Zanoni news: Nov. 1, 2017

We are still dry. If it rains a little, the wind comes up and dries it up fast. Sunday morning it looked like a snow on the ground, but it was just the heavy frost. When the sun came out, it got real foggy.

The wildlife have been around, including deer and turkeys. Also, the meadowlarks have been in the yard since Sunday. When I was in the kitchen one evening I looked out and saw two gobblers picking around in the backyard.

I’m sure the deer are hunting acorns just like the old cows do.

Wally helped Paul do some repair work on the old red feed truck. 

Paul has been working on the water system at the Luna place. Aaron Morrison will be bringing his kids to hunt next weekend.

Allen Hambelton had borrowed the dozer trailer, and when he brought it home he helped Paul put two new tires on.

Dohna Mahan’s daughter, Phyllis, and her granddaughter visited Dohna and Jerald a few days last week. On their way home they stopped in Springfield to see Phyllis’s brother, Tommy. 

I talked with Vernon Coy in town one day last  week.  He was going to see his dad, Doin Coy, who lives in Arizona. Doin is one of mine and Leroy’s first cousins, and I think he is 97 years old.

Dwain and Betty Morrison had some of their kids with them over the weekend.

We visited with Stan and Janet Taber at Cookie’s after church Sunday.

The November Food Pantry will be on Wednesday, Nov. 8, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Wednesday, Nov. 15, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Everyone have a good week and get ready to roll your clocks back one hour on Nov. 5.
