Today is Cow Appreciation Day! I think that everyone should appreciate our cows every day of the year! They give us milk! People should drink more milk – it is good for you – have you seen the commercials? !
So today, I am going to appreciate my favorite cows! I am going to eat at Chic-fil-a and admire and show my appreciation to the cows! They are the greatest cows around!
Today is Video Games Day!
I started playing video games in the late 1970s. I began with the Atari 5200 and PacMan. I was the family PacMan champion! I went through the Nintendo, and then the playstation phases and now I have a WII. I will celebrate today by playing WII Fit Plus! How about you?
Today is National Fried Chicken Day! I am going to celebrate today by eating fried chicken! How are you celebrating this important day?
Today is the 4th of July! It is the day that we celebrate our national Independence!
This is the day that many of us spend going to parades, backyard bar-b-ques, fireworks shows, swimming, and otherwise relaxing and enjoying fun times with friends and family. These are all good things and I am planning on some of them myself, but today of all days we should all take a few moments to remember and appreciate the sacrifices of all our armed forces and their families who provide the freedom we are celebrating today! Thank you to all veterans and their families!!
Happy 4th of July!!
My Great Grandmother Venna Stansell Thompson was a formidable woman. She did things her way and expected everyone to follow along. However, she was also a very kind, Christian woman who wanted to believe the best of everyone but wouldn’t be taken for anyone’s fool.
Mrs.Venna Thompson, 84, of Springdale, died Feb. 28, 1987, at Meadowview Lodge in Huntsville. She was born June 10, 1902, at Whorton Creek, Ark.; the daughter of Oliver and Susan King Stansell. She was a member of the Glad Tidings Assembly of God Church and the widow of Vernon Thompson, who preceded her in death on Oct. 16, 1954.
Survivors include two sons, Crawford Thompson and John Thompson, both of Springdale; six daughters, Mrs. Estelle Stamps and Mrs. Floye Butler, both of Springdale, Mrs. Goldie Nobles of Howe, Okla., Mrs. Ruth Griggs and Mrs. Dixie Elzey, both of Huntsville, and Mrs. Rose Dolph of Tulsa, Okla.; several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
