Martha Makes Quick Trip To Texas To Visit Her Family

I am so proud of my great-grandson, Bradley Fred Holliday, for making the superintendent’s list. He had breakfast with the superintendent Tuesday morning and was so excited.

Joyce Stevens went for a scan Monday morning. Prayers that she will get a good report.

Richard Beck has moved from Tillatoba to Pontotoc after taking a job at another dealership there. He had worked with Kirk in Grenada for a long time. Richard will keep his place here in Tillatoba. He and his two children visited his grandmother, Darlene Moorman,  Sunday afternoon. Darlene is still having a lot of trouble with her back, and she said it is a lot worse than when I saw her over a year ago, thanks to Covid!

Martha Box went on a little trip this weekend. She drove to see her brother, Ronnie Wortham, and other family members in Palestine, Texas, just to spend the night. She said it was quite a reunion with his kids and grands landing there. Another brother, Jesse, and his daughter and a couple of grands came in later.

Wow, Martha said you talk about a spontaneous reunion – crab, fish and everything-else meal. My report from Martha was all she did was play and party! Sounds about right.

She spent two nights and left all those babies laughing as she and her brother, Jesse Wortham, saddled up and rode back together. She reported it was a lovely ride.

We had a surprise visit the other afternoon from my sister, Ann Hudson, and my brother-in-love Tommy, along with their friend, Barry Baker. It was a short visit but a good one. Ann found two sprouts from a yellow rose bush of mine that another sister, Elizabeth McLendon, had given me over 30 years ago! I thought it had died on me back last year. Thank you sweet sister!

Happy belated birthday to Keith Beck, who celebrated the 9th; to Malinda Ford Martin on the 16; and sharing a birthday on the 17th is my son, Tim Sullivan, Julia Kerr and Ginny Sosebee. I hope you all have a great day celebrating your special day.

There was a bridal shower for Jackson Jarrell and Emily Jones at the Tillatoba Baptist Fellowship Hall Saturday afternoon. They received a lot of useful gifts. Much love and happiness to this sweet couple.

David and I visited Donna Garripoli in Grenada for a short while Wednesday. Donna was busy working in her yard as usual. I love watching the ducks playing in the water when we go down there.

I saw Vivian Simmons holding up a huge fish on Facebook. I think it would feed several people. Way to go, Vivian! I know Eddie is proud of you for putting a lot of meat on the table! I think Vivian also killed a big deer this past winter.

Thought for the day…Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than in the one where they sprang up.
