Enjoyed a surprise visit from my oldest great granddaughters, Jo Ann, Heather and Rebecca Renfro. Hadn’t seen them in a long time, six months best my calendar records show me. They hadn’t been here in so long everything was new to them and they found “it all” and dragged it all out. It was so good to see them, but they are so full of energy they were still going strong and I had given out before they left. So good to see them, maybe it won’t be so long before they come again.
I have been working on appliquéing butterfly quilt blocks, I try to keep busy on some kind of handwork all the time. Getting so I can do some housework, I’m just not strong and get to shaking if I don’t take time out and rest. I have a doctor’s appointment on Wednesday and hope the weather permits me to go. Haven’t been anywhere in so long except a trip to town an hour or so Saturday. Elton and Louise Short bring the mail and goodies every day.
I want to wish a happy birthday to my grandson, Derek Lee Renfro on Feb. 17, and Ina Jo Lee will be 80 on Saturday, Feb. 20.
Betty Snow has moved from Health South in Fort Worth to Crescent Senior Care in Weatherford for a few weeks. She is in room 401 but doesn’t have a phone hooked up as yet.
Don’t forget that the election site has changed for precinct 2 in Perrin from the County Barn to the Perrin Church of Christ fellowship room on Eberhart. The election is Tuesday, March 2. Shirley Kuhn is the election judge, so if you need more information you can contact her or call the courthouse.
It’s Monday and we are having thunder, rain and lightning – almost knocked me from my chair, what a scare. Don’t want anymore of that!
What a wonderful surprise when the Brazeal family came by after church services Sunday and brought us a plate from the First Sunday Fellowship. So nice to see them. They brought me a wonderful lunch and lots of desserts. Zip, Sherri, Timothy, Samuel, Elizabeth and Thomas Brazeal brought it and visited awhile. They brought me up to date on things. Enjoyed them so much. Sherri is going to take me to see the doctor on Wednesday. Their children have grown so much.
For lots of years we lived neighbors to Laverne Caudill in Perrin. They moved from here and I had lost touch with them. Last week I began thinking of her, looked for Caudills in the phone book and no luck. So I decided I would use my news column to see what I could do and asked if anyone knew her whereabouts. Sunday afternoon I got a call from Laverne, what a thrill! Had a long visit and we planned a get-together when the weather begins to cooperate a little, and I get stronger so I am not so shaky. Then we can “catch-up” on lots of lost years.
On Sunday we will have our secret grandparents revealing on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, following the worship service. I’m planning on being there. We are anxious for that and see who has been so nice and sent note’s and gifts, it’s been neat.
The February Angel Food box money is due this Sunday, Feb. 14. The food order will be delivered on Saturday, Feb. 27, from 8:30 a.m. 9:30 a.m. The February menus are up around the local businesses in Perrin. We got a notice from Angel Food that the boxes will not go up in price, but another item will be added to the box making a total of 17 items for $30. It’s a bargain as well as a blessing. If you haven’t tried it, contact Fred Mealio at (940) 798-4455. Menus are available for download on Angelnet.org.
If you have any news either about your family or any other community happenings, give me a call at 798-2235.
