Brashear News for Nov. 24, 2010

I would like to give a big thank you to a large group who made the chili supper such a success on Saturday night. Before the evening started, I had a panic attack. I was not sure there would be any people to show up, no desserts to serve, or enough door prizes. Well, everyone came through. We had about 50 people show up. We made over $500 which will go toward the upkeep of the Community Center.

Thanks to Barbara Stewart, Louise Stewart, Joanne Potter, Naomi Watts, Mary Helen Stroh, Carolyn George and Pat George for their wonderful desserts. Thanks to the cooks, Larry Vaughan, Lewis Russell, Sonny Stewart and Gene George. If you know these men, you know they had a lot of input. They were there to taste test, stir, and basically tell us what to do. A special thank you to Gene George for his pot we used to cook the chili. Joanne Potter’s cake was so pretty we made it a door prize. Great cook! Thanks to Kim McCool and Shannon Matlock for their donation of $30 gift certificate to their hair salon, thelookhairdesign.com. They were great door prizes. I also got to meet some more new people, Clint George, Barbara Stewart’s daughter, and others.

Now, to thank two special ladies that made this supper such a success: Linda Almon and Carolyn Vaughan. They took of their own time to shop, cook the meat, gather up the door prize items, make some desserts, clean up — basically, a little of everything. We hope they stay around to make the next event a big success, too. Watch your paper, the radio or the store for dates of our next event.

Elton Stewart wanted me to tell everyone thanks for the notes, calls and cards wishing him well. Louise told me he is doing great, just not as fast he wants. He walks up and down the driveway to strengthen his back. He told me the doctor told him he should be back to normal by Valentine’s. Let’s hope he is right.

Barbara Stewart showed me where a dog bit her, and she has a big scar. She found out there is not much she can do about the dog. She was told because we are a small community there is no leash law. Basically, beware of strange dogs.

Did anyone hear the coyotes last night? They were very close. Our blue heeler chased one right before sundown. I did not know he was that brave.

While exercising Tuesday morning around 5:30, we heard the geese going over. I wonder how cold it will get by Thanksgiving? This warm weather is really something for November. The leaves are really turning and falling.

Birthday update: Twilla Scroggins, Nov. 24; Connie Hall, Nov. 25; Carol Baxter and Lori Evans, Nov. 27; Lew White, Dec. 3; and Jeremy Darrow, Dec. 5.

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and I just want everyone to pause and say thanks for all of their blessings. I heard a great idea where you make a Blessing Tree that you hang notes for things you are thankful for.
