Get those floats started. Dec. 4 (the first Sunday in December) is going to be here before we know it and I want you to be one of the winners.
If you are a vendor and want to come and set up free, see Barry Canupp and he’ll place you somewhere in the heart of things. I hope the Chester Shriners that come every year will come and sell their wares.
If someone sees Sonny Porter ask him, because without the Grapevines going across the river anymore it’s not easy to get messages to them from me. The parade will be at 3 p.m. as usual. Call Barry at 429-7051, Jeannie at 251-0555 or me at 545-6652 if you have any questions.
This Saturday, Nov. 5, at 6 p.m. at the Lockhart Methodist Church, the Crist Family will be singing . The admission will be a love offering. The church is located on N. 1st Street, one street behind Mill Street where the Town Hall is. Follow the cars, you can’t miss it. And if you come at 4:30, you can enjoy a meal consisting of baked spaghetti, salad, and garlic bread with tea at just $6 per plate in the church’s basement dining room. If you need more information just call Kathy at 251-1166. Enjoy!
Were you one of the thousands that enjoyed Halloween in Lockhart on Monday night? If not, you really missed out on a lot of fun. You need to find a parking place for your car, cause once you are in Lockhart you are swallowed up by the crowd, going up and down the streets.They come from York, Chester, Union, and no telling where else, but every year they come because they know that Lockhart goes all out in passing out candy. Even some that don’t live here come and join friends on their porch to pass out candy and see all the little ones all dressed up and excited.
I told you last week what my place used to be like on Halloween night, so multiply that by an extra 100 or so houses. Now the party really starts at N. 1st Street and moves south and up the hill. Guess who missed the fun this year? Me! We made sure we had enough candy and even bought extra. We had to go to Greenville and never made it back until 11 p.m. That’s a first. If I’m not home, I’m at the shop on that night passing out candy. Of course I’m not in the Heart of Town anymore, but my friends hunt me down. So I’m sorry, but there’s next year.
Harvey Peeler came to the Town Hall for a visit Tuesday. I hope all of you that came out to greet him enjoyed his visit and had a chance to talk to him about what issues you’d like him to address. He promised to bring his Cow and be in the Christmas Parade this year. I remember when his family was in the milk business, he had his Cow in our early parades (when I first moved here). You know it’s getting to be campaign season so maybe he’ll be back to answer more questions in the near future. I’ll try to keep you posted. This time I didn’t know until the last minute.
I’ve gotten some very pleasant phone calls from Union residents telling me that you look forward to my letter on Friday. Thank you all. Sometimes I get discouraged because I don’t have any news and I really have to pull things out of my brain. Hang in there with me, we’ll make it.
What is it with camping? I thought it was a summer sport. Doesn’t it get too cold to camp? What happened to warm motel rooms, where someone comes in and makes up the bed and cleans up after you?
Is it really fun to shiver around a camp fire, that you had to go out and chop wood for, and sit on stumps that are so hard that you need a chiropractor for when you get home to put the hips and legs back in shape. Mine hurt bad enough without sitting crosslegged on the ground. Dr. Sherman thinks she has it rough with my aches and pains now, just think of what I’d be whining about after a camping trip. I’ll just make you a bet no one would ever ask me to go camping, thank you. I’ll just have to tell you of some of my experiences in camping , one day. I’ll keep you wondering for another time.
Anyway, Anita and Marvin went last weekend, somewhere, all I know is it consisted of camping. Scott and Brad Parris took their families camping also. They all have camper trailers, but so what, it’s still camping. I need to drag out my son’s tents and have a yard sale just on camping equipment, he thought it was great also. Maybe he’s camping out in heaven with everyone else that likes that sort of thing. Oh well!
There are 5 types of personalities, see which one you are:
1. Analyzer — You question everything you do.Why? You dress very put together, everything matches, nothing fake, everything expensive.
2. Cooperator — Easy, anything you want to do is fine. Dress in lots of pink, little earrings. Small jewelry, don’t want to draw attention to yourself.
3. Energizer — Fun, bubbly talking. The center of attention. Demand attention. Fun loving. Don’t match and don’t care. No real jewelry. You can always change her, suggest to her.
4. Regulator — Wants to be on time and get things done. No conversation. On a very strict schedule. She talks to you, you don’t talk to her.
5. Special Needs and Senile — Spends money and needs attention. Maybe doesn’t have anyone at home.
Okay, did you find yourself in one of these. Which one is me? MMMMM!
That was a little something I picked up when I went to school for the day to renew my beauty license this year.
My sympathy goes out to Lettie Wilson and family for the loss of Edwin, last week. And the Mac Lee family.
I see that Marvin Montgomery has a birthday, Nov. 5, and Jeri Lynn Rash on the 6th.
Happy anniversary to Brandie and Robert Gilliam, Nov. 3.
I hope Marvin shoots a deer for his birthday, or Brother Chuck gets him one for a present on Saturday. Mr. Larry Grant got one on Lockhart Drive last week, but not with a gun. He got an 8 pointer with his car. I’m so glad he was not hurt. See fellas, they’re out there, you just aren’t looking in the right places. You need to be in the middle of the road instead of the woods.
Well, I just looked at the clock and it’s about 4 a.m. and I need to be up at 7:30. No wonder I’m not getting any beauty sleep. I’ll see you next week. Goodnight. 545-6652
