Prayer requested for Luke Story; Mrs. Max Massengill; Joy Gilliam and Louise Clenney. Melbern Jones is improving in PT. Loving thoughts go to Keith Ross in Humboldt Veterans Home, hugs go to Candy and Imogene Fitts and kisses to Regina East while improving at home. Harold James is recovering and working with determination to keep his brain “juiced-up” to help his team. I’m feeling better after my injury Sept, 28. I return to the doctor this week. Thanks for prayers.
Brain tidbits: Anteaters eat 35,000 ants daily; first Native American honored on U.S. stamp was Pocahontas; 18 foxes are killed for one coat; and over 55 minks are killed for one coat. “Fake fur” is less than $10 a yard. Keep this in your brain, Harold.
Jacks Creek Fire Department stew will be ready at 11 a.m. the last Saturday of the month, Oct. 26. Cost is $18. A pimento cheese sandwich and a bowl of hot stew…what more can one desire on a cool day?
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. I recently read a report that linked animal abuse to domestic violence and violent crimes. “Abusers demonstrate power and control over the family by threatening, harming or killing animals.” In its “Pets And Domestic Violence” report, the organization stated that 13 percent of intentional animal abuse cases involve domestic violence, and a massive 71 percent of pet owners who enter a shelter say their abuser had previously threatened, hurt or murdered a family pet. In addition, the investigation of reported animal cruelty within a household often leads to social services discovering hidden domestic abuse in that household. If you need help regarding domestic abuse, you can contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline on 1-800-799-SAFE. If you suspect a case of animal cruelty, call the American Humane Association at 303-792-9900.
Be kind to children, elderly and animals. We can be their voice. Keep the numbers posted in your billfold. No person or animal deserves to be abused. I am proud to say my pets have a great life. I only wish all animals were treated as well as in the days God created them first and for His pleasure. He simply allowed Man to name them. I believe pets will be in heaven – you have your opinion.
I made my check contribution to the City Pound and City Dog Park and will send a check to Loving Paws. I contribute small amounts but to several organizations to make the effort to show I care. Each dollar counts and uplifts the organization.
