Hello everyone. Hope you are all doing well and keeping warm. I woke up this morning to see about two inches snow. It was pretty but I could wait for it, I wasn’t in any hurry for it. But it is winter and the weather hasn’t been too bad.
I talked with Dorthy Tacket this morning. She and her three daughters, Jeanelle Yonts, Deloris Holbrook and Charline Mason (all pretty girls), had been to the recreation center and walked and then went to Dairy Queen to eat. Sounds like a good time to me.
I don’t have any daughters, but I have four great sons and they sure are good to me and so are my daughters in-law. They are my daughters! I couldn’t love them more.
Emma Lou, late happy 67th anniversary to you and Red. No, I haven’t seen your sister Anna Lea in a long time. I told her I was watching her for you, that’s probably why she is hiding from me. She was looking good when I saw her.
I want to congratulate Abby Enfusse for being a winner in the Letcher County Governor’s Cup in social studies. Her grandparents, Margaret and Donald Enfusse, are good friends of mine and we go to church together. They are special friends of mine and have been for many years, since Donald was a little boy. I watched him grow up at Marlowe. His parents, the late Ray and Vivian Enfusse, were our good friends for years.
Loretta Hall Adams called me the other day to tell me her sister Lillian Hall Nease, wife of the late Bradley Nease, had died in Frankfort. They were formerly from Whitesburg. Lillian was born a triplet. Lena Hall, one of them, died 18 days after birth and the other one is Lora Craft Sexton. I think she lives at Isom.
Their brother, Billy Joe Hall, and their sisters, Betty Jean Amburgey and Loretta Adams, are all living here. I know they all get together at Loretta’s for reunions as often as they can and really enjoy it. I hear about all the good food. Loretta, Hedy and Sibyl all cook. I’ve had some of their food at the funeral of the late Jim Banks and boy, was it good!
I think we are supposed to get some more snow tonight (Friday) or tomorrow. That’s why I’m trying to get my little bit of gossip in early.
Keep our people who are sick in your prayers. Shirley Niece and Sonia Fields and lots of our friends have the flu.
I hope the weather stays good for church this weekend. I look forward to it all week.
My son Billy Hatton and wife Sandra went to Pine Mountain Grill for lunch today. There were lots of people there in spite of the snow. We still like to eat. I couldn’t have got off my hill and planned on staying in, but they came and picked me up. I was glad to get to go. I saw my sister-in-law Jenetta Howard and her daughter Doretha Bentley and a little grandson there. I don’t get to see them as much as I would like to.
I haven’t had a chance to get out much so there is nothing much to write about. Maybe next week we can get some good news. I don’t like bad news and I know folks don’t like to hear it.
May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week if the weather permits. I sure don’t like driving on slick roads.
