I went to the County Line stew and singing on Saturday. There was a good showing of people, even though most of them weren’t from Miller Grove. The Miller Grove folks that I saw that day were R.A. Long; Faye Tipps; Mary Burns; Lewis Russell; Woody and Gail Garmon; Marsha Potts; Sara and Pacen Price; Jarmon, Vicki and Shyan Harris; Lewis Watts; and Howard Garrett. I think Woody was the chief stew-maker this year. He did a good job. The morning singing was very good. I left just before the afternoon singing started.
I received an e-mail from Ginger (Gilley) Heard the other day. She told me her mother, Faye Gilley, needs prayers and support from her Miller Grove friends. Ginger said that Faye has had to be hospitalized twice lately. First, she had a compression fracture in her back, and the second hospital stay was a result of a mild stroke and heart attack. Faye is in the Juliette Fowler Homes Rehabilitation Center in Dallas and is making progress going through their rehab program. Faye is now in her mid-90s and will be celebrating her birthday in a little over two months. Her birthday and my parents’ anniversary are the same day, March 18. Faye, Ed and their family have always been special folks, especially to my family.
Happy birthday to Patrick Dial on Jan. 3, Blake McGowan on Jan. 5, and my sister-in-law, Madison Darrow, on Jan. 6.
School started back Tuesday with a bang, and we had several new students enroll. After the second semester starts, it feels like the school year is half over, but we still lack a little while before we reach the halfway mark.
