Marthetta Blakeley is still improving every day, but really feels the effects of being housebound when she wants to be running free through the green pastures and planting a garden in God's warm earth. She is so thankful for her wonderful caregivers, neighbors, friends and family for all the help, love and support. She is seeking someone with a brush hog to knock down her weeds and someone that could do fencing. If you can, or know of someone please either give me a call at 739-5756 or email Marthetta at Being in the hospital for so long, she lost her spot with her regular helper and is urgently seeking someone to help Out.

Sunday, she made another trip to Weiser and got to visit with cousin Larry Nygaard of Orofino and some other friends.

Ron and Janet Meyer enjoyed an impromptu visit from sister Leigh Ann and her husband, Kaz, over the weekend. Janet and Leigh Ann mapped out some plans for future yard saling, making sure they had some strategies in place that they arrive back home with more than a hog trough and a unicycle with a flat tire!

Roy and I have grand-kids Anika and J.R. visiting from Nevada for six weeks. J.R. was worried that Grandma couldn't come up with something fun, so Grandma went deer hunting the first night, the only bad thing was I used my car instead of a gun! Now, J.R. thinks Grandma is just awesome at coming up with fun things to do, and he can't wait to see what else I might do. Yikes!
