Mountain Top Party Line

Pictured: My dear friend Bernice Irwin. We were on one of her hikes. Over the years, I, Bernice and Lanita covered a lot of miles. We even hiked a lot in North Carolina. Those were some good days.

Thanks to everyone who sent me some Valentine’s. I sure did get some pretty ones and they brightened my day.

Guess I’m doing better every day because I’m driving some now, not too far at a time. Also walking better and have to use my cane for balance.

Sure did enjoy a visit from my friends Jerry and Rhonda Morgan. They brought me all kinds of nice things, Valentine’s candy, a beautiful afghan for spring and two pairs of shoes that I can wear. I was thankful for the shoes because it’s hard to find some to be comfortable on my injured feet.

Thanks to Larry and Teresa Martin for all the delicious food they brought from Gloria’s. I’m telling you I’m eating good.

Well, I was able to drive to Patrick Springs to the Food Ministry and get some veggies and see Sam and the church dog. He was so cute in his red winter sweater. He was happy to see me and jumping up and down.

I’m going back and read all my cards soon. Last count, I had got over 200. I will keep them.

Keith came over and blew some leaves away. I’ve been picking up some limbs when I walk to the mailbox. Things are looking better.

Thanks to Carol Wood for calling and checking on me. I appreciate it so much.

Please put my long time friend, Pauline Martin on your prayer list. Her son called me and told me she had fallen and was in a health care facility. Pauline and I go back a long ways. I first met her when I worked at Poor Farmers Farm, then she always stopped at Greens Country Store.

I was blessed to go to the Wednesday night meal and had a ham supper- Good!

To The Enterprise- Hope to see you soon- Miss you!
