Henry Jackson killed a rattlesnake with 13 rattlers. It was almost as long as his tailgate is wide. Please be careful walking around. A person can walk up on one before you know it.
Please keep Jesse Tillman and his wife, Priscilla, in prayer. He totaled his car in Arkansas late Friday. Jesse wasn’t hurt bad but he is really shook up and bruised up. His car is definitely totaled. They went back to Arkansas Saturday to get his belongings out of the car.
A belated happy anniversary to Phil and Ginger Harrison. They celebrated 22 years Saturday, October 3.
Congratulations to Cheyanne Anderson and Ledge Cory on the arrival of a handsome baby boy. Carden Reid Croy was born September 29 and weighed seven pounds, 11 ounces and was 19 1/2 inches long. I don’t know Ledge’s parents but I do know Cheyanne’s folks, Samantha and Brent Anderson. Let me tell you this baby is in for a lot of love and spoiling!
Martha Box had a few “Friday the 13th” things occur recently. She made six dozen peanut butter candy balls and placed in the freezer to chill. She went to lift the pan out and coat them with chocolate and well, she accidentally dropped them and she had to pick up everyone she could find all over the floor. They rolled like a ball. When I talked to her, she was back in the kitchen making some more.

I was in a soup-making mood Sunday. I got up early and put some chicken breasts on to boil. While they were cooking, I listened to a good sermon on TV. After it was over, I gathered up vegetables and spices and beef cubes and got my pot started. I chopped up my chicken and added it and thought how good it would be with fresh okra sliced up to top it off. Guess who sweet talked David into going to the garden? The okra made all the difference in the world, along with my homemade tomato juice. While that was cooking, I made two skillets of cornbread.
Congratulations to Eddie and Vivian Simmons are in order. They are the proud owners of a new baby… calf that is and it is beautiful.
