As I start to write, it is beginning to sprinkle and we are to have more rain tomorrow. That means back to the mowing.
Sure would be good if the county could see a way to mow the road sides north of Lane and in front of my house on the way to the lake. The Johnson grass is 4 to 5 feet high, hard to see to get out of my driveway onto the blacktop.
Leon Yates passed away Tuesday evening, at his home. He has not been doing good for awhile. Services were held at Atoka Funeral Home on Friday afternoon. Our sympathy to Georgia and the family, he will be missed by many. He was my helper. I never ask him to do anything, that he said no, it was always I will be right over there and he was.
Spider lillies, naked ladies or surprise lillies, whatever you call them, they are up and make a beautiful spot in my yard.
Atoka lost their first game this last Friday night, but it was not to Marlow. That game was called off and they played a team I had not heard of. This week they will go to Hugo. Then Antlers the next week before we have another home game.
The Coben Community Center could use serving spoons, large and small, if you have them to spare for serving dinners.
I had a call from an old friend this week, she is not old but our friendship is old. She lived in Lane for a long time. Catherine Booth now lives in Denison, Texas, but still misses her old home. She said she is fine, but tired of being at home all the time, ready to get out and go places.
All the news for this week, see you the next time, the Lord willing.
Remember, when you kill time, there is no resurrection.
