Those recently celebrating their birthdays were Valerie G. Bowman, Betty Ann Inman, Mary Romine, Donna Edwards, Judy Chilton and Betty Humphries.
Juanita Gordy has not been well for the past week or so. Sorry you missed my column last week. Keith Johnson, my grandson, has been taking very good care of me. He has been cooking, washing clothes, feeding the dogs, got my medicine — it seems like he can’t do enough for me. I told him I had two sons.
Postage stamps go up Monday to .46 cents. If it wasn’t for “junk mail,” it would be even higher. I have been wondering how long it will take for our Governor to get something done about our economy. I guess everything just takes time.
The Rock House Ruritan Club is still having turkey shoots, weather permitting. Please call 336-351-5433 to check and see if you have any questions. We have a good warm basement. They are also selling $50 tickets for the $5,000 money giveaway on May 4th. You do not have to be present to win.
Mary Romine took a lady to the doctor in Winston-Salem last week. They stopped at K & W for lunch. Her friend sent me a large egg custard pie. I have enjoyed it so much. Thanks, Sybil!
Ronald Sheppard is sick at this time.
Wesley Boles has new cabbage from his patch.
It is hard to believe the Blue Devils got beat for the second time by 27 points. The Tarheels are doing some better. They could do much better if they played Carolina Ball.
The produce store in Pilot Mountain is closed every Wednesday and so is the Francisco waste site. People are still going to these two places on Wednesday only to find out they are closed. A new rule at the dumpster site is needing an orange card to show the attendant to unload your trash. Please recycle the plastic and newspapers!
Tom Tilley had knee surgery recently and remains a patient in the Forsyth Memorial Hospital.
Alonzo Cox is a patient in the Forsyth Memorial Hospital.
Hallie Hall fell on the ice and was treated and released at the Northern Surry Hospital in Mt. Airy.
Nancy Speaks got her garden plowed before the rain and snow. She kept her turnip patch so she can get spring greens.
Sanders McHone is doing good after his stay in the hospital. Family members are taking care of him.
