Good Times

Posted Monday, October 22, 2012, at 4:28 PM

This weather has been a bit iffy, hasn't it? It goes from hot to cold to colder to warm to whatever. Seems to rain on someone's football game every week. I am just glad it isn't miserably hot anymore. Now I am sure we can look forward to some miserably cold weather this winter

Jessie Malin, Georgia Sallee, Carol Stone, Lane Wozniak took a drive over to Hardy Saturday to celebrate Lane's birthday. That was a beautiful drive through the hills. The leaves were awash with color. Of course Jessie and Georgia could name the trees by the color of their foliage, not that the rest of us would know if they were wrong. I believe them though. I keep getting older but I am not all that sure I am getting wiser.

We ate at a new restaurant there called the Pig and Whistle. The fare is British and the food was really good. Between the 5 of us we sampled the salmon, the shepherd's pie and the pasty. We had delicious bread and butter pudding and apple pie for desert. Yummy! Then Jessie and I went into an antique store and had to be dragged out several hours later. It was a lovely day to wander around town.

Candy Hill has the cutest bird house in her yard. And now thanks to Candy, Jessie has one just like it. She found them in Brookland. Ask her about them.

I suppose you noticed that I am finally getting my porch painted. Cathy Diddle is working on it in her spare time. She really doesn't have much of that either. But I think we are about to get it finished.

Carol Stone and her daughter, Mary (Stone) Small and I spent most of Friday in Jonesboro running errands and buying more than we can afford. We couldn't wait to get to Jonesboro to eat so we stopped at Paragould. We had a lot of fun and I realized late in the day that our antics were entertaining to a lot of on-lookers. It was a fun day.

I want to remind you that November 1 at 6:30 is the night of Clay County Arts Council, Inc's Holiday Fashion Show at Sugar Creek Country Club in Piggott. Tickets are $20.00 for members and $25.00 for non-members and that will get you dinner, the fashion show and a chance to do some Christmas shopping. Merchants from both Piggott and Rector will have displays of their merchandise for you to purchase and order. There will also be a silent auction the proceeds of which will go to the CCAC scholarship fund. CCAC is committed to supporting and promoting the arts in Clay County and gives several scholarships to students each year. Tickets are limited so contact Gail Burns if you want to go: (870)240-3014. Or call me (870) 595-4997.

Also don't forget the craft fair at the community center next month. If you want to reserve a table to display and sell your items contact the community center at: 870-595-3035.

And Halloween is next week. I am looking forward to all the little ghosts and goblins coming by my house . . . if they are brave enough.

Time to go. Please let me know what is going on with you. You can email me at: porchswing@newwavecomm.net or call me (870) 595-4997. You can even drop me a line at 514 West 3rd St., Rector AR 72461.

Bless our military.
