We had a great day on Saturday at voting day. Always get to see so many that we don’t see every often, so many hugs. Ha! It was a good turn out and lots of laughs. Yes we did. 

Dan and Carol Little from West Monroe drove over for a good visit. Of course, Dan’s main reason was his favorite strawberry ice cream, cheddar cheese and Bryan Bologna. 

We welcome yet another Cheek girl back to Rayville, Davie and Cheryl (Cheek) Cardova from Dallas have bought a home in Rayville. There are two more, Connie and Sandra, but we probably won’t get them back. Hey, they don’t know what they are missing. 

Brenda Goodman and her neice, Stacey motored over to Shreveport on Sunday to visit with Geraldene Jones Watson. Had a good visit. I enjoyed ole Ken and Merle Rabon visiting on voting and I shared some gumbo and rice and potato pie with them. Many years ago, Merle, Sue Fortenberry and I spent every Sunday together at my house and their house. 

That, of course, is what people say “was the good old days.” But other than getting older, I think everyday is good! 

Our love and prayers go out to the family, friends and loved ones of Mrs. Dovie McManus Hales who took her Heavenly flight last week. Yes, she spent her November 21st birthday with her Heavenly Father and loved ones who had gone before her. May God bless each one who was touched by this sweet lady’s life.

Happy Birthday this week to: Brenda Whittington, Brenda Lockard on November 21st, Vicki Pylant, Cole Jones, Lorie Grisby, Sylvia Hardy, Joseph Charrier on November 22nd, Stephanie Stephens, Dustin Sanders on November 23rd, Katie Pelly, Mildred Carroll and Fanny Wynn on November 24th, Diane Nettles, Mrs. Dorothy Inzer, Lauren Albritton on November 25th, Angie Hewitt, Dalton Bell and Heather Mosley on November 26th, Wendy Walters on November 27th. May these celebrate many more Hapy ones!

Anniversary wishes to: John and Bobbie Stell and Joe and Dorathy Lively on November 23rd. I wish for these many more hapy years together!

Have a great week and a Happy Thanksgiving to all. 

Remember: The remedy for human problems is God’s amazing grace.
