“What? Yes, old age to me is always around 15 years older than I am!”
By Frances Brewer
Good morning. In other words the word old age is nothing more than what’s written on the front page of your Bible. Yet now it’s not all the same date, the one in my Bible is 7-27-18. But I cannot help but believe mom and dad wrote it down wrong. Too on all the other references that’s the same date. Let me tell you that does not bother me not one bit. Yet sometimes we might forget why I looked in the fridge or even might forget names. Too, it could possible be you remembered and can’t remember what you forgot. Your hair may have changed to somewhat of a lighter color. Well that could be sunburned. One more thing your steps are slightly slowing down. Well those old shoes are getting rather slick on the bottom. After all I might catch myself longing for the good old days; feeling they were better. Oh yes I’ll admit I’m not getting any younger. Lets look at it this way “old” people can accomplish a lot if they (we) will just remember to stay “young”, with thanks to Him,
It was indeed a good message for the morning service at Trinity, the children’s church. Pastor Jerry with the assistant pastor Tim Davenport and a number of the young people gave a good report on how the Lord did work in the lives of so many, which was in North Carolina.
The fathers were recognized. Also at Bethany as Ralph Brewer was the oldest (94). His family was at his home on Sunday.
Well you’ll just have to bear with me! It seems, as if I’ll have to start a repeat from way back with old timey tales yet were true.
On Saturday morning the Trinity Church was filled with not only the Slaughter families, but also many friends attended and showed their respect in the loss of Susie Slaughter Ross. The Slaughter boys are well known throughout the county for their electrical work and other areas. A number of churches throughout the county were represented.
Sometimes we might not desire to give in to our feelings yet Tommy Cathey’s wife Raynor kept the hospital company for several days, mostly bronchitis, but back at home.
Inez Brewer and Tri-Bee really were surprised and enjoyed an old friend and neighbor Mrs. Mae Lastinger from near Marietta visiting with us Thursday afternoon. Mae was returning from visiting near Tifton.
The Bearden children enjoyed lunch last Tuesday at the Blue Willow Inn and celebrated Jim Bearden’s birthday.
Stacy and Franklin Eaton spent Father’s Day with their parents, Mary and Frank Eaton, and attended services at Bethany. Curtis Eaton has also been a recent guest of his parents while attending Georgia Power Company meetings in Milledgeville.
Carolyn Eaton Patton was honored on her 80th birthday last Saturday in Rutledge, hosted by her children and grandchildren. Approximately 80 friends and relatives helped her celebrate with an ice cream social.
Mr. and Mrs. Joe Sabbadino and their two boys from Taylor, South Carolina attended services at Trinity Sunday and enjoyed the day with Nell Porter.
Stacey and Rene Gray visited with their parents, Kenneth and Linda Gray, in Harlense, over the weekend.
You know during recent conversations especially those who have grown corn oh! How we would enjoy some good old ground corn meal. Well probably later on I’ll tell you all about the grist mill we have out in the old smoke house. In fact in the year 1996 James Melvin, Glenn and Bruce Harper did get the mill in operation and ground several bushels of corn. Oh well there’ll probably be a number of old tales with a happy ending revealed in this column as news comes in rather slowly.
In fact as you saw in the paper getting first place you might not have it. Boy did Tri Bee. Why? Well not the first thing was stated ‘bout that “Blue Check.” Oh, no Patrick no doubt felt “some what guilty”. If it were not for that “Blue Check” what? Just pause a moment and say Lord, trust that every day will draw us all closer and let that smile continue to spread.
