An­other Birth­day Cel­e­bra­tion: 99 Years Old

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - COMMUNITY - MARIE ROY WCN Colum­nist

An­other spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion in our area was Sun­day, Aug. 20, when friends and fam­ily gath­ered in the home of Lois Norvell to help her cel­e­brate her 99th birth­day. There were at least 68 present for the come and go event. Lois said they “just kept a com­ing.” To make it even more spe­cial for Lois, was the pres­ence of her daugh­ter Wanda Vis­caria of Fresno, Calif., and grand­son and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Danny Vis­caria from Tulsa, all of whom left Thurs­day for their homes, af­ter a sev­eral days visit.

As these months usu­ally do, September is slip­ping upon us, and September is fall hat month, school suc­cess, lit­tle league, youth pas­tors ap­pre­ci­a­tion, chil­dren’s eye health and safety, chil­dren’s good man­ners, baby safety, re­union plan­ning, South­ern Gospel Mu­sic, li­brary card sign-up, coupon, pi­ano, bis­cuit, chicken, potato, mush­room, honey, rice, sewing, and Be Kind to Ed­i­tors and Writ­ers month. And there is La­bor Day, Pa­tri­ots’ Day, Grand­par­ents Day, Con­sti­tu­tion Day, and the first day of Au­tumn.

Some hu­mor to start the month: A small-town farmer, his wife and son went to visit the city for the first time. While the wife went shop­ping, the man and his son ex­plored the huge build­ings. Upon en­ter­ing one skyscraper they saw an el­e­va­tor open, an old woman en­ters, and the door close. A cou­ple min­utes later, the doors opened and a young woman stepped out. ” Hurry, son,” said the man, “Go get your ma. I’m gonna run her through this ma­chine.”

Happy birth­day to Re­bekah Pitts, Mal­lory Pruitt, and Noah Pruitt (twins), Vera Dun­na­gan, Jimmy Huf­faker, Lou Ann Ever­soll, Mar­garet May­hue, Noah King, Evonne Os­born, Tom Lock­hart, Jared Mun­yon, Jeff Barnes, Phillip Karnes, Bar­bara Goolsby, Rick Reed.

Happy an­niver­sary to Ra­mon and Feli­cia Ramirez.

Happy years, all!
