Last Wednesday, I looked out of the window and saw a big UPS freight truck backing down my drive way. I thought, “What in the world? What would be coming to me on an 18-wheeler?” Come to find out, it was the school’s historical marker.
It has finally been delivered after about 1 1/2 years of waiting. If I am correct, Miller Grove is the only school currently in operation in Hopkins, Rains or Hunt counties that has been designated a historical site.
Friday, Faye Tipps and I made a quick trip down to Terrell to buy a few peaches at Ham’s Orchard. The peaches were good, and so was the ice cream that they were selling.
Monday, all of the Sparks family was at the hospital to welcome their new family member. Ray and Jacque’s little boy, Seamus Ray Sparks, was born at 4:41 p.m. He weighed 8 pounds, 14 ounces, and was 21 inches long. Proud grandparents are Stephen and Fran Sparks and Kenneth and Charlotte Hayes, all of Miller Grove. Little Seamus was also welcomed by several aunts and cousins. And yes, from the Facebook pictures, he looks just like Ray.
Happy birthday this week to Sue Ann Sparks on July 22, Stacie Evans on July 23, Lindsey Bunch on July 24, Patrick Dial and my aunt Ruthie Millsap on July 25, and Josh Kerby and Julie Smith on July 28.
Happy 66th anniversary to Lewis and Bobbie Ruth (Garrett) Woodard on July 27.
