Lot Of Folks In The Community Are Ailing

By Patsy Deck

I enjoyed the nice weather for a few days. I raked a few leaves Sunday afternoon and had a little burn pile going. It started getting late and cooler and the wind was blowing, so I decided to give it a break. I slept better that night after being outside.
We have so many sick in and around our community. Opal Bell is home from the hospital, Beth McLendon has Covid and feels awful. She says to please take this seriously when going out. Beth’s mom, Judy McLain, was moved to in-patient hospice in Batesville Monday. Lisa Cross is battling cancer and in a lot of pain.
Sandy Beavers would like to add Wade Caulder’s family to the prayer list.  He passed away recently and his wife is in Oxford  hospital with Covid  and pneumonia. Hopefully she will be released by this writing. They are on Sandy’s mail route in Oakland.
Happy birthday to Jessie Tillman on the 7th, Max Lindley and Deborah Sanders share a birthday on the 15th, Trevor Croy celebrates the 16th and Jere Lyn Prigmore and Cindy Traywick Barton share a birthday on the 17th.
Happy anniversary to Bubba and Sheila Mann on the 11th; and to your writer and husband, Pat and David Deck. It’s our 36th and me being a woman, I  looked it up to see what to expect for a gift. It said if a person has been married that long, be thankful that you still have him. It also said something about Bone China. If he doesn’t get me a gift this anniversary, I’m gonna need a new set of Bone China cause all the other will be broken over his head,  probably.
Thank you Sheila Jackson for the gift bag with several gifts from my Sunday School Class and the beautiful poinsettia you left at my door one day last week. I’ll be so glad when I can be back in church with all my friends. I miss you all but am still scared to take a chance.
News is short this week as folks aren’t going much. I think they are like me, scared to leave home.
Faye Hartley said she and Kristie are going to work and coming home. I’m so thankful that I’m retired and don’t have to go to a job and I pray for all of you who are having to go to work, to stay healthy and safe.
Thought for the day….Any wife with an inferiority complex can cure it by being sick in bed for a day while her husband manages the household and the kids.

• 1 1/4 cup cooking oil
• 1 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
• 1 cup chopped pecans
• 2 cups sugar
• 4 eggs
• 2 TBS. hot water
• 1 can crushed pineapple, drained

Mix sugar and cooking oil. Add egg yolks, cinnamon and water. Then add flour, pecans and pineapple. Beat egg whites and fold in last. Bake at 325 degrees for about one hour and 10 minutes. Mix one cup powdered sugar and juice from pineapple and pour on top while hot. This is really a great cake with or without the pecans.
