Hey Gary, You said it will be in Somersville MO.
Is that the one in Texas county?
I ask because I am from the Summersville Hartshorn area, but I noticed that
you spelled it different, Are there 2 summersville's but with different
The one I am from, we spell it with a U, you have S O M E.
And is she from that area? that last name doesn't ring a bell, There only
about 500 people in the area that's why I ask.
I don't remember any other blind people in the area but my self and one
other older guy that is in a band, it is so remote that we can't get around.
Anyway let me know if we are talking about the same place.
If we are, it will be in the local paper next week.
