Norma Cross and I visited with Goldie Miller, Irene Richards and Peggy Jenkins on Tuesday. Peggy had an accident on Friday as they were leaving the annual fall festival in Mountain Grove with the area nursing homes. They called Randy and he came and got her and took her to the E.R. in Springfield. She broke her upper arm. They couldn’t put a cast on it. She was in a lot of pain for a while. Norma, Kenny and Seth Hunt and I went to see her Saturday. The first thing she said to us was to tell us she had won three awards at the festival.
Helen Dobbins was in the hospital a few days last week. Dick and I stopped to see her Thursday. Friday Dick and I took Kyle Thompson to Branson to see the Pierce Arrow Show. We stopped in Taneyville to have lunch. They have good fried fish at the little café. Kyle stayed with us over the weekend while Kelly and DeAnn Thompson took Kinsey Thompson, Katie Jenkins, Kailey Thompson and Autum Groth to St. Louis. Kelly, Kinsey and Katie went to some spook houses while DeAnn, Kailey and Autumn went to watch the Justin Bieber Show. They took Katie and Kinsey to Tan Tara to attend the F.F.A. meeting Sunday evening. They will be there two days.

They took Tony Richards to the E.R. at Cox Hospital Wednesday after spending the day there. They found he had food poisoning. He had been suffering for days. Lisa brought him home that evening.

Danny and Connie Johnson picked Freeda Richards, Betty Jenkins and Lenore Burton up Sunday the 21st and they all attended Bonnie Haden, Jack’s wife’s family reunion in Lebanon, MO. ,Bonnie is from a large family so there was a big number there.
