Barry Miles, his dog bitten by copperhead

Hello, everyone, everywhere. Hope you are all doing well. We have another month winding up. The weather has been good. We have been getting rain and the gardens are looking better.

Larry and Linda Hatton are sure having a good harvest. They brought home a truck bed of the prettiest corn I’ve ever seen, peaches and cream. I had never had it. I love it and I didn’t ever care for corn. They are letting me help put it away. No, not eating it all.

I appreciate Mary Baker from Letcher Manor going to visit Clyde. I appreciate all his visitors.

Louise Shepherd, Betty Tyree and I went down on Friday and then went on to Ponderosa for lunch. Kathleen Brock was supposed to go with us but she had to go to Prestonsburg that day. I hope she can go with us next time. We love getting together.


Kathleen’s son, Barry Miles, was bitten by a copperhead Friday night. His dog was bitten also. I hope they will both be OK. I’m scared to go out in weeds now.

Dorthy Tacket said she went to Cowan Chapel a few nights ago and they had a great service. Bro. Garth Tyree, a son of the late Ira Tyree of Dry Fork, preached. Ira worked at Marlowe with Clyde many years ago, in the ’50s I think.

It was nice seeing Ruth Banks on Thursday. I told her she looked so good. She said she sure didn’t feel good. I hope she’s feeling better.

Our pastor, Bro. John Conn, and all the church want to thank all the churches who came to our homecoming. The church was overrun and we had to bring in all our extra chairs and fill the aisles – our biggest ever. I better not start calling names, I’ll miss too many. They came from everywhere.

My brother, Hubert Howard was baptized at Cram Creek Church Sunday. There were eight of us brothers and sisters there. It was a good service; we all enjoyed it. Bro. J.M. Sloce did some great preaching.

There was a terrible wreck at the junction traffic light at the new school, Letcher Central. I haven’t heard if anyone was killed. Traffic was backed up almost to Mayking.

We were so sorry to hear of the death of Mae and Curt Hicks’s son, Tony Hicks. Our sympathy goes out to the family and the others who have lost loved ones. Gladys Quillen, who used to live in the Housing Project, also died. I knew her and some of her family.

May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week. We have a lot of churches. One may be just what you are looking for.
