hope everyone had a great day. We did. I cooked a big dinner and we had company. Valerie and her two just left, David just happened to have time off , and of course Catharine lives here.
I don’t know when David will be leaving. He could get a call any time saying he has a load to deliver or one to be picked up. I talked to Bill and Redia, and they decided to have their dinner at Golden Corral, Redia’s favorite place to go when they decide to eat out.
Charles called Red this morning and they were all well. Their daughter and granddaughter, Darla and Abby were visiting from Tennessee and they were expecting Delores’s two sisters, Betty Sue of Flat Gap, Va., and Patsy from Eolia. I’m sure they had a great time just eating and yakking.
I haven’t heard from any of my family today, and I must admit I didn’t call. I was busy and I’m sure most of them had company and I didn’t want to intrude.
Well, I did it again. I was outside Tuesday and happened to glance toward mustard patch. It was so green I just had to go check it out, it being a fairly mild day. I grabbed myself a grocery bag and in a very short time it was full. I wanted to pick more but a cold wind started blowing, sending me back in a hurry.
Two of Red’s nieces have called, Lena Stallard of Pound, Va., and Carleta Adams of Eolia. It’s always so good to hear from them, but sorry to hear that both have been feeling poorly. Get better quick, girls.
Old Santa himself will soon be making his rounds. Have you written your letters to him yet?
I want to say hello and send get well wishes to Pete and Gladys Smith of North Carolina. I really, really hope both of you are feeling much better.
Also, get well wishes to Clara Pfister in Michigan, who was to undergo surgery last week. A big thank you to Kathy Hofmann in Erlanger, and also Mildred Perdue in Sterling, Va. I really appreciate the cards and your kindness.
Richard and Georgia stopped by for a short visit after leaving the Resor- Sergent Thanksgiving at the fellowship hall of North Lake Baptist Church, where they belong. Richard had a slice of stack cake and they took some home with them. I must admit it did turn out pretty good, even though I cut the recipe in half.
I’ve decided I’m just too stuff ed to make much sense, so I will stop for this time.Wishing everyone pleasant days for Christmas shopping and hope you find whatever you might be looking for. Have a fantastic week, happy days, peaceful nights. Sending love and prayers your way.
