Sis had an infection in her big toe, sometimes it was unbearable. She went to the doctor and she advised her to have the infected toe removed. Sis agreed and went to the hospital for the surgery. She was in surgery about two hours when the doctor came and said to her, “Mrs. Haney, I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is we cut off the wrong big toe, the good news is that there is nothing wrong with your other big toe.”
It is 11 p.m.; do you know where your goat is?
Sis and I would like to thank the nurses and staff at Wallace Thomson Hospital, those on the third floor and also the nurses and staff in ICU. They were good to Sis while she was there, and we are grateful to have a good hospital in Union.

Cause For Concern
David Knox is upset with the power line folks. He tells me that they are spraying a powerful weed and brush killer along the power lines. Davis says this is killing off lots of honey bees that are very much needed for pollination. They used to cut the right of ways with a bush axe and a bush hog. We need our honey bees.
Ruby Harris recently celebrated a birthday, she tells me that she is looking for a sugar daddy to help with the dishes and the kids.

Sis Votes Against A Needless Expenditure
Sis was leaving church last Sunday when Rev. Glenn Ribelin stopped and said, “Sis, I was planning to call a board meeting to vote on buying a new chandelier for the sanctuary, and I was wondering how you would vote.’
Sis told the preacher, “Well, Reverend, I would have to vote no, because we need new lights, and besides, I’ll bet no one in the church knows how to play one.”
