We extend our heartfelt prayers and support to Lynne Jackson and family on the death of her husband, Danny, who fought a short battle with cancer. Cancer may have won the battle but Danny has won the war.
Glad to hear both Martha Robinson and Kathy Davenport are home following recent hospitalization.
Br-r-r-r-r-r! Two hard freezes one night and the next. What might winter hold for us?
It was a trip to the Pumpkin Patch for Auburn School grades K-4th on Friday, October 18th. Each one picked out a pumpkin to carry home and carve. Of course, each one picked out the pumpkin that they could barely carry but they had a lot of fun.
Fall Break for school was enjoyed by many who traveled to see the sights. Johnny, Crystal, Johnny and Tyger Kennedy went to warmer weather in Orange Beach, FL. It was off to the mountains for several others.
For P-pa and me it was off to Baptist Hospital (oops - St Thomas Midtown) in Nashville for a knee replacement on him. We came home Thursday of that week (reason for no news). And for the Reeds, it was off to a dental surgeon for Alayna who had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted and she kept on talking!
Jewell Dale of Tunnell Hill, GA is spending several days here.
My brother, Richard and Barbara Harris arrived Saturday for a weekend visit. They were on their way home from Branson, MO where they met our sister, Wanda Yule of Grandview, MO to enjoyed the sights sounds, and shows.

Our soup and sandwich guests for that night were Richard and Barbara, Jewell and Amaieah Morrison.
You could tell it was Halloween at Auburn School Thursday! It appeared the staff was having more fun than the students!
