Thanksgiving

We should not speak from want, but learn to be content in whatever circumstances we’re in. Every drop of blood. He she He she for you and me! Love grew where the blood fell.

Scott Cheek has been here in attendance with his dad but had to return to Texas on Business. He is such a fine boy! Alan Thompson motored up to Kansas for a bird hunting recently. He was even gone on his and Trisha’s Golden Wedding Anniversary but they were surprised on the 18th with a party given by their girls at Aun Lannie’s home. Very nice but had the voting polls so we were unable to attend.
Mike McDonald from Monroe/Florida come by on Friday for a visit at the cemetery and by the store for a visit. It was good to see him.
