maternal grandmother by her
maternal grandfather as an
engagement present. Her shoe

this day. She carried a deep

Klondike News
_By John & Elizabeth Hopkins_
The Church at Klondike
held an ice cream social
and movie night on Sunday
evening. Cathy Bryan made
homemade strawberry ice
cream using a prize-winning
recipe from the Dairy Fest in
Sulphur Springs. (And, in my
opinion, the prize was well
deserved.) In addition there
was fresh peach cobbler made
with homegrown peaches
(yum) and chocolate cake.
After feasting on those things,
we moved on to the movie.
The choice for the evening
was “Loves Long Journey”
from the “Love Comes Softly”
series of books by Janette
Oke. All in all, everyone who
attended had a good time.
Nelma Dodd was eagerly
awaiting the weather changes
predicted for this week.
She loves cold weather.
How about you? Do you
like cold weather or warm
weather? I prefer something
in between personally.
Jimmy and Patricia
Blundell visited with all three
of their children this weekend.
On Sunday Patricia was in
Greenville visiting with her
friend Sue Kennemer. Larry
from visited Jimmy down
the road. While there, Larry
helped Patricia with her hen
boxes. (Patricianowalsohas a
few guineas. They will make
good watch “dogs” later.)
Pearl Foster was grateful
for the rains we had this
week. She said they got
about 2 1/2 inches of needed
rain. On Monday last week,
George and Pearl hosted a
Labor Day family gathering.
Wayne, Laura, Chris, Thressa
and Jaden were there along
with Gene, Cindy and Daniel.
Jaden is one of the new great-
grandchildren the F o sters have

now weighs about 9 pounds.
Martha Clark has had
two birthday parties recently.
Granddaughter Kayla had a
party on Saturday to celebrate
her upcoming 7th birthday.
Grandson Houston celebrated
his birthday August 30th.
Last week, Mable Wheat’s
son Hershal and daughter-in-
law Bennie picked her up and
took her to Sulphur Springs for
lunch. Then everyone went on
to Pittsburg to visit with Jerrell
and Alice. After that, they
went on to Cooksville to visit
with Mable’s sister Margaret
Ellis and her husband before
returning to Cooper. Mable
said she had a great day.
