Wednesday, Sept. 11, is the 18th anniversary of 9/11. Please remember that tragic day in 2001 when terrorists attacked our country, causing the deaths of over 3,000 and injuring more than 6,000. It was one of the darkest days in our history. So many lives changed because of that tragic day. Remember in prayer those who lost loved ones that day and survivors still battling long term health effects. We must never forget. God Bless America.
My daughter, Cindy, visited last week. We had a good time together as we did some shopping, baking and walking. We had some good mom and daughter talks. The week sure went by fast, and I hated to see her go back to Illinois. We attended the Masseyville-Woodville Fire Department’s barbeque fundraiser on Labor Day. The Fire Department members thank everyone who came out to support their fundraiser, which was very successful. Donnie Patterson reports that 24 shoulders were cooked, and they sold out quickly. Of course, the cakewalk is always fun, and many went home with more than one cake. Congratulations to Judy Cranford, who won the country ham. I was not able to stay for the drawing, but later in the afternoon, Donnie and Nancy Patterson stopped by. What a surprise! I won the raffle for the $100 bill. I think Nancy was as excited to present it to me as I was to receive it. It just made my day!
Elvie Lee Sanders recently celebrated her 92nd birthday with a luncheon at home hosted by her children, Janice Schultz, Pam Clayton and Steve Sanders. Others in attendance were her sisters, Ellna and W.T. Roland, Barbara and Glen Smith, Ann and Bob Morris, nieces Cindy Lucas and Susan Shinall and her sister-in-law Dorothy Patterson.
Birthday wishes go out to Bonice Martin on Sept. 19. I misplaced my birthday list a while back, but I would love to acknowledge all birthdays. Call me with yours, and I will start a new list.
I went to the Farmers Market in Henderson and came home with fresh green beans, okra, tomatoes, zucchini squash and bell peppers. My fresh veggies made for a tasty supper. Soon they will have fresh shelled peas. Stop by on Friday and support the vendors.
The muffin lady has been out and about sharing freshly baked Zucchini-Apple muffins. Those visited include Bonice, Erma Lee, Jo Ann and Elvie Lee and family. I also enjoyed visiting with Ronnie and Ladelle Clark this week and taking them lunch.
Remember in prayer Ricky Hearn, Elvie Lee Sanders, Arlan Porter, Walt and Ann Bennett, Richy Butler, Ronnie and Ladelle Clark, Mildred Smith, Mary Alice and Martha Autry, Ann Morrison, Bonice Martin, Erma Lee Morris, Peggy Whitman, Sue Greene, Jim Ruth, W.T Roland, Peggy Lard and all the caregivers. If you would like to add or remove a name, please call me.
