Hello to everyone. Hope all of you had a good week.
I wanted to wish Paige Brown a late happy birthday on Nov. 11. She turned seven years old and had a party at Cowan Community Center with several friends and family present. She really enjoyed it and got lots of gifts. Her Granny (Irene) and Granddad (Eugene) bought her an electric scooter and she’s had lots of fun on it.
I went to a baby shower at Cumberland on Nov. 12 at the Blair Chapel. Hannah (Boggs) Day and her husband David are expecting their first child (a boy) sometime in January. Over 50 people were present at the Blair Chapel and she received lots of nice gifts. The shower was given by ladies from the church and some of her friends.
Grandparents for the first time will be Cathy and Keith Boggs and they are so excited and can’t wait for the new arrival. I think it will be sometime in December and not January when she is due.
Hannah’s grandma is Carol Lewis. She seems to be doing a little better healthwise and it is always good to see hers Some of the other ladies present were Daisy Boggs, Ramona Boggs, Jessica Boggs, Miranda (Gilley, forgot her married name, sorry), Lisa Boggs, Lisa’s mother Margaret, and Autumn Boggs.
Irene Day wasn’t able to make it but sent a gift. There were also lots of others. Sorry I didn’t know all of your names.
On Saturday night, a couple of my friends and I went to a revival service at the Nazarene Church at Whitco. The service was good and the people were nice and friendly. Kevin Campbell was the special speaker and Tim Amburgey was the special singer. It felt good going to church somewhere!
I just got a call from my friend’s daughter who said their mom and dad had a house fire caused by a wood stove. They all got out OK, thank God, but their home of over 30 years is gone. I am so sorry for their loss.
Melinda (K.K.) and I went to the nursing home and visited Barbara Boggs. She recognized me and tried to talk a little, but I couldn’t hear what she was saying. Then we visited Lovell (Banks) Sturgill. We had a good visit with her. Jenny Day was sleeping. I will try to visit with her another time.
My husband James and son Mike were busy all day Saturday working on building a storage shed. It still needs some work but is looking good. Irene came out a few times and watched them build it. Back in the day she would have grabbed a hammer and nails and would have helped them. She loves to watch people work on buildings and to help if she was able.
My son Chad almost had a car accident the other night on his way to work when the back tire went flat. Thank God he was OK.
My granddaughters all seem to be OK. They keep wanting to know when we are coming to Indiana. We tell them soon unless the weather gets too bad. Sure do miss all of them!
Well, all of the neighborhood went deer hunting Saturday. Haven’t heard if they killed any yet. I saw lots of hunters out on fourwheelers, just hope they don’t shoot the wrong dear!
