“If everything seems to be doing well, you obviously overlooked something”
By Frances Brewer
Good morning! Well evidentially everything is going well haven’t heard too many complaints. Indeed, if we would stop, look and listen before we complete our agenda too far ahead, probably our complaints would slowdown. No way can we expect our days, weeks, and etc. to go perfect. Oh yes, if we could have our way what a terrible life it would be for sure. Yet let’s say, “Lord have thine own way!”
These April showers are so refreshing and the early gardener’s fever has dropped down to normal. Hay cutting time is here and the mowers are really busy. We may have to use a sling blade due to that high price of gas, car, tractor and mowers. You see that’s where the complaints are coming from. Just wait, what? The younger generation may have to get a degree by learning what the word ration means, pinch our nickels until the buffalo squeaks. Well Tri-Bee are you going back on your word complaint? No way! I do not know about tomorrow. The Lord cares for His own.
As usual for the Trinity church’s news for the past week continues to give a warm welcome to the many visitors who are coming in after seeing the church sign on 441. The R. V. program continues to meet each Friday night at 7 p.m.
Church-wide drop in wedding shower for Jonathan Philippi and Jenna Gray in the fellowship hall May 4 from 3 to 4.
A number of teens will be going to the Wilds in June.
We welcome a number who have recently united with the church, Tim and Cindy Cisser, Trish and Joey and Richard and Lisette Rushing who have built a beautiful house on Crawford Road.
Now lets check in on the closed in ones. A neglect from Tri-Bee, Lois Slaughter Whitaker passed away two weeks ago. Lois was the sister-in-law of Estelle Slaughter and sister of the late Frank Slaughter. Lois attended Buckhead School. She had been a nursecare patient for quite a while.
Felton Smith passed away just recently in the nursing home in Monroe. Felton is the last one of the children of the late Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Smith who lived near Zion Road out of Buckhead. A number of relatives and friends attended the graveside service in Buckhead Cemetery.
Martha Sue Harper, at this writing, is a patient here in the hospital. She always gets a real warm welcome and always brightens up the hospital.
Marvin and Betty Ingalsbe enjoyed their family being home on the weekend to celebrate Marvin’s birthday. They included Cheryl and Bryan Alexander, Mary Ann, all of Douglasville, Amy Alexander Witcher of Villa Rica, Debbie Sebastian, Aaron and Kayle of Bowling Green, Indiana, Mary Jo and Billy Haselton, Caleb and Kara of Burlington, North Carolina, David and Debbie Ingalsbe, Nate, Nicole, Abigail and Lilly Beth of Rutledge. We trust for Marvin many more birthdays.
On Sunday night all of Jake and Blanche’s family enjoyed seeing Bertie and Leon Alligood from Lebanon, Tennessee, Shep Alligood from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Arthur, Tracy and Corbin Alligood from White House, Tennessee. They were on their way back from an Alligood reunion in Meigs over the weekend. While there they had also had a birthday celebration for Leon’s father, Jesse Alligood in honor of his 80th birthday.
Rachel Harper spent part of last week with Tim and Casey Wilson in Roswell, while Kathy was in Mexico City on a business trip. Tim is still laid up with his broken leg but is gradually getting better.
Tri-Bee News wishes Josh Stephens, son of Sally and Tony Stephens, a speedy recovery. He was operated on this past weekend for appendicitis in Augusta. Josh is a college student in Augusta. Sally is with him until he gets on his feet.
The Tri-Bee community also wants to wish Harriette Wade a belated birthday. Her two daughters, Sally and Sandra, and all of their children and grandchildren placed flowers in the Methodist Church last Sunday in her honor, which were lovingly done by her granddaughter, Laurie Lewis. After church the family all enjoyed getting together for lunch and visiting at Harriette’s house. She enjoyed a wonderful 89th birthday.
Larry and Crew Brewer and Hilda were down with Ralph Brewer to see if he has his garden going, which he does without their permission. Crew’s health is somewhat holding him back due to his asthma problems.
Now lets go over on the Greensboro Road to check in on Georgie Mae Carpenter. The three nurses report that her health problems are slowly. Then Dorothy Bumgarner’s doctor’s appointments to Alabama as usual pill to pill, ache and pains. Dorothy enjoys her friends dropping in.
Well Tri-Bee why? What? Come up with something different. Well we’re looking forward to the Tour of Homes. My Air-Mail Box, red, white, blue, Box No. 4411, 2x4 split-level with everything inside, SPLIT with the exception of a large blue mixing bowl, which is a wedding present purchased at Madison Hardware for 50 cents from the late Jim and Winnie Harwood. Kitchen cabinet purchased from Hunter’s Furniture, now Jim Boyd’s Insurance, for $35. Everything is antique including the lady who keeps up with the Coon Creek neighbors. Not only antique, old-fashioned, set in her ways, hard to please, may not be able to vote, but by the time voting time gets here I may not be able to even be riding on “Cloud Nine.” Pride cometh before the fall.
