Personally from Perrin

Visitors bring holiday foods, music

Had a visit from the Advent Christian Church members last week. They brought fruit, candy, nuts, etc. Such a nice bunch of food. I have always had a sack of groceries from them every month, and appreciate it so much.

We also had a visit from Mrs. Self and her pre-K class one day last week. They came in a bus, which Mrs. Self’s husband was driving. Those kids were so cute, so small; they came to the fence and sang Christmas songs. Last year her fifth grade class came, so I was surprised to see pre-K kids. We enjoyed them so much.

Billie Gillespie called me to tell me that she is selling out her stock of Home Interiors and Gifts. The company has gone out of business and she’s selling her inventory at half price or less. Call her at (940) 798-2735 or (940) 452-1242 to see all her stock. From what she said she has a large variety of items at good prices.

The Perrin-Whitt school dismissed for the year Friday. School will resume Monday, Jan. 4. Hope the kids enjoy their long holiday vacation.

I don’t get to see many people. Elton and Louise Short bring my mail every day and do other things for me. They are a great help. I enjoy receiving mail and getting calls, so keep me informed of any community news or family happenings.

So glad to see some warm days. We have had enough bad, cold weather. We have one tree that has just now started loosing its pretty red leaves. We have enjoyed it so much this fall.

My brother-in-law, Claude Renfro, of Weatherford, talks with me most every day. He is doing good, still on a walker. He received a pacemaker because his heart was out of rhythm. He has sons and grandsons staying with him helping him out.
