When I was writing the household hint about getting chewing gum off of things, I happened to think of a funny story. My boyfriend and I were at Stuart High School for a basketball game. Someone had thrown a big wad of bubble gum, and it had landed between us and we didn’t know it. When we started to get up, we were stuck together for a bit, and left with a mess of gum on our clothes. Then everyone had a good laugh, us included.
Please keep Linda Roberts on your prayer list at this time.
“Walking Steve” is back in town again after a long trek. I’m sure he has a lot of stories to tell about his travels. It’s good to see him.
On Sunday I enjoyed eating lunch with Leonard and Arlene Trent and Barbara at Elizabeth’s Pizza.
Thanks to Leon Handy for his kindness. God bless you.
The movie “War Zone” was shown in the ministry center on Sunday night at Patrick Springs Pentecostal Holiness Church. It was great. It was also nice to have visitors sharing, and I got to see some folks I hadn’t seen in some time.
Mary Ann arrived safely from Washington, D.C. She brought me a huge bag of books, looks like a small library. In summer I don’t read as much. I also need to concentrate on reading the Bible more.
Love and prayers goes out to the family of Harlie Hubbard, who passed away recently. He was a well known farmer on the mountain and grew up in the Mountain View community.
When I stopped by Josie Spence’s, her daughter Glenda, had left me a precious picture of my Grandma Dollie’s old home place. I will use it in the Party Line soon. There were so many memories there, all good ones.
Happy birthday to my “forever” friend, LaNita Harris, who will celebrate on March 13.
“Sandy Man” is frisky as ever and guards his property well. The other day when some surveyors were near the house, he growled and stationed himself in the middle of the back yard. There he sat for almost an hour.
Pastor Marion of the Patrick Springs Pentecostal Church has a great love for people and shows it by being so friendly to all that come his way.
Household hint: To treat chewing gum when stuck to things, harden with ice, then scrape gum off with a blunt knife. Sponge with a grease solvent.
1 pound hamburger
1 small box macaroni
2 Tbsp. ketchup
1 can tomato soup
1 medium onion
1 Tbsp. salt
Cook macaroni as directed. Simmer slowly the hamburger, onions, soup, salt and ketchup. Drain the macaroni and add to the other ingredients while hot. Makes a delicious main dish. Serve with slaw or salad and rolls.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy. They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. (This was on the front of a card I got from the Woody family.)
