Well Union County had a clean up day, last Saturday, including Lockhart, and as usual we had a little turnout, even though I tried to bribe you with a hot dog, chips, and drink at noon furnished by Barry Canupp. I had to work so I didn’t show up, but it was reported that we had about eight people. But they got a lot done. It’s just disappointing that so many complain about trash in Lockhart and then when they have a chance to help make a difference those are the ones that don’t show up.

Flea Market

There will be a flea market (yard sale), Friday and Saturday, from 7 a.m.-1 p.m. on Jonesville-Lockhart Highway, on the grounds in front of Red Walker’s store. Barry Canupp has built all of the tables and he’s the one in charge. Come on out and see what everyone has, you might find a treasure.

Troubling Development

Thank you to those of you that care if Robert gets his Boost and Ensure for his feeding tube. The doctors have told him that he should have about seven a day. That’s a lot for someone without finances. Now he has blisters coming in his mouth and lips. He told me water and ice is painful. So nothing is going down his throat.

Poor Man’s Supper

Wesley Chapel will be having a poor man’s supper, on Wednesday, April 7, at 5:30 p.m. They will be serving sliced ham, green beans, potato salad, rolls and tea. Desserts extra. Melody Farr will be singing. Come and join the fellowship.

Shut In Of The Month

Wesley Chapel’s shut in of the month is Preston McCutcheon, you can send a card or go by and visit him, that might make him feel better, his address is 141 Wildwood Lane, Union SC 29379.

‘Down By The River’ Festival

Don’t forget, Saturday, May 17, Jacob’s Well will be having their “Down By The River”Festival in the parking lot in the center of Lockhart. It will be from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. They will be selling souvenir t-shirts, there will be singing, vendors selling food and wares, blow up slides and games for the youngsters, corn hole tournaments, poker runs, etc. Come on out for the fun.

A Funny One

Here’s a funny for you, as you know in the past it doesn’t bother me to laugh and make fun of myself, so let me tell you about today.

I had a crown fall off (not on my head but in my mouth), so the dentist glued it back on. Well after two weeks it fell off, so I had to go to Spartanburg and get the post pulled out of my mouth. They packed the hole with gauze, so I ran around with a puffed up lip, and really couldn’t close my mouth very much.

I bent down to pick something up on the floor, and drooled on the floor. I couldn’t get it to stop, it kept coming out of that blasted gauze. Just couldn’t wait to get home and pull that thing out of my mouth.

Well one thing, those people won’t never see me again, now they might tell stories about that woman.


May 1, Esther Sue Eaves; May 2, Donna McMurry; on May 4 was my son, Tony’s, (who passed away at age 32 in 2001); the 5th Ronnie Eaves and Ian Gault; on the 7th, Thomas Scarborough, Joann Bazzell; on the 8th, Douglas Warr; and on the 9th are Jennifer Roberts and Tommy Eaves.


On the 2nd are Carolyn and Chris Patrick. On the 8th, PJ and Cheryl McCutcheon.

A few of my friends on Facebook got spammed. Well anyway, this woman got me first, but said these other people won $500,000 and so was I, all I had to do was tell her my full name, address, email address, sex, nationality, martial status.

I told her I had an appointment and would be back at a certain time. In the meantime I got a hold of the three people that I knew and she claimed had won. She had not contacted them at that point. She said Facebook was paying us this for them appreciating us contacting family and friends. She is a Facebook lottery agent. so be careful of this woman from California and her so-called name is Sarah Cole. Facebook spammed her so she must not work for them. Be careful.

Halloween Trick

I dressed up my dog as a mailman for Halloween. He bit himself.

Man And His Best Friend

Ever notice the similarities between man and man’s best friend? Both take up too much space on the bed. Both have irrational fears about vacuuming, Neither tells you what’s bothering him. Neither of them notices when you get your hair cut, and neither understands what you see in cats.

Mothers, Daughters, And Cats

My 18 year old daughter and I were sitting in the yard one afternoon when our cat sauntered by.

“That cat certainly has a great life,” I remarked. “She comes and goes just as she darn well pleases.”

“That,” my daughter replied dryly, “is because she doesn’t live with her mother.”

Well, I’m tired and it’s late. Hope I gave you some things to think about. I appreciate each one of you and enjoy the calls. Good night. 864-545-6652.
