Sweet & Sassy: Mission accomplished


Yes, a mission was accomplished. Remember, me writing about that Mother’s Ring that was found in the Union City area that I had put in my March 25 column?

Julie Gray of Union City, Ohio, asked for my help in getting the word out about the ring she had found, so I figured if I put it in my column that some readers in that area might see it. And, it work.

A few days later, I got a call at home from Ruth Page, former head of the Darke County Humane Society, now living in Union City, Indiana. It was her ring!

And, she thanked me for being a part of it and I’m sure she thanked Julie over and over since it was a gift from her four children, one of whom now is deceased.

How good it is to help people!

Julie also wrote me a note afterwards, which for some unknown reason I couldn’t find as of this writing, telling me about what took place. She too was happy that she could find the rightful owner of that ring.

Now, everybody’s happy!


Well, I’m going to be on another one-week’s vacation, and will return to the office on April 17. Hope to get a lot accomplished. I want to make some changes in my lifestyle that will include healthier living, so I hope I will be energetic and get some physical work done at home.

I need a lot of prayers. I don’t want to sleep that week away. Besides, before the week ends, son Jamie will be ready to send me back to work. Gotta love him.


Don’t forget:

• There will be a Treaty City Seniors dance Monday at the VFW Post on North Ohio Street in Greenville.

• The next hymn sing at Rose Hill Church will be at 4 p.m. on Sunday.

• Ansonia American Legion will host its next fish fry on Friday, starting at 4 p.m.
