Jan. 26 Dora News

By Charlie Carmichael

This cold snap has sure seemed colder since it followed the cooler days last week that finally peaked at near 70 degrees on Friday. Some of the outside bulbs were thinking of putting on sprouts.

These were delivered Wednesday. We sure got some good tomatoes this time. I delivered to two shut-ins again and really did enjoy seeing Sybil Victor for a short visit. She said Bill is doing some better now, and they are enjoying prettier weather. I also took them to Annelle Fullerton and she is doing fine. Tonya Craig delivered to Gene Simmons as she went by from school work.

Iva Lee Brown Wilmoth wa raised in the area of Richland southeast of Pep. She and Dale Wilmoth married in 1936 and lived in the Dora area until 1936 and lived in the Dora area until 1936.
