If you do not watch the show, you cannot come. June Williams said her sister didn’t get invited last year because she didn’t watch it so she binge-watched so she could come this year!
On the other hand, Williams’ brother-n-law said “it takes some sick individuals to come with that.” But, we are talking about crazy fans of The Walking Dead television series!
So for the Fall and mid-season premieres, the group of Winona area super-fans get together to eat and watch the shows. And TWD-themed menu is so much fun, and packed with lots of ideas for a spooky-inspired dinner just in time for Halloween. Continue reading
She has always enjoyed listening to stories of local history. And those stories and those buildings lead to her fascination with architecture.
Belinda Stewart of Belinda Stewart Architecture will share her love of old buildings and historic places in Webster County at the October JOY Club potluck luncheon set for 11:30 a.m. Oct. 31 in the First Baptist Church of Eupora fellowship hall. After a few brief announcements, lunch will be served. There will be a brief devotion around noon, and then Stewart will share a powerpoint presentation about some of her favorite historic homes in the area.
Stewart said she is not sure which is the oldest building in Webster County, but there are several very early log cabins that are mostly in ruin, but still around. The oldest building still in use is the Shady Grove Presbyterian Church, originally built around 1820, with the current building constructed in the 1840’s or 1850’s. Continue reading
It is a GORGEOUS #Fall day and it occurred to me that after working at First Baptist Church of Eupora for a little over five years, that I have never enjoyed a picnic outside. Since I can’t drive myself and the shoulder for a few weeks, I am stranded here at lunch. Pepper bought a sandwich from Subway this morning, and for the first time in five years, I sat on the steps and enjoyed the sounds and sights and sun and wind of this Fall day. I was a little frazzled from too much activity this morning (it happens sometimes) so initially, I thought I would unplug, but I love taking a few photos and I couldn’t resist a few snaps of the roses and the architecture, the water falling and the wind whipping the flags. I hope y’all enjoy the short videos and photos of the sounds and sights of lunch today. I know it is silly, but I LOVED it! I hope you enjoy! Continue reading
It is getting a little chilly outside and what could be better than a piping hot cup of soup and a cornbread muffin? YUM! Just thinking about it makes me happy.
Now Bob Graves thinks it is Beef Stew time, “Soup is for lightweights,” he said, all in good humor, I am sure, because the rest of us “lightweights” love a steaming, hearty bowl of soup! But I will indulge one of my favorite Facebook friends for a minute. Continue reading
