Get well wishes are out to Elmer Buyce, Becky Hitchcock, Boyd Guynes, Don Vopleus, Richard Wormwood, and Ed Brown.

Duells take month-long trip in their R.V.

Glenda and Kent Duell of High St. and friend Ed Bennett of Warrensburg left on Nov. 18 to visit many new exciting places in their large, luxurious recreational vehicle.

They first stopped over in Fort Hood, Texas to surprise their son who was returning with other soldiers from Iraq. The return flight was delayed, so the group ended up staying an extra three days but finally Sergeant Luke Duell was there. Glenda said the Army base goes all out to celebrate the return of the soldiers, complete with bands.

After this, they traveled on to El Paso and spent a week with Ruth and Art Wadsworth and family -- son Karl Duell flew in from Albany to join in this get-together.

On the return trip, a stopover in Nashville to visit Kent's sister Tanya and then on to Graceland where they enjoyed the Elvis Presley estate and viewing other interesting area attractions dealing with the Presley saga.
