Attending Teresa Thompson Benefit Dinner

We went to the Teresa Thompson Benefit Dinner and Pie Auction Sunday afternoon at the Poteau Upper Elementary School cafeteria. The top items that were up for auction were Elaine Jensen's fried pies, Pete Crandell's chocolate-covered strawberries and Linda Newman's best-ever chocolate-chip cookies.My son, Jacques, had $120 stashed away from his birthday and Christmas. He got his bid card, No. 27, and he waited for Linda's cookies to come on the auction block.Taylor Branstetter was our auctionneer, and Jeff Jensen was the spotter, running around yelling and going crazy. I felt like I was in a Ray Stevens' video.I'll see you at the boat ramp.Save the world, recycle.God bless our troops and veterans.Have a great weekend.• • •Any questions or pictures, make contact with Jody Ray Adams on Facebook, on “The Jody Ray Fishing Hotline” at (918) 649-7387 or email to
