Spa

October 11, 2012

After a wet Monday and Tuesday, the weather has been beautiful and as usual this time of the year a wee bit chillier.


Last Saturday evening, the Scarbrough family met at the city/county park for a family time, and lots and lots of eats. There were 28 enjoying the time together. They were Glenn and Helen Porter, Rex and Dianne Porter and Cole, Rhonda and Eric Arimstead and Morgan, their grand-kids Jason and Hailey and Jordan, Wilford and Jerri Scarbrough and Hunter, Steve and Cheryl Roberts and Daylon, Edwin and Dorris Scarbrough, Tracey Woods and Kasey, Darren and Christy Scarbrough and Marty Scarbrough. Later it got cooler, had to get their jackets out.


I’m always moving someone and that is what I did (again) when I said Shirley Coursey was in the local hospital and as of Friday was still in Springfield. Hope she can soon be back home and feeling lots better. That gal has had a rough timer of it.


Margie Latham visited her daughter Vicki Martin at Belton on day last week. Vicki is a young lady that has a lot of medical problems, wish for her better health.


Another reminder of October 20th, the annual Johnson (whoever) time together. This will be held at the Activities building behind the church. We are expecting to see some we have not gotten to see for a few years. Usually we eat around 5 p.m. and we have lots to eat too.


Uh oh, first Sunday in November is the time for the switcheroo on the clocks, to again complain (pet peeve), leave the clocks alone at one time or the other. Whew, to old to climb chairs.


Have you taken a good look at the trees? Changing colors and leaves falling, which also means rake leaves or just hope the good Lord lets the wind blow and get rid of them that way. The only thing with that, they usually blow back. Oh well, whatever works, just do it I guess.


Arriving back home safe and having a good time are David and Stacey Jernigan, Kaitlyn, Madison and Cassidy after a week in Florida, having a good time out from school.


Our sympathy to Don and Vivian Neagle as both have lost people in their lives this past week.


Cousin Loie Earl (Farmer) Brown has had a procedure done this past week and seems to be doing better. Keep it up.


Carrie Belcher had surgery a couple of weeks ago and got the report from her Dr. which was very good, thank goodness.


Her brother Roger Belcher had surgery in Nashville, I believe this past week and seemed to be doing okay, however, no report as of yet, hope it is good too.


Margie Latham and Maritza Grant visited with Junaita Silvey in Maple Manor facility in Greenville Friday. She seemed to be feeling fairly well and anxious to be back home and actually there is no place like home, for sure.


Julia and Bryan Ellis of Memphis visited this week with her parents George and Beverly Whitson.


Helen and Glenn Porter attended the court house singing Sunday afternoon and he also went to the car show awhile. Had a good afternoon.


mark and Kay Thornberry and kids Colton and Elizabeth have returned from a trip to the Indian reservation in South Dakota. They took a load of needed stuff that they so badly need and Liz said it was very chilly. I understand they have very rough weather in that area. I understand they help with the unloading. They made a trip to that same area last year, glad they are back home.]


Those that have been in this week are Marvine Borders, Martha Wright, Judy Jernigan, James and Sue Fuller and Cindy Coursey.


Shirley Coursey got home from the Springfield hospital late Saturday, glad she is home and soon feeling lots better.


Sorry Danny Coursey is not feeling up to par and this morning (Monday) is having tests done in Bowling Green, hope he gets a good report.


Our crowd was very small in church yesterday. I managed to stay for both services, it was beautiful out and again chilly. As you can tell I’m allergic to chilly and cold weather. I’m sure we have plenty ahead of us, so might as well try to get used to it. Honestly, I’m a cold freak.


Are you enjoying the Tobacco Festival? We used to go to a lot of the events, but don’t anymore.


Isn’t it strange for years you just gotta go to these events and now have no desire to be out in all that crowd.


See ya next time, smile.
