Jarbalo Jottings

March 3, 2010

A message from Bid Sheppard: It has meant so much to be remembered by friends, neighbors and family with calls, cards and visits. At 98, one needs all the help one can get. I love you, Bid.

Daisy Shivers from Allen, Texas visited Bid Sheppard Friday. That day, Kathy Rapak, of Solomon, and Karen Sheppard, of Topeka, took Bid to Pullman Place in Leavenworth to celebrate Bid’s birthday.

The Jaunty Jarbalonians Red Hat group met for lunch at Ten Penny Restaurant Saturday, Feb. 20. Those attending were Lynn Paul, Jane Turner, Betty Clark and Thamar Barnett.

The annual pancake supper at Jarbalo United Methodist Church will be Friday, March 12 from 5-7 p.m.

The Fall Creek Cemetery Association’s annual meeting is Saturday, March 13 at 2 p.m. at the Alexandria Township Fire Station in Springdale.

Tim and Kelly Kouns were guests of David and Jane Turner Saturday evening.

Family members stopping by to see Thamar Barnett Sunday afternoon were Eric Barnett, Steve and Gail Fitzwater, Jane Turner and Kathy Stimac.

After about three months of snow, I could not resist the urge to have “snow fun” last week like I did as a kid. I got out my snow boots and dressed warmly. Then with the admonition from several of my children (“Mom, don’t go out on the snow and ice”) ringing in my ears I went out. I tramped two circles in the snow and made the cross paths and center free space for the game of Fox and Geese. I also made a small snowman due to the fact that the snow did not pack very well that day. I pushed a little snow around with a shovel and threw a few snowballs.

I have come to the conclusion that even if I have a heart attack or break a bone by falling, I will be having fun and if I’m lying on snow, I will make one last attempt to make a snow angel while I am down. She’s 83?
