Changes in the weather prove what they say about our state

By Jo Ellen Dale

At last, a good rain.  It has washed away much of the snow and ice, but I really believe that the huge mounds around the square will not melt until June. As I drove to the American Legion building early this morning, I noticed that many cars did not have their lights on but the windshield wipers were going full blast.  Don’t forget that you must have the lights on if the wipers are running.

Wednesday evening, Bonnie Pointer McCalley, her daughter Elise and I went to Orrick to Fubbler’s Cafe because they serve breakfast all day. Elise has been subbing in the high school there and our waitress was a girl she had in class. I must say we had excellent service.

Carol Farris has just returned from a trip to California to visit family.  She was glad to get to a warmer climate for awhile and to visit with children and grandchildren.

Friday as usual, I met friends for lunch at the 19th Hole.  We were so happy that Lucille Gill and Billie Hampton were able to join us.  Rotary was also meeting and I am told that the program was presented by Superintendent Kizzire on how they are instructing students on safety measures in the wake of the terrible shootings occurring at other schools. A timely and much needed program.

Saturday morning, I attended the Masons’ biscuit and gravy breakfast at their lodge.  It was well attended and the biscuits were delicious.  As I have said before, I had too much gravy when I was a child and prefer to do without it.  I saw many friends and again sat at a table with Lucille Gill and Billie Hampton.  Ray Gill joined us.  I missed seeing Allen White, a former student, who had to be out of town.

Saturday at noon my son Chuck came to have lunch with me.  As usual we ate at the 19th Hole and I had my favorite,  shrimp and salad. They really know how to cook the shrimp as if it’s cooked one second too long, it will be tough. But they do it to perfection.

From and almost record high temperature on Saturday, the temperature dropped into the teens on Sunday.  Just goes to prove the old saying about Missouri weather, “ If you don’t like the weather just wait a minute and it will change.”

Stay warm and keep sending your news.
