Dog surgeries, colds, coughs and more Buckhead news
I guess that I will call this the Buckhead column of no news with the weather so cold and following the holiday there is not much going on. I was AWOL last week. We met our son-in-law Bill Kincaid at Monroe to take their dog that lives with us to the holistic vet that “Skittles” goes to. The dog had had extensive dental surgery and a growth removed from his neck that was non-cancerous. (We sure prayed about the potential of him having cancer). At any rate by the time that we met Bill, rode to Stone Mountain and back I did not get news.
Jim and Donna Mize of Robbinsville, North Carolina visited Barbara Tyson this week. They are former Apalachee Woods residents.
The Swords United Methodist Church is having a “Discipleship” Bible study on Sunday nights at 6 p.m. There will be several more nights of study. You are welcome to attend.
Gail Wade has had eye problems lately with no stroke.
Several ladies spent the day in Augusta visiting Leta Allmand.
Earl and Amelia Smith had her sister and brother-in-law Nancy and Bobby Collins from Winder to visit on Sunday.
Little Ruthie Hinesley was not ready yet for her surgery on her feet. Ruthie will turn three years old on January 31. She’s been through quite an ordeal with her feet accidentally cut off by a lawn mower last summer.
I understand that the Chuck Fosters have not felt well with colds and coughs lately. There must be lots of that going around. I hope that you all feel better soon.
Several people from Morgan Estates went to the funeral of Taylor Kinchen recently. We send our sympathy to the family and friends over the loss of such a special child.
Pam Hendrix and boys ate lunch on Sunday with her parents, George and Laura Lohr.
Susan Blackburn and Gail Davis came to visit their dad John Milliken on the one-year anniversary of Annette Milliken’s death. John prepared the meal and oh from the sound of his menu those girls had to have been in for quite a treat. And his dessert was apparently outstanding! He has learned to be quite a cook since his wife’s death. He said that he used to almost burn water. John is not shy in giving God credit for his help in the last year. You know God is able, willing and wants to be our helper. But we need to allow Him to do so. John has done that.
Mark Wilkins Construction Company recently completed the new house of Jeffrey and Michelle Thrasher in Walton County. They were lucky to move in before Christmas.
When Ernie and Theresa Thrasher were in Augusta at the Veterans Hospital they stopped by to see Alvin Huff.
I suffered a fall one day last week on my carport. It shook me up pretty much. Two days later I had a planned epidermal at the pain management clinic for the fibromylagia that I have. Sometimes you can’t take medication like those advertised on TV because of conflict with other medicines. So with the fall I can’t claim a great rate of improvement but am thankful for no broken bones. With the Lord’s help I try to keep going.
