Vegetation is certainly growing fast, and for shrubs, they require a lot of pruning at my place. Catalpa trees are full of blooms, and soon there will be fishermen getting worms off the leaves.
Karen and Dave Davis were in Mountain Home last Tuesday for Dave’s doctor appointment. They came by on their way back home and brought an early Mother’s Day gift, a hanging basket with a pretty blooming plant, which I am enjoying. My granddaughter, Dana, came Tuesday evening and we picked the few cherries from my trees, so she and Chet could have a cherry pie. Chet’s Dad, J.C. Taylor, in West Plains has some serious back problems and the doctors advised him to not mow his yard or do strenuous jobs. Best wishes to him.
The family of William Dale Sanders has our sympathy. His funeral was Friday.
The Friendly Neighbors Extension Club met Thursday, May 3, at the Tecumseh Fire House for their monthly meeting with seven members present. They were Lily Branco, Edith McKinnon, Katie Hoverson, Alice Hurley, Karen N. Davis, Marie Woolsey and Linnie Ingram. They tacked quilts for burn-out victims, or other emergencies in this area. Minutes of the April meeting were read. We had no Treasurer’s report, except the DOW meeting plant auction shared by Douglas, Ozark and Wright counties brought a good amount.
At the June 4th meeting ribbons for the quilt show will be made, meeting at 10 a.m.
I had a letter from friend, Sylvia Carson, in North Pekin, Illinois last week. She and daughter, Theresa, plan to come back to Missouri at Memorial weekend.
I am waiting for the first hummingbirds to come and have my feeder ready. Perhaps the weather has been too unsettled for the little “hummers.”
Tammy (Gaddy) Childress and son spent the weekend with Ernestine Gaddy and attended church with her Sunday. They also stayed to enjoy the church potluck bi-monthly dinner with everyone.
Judy Breyne spent a night in Baxter County Regional Medical Center and goes Tuesday for tests. Best wishes.
Happy Birthday on May 11th to Roger Satterfield and his daughter, McKayla, will be 14, and a freshman in high school this year. Her birthday is May 15.
Happy 53rd brithday to Dan Moody.
Mearl and Roger Satterfield fished recently on Table Rock Lake, and won fourth place together and later Roger and a companion fisherman won second place.
Congratulations to all the high school graduates who will soon be graduating.
Here’s hoping army worms don’t invade the fields and pastures as they are known to be bad this year. I found a few around my yard.
A thought to remember is “You can only live once and if you live right, once is enough.”
An addition for a “happy birthday” wish is for Sidney Goettler, who will be 8 years old on May 14. She is the great granddaughter of Warren and Neoma Moody.
