Please pray for all school students, especially the little children who are experiencing their first year of big school; teachers; administrators; and all faculty members who work for the school system. Be kind to each other. If you are riding a bus, respect your bus driver. Your life as well as others is in the driver’s hands. Make it easy for him or her. I pray you all have a great year!
Visiting with us Saturday was our friend, Larry Franklin of Hardy.
Mali Jarrell and Shelia Jackson left July 2 going to Knoxville, Tenn. to stay  with Liz and Bev Thurman and Steve, Grace and Benji Thurman for a few weeks. Debbie Hayles went up on July 27 and now they are heading home. Liz and Bev are Debbie’s parents.
Sadie Harper had a fever and virus for four days. Hopefully she is on the road to recovery. Her son, Ed Harper, of Indianapolis, Indiana came home for a weeks visit. Sadie and Milton were so happy to see him.  All three kids were here and they took Sadie to Cracker Barrel for a birthday dinner. The manager and servers brought a cake and ice cream out and sang happy birthday to her. It was very nice. Her sister, Betty Mayes, met them at the restaurant and they celebrated her birthday too! She turned 82.
Friday, July 29, was the hubs’ birthday. Donna and I stopped by the Sweet Potato Bakery in Bruce on our way home from Caledonia and I bought him a sweet potato cream cheese pecan pie. Donna brought a birthday cake and ice cream up, and I fixed hamburgers, his orders, with a few extra foods. We had a good time eating, laughing and talking. I pray you have many more birthdays!
Christian love and sympathy to the Paula Nichols Fisk family. Paula, 69, passed away on July 29, at Baptist Memorial Nursing Home in Calhoun City.

Visitation was Sunday, July 31 from 1 p.m. until service time at 3 at Parker Memorial Funeral Home in Bruce. Bro. Robert Earl Alexander officiated. Burial followed in Mt. Comfort Cemetery in Bruce.
Debbie McCool’s great niece by marriage, Mallorie Bowden, was honored by her church with a wedding shower Sunday afternoon. Those attending from Tillatoba with Debbie were her three granddaughters, Allie Dukes and Caitlyn and Hannah Beavers. Eli Stroup is the lucky groom to be.
Happy first anniversary to Janett Baker Buice and Henry Buice on July 31! I hope you two have many more to celebrate!
Happy birthday to Marie Stevens Martin on July 30th and to John Luke Rose on the 31st. My son, Logan Deck, and Lee Ann Howe share a birthday on the 6th; Cheryl Franklin celebrates the 7th; Priscilla Tillman and Benjamin share birthdays on the 8th; and Wesley Melton and Phil Cordel celebrate on the 9th! I hope you all have a great day celebrating!
Martha Box attended the funeral of her cousin, Paula Fisk, in Bruce on Sunday. Other than the funeral, Martha she had another great week with the same get-up-and-get-it-done chores all week. Still blessed. She and her grandson, Josh Harrison, had a great time at Picking and Singing Tuesday night. Martha said, “Wow, he sure sang  and picked!”
It does her heart good to watch him. Martha added that she is still working on her walking, dancing and singing skills.
Thought for the day….. A woman is a person who will spend $20 on a beautiful slip and then be annoyed if it shows.
