Baby it’s cold outside!
James Lee Sturdivant won second place in the Halloween costume contest at his school! Congratulations, James Lee!
Mary Brett Hartley was named Student of the Month in October at North Delta school.
Jack Bowman went deer hunting but instead of killing a deer, he cleaned out the coyote population a little bit more! Way to go, Jack! You Tillatoba boys and girls are always making the news! I’m proud of all of you!!
Kyle Scott, son of James and Maci McLendon Scott of West Point, got his driver’s license last week. Seems like yesterday that his mother, little Maci, was driving in her grandmother’s pasture and all you could see was the top of her head. Now her son is driving with a license. Back then, all little Maci had was her “pretend-like” license.
Sheryn Goode’s daughter, Dana Huffman, and Sheryn’s friend, Tracy Hall, visited her Saturday. They went to the Vardaman Sweet Potato Festival. She said she had never seen so many people. After leaving Vardaman, they come back through Grenada and went to Walls and then on to eat. Sheryn said she had a very good day but, “This old lady was on her last leg when we got back home.”
Martha Box says she’s still fat and sassy. No brand new news – but still know the Real News is as always, JESUS !
“Just working about the house, trying to find that turkey before Santa lands . Every commercial trying to get our money cause IT’S CHRISTMAS!” Martha added.
Martha’s sister, Joyce Stevens is much better and Martha’s cold is over.
Martha and Joyce ate at Geezlin Corner and reported the best ribeye sandwich ever! Martha said they are going to have to start cooking cause they also ate at the Catfish Hut Friday. Talk about getting fat!
Martha reported a beautiful ride to Pine Grove Church Sunday with God’s colors bringing out the praises.
“Bro. James Caulder led such spirit lifting music. Jake and Josh (grands) sitting about me sounded so awesome. It lifted me up!” Martha said.
Jake did a special that led right into Bro. Scarborough’s message.
“And I tell you if there was anyone there that did not know JESUS, they knew HIM when it was over!” Martha added.
She also visiting with daughter, Ginger, along with Phil and the GrandMEN.
This past weekend was opening season weekend for kids who deer hunt and great grandson, Bradley Holliday went and he got him one! O’Ma is so proud of you, Bradley!
Brianna Nobles had a beautiful baby shower in Grenada last weekend. Brianna had a lot of family and friends attend the baby shower for little Harper. Harper is home now after spending two months in the hospital in Jackson.
Saturday, Diane Dukes and daughter, Terri, went to Des Arc, Ark. and traveling to a Christmas store where they had a lot of pretty things. It was a two hour and 45 minute drive to get there, but they enjoyed it as they laughed and talked about Christmas decorations and old times.
Diane said she keeps planning her Thanksgiving dinner. She will have to cook for a month because every day she adds something else to the menu. Her late husband, Jimmy Dukes, loved Thanksgiving. Diane said he always wanted their kids and grandkids and anybody who wanted to come and they were always welcome.
Diane said Christmas was also a favorite. The more she cooked the more Jimmy wanted from ambrosia to fudge, along with cookies, cakes, pies.
I would always say, “Jimmy you’re diabetic and you don’t need all that and they don’t either!”
Saturday was a wonderful day for us. My cousin from Germany, Curt Tillman and wife, Elke; Patsie Tillman of Coffeeville; Tommy and Ann Hudson; and Donna Garripoli of Grenada visited us. We fixed sandwiches and had the trimmings to go with it. Elke had made a delicious African Bomb cake and I had made a pineapple upside down cake. We had a great time and David and I enjoyed it very much. I wish Curt and Elke lived closer so we could visit more often. He tries to come two or three times a year to see his mom.
Ray Bell was taken by ambulance to the hospital Monday morning. Prayers for Ray.
I talked to Peggy Bailey by phone Monday morning and she was doing pretty good. Said her kids were coming to check on her and she had plenty to eat.
Kathy Dukes went to Biloxi with the School for Comfort last Thursday and came home Sunday. All the managers who work in the lunchrooms in Grenada had to attend. She reported that having a comfortable place for students to eat their lunch increases their appetite and helps them do better in their academic work.
I saw where Robby Rikard is in Hagerstown, Maryland this week teaching driver safety and performance for McElroy Truck Lines. He will teach drivers how to make good decisions behind the wheel and in the workplace. Over the next couple weeks, Robby will get to meet drivers from all up and down the East Coast. Robby said he was honored to help make McElroy Truck Lines a safer, more enjoyable place to work.
When Robby was a little boy, his dad would bring him in the truck stop to eat. I watched this young man grow up to be a father of two children, a pastor, a truck driver and a driver safety teacher. They had a hunting camp not far from the truck stop. It does my heart good to see young people do good in life.
Happy anniversary to Brent and Tori Bowman on the 12th!
Happy birthday to Chase Swope on the 6th; Clay McFerrin and Sam Pullen celebrate on the 9th; Jackson Jerrell on the 10th; Diane Dukes, Rosemary Irby and Harvey Sturdivant share a birthday on the 11th; Mali Jarrell on the 13th; Marie Rowland and Samantha Irwin Dees celebrate the 14th; and Charlie Brook Bowman celebrates the 15th.

Thought for the day: I can’t stand people who blame everyone else for their problems… I’d be successful and happy by now if it wasn’t for them.
