Fort Towson Ramblings – May 10, 2019

Are you ready for those long summer days without a cloud in the sky. All I can say is that you had really be careful where you drive off-road these days or you might bury your vehicle up to the axles. And more rain on the way. But thank God our spay/neuter clinic Saturday was dry and warm. I had scheduled around 32 animals, but only 26 showed up. I don’t want to be mean, but if you say you are coming but don’t show up without calling to let me know, you probably won’t be on the next list. Because you knocked someone else from coming. And some people are desperately in need of getting their animals sterilized. The next clinic is June 1. I already have 20 on that list, so if you need our services give me a call at 873-2771. Mark and Jimmy finally came picked up the mules I have had for 8 months. I will miss seeing them in the pasture, but they have gone to a better home where they will be trained and useful. Mark was so good at catching them. He just talked to them with a bit of feed until they came up to him. And some “dirty rat” dropped me off another cat. She has recently weaned some kittens. She was so hungry. I hope she keeps coming back so I get her spayed and find her a good home. The May Menu for the Nutrition Site calls for Sloppy Joes on May 14. On the 21st is Ruth’s version of Chicken fried steak. It is a thick ground beef patty that has been battered then cooked. It comes with potatoes and gravy. On the 28th it will be spaghetti with salad and garlic bread. You residents of the Swink School District, don’t forget to get out and vote on May 14 to save your school. You have a wonderful school. Don’t lose it like Sawyer and Grant. I taught so many kids from Swink and they were all outstanding students. It is only a few weeks until HomeComing. You need to be making plans now to be there. Don’t let any negative events from the past keep you away. Thursday June 6, Ms. Edwards is having the Princess/ Queen Contest so it will not interfere with the Friday night events. Friday June 7 starts out with the Pancake Breakfast at City Hall. Nearly everyone comes for that. I hope to be there to greet you at the door. Barbara said a few more of us need to donate some more money to help pay for the trophies given for special events. Let’s make this a great time for all. They plan to honor two women who have been inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. Two ladies from our school. The parade gets underway at 10 a.m. Saturday morning. Get there early for a good spot to watch. Ronnie Miller had a birthday on May 1. Then Trapp will celebrate on May 8, and Levi Hudson on the 9th. Janice Byrd on the 16th and Jaycee Edwards on the 9th.
