Is it just me or has this been the longest week? I’ve noticed that it is starting to get dark earlier, and it seems like I can’t get as much accomplished because the days end a little sooner than they did back in the summer.
We have a few birthdays to celebrate this week. Happy birthday to Blake Smith and my Aunt Kathy Darrow on Oct. 8, and to Heather McCraw and Justin Darrow on Oct. 9. It is Heather’s fifth birthday. She is the daughter of Heath and Sheena (Petty) McCraw.
Last Friday Faye Tipps and I went to Golden to see about getting some sweet potatoes. That was my second trip to Golden lately. We had no luck again! One man told us that the farmers were having a hard time digging the potatoes because it has rained so much in the last few weeks. If nothing else Faye and I had a good supper at Dairy Queen in Emory. While we were there we saw several Miller Grove folks. Kay and Geneva Stripling came in when we were nearly finished eating. We all sat and visited for a good while. It was nice to see them. Geneva is 94 and she was telling us about mowing her yard. I hope I can mow my yard when I’m 94!
I have heard that Sam Speed hasn’t been feeling too well. R.A. Long is doing better now. He was in the hospital for a few days but is out and going strong again. Fran Sparks is still in the hospital. For those of you who have the Internet and look on Facebook, Sue Ann has created a Fran Sparks Support Group page where she keeps regular updates of how Fran is doing.
I saw Johnny and Mary Lynn Ferguson out walking the other afternoon. I stopped and talked to them for a few minutes. It seems like people stay so busy that they don’t even get to visit with their neighbors.
Coy Johnson brought the certificate for the cemetery from the Texas Historical Commission to me this week. Patsy Hallman had framed it and now we will hang it in the Methodist Church.
In the coming weeks I will have some news about the school’s annual Fall Carnival and a few other community events.
