Crappie tournaments begin in April

Howdy folks.

We lost another angel to Heaven last week. I went to the funeral on Monday morning, the visitation was from 10 a.m. until noon then the funeral. This was at the Nazarene Church in Bethel. This lady had a great family – several grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. Folks remember—“You preach your funeral the way you live your life.” There was a big crowd and the burial was at the Williamsburg cemetery. Then there was a fine meal for the family and friends. This is a time to remember about how she lived. During the service her son, Terry, gave a eulogy about his early life at home. There were two boys and one girl. Terry told how his mother and dad I guess were kind of strict when they were growing up. Terry picked up a paddle his mother used on them. If she used the paddle your name was on it. He said they wondered why his dad’s name was on the paddle – wow. The three ministers who gave a talk were very impressed with this lady. The Nazarene minister, Rev. Scott, gave the message and it was a fine message. After the message when folks were going through visiting the folks – when I shook his hand – he said this message was for you too since it was just a little over a year since Ruth Ann had died. The folks at the Nazarene church are so fortunate to have Reverend Wade and his lovely wife to minister to their church. Now on Wednesday evening his wife is directing the community choir. The lovely lady I have been writing about is Elvira Adams. She lived in Williamsburg. This lady was like Ruth Ann she always had a big smile for everybody. On the celebration of life was, “I’m free, Don’t grieve me for now I am free, I’m following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard him call I turned my back and left it all.”

I was talking to Mike at the Boars Head Bait Shop in Afton this morning. He said he and grandma were down to Golden Corral on Tuesday and a lady came over to their table. She really was glad to see Mike’s grandma. She has read so much about her and finally got to meet her. This lady spent several minutes talking to them – especially the queen– Mike’s grandma. She is a very lovely lady. Mike is so fortunate to have her.

Mike gave me the schedule for the Crappie tournaments they will be have this year. The first one is April 17, and then May 15, June 5, June 19, Aug. 7, and the championship for the year is Sept. 17 and 18. Now on Aug. 6 the Boars Head Bait Shop always holds a special event for a special project to raise money. This year the event is for Parkinson’s disease. The time is noon to 7 p.m. If you go you can speak to grandma.

While I was writing this article I heard a noise and the propane truck was here. I buy from Lykins. The propane in the tank was at 40 percent. The driver filled the tank to 80 percent. I grew up with the Lykin’s boys at Newtonsville. Their dad and mother were fine folks – they were farmers when I first knew them. Then their dad started a station in the Newtonsville area – they are good people.

I had to go get a new belt for the sweeper this morning – the old one broke. So while I was down toward Amelia, I stopped and got some more seed starters at Walmart. I needed to have a new spare tire. It seems the one I had for the truck – it just disappeared, so Bethel Marine got me a wheel and put a tire on the rim and then helped put the tire back on the truck.

I had an invitation to go to Windy’s world in Williamsburg. I always enjoy being there with them. Those folks there at the store are a very interesting group and it’s an interesting place. While there a woman was weaving a rag rug – another one sewing the border around a quilt. The folks who own the store are very strong Christians.

I filled the bird and squirrel feeders last Saturday so on Tuesday morning the feeders were empty. I have a big bunch of Cardinals and when the snow is on everything, the red Cardinals sure look pretty.

Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praising the good Lord. God bless all.

More later.
