Hello to all on this beautiful day after Christmas. Sure looks as if we are in for a cold winter. David, Sarah, Jamie and I went to Rickey and Anne Glidewell’s house on Dry Creek Road for Christmas dinner and a family reunion. It is amazing these days, we live so close and only see […]
Happy belated birthday greeting to Mike Simmons, Ken Davis and Pat Davis. I hope you all had good ones. Happy belated anniversary to Jimmy and Dianne Simmons who celebrated December 23.
