January weather has been above average most of the time but we may expect winter weather yet in February and March. Hopefully not too extreme! Propane prices have managed to stay within reason. Wood prices are about as usual so far, but more scarce.
A real life story happened this past week when Albert Latham, son of Jon and Carol Latham, who is 6 years old, trapped his first bobcat on the Latham homestead and what a joy for a boy so young.
Lilly Ridge Friendly Neighbors meets at the Health Ctr. Basement Thursday, Feb. 6, at 10 a.m. Our programs will be about Indian Trails and should be interesting as some have ancestors who were on the Trail of Tears and connections with that time era. My late husband Glen’s grandmother was one of those I believe. Should do some researching on that subject.
At our club on Feb. 6, we should learn Indian tribes dress designs, fabrics used, and tribal customs. Paralee Rea is to visit our meeting and present the program.
We will meet at the Tecumseh Fire House for DOW April meeting our Tri-County semi annual get together and have Douglas and Wright Co. visiting here for the day.
Happy birthday to Carol King on her January birthday, as well as all of those who celebrated anniversaries and birthdays. There were several at church who were honored Sunday. Happy anniversary to Bud and Carol McClendon celebrating their 56th!
The Friendly Neighbors Club donated two blankets to burn-out victims this year and will be making extra ones to have on hand to donate.
Kristin Luebbert has been spending a few weeks with me and has kept busy also helping sand and paint in her sister Karen and Dave Davis’ house. They are getting ready to move in. Dana Taylor has also been helping them.
Jaycee Davis has visited Karen and Dave Davis as her Dad Keith was called on a job for a few days. She has had the experience of a few inconveniences such as outdoor outhouses, as work has been going on doing some remodeling and being a “city girl” it took some extra courage to accept.
The families of Joe Bill Blisard, Loretta Crisp Evans, Hazel Hanke (who was Leslie Hicks sister), and Mary Wolverton, all have our sympathy in their loss.
Kris and I along with Dana Taylor were in Mtn. Home Monday for my doctor appointment. I’m also getting used to wearing new glasses after cataract surgery recently.
Many thanks to the Herald office for my nice gifts. I appreciate them.
