Emily Crawford says if you’re going to break your foot, make sure your sister, Jenn has already broken hers first so you can use all her stuff. Emily was playing duck duck goose with a three-year old in the nursery and stepped on a riding toy. Praying you won’t have to have surgery, Emily.
Mickey and Daisy Isbell recently visited Mickey’s daughter in Union City Tenn., Candice and Jason Oldaker, and their children Tif, Carson and Zane. They watched Carson play football and watched Zane play the next day. It was a wonderful trip, but all good things must come to an end so they are back home now. I’m sure they are reminiscing about the good time they had.
Ginger and Phil Harrison have both boys in school. Josh started his senior year and Jake moved back in the dorm at Delta State. Ginger said it has been busy but hopefully they will all get into their new routines soon. Jake sang “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” Sunday at Pine Grove and did a great job. Both of those boys are so talented and always do a good job! Guess they get it after their daddy, Phil.
Tommy McCool’s brother, James McCool, had to go to the emergency room this week for an emergency surgery. He had a hernia and let it go too long. He is home now and is resting. He lives in Philadelphia, Miss.
My daughter, Donna Garripoli, took me shopping in Oxford Sunday afternoon. When David and I go to Oxford for doctor visits, we usually don’t feel like shopping after wards so I enjoyed this afternoon.
Martha Box says she is still going but not quite as fast. She’s trying to get things done at her house, plus she picks her granddaughter, Marnie, up from Kirk Academy. She has been crocheting pretty scarfs while waiting in line. This helps the time pass while waiting and will make nice Christmas gifts!
Martha is planning to ride to all the states she has not seen. That is as soon as gas gets back down a lot more than it is now!
David and I rode up the road Sunday afternoon and visited with our great granddaughter, Haven Rose Dukes. She fed me cookies, and we played and watched cartoons. It’s hard to get their attention for long when cartoons are on. I did get a few pictures of her and she did too, but it was of the floor and her feet. Still sweet pictures.

Ray Bell was honored with a cookout at his home for his birthday.
Debbie McCool and family went to her daddy’s after church and cooked out for his 88th birthday. Their girls and their families were there. Christopher and his family couldn’t make it and they missed them not being there. Also Debbie’s sister, Patsy Merrill, made homemade ice cream and a cake for their daddy. Patsy’s daughter-in-law, Pheibe Merrill, and the three grandkids were there too. Debbie found out she is going to be a great grandmother times two, and I’m going to be a great-great aunt. Her granddaughter, Veronica, and husband are expecting a girl in November; and her grandson, Nicholas, and his wife, Loren, just found out they are expecting. My congratulations to all of you!!!
Thought for the day…When you are in trouble, try to keep your chin up and your mouth closed.
