Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to my mother, Ruthie Anderson who I am very proud of has turned 85 years old. My mother still enjoys good health while she rides her three-wheeled bicycle a mile a day. My mother, even at 85, doesn’t take any prescribed medicine.
This week she received several calls, texts and very special birthday cards from friends and family which were very much appreciated.
Her daughter, Kenni Lane of Marietta hosted a small afternoon gathering of special life-long friends in Ruthie’s home on the day of her birthday which included Dorothy Muncy, Lavona Wyrick, Edna Burleson, Jo-Ann Gabbart and Gladys Kelly.
Ruthie’s daughters and grandsons and their families also treated her to a nice birthday dinner at Lake Murray this past weekend.
We especially appreciate all those who remembered her special day.
This week the bright side for former Talihina gridiron standouts, brothers Tyler and Sooner Box at the Atoka-Talihina match up was getting to visit with their Aunt Brooke Moore of Atoka.
Tyler, a former defensive end, and also a state qualifier and his mother Teri Box drove up from Talihina where they met up with Sooner, a former state qualifier quarterback who is also playing football at Southeastern. The group enjoyed visiting with Teri’s sister, Brooke Moore even though the match-up didn’t turn out the quite the way they would have liked for the Box brothers.
We want to remind everyone that we have started having our Sunday school services again. Sunday school services start at 9:45 A.M. followed by worship services at 10:45 A.M.
Some of my Talihina friends said they also enjoyed meeting and visiting with Nancy Williams this past week. It seems one of Nancy’s granddaughters is marrying one of my teacher’s step brothers and they were having a wedding shower at her home.
Happy Birthday wishes also go out to Raylene (Harris) Burleson who celebrated a birthday this past week.
I enjoyed visiting with Dottie (Muncy) Burkhalter’s son this past week. Rickey has branched out and started his own electrical business and he did some electrical work for me. He did a great job. It’s hard to believe Dottie should have a son that old.
I recently told my nephews that I was going to spend their inheritance. I’ve decided as soon as all the COVID19 settles down I’m going to build a new house across the pasture before I retire.
My plans are to sell my house and 25 acres keeping 5 acres where my grandmother’s house set and where her rose bushes are. I’d welcome any suggestions or ideas about new homes, construction or builders.
Please continue to keep Jess Youngblood in your thoughts and prayers as he continues to deal with medical issues. We hope Jess will be up to “Par” before long. (Jess, I hope you appreciate the golf humor!)
We are glad to hear Corkie Smith is doing better. We hope she is able to make it back to church before long. She is surely missed.
