Where are they now?

Larry Meek  died last Wednesday.  His name was Larry Cleve Meek.  That Cleve is from his grandfather, Cleveland.  In looking for his obituary [ it is here Larry Meek ] at Nelson's, I found another obituary for a former neighbor.

Bobbie Jean Stone of Sebring, Fla., formerly of Green Forest, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, June 30, 2015 in Sebring at the age of 82 years.
She was born Mar. 23, 1933 in Green Forest to Chalmer and Clara Lee (McNeil) Stone. She attended school and graduated salutatorian of her class in 1951. She attended Biola Bible College in Los Angeles, Calif. where she graduated in 1955.

In 1986 she joined the staff of the Sudan Interior Mission in Charlotte, N.C. where she worked in various departments until her retirement in 1998. She then moved to the SIM Retirement Village in Sebring where she still served the Lord until moving on to her home in heaven.

Memorial service and burial were both Thursday, July 2, 2015 in Sebring, Fl.



I was looking for something else and ran across this on my computer earlier in the week.

I think this one was taken the same day.

Clayton and Helen at Christmas, so I can search the blog and find these.  Easier than searching my computer.  There was a time when windows would search the computer for pictures or document and you could tell it what to search for.  Now, search only has one search box and when I search it mostly brings up hundreds of emails that have nothing to do with what I am looking for.  I have thousands upon thousands of images and documents on  my drive, so finding things is much like remembering peoples names.  Hopeless.

Happy Birthday...

We had a great birthday at Church.  Pizza party and cupcakes.  I got 5 pizzas and 3 orders of bread sticks and it was just enough.

Miles to go...

Is 120.  I have logged 1130 miles this year.  I figured I needed 1250 to get to Charles and Sarah's place in Fredericksburg, VA.  Actually, that is going by way of St. Louis, to Perryville, to South Boston, then Fredericksburg.  Google says it is only 1108 miles from home to Fredericksburg.  I think I can say I am there and just walking around visiting relatives with Charles.  Maybe, I can spend Christmas with The Duke and Elizabeth.  My original goal was 100 miles each month this year, and I will make that easily.

Today, is my last day off work.  George and I are taking  him to the eye doctor today.  Then back to work tomorrow.

And, I have to make cupcakes and maybe cheese cake to take to Church tomorrow evening for Hannah's birthday.  This weekend will be our party here at the house.  I have to go order her a cake for that.  She says my cakes are ugly.

The house that Daddy built, early Sunday morning.

Saturday, goats and deer in same pic.  The first time I have been able to get them in the same frame.

Thanksgiving morning coming down.

Saturday, while Greg took the kids to Branson, George and I drove down to the Buffalo.  We say the elk and one swan on the mill pond.  I guess the swan has lost its mate.  Greg took the kids somewhere to do something each day he was home this time.  It was nice to  have time to do things like get Lane's cookies finished.  But, it has rained every single day since Thanksgiving.  It has stopped now, but turned colder.

The Buffalo rolling.

Hannah and I got the Church Christmas cards completed.  Robert would not  help.  I told him I was going to mark his name off the cards.  He was not concerned.  His only interests is presents for himself.  I did ask if he knew what the photo on our cards was and he said, 'Our Church'.
