Hello readers, are you all set for the colder air? Doug has our big gas heater going strong and it's really toasty here in my kitchen as I sit and think about what has happened here in Paint Lick. We have this old gas heater, but it sure has been a reliable source in keeping warm here by the creek. In the 25 years of living in our home, I believe the heater has only been updated twice. And it's always good to have a family member who knows his stuff about the workings of old heaters. Thank you Randy Lee Ray for being there. So, as I said, the colder air is due in here this week and I'm hoping it will not last too long, but more important, if the sun is out, I can handle anything on a cold day even with some probable snow flurries.
Folks, the good workers at Copperhead Environmentalist are still collecting the plastic bottle caps for the making of benches in our community. I was wrong in last week's news column, so keep collecting those caps and drop them by the building across the street from our post office. Copperhead is there five days, 8:30 a.m. till 5 p.m. and the Friends of Paint Lick is around three days. Call us at 925-2417 or call me here at home.
I had a really good lunch with sister Linda last Wednesday -- she was home alone and I was off work so Captain D's Fish was a real treat. Out of seven girls from our family, three daughters are still around and we make every effort to stay in touch. On Fridays, I like to go see my granddaughter Amanda and great-grandson Asher in Lancaster, so my week is full. That little boy is so precious and you know, it's wonderful being a "grandma." I do tend to talk too much about things other than Paint Lick but not too much is happening here in the area. I am looking forward to the Turkey Supper at Fairview Christian Church this coming Saturday and donations are much appreciated. They will begin serving from 5-7 p.m.
Then, the big event is our annual Thanksgiving Services for this year at Wallaceton Baptist Church located at the corner of U.S. Hwy. 21 and Guynn Rd. Everyone is welcome to come share in this most joyous occasion where "GIVING" of oneself is the true meaning to the heart. Why not come and listen to our services and you can go home with new meaning of fellowship. Our Thanksgiving services will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 7 p.m.
Stay warm and dry this week in the cold air.
May God bless.
