Didn't even wear a coat. Three peo- ple planted gardens last week, one person planted po- tatoes, cabbage, collards, spinach and onions, two oth- ers planted potatoes and onions, you can also plant green beans, kinda makes me want a garden! This February has had a lot of 60th wedding anniver- s~ies. Besides my sister and brother-in-law's last week, on Fel~ruary 24th Beth and Os- borne Williams will have their 60th. Honey and John- hie Manning will have their 60th. All these people have or do live in Cross Roads.

Everyone loves Pete and his dear wife Murlene. Then Bob Ledbetter said he wouldn't tell his age when asked how old he was last year. Said a year older than last year, Bob you better be nice or Santa Clause won't come to see you! The 23rd, Sidney Sneed is younger, so we don worry, if he told the Emily .. ..

His answer was, "If I go that way, you'll know I went happy. Be thank- ful." Easy for him to say. Lakes don't appeal to my fisherman; neither does a part- ner who can't remain quiet. He's not too happy about any- one with him who gets close to his casting spot. In other words, he may be his favorite person to accompany him. 1 would be out of the boat and back on bank within ten min- utes. After a well-told story of a trip decades ago, he never asked me seriously to go with him again. On Caney Creek Clam Jo Davis truth or not[ The 24th look out!

I've tried to get an, ap- pointment with my doctor, called twice, didn't get to talk with him so I called 911 and an ambulance came after me causing neighbors to look out their windows. I did call one, to tell her I would be going to the ER room. That's the best way, they will see you pretty quick, anyway, l did see a very nice doctor. He did talk to my regular doctor that was what I want- ed. You know when you are little, you wanted your "mother", she could make you feel better; same with my doctor, he makes me feel better! We still have sick people, Mr. T.C. Brannon has been in the hospital, Wanda Mar- shall, a lady I've known a long time fell over a broom and broke a hip, so sorry about this! Just learned this week that John Clay from Cross Roads fell on the ice and snow, he also broke either a hip or his back. Tony Douglas is feel- ing better, his guest Sunday were a son and his wife from Jacksonville! A neighbor brought me some fresh pulled from the garden, pur- ple top turnips, no greens, they were so good! The widows will eat out tomorrow. 1 lost a set of keys Friday, looked and looked, in pants pockets, coat pockets on the sidewalk at the mail- box. I do have another set, but liked that set better. I have looked in the trash can, clothes hamper, took dirty clothes out one at a time, thought of offering a $5 re- ward for them! Monday morning after the hamper deal, pushed it back in place, there were the keys on the floor, so you see I saved money, the $5. I would have given away!

Be happy and love every- bodyl "Love you l" in Henderson County, in a rugged land area, we, two teenage daughters and I, met Dad who was fishing and camping with a brother and his wife. This was a hot summer night, and the mos- quitoes were hungry. I had a toothache, not too happy, and did not even nap. The next morning a dentist was going to meet me in Mabank to take action with the tooth. Early at sunrise, the daugh- ters decided to leave with me for home• Dad had to take us by motor boat to my car. We were crossing the shallow end oftbe lake with our pil- lows and makeup bags when water began lashing over the back of our boat. Soon water filled the boat, and out we all went. To our surprise we could touch bottom. Thus, we walked through the water, pillows and bags above our heads, single-file, following our captain. Every time my husband tells this story, he embellishes it more. Of course, w ght of the passim- gets (guess which one) comes up, and I try to tune the story out. Talk about sullen daughters• This was over thirty yeats ago when these girls wouldn't fuss aloud much. but 1 knew their thoughts. Living in East Texas, sit- ring on the porch with a neighbor as we watched :my husband returning home after time spent in "heaven," my neighbor said, "If you have ever worded that another woman might be involved in these fishing excursions, don . Have you seen how he's dressed and smelled the fish all over him?" He has come upon some trysting spots that involved couples, not expecting to be seen. He says he has spoken, "Hello, how are fall today and continued on his mission, going around them. No, he can keep on fishing by himself.l have too much I want to do by myself. 1.
