Happy birthday to Deborah Dupriest of Kellyton; she also works as an excellent cashier at Wal-Mart and celebrates on November 20. And on the twenty-first Herb and Irma Traylor, who are such a sweet couple in Equality, will enjoy their sixty-second wedding anniversary.
November 24 brings another year better to Tory Phillips of Alex City; she still attends CACC, works part-time for a local restaurant and works helping her mother, Jamie, at her grooming company. Happy wishes to everyone who has a November birthday.
We had to have our toilet replaced; it had been repaired too many times. Mr. Neighbors from Kellyton came to our aid, and his company did the replacement. The new one is just great, one of those quick flushers, and we are thrilled with it. I have always tried to keep as many “old” things as possible since the house was built in 1842; no toilets then, so I figured, folks would have upgraded some things as replacements. After all, we have a modern kitchen and TVs.
Burr, it’s here, just in case we forgot what winter feels like; personally, I’ll take the southern summer any day. Our house heat went out last week. We think this time we may just get it replaced; machinery only lasts a certain amount of time. Just a shame it seems many things happen one after the other that cost big money to repair and replace, and prices on everything has risen at an alarming rate.
I have shortened my grocery list and only make that trip when we need things we can’t do without. Can you believe our gas prices in Alex City have already gone up to $3.11? But that’s far better than if we were in California, where everything is so overpriced. The current government in charge plans to do nothing to help us and has said so. The promises were not kept, and folks are having to choose between groceries and medicine. I am trying to plan meals from the pantry and freezer, as it was originally purchased for that reason. I have been amazed at what I had forgotten about as it was hiding behind other goods.
Well it was a bad health week for Ron. After his four strokes, he got a pacemaker inserted into his heart the following day; it went fine. But we have to wait for instructions to come in the mail to set up the pacemaker. So Ron still feels very weak, plus he learned he was anemic.
I am gradually unpacking my winter clothes. I really feel the cold, plus sweaters supposedly went out of style, but are back in again this year. I won’t buy any new ones since I have plenty. Must layer up to stay warm, living in an old house with tall ceilings.
Keep warm, enjoy the sunshine when you can, and until next week, keep smiling.
