Start of a new week and if you like rain, well, you're gonna get it according to all accounts from our weather forecasters. Maybe up to 3 inches in some areas before it ends around Wednesday is what they are saying. This is definitely to be a bummer of a week, if we get that much rain. The rain gauge ready and waiting for this rainfall to begin.
Spotted Alene Ferrell out for a walk the other evening as I was going down to my homeplace. Glad she is doing so well after the heart valve surgery.
Betty Gunter and family have returned from a 9 day vacation to Gulf Shores, Alabama. Great time was had by all. Betty's cats Miss Kitty and Misty so glad when she came to pick them up from a friend's house where they had been staying while Betty was away.
After church Sunday stopped by Glenda's store (DeKalb Market) and saw Zach Arnold while I was there. He's still the same Zach. It's been a few years, since I had seen him. Naturally, we talked about "Aubrey" as he's still missing the big guy like the rest of us. No one like Aubrey as he was in a league all his own - a man of integrity and honesty that everyone looked up to that knew him. Saw Ella and she was doing fine. Jackie, "Aubrey's Yankee", has retired but Ella keeps in touch with her and said Jackie sends her love to me.
I left out an important birthday for the month of September. Ralph Harvey from Short Mountain Market had a birthday on September 27th.
November birthdays to let you know about: Lacy Neal 7th, Denise Stanton 9th, Bobby Taylor 11th, Lori Ramires 23rd, our granddaughter Brittany Little 24th, and Brian Hullett 25th.
Happy Anniversary wishes for Ralph and Debby Harvey on November 21st. It will be their 3rd.
Neighbor of mine told me he has seen that "invisible cow" at the edge of the mountain the other evening. It appeared in front of him then was gone in an instant. It was a few days before the neighbor could tell me about this encounter as it scared him pretty bad. Glad it was him that saw it and not me. Asked if the "Little green men" were there, too, and he said not a trace of them anywhere. They may have already turned in for the night in that devil's hold where they are dwelling and the cow was probably taking the scenic route in getting there, if I were guessing. Wondering if I should call Clyde and ask him, if he's seen anything? -- as he's told me in the past he thinks he's seen a lot of things but not really sure about it. I'm going to let this one slide and save my dime. Clyde has told me I can put anything in the column about him as long as it wasn't the truth.
Ruth Brown and son Jeff doing better at this time, but do keep them in prayer. Ruth's sister Peggy and the rest of the family okay.
People we need to uplift in prayer: Wanda Zeh, Fay Pitts, Kathy Martin, Denise Stanton, Edith Miller, Tracy Neal, Carlon and Mai Nell Melton, Billy Eudean Pack, Gracie Bratcher, Chloe Evelyn Bogle, and Donna Lawson.
Gotta ask if, you like me picked out "your favorite candy" when selecting from all the different varieties for Halloween? Of course I did, too. This just in case there will be any leftover candy as sometimes that does happen and you know how awful it would be if it wasn't the kind of candy you liked. Pigging out especially on candy really not too bad a thing is it? This is just for one night only so I say we can exercise and get these "few ounces" we gained off in no time at all, if we can put as much in the exercising as we did in devouring that candy.
Was gonna get out and sit on our patio today and get some more cleaning done on it but soon discovered just way too cool out there with the wind and the rain blowing in. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.
If you have any news for the column, just give me a call at 615-563-4429. Have a great day!
