Jeff Alliston was one of the Georgia Power men that went to help the people in Louisiana and Mississippi following the latest hurricane. They were gone two weeks. I’m sure everyone was glad to get home to their own beds to sleep after working 16 hours.
Dean Strange has been in the hospital again but is home now.
Frances Huff Harmon was up from Florida for a brief visit. Gwen Alliston wished that her sister could have been home longer.
Happy birthday to George Lohr! Pam Hendrix and sons came on the 13 of September to help celebrate.
I wish a belated happy birthday to Jay Moon on Sept. 9.
Sara Nell Bonner had supper Friday night with Hazel Jordan.
The Lake Oconee Baptist Chapel will have their Sunday night singing next week.
If you have a zip code of 30625 you can have your cat or dog “fixed” where there will be no more babies. There are stray cats and dogs in some areas that have no homes. They are hungry and can cause great problems. Sometimes people have an abundance of cats or dogs. They just let them run loose to make it on their own. We are so fortunate here with the Buckhead 30625 zip code to be able to get a certificate to go to one of the vets to get your animal taken care of. That was very generous. I believe that it was PetSmart.
Earl, Almedia and Billy and Donna Hinesley had Tammy and her husband Bobby and Nancy Collins and Lilly Mae and Rassey and Edna Smith to visit on Sunday.
I’m sure that you have noticed the trees changing colors. It must be an early fall. There is one pretty tree on our land across the road. Some of the oak leaves are falling. Only one oak tree in our yard has acorns. Last year there were none. We have one very large oak that lightening struck several years ago. It came down on the roots. I am so grateful that it didn’t hit the house. Last week a great number of crows were in the woods eating all the acorns that they could get. I felt so bad the poor squirrles that came from across the road to try to find something to eat. I have supplemented some with a birdfeeder.
The Rev. Fred Rowell will be the minister on Sunday in the absence of the pastor being away on vacation. On September 30 Dr. Robert Pepper, who is a missionary and the son-in-law of Bill and Peggy Lanier will be the speaker at the Buckhead Baptist Church. You are invited to hear these men or to visit any time.
Susan Johnston spent Monday night with John and Gail Wade. Susan is Gail’s sister.

I must tell you that the paper that the youth group at the Lake Oconee Baptist Chapel puts out has begun again. It stopped for the summer months while school was out. Teresa Wallace is the advisor to the youth. Each youth writes a part. Teresa writes a part that teaches and is this time on humility. I’ll tell you she writes very well. This time she is writing about her father, Ted Wallace when he was a little boy. You need to find a copy that is free at several locations. I have listed the locations where they are available. Listed is a copy of where you may find the youth publication from the Oconee Baptist Chapel, “News from the Vine.” Sugar Creek Marina, Blue Springs Marine, Rutledge Yesterday Café, Bostwick – Claudine Leachmon, Madison Drug, Medicine Shop, Ye Olde Colonial, Hair Mastery, Wash Rock, Madison Senior Center, Laundry Mat at Covington, Thrift Stores, June Wallace Piano Studio. Pick up a free copy, “Views from the Vines.”
I want to mention this – Prince Avenue Baptist Church is hosting its vey first 5K. The “well worth it 5K” and “1 mile fun run/walk,” on Saturday, Oct. 13 at 4 p.m. This is to raise funds to drill wells in Honduras where the population is high. The water is limited to cisterns, run-off water services and creeks. To participate in the 5K race register at www.active.com. To become a sponsor call Nicole Dunn at 678-753-3141. I suppose that you could call that number for information.
