East side, west side: Lots to do

Happy birthday on Thursday to my daughter, Sharon DuBose, who lives in Gordonville, Texas. That’s up by Lake Texhoma. I won’t tell you how old she is but she’s not as old as I!

Saturday, Feb. 25, 6 p.m., Arrowhead Baptist Church will hold their annual Dessert Auction and Soup Cook-off.  Who’ll win the cook-off?  Whose dessert brings the most bids?  A chocolate pie took the honors last year.  Pete Poore was the “lucky” pie-taker home.  Someone is spreading rumors that Pete won’t be there this year… It won’t be the same if Pete and Rita aren’t there.  And what will himself do if he can’t compete with Pete? Anyway, everyone is welcome to come eat some soups and desserts and stay for the auction… It’s the best part.

There’s a book signing being held at Shenkie’s Cafe in Henrietta on Thursday the 23rd.  Marjorie Hodgson Parker has written her first book for adults entitled, “Shaken to the Core”.  It is a book drawn from the experiences of 80 or so people who found the strength to endure difficult times through their faith in God.  LA’s Sherry Coombs is reading the book now and recommends it everyone and especially to those who going through health related problems.

While you’re there, grab a bite to eat. Shenkie always has a good and wholesome sandwich or soup or dessert for the hungry or not so hungry.

Speaking of foods, go by Bridge Street Grill for lunch or dinner. The food’s good… Chicken fried steak, an ever popular meal; BLT, the sandwich that never tastes bad. After 5 p.m. you can have a steak or some pasta or whatever turns on your taste buds and is on the menu!

There’s Roma’s for pizza and calzone and/or other Italian related foods. Calzone’s our favorite.

Subway’s always rich with sandwich and salad foods. The macadamia nut cookies are not to be sneezed at!

Across the street is Sonic with any number of edible goodies. Himself especially likes the breakfast burrito and I’mm kinda’ partial to that myself.

And don’t ever, ever forget Dairy Queen, the matriarch of Henrietta’s eating establishments.  Blizzards and fudge sundaes top our list of goodies.

Down by U.S. Hwy. 287 is Leal’s, a good place for good Mexican food, good service and friendly smiles.  If you’re feeling blue, take yourself to Leal’s for some cheering up and some filling up.

Elections are coming up but we’re not sure when… We know where and what and who but when remains a good question… Hope we hear in time to go.

The Bean and Cornbread feed at Arrowhead Ranch Estates was very good. The beans, prepared by Mona V., were very tasty.  The cornbread met all CB eaters specifications… Whoever made the CB did a good job!

I think they could do this again next year. It’s ARE’s annual VFD fundraiser. I hope they had a good turnout.


The LAVFD-Aux. fundraiser is set for Saturday, April 28, at Arrowhead Baptist Church. It’s their annual Spaghetti Supper. That’s always fun!

Prostate Cancer Prevention Program

If I didn’t mention this before, I’d better do so now.  Sherri Halsell and her bunch are hostessing an early morning breakfast, 7:30 a.m.-8:30 a.m., at St. Mary’s Parish Hall.  The purpose of the event is to inform men and women of the importance of prostate screening and other forms of early detection of cancer.  “How to access financial resources and area services” is information that will be made available to us.  You’ll need to make reservations, call 538-5042 to make yours.

Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies have gone on sale… Be sure to buy yours.  They’re $3.50 a box and the best tasting ones are the ones you buy.

Peace, love and laughter
