Happy late birthday to Ann (Annie Granny) Frazier of Knott County. She turned 70 on Oct. 2.

Tommy Halcomb and his wife, Loreen, of Carcassonne, have both been sick. Tommy has breathing problems and has been in the hospital but is now home. Loreen had to be taken to the emergency room because her blood pressure was too high and they had a hard time getting it down. I wish them the best.

My sympathy to the family of Pascal Dixon of Elk Creek. He died Oct. 2, He had been sick for some time. His wife, Louise, has also been having some health problems. Pascal was 92.

Carolyn Sue Walters of Elk Creek, had to spend a night in the hospital recently. She was very weak, they think from a virus.

My dad, P-nut, had a family member pass away in Indiana. Mavis Ison died Oct. 3. She had been ill for quite awhile. She was married to the late Dee Ison, who was my dad’s first cousin.

Craig Abbinanti of Carcassonne, was hit in the eye with a piece of metal while he was at work and had to be taken to the emergency room. It put a hole in his eye and he has to stay off work for about seven days. When he goes back to the doctor they might release him to go back to work. His daughter, my greatniece Ava Golden, also had to be taken to the ER one evening. She had been keeping a high fever for about two weeks and they found out she had strep throat.
