There still are many uses for the old Sears Catalog which was once called the Sears, Roebuck and Co. catalog. At Christmas it is called the wish book. Many children have worn out that wish book. When I was a child we cut paper dolls out of the wish book. We would have them spread out all over the house. I heard someone last week saying her little sister has Barbies all over her room. The generation of girls now has Barbie dolls, the Barbie house, and everything that goes with them spread out all over the house. Handing a child the wish book keeps them quiet for quite a while. A few years ago I had my lap full of my twin granddaughters and had only one wish book. One of them said, “I need that.” The other one said, “I need that too.” The first one said, “You can’t need that. I said it first.” The first thing I knew they were scratching, biting, and pages of the Sears catalog were flying. I was in the middle of a fight. So it’s best to have more than one wish book if you have more than one child. Anyway, years ago we had creative minds in using that catalog and that was a lot cheaper than real dolls. ƒThe senior adult gathering at the Dale Fincher Family Christian Life Center at Tignall Baptist Church had a great time Tuesday of last week. Before having lunch, Leigh Beggs of Lincolnton brought an emotional testimony. She has been through two big crises and can still be a very positive person with a beautiful smile. Everyone brought a variety of salads that were delicious. We found out that James Sherrer needs a GPS to find the garbage dumps. He says he keeps passing them and forgetting to stop. His wife, Samille, says that the GPS is still in the box. Of course James had his trusty camera out catching everyone with their mouths open. ƒWe welcome Don Adams of Elberton, the newest resident at Denard's Personnal Care, to Tignall. ƒBetty Nix of Clarksville is spending several days with her sisters, Mary Ann Williams and Peggy Ware. ƒCaleb Tyler of Hoschton spent Friday night through Monday with his grandparents, Alex and Kay Tyler.
