I’m surprised with the pretty weather we had on Saturday. It could change in a minute, but I hope not.

I thought I would be turning my heat up, but I’ve turned it way down. We may get snow soon the way it changes, but we hope not.

I enjoyed a call the other day from Bertha Dye in Prestonsburg. She went to the dentist the other day and was surprised that the dentist was Jason Howard, my brother Hillard Howard’s son. She was so impressed and she said they talked, and she enjoyed seeing him.

I’d like to see him. It’s been years since I’ve seen him and I probably wouldn’t recognize him, but I’m not going to see him at his office. I have never enjoyed going to a dentist, but we do need them sometimes.

My sympathy goes out to the family of Loretta Adams. I went to high school with her and kept in touch with her for a lot of years. She called me a while back and said she was having health problems and I hadn’t been able myself to go see her. We were the same age.

Bertus Tyree in is Letcher Manor Rehab. He had surgery on his leg at the Veterans Hospital in West Virginia, and I heard he loved it at Letcher Manor.

He will get good treatment there. I was there 20 days, and they worked me hard. I fussed at them and then told them I really appreciated them for helping me.

I went to the revival at Cram Creek Church this past week, and I really enjoyed it. They had a large crowd every night. They have a new pastor now, Bro. John Sizemore. I saw a lot of old friends I hadn’t seen in years. I always like that.

Are you all disappointed because you didn’t get the snow that was expected? I sure was glad that it passed us. It’s pretty, but I don’t do well on snow and ice. I’m ready for spring.

I hope the cold weather hasn’t bothered our pretty flowers, trees and the gardens that some folks have planted.

I’ve not been getting out much and haven’t seen many people. I miss people visiting each other like they used to, but times change and people get more busy and don’t seem to have any spare time, even me.

I hope Glenora Eldridge is doing better. I send a big hello to her and to Bertha Dye and Elzie Ray Hatton, Alberta and Jerry Barker, and all my friends.

May God bless all of you, and try to be in church somewhere if you are able.
