PAGE A-2—HOLDENVILLE TRIBUNE—NOVEMBER 30 , 2011

December has arrived and many folks have already started their Christmas shopping. Several years ago we told our children not to buy us anything for Christmas because we have nowhere to put any additional items. In fact, Dayna and I are thinking about starting a new tradition. Each Christmas when our children leave our house we are going to insist they pick some item and take it with them. We have decided that less is better. When we were first married we had a small apartment and plenty of room for everything we owned and needed. I am now beginning to wonder if that might be just what we need in our “golden” years. Ellen Kozak recently wrote that maybe we should “Forget Martha Stewart and Try Mother Hubbard.” After years of merely dabbling in disposal of my accumulated stuff, I think I might now be a candidate for “extreme downsizing.” If I can be ruthless enough. The idea has taken hold in recent months. I have been disposing of boxes filled with junk (or, if you prefer, treasured family possessions that have been passed to me though the years) and helping the family of a friend do the same. In the process, my decorating fantasies are shifting from Martha Stewart-style rooms filled with charming doodads to living with (and taking care of) not just fewer and fewer things—but virtually none at all. Interestingly, this same dream seems to belong to more and more of my friends. While some baby boomers are acquiring second homes, others seem to have resurrected a hippie fantasy of living with the bare minimum of possessions and going where the spirit moves us. Fewer and Fewer Needs This is not mere decluttering. Extreme downsizing is, like old age, not for sissies. You start by realizing that if you lived in an apartment, you wouldn’t need all that lawn and garden equipment. Then it occurs to you that in a warm climate you wouldn’t need seasonal wardrobes. Next, you become aware that you never actually look at the pictures on the walls or the collectibles set out so artfully on the tops of the cupboards. You have proof of this when you realize that the collectibles, which require climbing a ladder to be viewed properly, have grown furry edges. How could you not have noticed? When I got out of law school, I had three goals for my incipient life as a real person: a real bed that didn’t fold out, framed pictures on the wall (instead of posters stuck up with masking tape that doesn’t leave a mark and cost you part of your security deposit), and matching dishes and flatware. I have all of those things. But since I developed back problems, I find I am more comfortable sleeping on the couch. I don’t entertain at home except to barbecue in summer; for those rare occasions, paper plates would suffice. As for the pictures on the walls, I think I would prefer more windows and less wall space anyway. Perhaps this fantasy of having nothing (and thus not needing to dust anything) is based on my dream of moving to Hawaii. Not only is housing there expensive, but getting your stuff there would be even more so. (You can’t just throw it all into your car and drive.) When my friends Jan and John built a home on Grand Cayman, they chartered a small plane and stuffed it with all of the things they couldn’t trust to shippers, including their computer, their dog and their cat. Needless to say, it cost them a mint to move. Less stuff means less to ship (and less space needed there). The electronic age is aiding and abetting those of us who dream of a bare-bones existence. As someone who comes from a family of readers and writers, I have reluctantly come to realize that those wall-to-wall bookshelves can be replaced by a single hand-held electronic reader. Research can be done so quickly and efficiently online that you no longer even need a dictionary—and I don’t know anyone who still uses a telephone book. There are different ways to embark on this. My friend Barbara had a dumpster placed on her driveway and filled it—twice. My friend Sharon rented a storefront and has run an antiques and collectibles shop without having to purchase any inventory. (It all came out of her house.) Her friend Carol, left to downsize after the death of her husband, purchased a condo and carefully moved over all of the things that she couldn’t part with. Then she called an auction house and let them cart off everything that was left. Memories of the days when I could throw my dog and my swimsuit into my Volkswagen Beetle and take off are tempting me again. If years of exposure to House & Garden (later HG) led me to believe that I needed a wallpaper-lined linen closet with piles of matching towels in neat stacks, the call of the open road is stronger than that. So I have been sorting, cleaning and disposing—and suddenly understanding where my mother was coming from when she started to do the same. (“Here,” she would say, handing me a bag of miscellany. “This is yours.” Most of the time only some of it was; the rest belonged to my siblings but found its way into my house via those bags.) There comes a day when things you used to treasure seem less important than the time it takes to look after them. No Quarter Not that any of this is easy. I know I talk a good game. But the key, I’m discovering, is ruthlessness. For instance, I found myself backpedaling recently over what to do with a present that my late Aunt Anna had given me. She wanted me to have something of hers to remember her by, she said. I chose a triangular china plate that I now keep next to my stove, where it holds my salt and pepper grinders and a small bottle of olive oil. Aunt Anna was right: Every time I reach for the salt or pepper, I think of her. But lately I’ve also been picturing a tiny condo I once rented in Hawaii. There was no counter space in that condo for my triangular plate. So the idea got into my head that if I couldn’t find

a place for that plate, I couldn’t go. My friend Sharon snickered at this roadblock. “You’ve got to have room for a single china plate,” she told me. “Stick it in the cupboard.” But that defeats the purpose! To do extreme downsizing, you’ve got to emulate Mother Hubbard. Your cupboards have to be virtually bare. Lose sight of that, and in no time flat your shelves will be groaning again—with objects you can’t bear to give up, and others you can’t remember why you kept. So…give me some time. I’m determined to get extreme. If I manage it, I hope Aunt Anna will forgive me. — Wall Street Journal —CC— After reading the above article, I actually started removing some books, plaques, etc. from our living room. I filled up one large box and no one has noticed that anything is gone. I intend to go room by room, saving the basement for last. Whatever we get rid of now will save our kids the trouble later on. A few others weighed in on the article . . . My husband handed me your timely essay this morning. Mind you, he is a very kind and forgiving dear who usually says “nice” when I bring in yet another “treasure” from a sale that I never should have gone to. But…I am a minute away from my accumulations being at near capacity in our smallish house. So thank you. My days of Martha Stewart’s matchy-matchy everything are over. I pray for deliverance from stuff. —Kristian Ziebron My wife and I have a cozy condo and learned a long time ago that less is more. Large homes are a bit of an American addiction; when we travel, especially to Japan, we see that a mountain of space does not necessarily make a person happy in one’s home. A smaller home has less to clean, less to repair and is much cheaper overall. Enjoy! —Luke F. Zimmerman We have been married 53 years, and I have been de-junking for many years. No one wants my “stuff.” My motto now is that if it needs dusting, get rid of it (or put it under glass), and anything anyone gives me better be consumable. I had a large collection of salt and pepper shakers, Royal Doulton figures, Wedgewood Jasperware, souvenir spoons and stuff from my travels all over the world. It is all gone. Only the necessities now. George Carlin once said in one of his routines that the only reason we have a house is to put our “stuff” somewhere. —Jo Ann Manigold I really like what Jo Ann said, “if you are going to give me a gift, make it consumable!” —CC— Many of us “old timers” remember when we got one gift on Christmas Eve and Santa would bring us one Christmas morning. Our grandchildren have so many toys it is difficult to walk thru their rooms. I also remember when getting candy, fruit and nuts at Christmas was a real treat because we seldom got any during the year. We may have not had as much stuff growing up as today’s kids, but somehow I believe we enjoyed Christmas much more in the “good old days.” —CC— I remember when our children were young we were careful not to spend more on one than we did with the other two. The late Erma Bombeck was well aware of the problems that could bring . . . “I tallied up the price of the gifts to my children the other day and realized one is $2 short of the amount I spent on the other two. There are those who will say: “Christmas isn’t about money. It’s about little tokens of love and giving and sharing.” Continued on Page A-5

Dayna’s Desk

Last week we knew we would have a Tuesday deadline on our Thanksgiving edition, but on Monday we found out that our printers had moved it to Monday evening. Well, we were in such a rush that I didn’t get in a couple of Thanksgiving items that I really wanted to share with our readers. Our motto is, “It’s never too late!” The first is a poem that our good friend Naomi Tomlinson wrote. We always enjoy her poems. She is a very gifted writer and we appreciate her sharing with us. SHALL WE GIVE THANKS? By Naomi Tomlinson Thanksgiving Day is drawing near, The time to celebrate, And offer thanks unto our God On this important date. What are the things we’re thankful for? Just let us name a few: The gifts our Father gives to us And with our hearts imbue. Should we take time to thank Him for Shelter over our heads, The groceries upon our shelves And comfort of our beds? For cars, for money and for things Relating to one’s wealth, Or should we be most grateful for Our loved ones and for health? For cool days, white clouds, soft rains? (With these we’re surely blessed). For deepened darkness, silent nights When we can take our rest? An endless list continues on As we all contemplate Days ahead when family comes, Some early and some late. The tables laden with good food To whet the appetite. The kinfolk gather all around, The children’s eyes so bright. So let us all hold hands and pray, And, as each bows his head, Thank God for blessings oh so great, And for our daily bread. —0— The next item was sent to us by our good friend Derlyn Pope. I thought it was perfect and we need to remember this year-around. HOW TO OBSERVE THANKSGIVING Count your blessings instead of your crosses; Count your gains instead of your losses. Count your joys instead of your woes; Count your friends instead of your foes. Count your smiles instead of your tears; Count your courage instead of your fears. Count your full years instead of your lean; Count your kind deeds instead of your mean. Count your health instead of your wealth; Count on God instead of yourself. —DD— I truly hope each one of you had a good Thanksgiving. We certainly did. We had close to 30 people at our gathering and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. All of Laura’s family and all of our family (the Leewrights and Robinsons) were present. The food was delicious and the fellowship was even better. Doyle and Mary Evelyn Wilson had over 40 people at their home, including a set of triplets (two girls and a boy) who are 9 months old and their great-grandson Chase Eliott , who is just a few months old. She said they had a wonderful time and were so happy that most of their family was able to come. Geneva Pierce went to her daughter and son-in-law, Barbara and Jerry Moeller’s in Stillwater. I haven’t talked with her since she returned, but I’m sure had a wonderful time. David and Jumper Ingram went to their son and daughter-inlaw’s, Russell and Tracey Ingram’s in Yukon. All of their children and grandchildren were there and they had a great time together. Phillip Wood said he went to his sister’s home in Meeker, while his daughter and her husband, David and Ladonna Merkel stayed in Holdenville and had dinner with some of David’s family. Phillips grandson, Erich went to North Carolina to spend Thanksgiving with his girlfriend’s family. Pete and Sarah Trammell had all of their children and grandchildren at their home. Sarah said they had a wonderful time together and that she did A LOT of cooking! I know she is a good cook, so I’m sure the family enjoyed it!! I love to cook, but don’t have a lot of time for it. This year I cooked a 25 pound turkey. I have never seen such a big bird in all my life. I almost didn’t have a pan big enough to cook it in – but I ended up putting it in a foil roasting pan with a cookie sheet under it for support. It took almost six hours to cook! Thankfully, it turned out really good – tender a juicy. I got off light this year only having to bring the turkey and dressing. —DD— I had the pleasure of attending the Holdenville Creek Indian Community Thanksgiving dinner and had a great time. Everyone is always so kind to me when I visit them and their food is absolutely the best! I want to thank the cooks (Jeanette Fixico, Nancy Long, Penny Dyer and Frances Long) for sending a plate home for Bill and Jade and I want to thank Jensie Jimboy, Mary Whitetree, Winey West and Lucinda Cook for asking me to sit with them. I had a great time visiting with them. Jensie’s mom, Babe organized a ball team a few years ago to play against a Moss team and their team won! Jensie said they still had it after all these years! I know they are good ball players, because Gert used to brag on them all the time. —DD— Our hearts go out to those who lost loved ones during this past week. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Freda Peerson.

Words are hard to find during a time like this, but just know that you will be remembered daily. Freda was a very special lady who was loved by all. There will be a huge void in Holdenville as she touched many lives. We are also thinking of the

family of Mabel Herring. Her service was held Saturday morning and I was honored to be asked to sing for the service. Gene Holliman officiated the service and did an excellent job. Mabel was a “one of a kind” and everyone that knew her loved

her. She will be greatly missed. —DD— A belated happy birthday to our dear friend Alice Olivo. She received a number of cards and calls and also a special treat by her good friends, Elene Continued on Page A-6

Continued from Page A-5 Thompson and Kathy Raddach, who took her out for a delicious lunch. —DD— A couple of weeks ago we ran the story about the Thunderbirds and their reunion held at the home of Barbara Walker. Barbara’s husband, the late Glenn Walker, was a member of that famous group. Barbara was a perfect hostess. The day of

the reception she also celebrated her birthday. The entire group sang “Happy Birthday� to her. She is a very special lady and everyone greatly appreciates all the effort she went to in making this reunion so memorable. —DD— I recently attended a reception in honor of Iva Horn, 1948 HHS graduate. She was presented the DIANA Award

by the ESA organization for her unselfish giving of herself to the community and others. I must say, Iva is very deserving of this prestigious award. She is a very lovely lady who is very active in the Holdenville Hospital Auxiliary, the Loaves and Fishes clothing ministry and the First Baptist Church. A large host of friends and family attended the reception. We are so happy

Happy Holidays

for Iva and congratulate her on receiving this high honor. She and her family are very special to us. —DD— I also attended a baby shower for Julie Becerra recently. She adopted a precious little girl named Sadie Elizabeth. She is absolutely beautiful and had a great time at the shower. Julie and Sadie were overwhelmed by the outpouring of love

Thank You To Holdenville Cheerleading Sqaud There is a lot of hard work involved in preparing the food boxes that the Holdenville Ministerial Alliance & Loaves and Fishes Ministry distribute each month from the First Baptist Church Activity Center, but it is so rewarding to be able to help those who have a need. What has been a real blessing is the help we have received from the youth in our community. For the past several months Boy Scout Troup 456 has been a tremendous help. This month the Holdenville High School Cheerleaders came and worked very hard, helping to get approximately 400 boxes pack in record time. Savannah Lantz, Hayli Frederick, Angel Smith, Angel Johnson, Breanna Griggs, Annahlisse Gunn, Tiffany Adkins, Taylor Adkins, Alyssa Swadley, Ashley Lacey, Megan Morgan, Emma Sherry, Dee Smith, Kim Frederick and Coach Sherry, thank you so much for all your help.

HOLDENVILLE TRIBUNE—NOVEMBER 30, 2011—PAGE B-3

from

Dayna’s Desk

Continued from Page A-6 year. With credit card numbers flying through cyberspace, make sure you take steps to protect your security if you plan to shop online this year, say personal financial planning experts at the Oklahoma Society of Certified Public Accountants (OSCPA). The following tips can keep an online Grinch from ruining your holiday cheer (and the rest of the year, too).

Verify the company and website. One of the most important first steps you can take is to make sure you’re actually making a purchase from a legitimate business. Independent websites like Epinions.com and Biz Rate will let you read what other consumers have to say about a business. The Better Business Bureau Online offers consumers a list of safe shopping sites. When in doubt, go with a reputable company name. Look for signs of security. When it’s time to input your payment information, look for an “s” after “http” in the website address, ensuring your data is encrypted as it is transmitted. Also look for a tiny closed padlock in the address bar or on the lower right corner of the window. As an added security measure, update your website browser. The most recent versions of website browsers are typically the most secure. Be skeptical. We’re all looking for a bargain, but approach a deal that seems too good to be true with caution. Submitting your information to an unknown company to purchase a new computer for $25 could be risky. Paying the higher price through a trusted vendor may be the difference between a secure purchase and a compromised credit card number. Keep it private. Avoid inputting your credit card number and personal information on public computers. Hackers prey on shared computers. Pay with plastic. Yes, financial planners often tell you not to run up your credit card bill, and that still holds, but using your credit card for online purchases offers you some protection. If there are any problems, you can work with your credit card company to file and resolve a dispute. Incidentally, many credit cards offer protection or insurance on purchases. In lieu of using plastic, many retailers will allow you to use a third-party payment service as PayPal, which guarantees your purchase. And ultimately, credit cards offer more security than debit cards. Print, save and stash. Don’t forget to keep records of your purchases. Print and save your receipts and email confirmations. You’ll need these if you encounter any problems. Safeguard your Password. It’s time to get a little more sophisticated with your choice of passwords; abcd123 isn’t going to cut it. Today’s hackers are smart and determined. Get creative and use a combination of letters and numbers. Some sites will even allow you to use special symbols, like dollar signs or ampersands. Verify the privacy policy. In short, make sure the vendor has one and that they outline how they’ll be protecting your information.

Be careful where you click. Go directly to a seller’s website versus clicking on a link you receive in an email or stumble across on another site. Clicking on unknown links can take you places you’d rather not go. Check it out. When your credit card statement arrives, go over it with a fine-tooth comb, making certain all of the purchases are yours. If you question a line item, call the credit card company immediately. Don’t forget to check a store’s online purchase policy as well, should you need to exchange or return an item. “There are a lot of great online deals this holiday season,” said OSCPA Executive Director Daryl Hill. “By taking a few simple precautions, you can shop wisely without jeopardizing your online security.” —DD— I had a good visit with my friend Wanda Hensley of Wewoka yesterday. I was sorry to hear that she had been so ill. She said that she has had bronchitis for almost a month now and has not been able to do anything at all. She said she has this twice a year, but this time it was worse than ever. She said that she had lain in bed for so long that she finally decided she was going to “will” herself to live. You know – some people will themselves to die, but she decided she was going to do the opposite. So, she said she sat up on the bed, grabbed the telephone and started calling people. She called the plumber, the repairman, the carpenter, the yardman, the housekeeper, the electrician and made a hair appointment! When she told her aunt who all she had called, her aunt asked her why she didn’t call the preacher. Wanda said well, I didn’t think about calling the preacher. Her aunt told her that she had her priorities out of order. I have never laughed so hard in all my life. This is a true story – she said she had four people there at one time working on things around her house! She said, “I knew I wasn’t able to do any of these things, so I might as well get it all lined out before Christmas!” —DD— The Church of the Nazarene will be having their annual “Chrismon” program this coming Sunday, December 4th. The children will have a short program before the adults and everything starts at 10:45. The church is located at 323 S. Oak. I talked with Rev. John and Wilma Berry today and the Shiloh Baptist Evangelist Temple COGIC will have their Christmas program on December 18th beginning at 11:00a.m. Their church is located at 7852 E. County Rd 134. They will have a dinner following the service and a gift exchange. The Barnard Memorial United Methodist Church will have a special Christmas Eve Service. The time has not been set, but I will let you know as soon as possible. If any other churches are having special services and would like to let everyone know, please call us at 405-3795184 and we will put it in the TRIBUNE. —DD— This is some more the late Mae Leach’s journal during the week of Thanksgiving 1975. I sure enjoyed this one. Hope you do, too!

SUNDAY NOVEMBER 23RD, 1975--In Sunday School we had a total of 221 present. 11 in our class. We had mailed news before S.S. Gave Donna a few tomatoes. Left Lamar album with Grace Sweet— came home, ate, rested, slept. I awoke with a headache. Ralph has a sore throat. He called Melvin; told him that we just can’t get out to choir practice at 5:00. Sorry that we can’t help with the cantata. Ralph retired early tonight and hopes to be rid of his cold by tomorrow. I wrote to Mrs. W.B. Wright tonight. James Marsh came by today. MONDAY NOVEMBER TH 24 , 1975—We have had hunters all day in and out. First, Rev. H.J. Forde from Seminole; Daryl Hamilton of Fort Worth; Howard Unsell and J.D. Leach of Holdenville. We had a card from Bob and Blanche Edwards today. Ruth Leach Peck called from Jesse. She and Peck will be here tomorrow afternoon. I slept a little nap this afternoon. Wrote up articles for Holdenville Daily—from Lamar Extension Homemaker’s club—also wrote check for $12.00 for our subscription renewal for one year. We are retiring early tonight. Ralph bought gas at Lamar. TUESDAY NOVEMBER 25TH, 1975—Barbara Dooley called early this morning asking us to eat Thanksgiving Dinner with her and her family. But we have promised to go to Bethany on that day. We mailed 2 news articles for Lamar Extension Homemakers and check for our subscription to Holdenville Daily News. Ralph went to Lamar for groceries this morning. Mrs. Lester Called. Ruth and Peck came at 12:30. We have had such a good afternoon and evening together. I called Ada Faye. I also called Lena tonight. Seventeen years ago tonight we spent our 1st night at Lamar having moved back to the same house that we left in 1947. Cold! So cold! Snow has been forecast for tonight. W E D N E S D A Y NOVEMBER 26TH, 1975—Up at the usual time this morning--Mr. Carl Shields came to see if he could help Ralph feed cattle. 2 or more inches of snow in the night; our 1st snow o this season is beautiful but cold! The sun came up and began to melt the snow. We all had coffee—later we had a wholesome breakfast. Did more visiting with Ruth and Peck. About eleven, they (R&P) left for Holdenville. We really have enjoyed having them. After lunch, I slept a nap—got up and did a washing and did some baking; cherry pie and baked beans. Most of the snow stayed on the ground. Ralph called Bro. Ford and also called Bob Kirkland at Yeager tonight. THURSDAYNOVEMBER TH 27 , 1975—“Thanksgiving Day”—What a wonderful Day! All of the Leach children and grandchildren as well as some great grandchildren spent the day at Edward and Leah’s home in Bethany. We had so much food. It was all so delicious and our fellowship was wonderful. Jesse and Lena took us with them. We really enjoyed the trip and the time while there. We left here at 8:00 a.m. and reached home again at 7:00p.m.. We Continued on Page B-5

Dayna’s Desk

Continued from Page B-3 stopped by Sue and Harvey’s for a few minutes in Choctaw. Soon after we arrived home, Mrs. Shamblin came by on her way home from Lubback where whe had attended the funeral of her Uncle “Chick”.

Later I called Ada Faye. She was home by herself. Jack had been home and had gone back to Texas to work a few days. At our Thanksgiving event we had: Jesse, Lena, Imogene,

Otto, Randy, Thonda, Sheila, Teresa, Jackie, Earlene, Mark, Debbie, Sue, Harvey, Mike, Keith, Patsy, Danny, Todd, Chad, Harold, Bernice, Mrs. Osborn, Ed, Leah, Joy, Paul,

One Pharmacist’s View

Some would say going to Branson every Thanksgiving like my family does is a tradition — others just call it a habit. This year our little party of 9 rented a 4 bedroom condo which afforded a little more luxury and most importantly, more space for us to relax in. Making the trip this year were repeaters, Tim and Lesli Costner, Emilee and Meegan, Chock and Eula Tilley Kathryn Costner and my dear wife Pat and myself. Our first stop was in Silver Dollar City where we took in the Christmas decorations, and watched the traditional Christmas Show at the Opera House — “A Dickens’s Christmas.” This is an annual event at the “City” and the acting, singing and staging is well done and set to live music. The Dickens Christmas show really sets the mood and helps get you in the true spirit of Christmas. We

also did the usual stuff there such as the Saloon Show and everything we saw was pretty well done except the popcorn wasn’t as good as last year’s. Oh wait — maybe it was last year’s. The next day was for shopping and that night we ate out at Dana’s a well-known BBQ place and then went to see the Presley’s. It was a good enough show and was sold out. When it ended and as we tried to leave we found we were in the middle of a heavy rain storm. I paused at the door, not wanting to drown. There were patrons trying to get back in out of the rain and others pushing to get out. I had ridden in with Chock and he bolted right on out into the rain. My wife said, “Let’s go!” So I grabbed her and away we went. She was running right behind me but when I turned her loose she disappeared. But by then I had Chock’s Dodge

Deep Fork Community Action Comedy, A Chance To Trim The Stress From Your Holiday! We all know the reason for the season, but sometimes it gets lost in what we’ve made of the event. So forget the worry, hassle, strain, and stress of the holidays. Take a fun break before you have to dive into the crass commercialism of all that spend, spend, spend, and noise, noise, noise. If you do, you’ll be able to stand that visit from the frowning in-laws and your crabby old uncle Fred a lot better. Okmulgee’s own: Neighbors without Shame Players will present a hilarious live Christmas themed stage play on December 10th at 6:00 PM in the Holdenville High School Cafeteria. The Neighbors without Shame are veterans of twenty nine murder mystery comedy presentations. They’ve staged shows from Tulsa to Oklahoma City with stops in Okmulgee, Okemah, Henryetta, Checotah, Durant, Hugo, Mounds, Eufaula, and even here in Holdenville. This production is a behind the scenes look at a dysfunctional 1930’s radio station trying to air the Christmas episode of its weekly crime drama “M-Stands for Murder”. The story is a hoot, but it’s what goes on behind the microphones that is really funny. Watch the Foleyman miss his sound cues, the ham actors argue over parts, and the station director pull his hair out. All while delivering a decidedly unique twist to the story of Scrooge and his visits by the ghosts. There will be finger foods, soft drinks, and door prizes. Tickets are only $15 each and must be purchased in advance of the show. All proceeds go directly to help the needy families of Hughes County. So pack up the family and call (405) 379-6813, or drop by the Deep Fork offices at 109 E. Main, Holdenville, for tickets.

Ram Truck in sight and grabbed the door as the rain pounded on my coat — which I had over my head. The truck was empty. Dumbfounded I looked inside for his “backup” camera which was there. That meant I had the right truck. I ran to the rear and yes, it was an Oklahoma tag. It was definitely his truck and no Chock! But wait. I could see yet another Dodge Ram Truck edging its way through the pouring rain. Identical to this one except Chock was driving it. I raced through the rain and pounded the window as I clawed helplessly at the locked door. He either thought I was a car-jacker or something as he didn’t let me in. Chock eased forward another few feet as I loped alongside wondering if a person could drown standing up. Chock finally let me in. Boy was I ever wet. I wondered what happened to my wife. Poor thing had just vanished in the storm. Then I see her — Pat and Eula coming out from under the canopy, dry and snug, laughing and skipping their way into the truck. “I thought you were right behind me,” I said. “No, you and some other woman took off and I wondered where you were going.” Boy was I ever wet as I wondered who the poor woman was that I had dragged out into the rain that cold windy night. The next night we attended “The Redneck Tenors” which while our attendance did not speak very well of our culture and taste, was a pretty good show. We got up early the next morning and came back to Allen — to a house that many people would soon arrive expecting to visit and eat — an experience that was a lot more fun than jogging along in a blinding rain beside Chock’s big Dodge Ram Truck. In fact it was a very nice Thanksgiving — Branson and all. I hope you and your loved ones had a great Thanksgiving too and that you are able to attend your church next Sunday. You may be interested to know that December 4 (this Sunday) is The Hanging of The Green at First Baptist Church at 11AM. The public is invited to this annual and beautiful celebration of the season and I encourage you to attend if you can. Wayne Bullard, Pharm. D waynebullard@sbcglobal.net

Joan, Ralph and Mae. Also at the dinner were Jack’s family, Jim’s family, Clyde’s family. Jesse Wayne and Linda were missing from the dinner. FRIDAY NOVEMBER 28TH, 1975—Our snow all melted yesterday and last night. The south wind continues blowing-still cold. We had breakfast, fed animals, and drove to Holdenville. I had hairdo at Irene’s. Ralph had his eyes checked with young Dr. Bob Irby. He will have to have new glasses and frames. ($66.00) We took Mrs. Hensley Osborn some beans (canned) and chow-chow. Also left chow-chow and pear preserves for Harold and Bernice with Mrs. Horn. We paid grocery bill-bought groceries-came by Horntown-bought dog food. Ralph had bought gas and filled water cans at Mr. Clark’s KerrMcGee. We came home after we had eaten at Pat’s-read the mail-I cooked supper, then called Mrs. Lester. Ralph had to get a lot of our cattle up that had slipped out someway while we were gone. We had a letter from Mrs. W. B. Wright todayhad a check from Medicare for $28.80-Mr. Morgan’s check for $17.25 was returned from the bank “Insufficient Funds.” SATURDAY NOVEMBER TH 29 , 1975—This has been a cloudy blustery day. Tonight about 8:00 rain and wind blew in accompanied by much thunder and lightning—a very heavy rainfall. We each slept a short nap today. Ralph fed cattle, cats and dog. I cooked, washed dishes, wrote checks to pay bills, wrote some news and some other business letters—I called Zula Abernathy tonight. Mrs. Lester called me. I read some from Bible, studied more on S.S. Lesson, read a part of Marjorie Holmes’ book “How Can I Find You, God?” I picked up some hickory nuts for Mrs. Lester. Had a letter today from Pauline Hill.

PAGE B-6 —HOLDENVILLE TRIBUNE—NOVEMBER 30, 2011

The Pastor Ponders In a sermon by Michael A. MacDonald titled “A Scruffy Old Stable”, the story is told about a congregation that erected a nativity scene with great care. Some new residents of the community were offended by the appearance of the nativity scene because the boards of the sable were warped and rough. They wanted to donate a can of paint to “beautify” the manger. The minister was new and, out of a spirit of concern, took the matter up with the church board. Members of the board responded, “Do you think the stable Jesus was born in was all nice and pretty?” Good point! I’m afraid that many of us “prettify” Christmas in a variety of ways by getting too caught up in the commercialism of the season. We “prettify” Christmas by falling into what I call “The Norman Rockwell Syndrome” which, among other things, elevates the family at Christmas as being more important than the Christ whose birth brings us all into the family of God. Even though we struggle to change things, I invite you this Christmas to go counter to society by remembering that we are prone to forget that: Jesus was born in a dirty smelly stable. He was perhaps even born in a donkey’s feeding trough. Christmas is not commercial. It is not Santa Claus! It is not

to be “prettified” with tinsel and sentimentalism. We Christians get caught up in the secular side of Christmas far too much. Let’s remember who we are celebrating and who we worship! As important as our families are, Christmas is a time to remember others, especially the less fortunate and those who have no family. Reach out this season to help someone outside of your family and you will discover one of the many beautiful truths of the season. “It is when we try to ‘prettify’ Christmas that we cover up its true beauty,” Rev,. Macdonald reminds us. Let us remember

that we celebrate the birth of Jesus who lived more for others than for Himself and who calls us to do likewise. While we may not be able to avoid the secular side of the season completely, remember that it is up to us as Christians to remind others of the true meaning of the season by the way we celebrate it. May we then celebrate the birth of our Savor in ways that testify to those about us that Christmas is a season of worshipping and adoring the Son of God who came to bring god’s love and healing to this broken world and our broken lives!

Local Funeral Director Reviews Varied Army Career - Now Retiring From Reserves By Fran Little March 9, Major James L. Hobgood will retire from active Reserve status. He likens his 22 years of continuous service to brushing one’s teeth, “You hate to take the time to do it but after finishing, you have a clean refreshed feeling.” Major Hobgood is of the opinion every young man should have a tour with one branch of the services. “In this Space day,” he said, “no other specialized job can offer as much to our young men LPXLP

Geraldine and Reba kept changing tables until they finally won a game! Jean and

as a career with one of the services.” He is also a firm believer all officers should begin as enlistees. “Serving on both sides of the fence,” he said, “makes a man a better officer – he understands the soldier better.” Major Hobgood was drafted into service the day after his 19th birthday in March 1943. He had entered his first year at the University of Oklahoma majoring in petroleum engineering. Processed at Ft. Sill, he completed 13 weeks of basic with the Medical Reserve Training Corps. He was sent to Vancouver, Wash. As a Medical NCO with the 605th Company, just being activated into Federal service. He spent two years serving on special duty with the 82nd Air Borne Division, 101 Air Borne Division, 17th Air Borne Division, and the First and Third Army Divisions until the close of the war in Europe. In 1945 he and 11 other enlisted men were offered a direct commission as officers in the army in Brussels, Belgium. However, there was only one catch to this offer, “We had to sign up for 18 months longer in the European Theater of Operations and most of us were due to leave, on rotation, at that time. Only one person out of the 12 took the offer.” Upon his return to the United States, Major Hobgood decided to stay in the

Reserve – a decision he has never regretted. Accepted a direct commission in the reserve in August, 1950, as second lieutenant, Major Hobgood went on active duty with Oklahoma’s 45th Infantry Division in September, 1950. Serving in Korea with the 45th, he was released from active duty July 9, 1952. Rejoining the division in December of the same year, he stayed with it until August, 1962 when he requested a transfer to the USAR, McAlester. Major Hobgood will be remembered as the young lieutenant about whom an article was written several years ago in the Daily Oklahoman. At that time Hobgood was a lieutenant with Service company, 180th infantry regiment, with the 45th in Korea. His job as that time was behind the lines and did not call for participation in a raid on an enemy hill. But he took the day off to search in the ice and snow in no-man’s land for three wounded men from Easy company. Why did he do it? “I used to be in the first platoon of Easy company. I just took a little time off today to see if I could help them. It was their first big fight.” Major Hobgood is owner and director of Hobgood Funeral Home, 220 N. Oak. He is married to the former Glenadene Gibson. They are parents of two children, Judy Lynn, 17, and James, Jr., 15.

Sharon won 3 games. Jean shot the moon and went down, so treats are on Jean next week! Shirley and Alyne won one game. Lynn and Betty had a really good night as they won 5 games. Everyone applauded when those two had to get up and move to another table! But we all know that it was all done in fun! A big “Thank You” to Lynn for the stuffed celery and Shirley H. for the spicy crackers! They were delicious! Come and join us! You will have a good time, I promise! See ya next week!
