Friday, May 20, 2011 - The MalakoffNews - Page 7A e o o Trinidad Tales ........................................................ The rain was so nice, some got nearly two inches, that was needed! 1 had a really good week, made myself go and visit friends in South Place nursing home: had friends there several years. First I saw Pearl Williams from Cross Roads, she is new, won't have to stay very, hmg. While with her, she was in a wheelchair, by the window, her daughter Joyce was in the reclin- er, so where would I sit? Pearl said Clara, sit on lhe bed. Well I did, and in a tbw minutes, that thing started filling up with air, tblding around my bottom and "humped" up in the mid- die! Joyce left so I got lhe chair. It was good to see her! Next. I visited Willie Fern Glove,. she has been there several years. We worked together 50 years ago at the \~sserette! Her two daughters came in, Mar2,.' I::crn and Nanc. I baked both of their wedding cakes over 40 years ago. Next went through the lunch room, there was a little lady sitting by her- sell' waiting to eat sup- per, only about 4 p.m. 1 spoke to her, she grabbed my hands and said, you can sit in that chair and talk to me. I long, bu.t should have! Fron~.there went to see Gene Hall, didn't stay to long, she wasn't feeling too good! Next was Leon John- Clara Jo Davis Cross Roads News son, they still don't know what is wrong with him. He didn't talk much, not like him! Then there was Ruby Slogner, I kinda knew her. Any way we had a good time. We gig- gled and laughed, talked about relatives, hers not mine. I don't have enough left to talk about. We did say good things about them. One nephew had brought her two fresh homegrown onions from his garden. I saw then in a zip lock bag, looked like bird eggs to me, so I picked up the sack and looked closer, they were peeled! Mary drove me to town, then put me out at the nursing home. I told her 1 would walk home, my apartment is just across the driveway. A nurse let me out the back door and showed me where to go. 1 had not walked it before, was OK didn't have any steps to go up. I had such a good time. I'm going back and visit more of my friends. Most of these people would enjoy your visitt Marie Watson, has been in the Athens hos- pital, also Avon Lewis, she went home, still -: needs our prayers! Mutt and Raymond Rodgers from Malakoff are both in a Tyler hos- pital, or were, both are' in bad health! We had a nice crowd at Landmark Baptist church Sunday, had some visitors, we hope will Soon be members! It's a good church! Very friendly! We have a 5th Sunday this month, so that means the ladies will get up early and fix their "pot luck." meal, that we share at the church, after the morn- ing service. We enjoy that too! Last Friday was Friday 13th, won't be many this year. This week 1 have a "fly story,." do you know a fly is smart'? They sure are! One day last week a fly got in my house. We don't have screen doors, so if you open the front door for very long, in comes a fly. Well, I got a fly swatter. 1 sat at the table, there was the fly. I swatted at it, of course I didn't hit it. I tried sever- al more times, that smart fly knew 1 was after it. How do they know that? Finally gave up. The next day it was on the kitchen window, oh boy, so got the swatter again, kinda got behind the blind. I did hit it just enough to slow it down, after four or five good licks did the job! The rest of the month will be busy, so stay happy, go visit someone at the .nursing homo, it will bless you as much as the people. Take care, and thanks for reading!
