Kay and Laura Wheeler visited with Barbara Reed in Olive Branch, on Monday. She is staying with her daughter while recovering from surgery.
Congratulations to Leigh and Dick Douglas on their latest arrival - seven precious pups! They were born last week to their beautiful mother, Bonnie, who is a golden retriever.
Happy 80th birthday to Lois Swanee! One would never have known she was 80 if there had not been a party on Saturday for her to celebrate this milestone. Lois is one of the most well-kept ladies in Holly Springs who still has a spring in her step, not to mention how fabulous she looks! Wonder where the fountain of youth can be found in Holly Springs, as I believe those who are in what is considered the older group look so much younger than their years?!
Pam and Hank Thomas and children, Tiffany, Will and Peyton, Larry and Carri Hutchens and children, Alison and Mary Catherine, Dustin Hutchens and Michelle Wells, all of Holly Springs, and Boyce Hollingsworth of Byhalia, recently returned from their annual ski trip to Beaver Creek, Co. They were graced with wonderful weather and fantastic snow for skiing.

Life begins at 80
By LOIS SWANEE
Wow! Turning 80 is wonderful! Everyone is surprised that you are still alive! When you turn 80 everybody treats you with respect and wants to help you up the steps, hold the door for you, and forgive you for forgetting their names. Sometimes I cant even remember my grandchildrens beautiful names.
