Way to go Ole Miss!!! Mississippi is a proud state and we all celebrated Sunday night as we have back-to-back college World Series winners and the 2022 National Community College Championship! Thank you Mississippi State and Ole Miss!
Athena Dukes and daughters, Maddy and Morgan from Harrison, Ark., came Friday and visited family in Tillatoba. They left Sunday afternoon going back home. They had a really good visit with Diane Dukes and family Sunday. Waylon, Holly and daughter, Haven Rose Dukes; Morgan and Maddy Dukes; Sam, Anna and, daughter, Joanna Pullen; and Athena Dukes all went swimming while Aunt Terri Pullen cooked a big lunch that included potato salad, barbecue ribs, sweet corn, rolls and ice cream for dessert. Everybody enjoyed being there to see Kuku ( Diane Dukes) come home from her vacation in Texas.
Dale and Shannon Dukes stopped by for a visit also.
Martha Box said she saw a few good old friends and a few new ones while she was out and about this past week. She also had a good pain workout via physical therapy.
Martha’s son-in-law, Phil Harrison, and her grandson, Josh Harrison went over and cut her grass. She said, “they sure are good to me.”
Saturday she had a great visit from her niece, Shannon, and her family from Cleveland,Texas. She reported they laughed and ate and ate.
“And yeah, I ate leftovers today,” Martha added.
Her sister, Joyce, cooked some great corn many of the family met at Martha’s so they could visit since they made a rush trip. Her granddaughter, Rissa Leachman, and great grand, Addie made a pop call!
Love and sympathy to the Sonny McCullough family of Coffeeville. Sonny passed away Saturday, June 24.
Jeff and Margo Bailey of Pope and daughters, Annah and Amelia and her husband, Josh Byers, visited Eugene, Peggy and Eric Bailey last Sunday.
Donna Garripoli brought dinner up Sunday and she took me to Batesville shopping for a bug light. I had no idea those things were so high. Maybe now I can sit on the porch after dark if it’s not too hot.
Daisy Isbell stayed with her sister, Rina Chaney, of Hardy for a few days because she had surgery on her arm. While she was with Rina, her husband Mickey texted her to see if she wanted to go to the Smoky Mountains with Candice Oldaker, his daughter, and family.
So naturally Daisy said, “Sure why not.” They left on Sunday and came back Friday. They rode rides and drove up to Clingmons Dome. They shopped, ate at some cool places and went through the lost sea caves! Daisy said they were just absolutely wearing their selves out. It was a fun trip!
Diane Dukes texted me while she was in Texas last week and said, “I can’t wait to get home, this isn’t for this girl but, I did see a cowboy, just one. He was a security guard.” We, meaning her granddaughter, Roseann Rose, and her daughter-in-law, Kathy Dukes, John Luke and Ethan Dukes go somewhere every day. Diane said she wishes she was younger – she would probably like it more. Everybody is nice and friendly but, it’s a really, really rushed place. She said the food is great and she loves going to the mall. So many buildings, so many different stores. I know John Luke and Ethan, my two grandsons, have enjoyed the trip. I guess we have all enjoyed it. Ethan sounds like he loves it. He is doing all kind of things that deal with Science. He had to go to school while he was there to learn more about Science. That’s what the trip was all about. Congratulations, Ethan for being chosen for this trip
Happy birthday to Dixie Fernandez on the 3rd of July; and to my grandson-in-law, Brad Holliday and his twin brother Brian; to Bart Hilton who celebrates the 4th; and Amanda Ferguson, the 5th.
Happy 18th anniversary Sunday, the 26th, to Twin and Amanda Ferguson; and happy 23rd anniversary to David and Daisy Burlison. I pray you two couples have many more to celebrate.
Thought for the day…..Faith carries the light of truth which eliminates the shadow of doubt.
