I’ve got a new battery for my pacemaker and the doctor says I’m good for another seven years. But you know, the pacemaker may be here after I’m gone. I am very glad to have a new one that is working well. Barry and Becky Jo took me to Nashville last Wednesday to get the pacemaker replaced.
Margie Latham is doing double duty helping her family. She goes two days a week to the nursing home to see and help her sister, Mrs. Ravenelle Penrod and two days a week to help her daughter, who is almost helpless, Vicki Martin. That doesn’t leave much time for herself. But yesterday, she brought me a pot of chicken and dumplings that I am enjoying very much. She takes a lot of pleasure in doing for others and she will surely be rewarded.
The Clarks from Clarksville visited Mildred Dorris one day last week. She is the former Evelyn Hunt, who was at one time Mildred’s next door neighbor. She was real happy to have them visit.
Mrs. Ravenelle Penrod, of the Russellville nursing home, celebrated her 94th birthday May 30. Her sister, Margie Latham, and daughter Shelia, Nannie Gardner and Patsy Green were there to help her celebrate the occasion. Of course what goes with a birthday but a cake, presents and friends? I wish her a belated birthday and best wishes for more to come. Yes, she really is a remarkable lady.
People keep asking about my history of Dunmor. I am making corrections on the first copy and will soon be ready (I hope) for the corrected copy. I have my pictures ready and with the help of Sharon Hall, I hope to have it soon complete. I know it has been a long time coming, but due to illness and complications, it could not be avoided.
A group from the Baptist Church spearheaded by Martiza Grant left Monday for parts of eastern Kentucky where they were taking clothing and supplies. Their first stop was at Oneida and then on to parts of eastern Kentucky with supplies for other needs. They are expected home late Wednesday.
Mrs. Mae Brignance is one step closer home. She has been a patient in Vanderbilt Hospital for several days where she underwent heart surgery. She has been transferred to Bowling Green for rehabilitation and that is a little closer to home. Her recovery has been somewhat slow, but we hope now things will speed up. We certainly wish her much success in her recovery and know she will be happy to get home.
The time is gone and dirty dishes are waiting, so we will bid you adieu for today. Every day is a new day and we should make the most of it. Do good, don’t try to even with someone, enjoy what the Lord has given you and share with others. May the Lord bless and keep you is our prayer.
