Wednesday, Oct. 6, Shirley Stinson and Wyvetta Davis enjoyed going to Fat Boys for lunch then on over to Clarksville, Mo to the Clarksville Antique Center. Even though we never even looked at all the antiques (and folks there are gobs of these over there), we certainly enjoyed going through the book room and even purchased a few. We stopped at Ackles on the way back. We both had an enjoyable day.
Besides having a good meal, I enjoyed a good visit with Joe and Katy Winner at C.J.’s in Milton for lunch Sunday, Oct. 10. I appreciate being included.
God listens, God leads, God provides…..Pray like you’ve never prayed before.
