Faye Tipps came back to Hopkins County last week after a sort stay in a Plano rehab facility. Her foot surgery seems to have helped, even though she isn’t able to walk on her foot yet.
Happy birthday to the following MG residents: Stevie Tipps on Nov. 22, Jessica May on Nov. 25, Brian Lennon on Nov. 26, and Lori Evans on Nov. 27.
Mary Lou and H.C. Akins will celebrate their 67th year of marriage on Nov. 25. Congratulations to them.
Ladies, please remember to contact Gail Garmon or Pattie Lennon if you plan on attending County Line’s annual Ladies Holiday Night, which is scheduled for Dec. 4 at 6 p.m. The deadline to notify these ladies is Nov. 28 (which is quickly approaching).
I met David Johnson and his son Nicholas, of Irving, in the cemetery Monday. We set a military grave marker for one of their ancestors. Some of the older folks in the community probably remember hearing their parents speak of Fletcher Jones. Fletcher was David’s relative. He served in the Civil War and later settled in Miller Grove. He was a justice of the peace and ran a cotton gin in the community. He also performed several marriage ceremonies for people in Miller Grove.
The VFD’s rodeo fundraiser wasn’t as big of a success as everyone had hoped. Most of the roping teams withdrew from the contest, but they still had some good barbecue.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and eats plenty of dressing and cranberry sauce. We have so much to be thankful for in our great nation. Take a minute Thursday and actually think about what all you have to be thankful for. If you really think about it the list can go on and on.
