Maxine and Randy Rogers came by with some hay for his donkeys. He said that Tonya Crow had painted some pictures of his mom and dad. This afternoon, he went down to the pond behind his house to break the ice. He had talked with his sister, Maxine, before he left and she told him to call as soon as he got back. When she couldn't get him on the phone, she called 9-1-1 and told them that he had went to break the ice on the pond and where at. When they arrived, he was laying by the pond, nearly frozen to death. He couldn't even speak. They took him to the hospital. Tuesday he was back home recuperating. Maxine left on Wednesday. We hope that everything will be okay.
Congratulations to Kristina Michelle Hull who was on the Arkansas Tech University Fall 2020 Dean's list. She is the daughter of Trish and Michael Hull of Western Grove. She is the granddaughter of Melvin and Rain Wilson of Harrison.
On Monday morning, we had been leaving the water dripping. As my daughter, Lynda, had been taking a shower, the water suddenly quit working and she had to get out of the shower with conditioner still in her hair. We tried the other faucet and was frozen as well. Rhonda Pemberton, our neighbor, came and brought two huge buckets of water. We had conserved water in all our big kettles just in case. At least we still have electricity. On Saturday, Rhonda Pemberton came by briefly and left a huge cookie for Valentine's Day.
