Garrell and Louella Singleton, of Frametown. celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on April 8. 2009. at home with family, friends, and members of the Hospice Care Corporation staff who help take care of Louella. Garrell and Louella. ages 92 and 95. respectively, began dating after Garrell showed an interest in Louella when delivering furniture to her fam- ily. At first, she wouldn't talk with him because she was busy playing softball, but gave word for him to call the following day. He did. and they' ve been inseparable ever since. The couple was married 70 years ago in a private ceremony that they managed to keep a secret for several weeks. Louella related to guests about the dinner Garrell bought for her to celebrate their, marriage, "He bought us hot dogs that cost about ten cents each. You can't get a hot dog today for that price." During their visit, the Hospice Care staff was told stories of how Louella went from city girl to a county farm wife. Garrell told about his work experiences and how he converted Louella to a farmhand and gardener. The two still laugh about experiences on the farm. Couples young and old can learn many lessons from Garrell and Louella. like enjoying every minute together and remembering to laugh with one another. The couple have seen their share of good times and bad. but they have always remained by each other's side. All guests were honored that the Singletons have allowed them to be- come a part of their lives and their special story. Gilmer County Public Library or the GSC Robert Kidd Library for some fine, yet lively, reading for pleasure or profit ideas. Beautiful weather, warm days, cool nights, some rain: that is spring. If April showers bring May flow- ers. what does April snow bring? A late spring, or complaints: everyone looks at it in a different way. Paul and Rul~h Hoak and daughter, .Dian. took a trip to Duck. NC. R was their first time there, and they enjoyed it very much. They did a lot of sight- seeing. There was some ram. but it was mostly at night and didn't inter- fere with their days. Jay finally got his garden plowed and worked up: and with the help of Jimmy and Mike. he also got the po- tatoes in. Now he is more satisfied he can get more things planted. He can't mow. though, because both his lawnmowers are broken. Let us remember those in our com- munity, and other communities, who need our prayers. Prayer reaches a long way.

TOWING PPG Products from Automotive Color Technology FLORICE WINEMILLER MEADOWS AND HER GRANDDAUGHTER, ZONIE See Jesse Run; Watch This week. my picture has connec- tions to my April 9 column about the Jesse Ferman and Martha Helean Norman family. In the early 1900s. the Moore and Winemiller fanlilies all lived on Pop- lar Lick. Florice Winemiller Mead- ows married my great-uncle. Oat Meadows. According to my Gilmcr County marriage book. Otta "Oat. 21. and Florice Winemiller. 19. were married November 11.19 t I. When I knew Oat and Florice. they lived on Little Crooked Fork of Crooked Fork In the picture, great-aunt Ruby Meadows said Florice and her grand- daughter. Zonie. are making black- berry butter. Blackberry butter would be more economical than jam. be- cause it takes less sugar to make butter than jam. I wondered how many buck- ets o fblackberries Aunt Florice had in her copper kettle of blackberry butter she was stirring off, Aunt Florice's apron has some very fancy handwork on it. I am sure the picture was taken by a professional photographer. Florice grew up on Poplar Lick. and the 19 t 0 census misspelled her name. The census states: Milford Winemiller. 51: Stein A. 56: Isa. 30: Fred. 20: Forest (Florice), 18: and Stadie. 16. Two marriages connected the Moore and Winemiller families: Charles Lewis Moore married Nettle Winemiller. and Rhoda Fay Moore married Pearly Winemiller. I got some interesting calls about my April 9 column about Martha Helean Norman's family. I had trouble reading my notes, but I think Pearl Mace. from Frametown. called. Her husband has family connections to the Pearly and Rhoda Fay Winemiller family We also discussed Everett Mick. who had a general store along the railroad tracks in Gassaway. He had connections in the Winemiller family, but we both remembered him best because he had a live monkey in his backyard. Jeff Smith has been busy putting a used guardrail floor and side guards onhis bridge; it surely looks nice. The slip below Billy Turner's house is still falling into the road: Half of Baseball the cement-block foundation under the house has slipped away. The house must have been constructed well. or it would have fallen clown. Son Tim bought 1 6 heifer calves at the Weston Stock Sale last week. to keep my pasture down this sumlner. Son-in-law Todd. daughter Regina. and son Tim wormed the calves and put identifying tags in their ears. This was Quilt Guild week. and It was also school spring break week. Some guild members who are teach- ers were able to attend the meeting. Our leader. Jane Smith. and husband. RUss Stalnaker. stopped in Gilmer County on their way home to Ohio. so Jane could attend the meeting. Russ and Jane had spent the winter m Florida. and we had lots of interest- ing show and tell. l saw that Jesse Darby is on the WVU baseball team. Way to go, Jesse! i babysat Jesse a few times before he started school He was sure he could outrun me when I told him not to do something (and I knew he could!); thankfully, he didn't try. I I II J oAnn Woodyar d 462-7093 Welcome, New Neighbors ! Our 4-H Community Easter Egg Hunt turned out well. Several chil- dren attended, and they all went home with goodies. We had Katrina. John and two girls from Maryland here for Easter. Also. Rebecca. Daniel. Mikala and Caleb were here. and all four grandchildren had a good time playing together. The 4-H Basket Bingo at the Senior Center went well. Several attended. and it was good to see Mary Oldaker there Barb Godfrey, of Ripley, spent the weekend visiting Shirley and Howard. She also came to see me Saturday evening, and she spent some time with her brother. Mike Godfrey, at Copen. He had surgery on Thursday. We are having some pretty weather now. I hope to get my garden planted soon. though I do have lettuce and onions up. We need to remember Marg Hess in our prayers: she has been in the hospital Wayne. Mikala and I went to the Gospel Meeting at Shock last Thurs- day evening and heard a good mes- sage from James Farley. Our Ladies' Club welcomed Susie and Ray Larch to the community; they moved here fromColorado. To Clean Rusty Metals Clean with kerosene, which is bet- ter than oxalic acid for brass or copperware. Kerosene is harmless. while oxalic acid is poisonous. Burn Care In case of a burn. cover the place with bicarbonate of soda and bind over it a soft cloth: this will relieve by keeping the air from the burned place. As soda is in all kitchens, this is a convenient remedy.
