Miller Grove News for Dec. 28, 2011

E-mail Print PDF
I hope everyone had a good Christmas. I didn’t do too much this year, other than cook. And if you cook, that means you have to clean up the mess. I think it takes longer to clean up the kitchen than it does to eat the food that you have spent all day cooking.

News this week is slow, but it always is between Christmas and New Year’s. I guess everyone is settled and trying to recuperate from the holiday rush. Mary Lou Akins told me that they had 38 at their house for Christmas. That’s a house full! I know they all enjoyed themselves. She also said they had a treat when the carolers from County Line Baptist Church came by to share some Christmas carols with them last Wednesday.

As always, I do have a few birthdays to report. Happy Birthday this week to Bettie Garrett on Dec. 25; Leasa Petty on Dec. 27; Barbara (Millsap) Potts, Geneva (Long) Basye, Belle (Davis) Renshaw, and my Uncle Ronny Darrow on Dec. 28; and Chris McGowan and Coy Johnson on Dec. 30.

Happy 26th Anniversary to Ken and Phyllis (Renshaw) Haywood on Dec. 27.

The Stracener family received an early Christmas gift this year. On Dec. 12 Reagan Diane Stracener was welcomed into the world by her parents, Willie Bob and Lauren Stracener, and big sister, Rylie Stracener. She was born at Hopkins County Memorial Hospital. I talked to proud grandmother Cathy Stracener the other day and she said that mother and baby were doing just fine. Grandparents are Randy and Cathy Stracener of the Greenview community and great-grandfather Leeman Stracener of the Shirley community. Congratulations to all of the family!

This is the last Miller Grove News Column for the year of 2011. I hope everyone has a safe New Year’s eve. Don’t forget about the County Line Stew that is traditionally held on Jan. 1 each year. Also, remember to eat your black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day!

As you travel the highways and byways, don’t forget that all roads lead home and back to Miller Grove. Please send me any newsworthy information. My e-mail address is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
