More Good Recipes Ex­changed

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

I was happy to read the let­ter to the edi­tor from Carl Wade Cheatham re­cently. I knew that his sis­ter Loretta was one of the sur­vivors of the ’28 tor­nado, but I hadn’t heard from her for a long time. The last time I saw her was at her mother’s funeral sev­eral years ago, when we ex­changed ad­dresses. I later wrote to her, but never re­ceived an an­swer. As far as I know, she, Ver­non Yea­ger of Dal­las, my brother James My­ers of Spring­dale, and Billy Dee Os­born, and I are the only sur­vivors left. Carl wrote some de­tails of the storm that I had never heard, adding to the list of “mir­a­cles,” de­spite the sad fact of three deaths.

Five ladies met in the li­brary Mon­day for the recipe ex­change. Two recipes, “Twinkie Cake” and “Very Good Salad” were shared and dis­cussed. Dorothy served some cin­na­mon pin­wheels that were re­ally en­joyed. She is a much tal­ented and shar­ing cook. As usual there were some “tips,” and some shar­ing of var­i­ous mis­takes made at times, mak­ing it a good learn­ing ses­sion. The next meet­ing is to be Mon­day, April 9, at 1 p.m.

It takes some get­ting used to this time change. One cou­ple found a lit­tle hu­mor in it (as I’m sure many oth­ers did). He asked her Mon­day morn­ing why she was get­ting up so early. She said “it’s 7 time to get up.” He said, “It’s still dark, it can’t be.” So she said, “Look at the time on your phone.” Those things even au­to­mat­i­cally re­set the time. (I still de­pend on the cal­en­dar to “re­mem­ber” what day it is.)

Happy birth­day to Seth Latta, Hud­son Cheatham, Mary New­berry, Mary Lau­ren Bradley, Carol Meyer, Elmer Wil­liams, Richard Wat­son, Sam King, Paul Brake­bill, Les­ley Pinker­ton, Wes­ley Pinker­ton, Jack Bat­son.

Happy an­niver­sary to Don­ald and Denise Mounce.

Happy years, all!
