A wet Saturday in Spa. At least it isn’t snow. I did see a few flakes falling one day this week.
Last Saturday Helen Porter, with her brother Wilford and Jeri Scarbrough of Auburn, drove over to Dixon, Tennessee to help other brother Edwin and Dorris Scarbrough celebrate their 50th anniversary. There was a large crowd attending including three of Edwin’s graduating class.
One day this past week Dianne Porter drove Helen to Russelville for a Dr’s appointment.
I had a Dr’s appointment Monday in Russellville with Dr. Kamal Singh, Got a good report on all my blood work. Judy Jernigan too me and after leaving the Dr’s office we went to Colonial Inn and met Martine Brown and Kathryn Stuart and all enjoyed lunch together.
One afternoon this past week, Jeff and Corrie Fuller, Brett, Sean, Jeff and Olivia visited parents James and Sue Fuller. Corrie, being the kind, sweet girl she is, brought pot roast. They enjoyed the visit and eats, too.
Friday night was the designated time for the meal from “Come to my Table,” and it was good. I like vegetables, and the dessert was very good. Brinign mine was Sloan Coursey. Let me tell you, that kid is a whiz. In and out very fast, ha.
In the Adairville article, about the raising of tobacco, we raised tobacco, too. That was the only way to make any money, so we raised tobacco several years. We had this dog named Rattler, he was a black hound dog. When Bob and I would get ready to go to the field Rattler always went with us. We would sucker and worm the tobacco. Rattler was the best “worm,” he would cock his head sideways and you knew he had found a worm. He would snatch it off the plant, shake it vigorously, then the worm would be dead. He’d then throw it down and keep going down the row hunting more. He could find them quicker than Bob or I. Imagine a dog doing that. Well believe me he did.
This morning was declared Wanda Coursey day. She has recently resigned as pianist and our organist. She has helped out in both positions, as well as teaching, helping in Cantatas and Bible school and other places she was needed. I think all her family was there, as well as grandkids, too. So it was a good day for Wanda. Thanks for all you’ve done.
Today turned out to be a beautiful day, a wee bit windy but other than that, a truly beautiful day. So maybe spring is almost here.
Easter, I think, is only a couple of weeks away. I think it is the 2nd Sunday in April.
Spring revival begins April 6th, which is next Sunday. Bringing the message will be Bro. Jeff Crabtree. Come if you can, I’m sure he is a good preacher, so you will enjoy listening to him.
So goodbye till next time.
