Vis­its From Grands & Great-Grands

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

School is in full swing, with re­ports of tests al­ready. Our older stu­dents are work­ing jobs part time and tak­ing col­lege cour­ses in high school, to cut down on ex­penses later.

How­ever, I en­joyed vis­its with some grand­chil­dren and great-grand­chil­dren the last part of Au­gust and into Sept. 1.

Karen and Brit­tany stopped for a visit one day. Janet and Me­gan and two lit­tle ones vis­ited, while Janet gave me a pedi­cure! Brian came one af­ter­noon with his lawn mower, but found I had al­ready mowed, so we had a good long visit. Dean stopped by on his way home to Van Buren, like old times when he was go­ing to col­lege in Fort Smith and would stop by every week. Craig and Sh­eryl and three chil­dren spent Satur­day morn­ing with me and he in­sisted on go­ing over the lawn with the mower. Af­ter a good visit, they went to Craig’s other grandma, Gerda, where they were hav­ing a fam­ily din­ner, then they went home, in Rogers where Ma­son had a foot­ball game at 3 p.m.

Satur­day af­ter­noon, Misty and Kate came for a visit, bring­ing a bag of good old Arkansas Jonathan ap­ples, ripe-on-the-tree de­li­cious.

Dur­ing the week, Johnny cleaned out the road ditch and fence row of the in­va­sive John­son grass. Anna brought more to­ma­toes. She picked some be­fore they were ripe, and I have en­joyed Fried Green To­ma­toes!

Lin­coln Cen­ter mem­bers will leave at 8 a.m. on Sept. 14 to visit Judge Park­ers’ Mu­seum in Fort Smith, with lunch at Ge­orges.

Happy birth­day to Pa­trick Swope, Krista Boyd, Kelly McJunkin, Linda Free­man, Gene Pharr, Billy Reed, Mary Ann Lock­hart, Isa­iah King, Barbara (Mrs. Bill) Griscom, Teresa Per­shall, Paulette Carl­ton, John Mun­yon, Pam Wat­son, Jen­nifer Can­non.

Happy an­niver­sary to Rick and Ray­lene Reed, Dick and Nikki Bradley.

Happy years, all!
