Beverly Brunker got the scare of her life when she got up in the middle of the night and heard that chilling sound; a rattlesnake was in her bedroom! It was against the wall so Bob shooed it outside with something that Beverly didn’t see, and it zipped off. The way that Beverly thinks it got in was when she took the garbage out and left the kitchen door open. It was a good size snake. Keep those doors closed!

Gary and Barbara Shook have returned from Las Vegas where they visited with their son and his family and then went to Glendora to visit their daughter and her family. They came home with granddaughter Sydney Shook. Sydney enjoyed dinner at the 50’s Roadhouse and Barbara was the recipient of the Birthday song.
