he Boese family — John, Michele, Dylan, and Eric were out of electricity Tuesday evening so they came to stay with me. They stayed until Friday evening when the electricity came back.

Stan went and got Opal Craney Wednesday and she was here until Monday evening when her lights came back. Carol and Helen Logan spent all day Thursday with us. We all had a good time. Sure did look like a winter wonderland. Was glad to see the ice go and then we had snow.

Don Gillet spent Thursday afternoon with us all.

LaVonne and Michele decorated cakes for the Morgan's 50th anniversary Friday and Opal was our critic.

Sunday afternoon Opal and LaVonne went to the Morgans' 50th anniversary. Sure was a lovely celebration. Fifty years, wow!

I took Maudie to the doctor Tuesday afternoon and we came through Peabody. Everything is sure muddy and slushy.

I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.
