BY PAM BURRIS
Roger, Betty and Matt Tipton of Macon and Dean and Pam Burris of Elmer spent Thanksgiving Day and night with Mike, Melanie, Mady and Maddox Tipton of Trenton. All went home on Friday afternoon. Mady made a place mat at school for Thanksgiving and her teacher said without hesitation the first thing Mady said she was thankful for was God’s love. She was also thankful for her family, her kitty, her horse (she doesn’t have one, her mother thought she meant her stick pony) and her brother.
