We had a lovely Thanksgiving meal at our daughter and son in law's. They are the most wonderful hosts, not just saying that to brag... they have a genuine gift of making you feel so welcome! The food was so delicious and it was wonderful being together after a year of many ups and downs. This could easily have been the Thanksgiving that would have been difficult, but instead it was one we will remember fondly.
I can remember Mom and Dad getting their hometown paper, the Boone County Headlight in the mail. Every week Grandma Risley would send Thursday's copy with the Community Correspondent columns. They looked forward to receiving it and would read every word and then discuss it at length. There would be news of births and deaths, church news and who visited who on Sunday... really! Just to let you see how delicious this part of my past was, I'll try to recreate the column...
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. So many in the community were blessed to have friends and family at their tables to make the holiday special. Southside Baptist served up it's annual potluck to members and guests, all are welcome at the dinner held the Sunday before Thanksgiving. It's always well attended, every pie, cake or cobbler known to mankind can be found on the dessert tables!
Juanita Tilton tells us she and Bill were honored guests at the home of their granddaughter Stephanie at Rogers. They had the most wonderful time and enjoyed a delicious Texas Style fried turkey prepared by Stephanie's husband Ken. The meal had all their favorites and the best part was being together!
Until next week, stay warm and make sure the wood pile's high!
