Bald eagles were nesting on the Ohio River


Just a quick little column this week. I almost forgot completely about writing.

Saturday, May 4, the Blackey neighborhood will be having a yard sale beginning at 9 that morning.

Bob and I left Saturday evening and spent the night in Lexington at our daughter Jessie and Andy’s home.

We got up early Sunday morning and went to Goshen, Oh., to attend the Northern New Home Church. We loved seeing everyone again and visiting their church for their union meeting and dinner, and catching up with those we only see about once a year.

So sorry that Frank Copeley and J. B. Francis have had health problems.

Brad Collie, Elwood Cornett, Scotty Halcomb and his dad all drove up together on Sunday morning and said that it really rained on them as they headed to Ohio .

Th e Lord really blessed our mountains with the redbud and dogwood trees. You don’t see them as you get toward Ohio.

We drove back our usual route, old Highway 52 by the Ohio River and crossed over at Maysville to Paris and the old road to Winchester. There’s so much pretty scenery throughout the back roads.

We saw people with their binoculars looking at bald eagles nesting on the Ohio River. It was a huge nest with the eagle in plain sight.

Our sympathy to the family of Billy Caudill, whose funeral was held last Saturday. He had been sick for awhile and was well-loved by so many. A large crowd attended the visitation and the funeral.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Billie Jo, Amy and Ann and their families, and to his brothers and sisters, family and friends.

It was just a short time ago that his mother, Grace, was called home and the family has had such a lot of sorry in that short time span.

Ila Adams has had visits from two of her brothers, first Shelby and then Dean, and their wives, too. Also, Merle and Eolia, Ila’s sisters, have recently visited.

Coreen Pridemore had a birthday this past Monday, and some of us brought dinner and goodies in at lunchtime for her and Dad.

Their granddaughter, Amber Williams, and her family, Shane, Luke and Derrick, spent last week in Maine visiting Shane’s father and family there.

I saw Jack Pinyerd recently and he now has a walking boot on his broken ankle and is getting around better.

Alice Adams of Woodrock is in Letcher Manor for physical therapy, and Jennette Adams of Blair Branch is also in rehab therapy there.

I’m glad that Geraldine Ison got good results from her recent doctor visit in Lexington.

Homer Smith will be seeing to the upkeep for the Dixon, Back and Smith cemeteries above the Dixon Memorial Church. Those who have loved ones buried there, please send donations to him at Sycamore Loop, Jeremiah, Ky. 41826.

That’s it for now. About out of time. Have a good week.
