Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well, and I hope you have had a good week. It was a good week for me.
I enjoyed a great birthday dinner for my granddaughter, Angie Mullins, at the home of Sandra and Billy Hatton and all of their family. The only thing wrong: I don’t think it’s right for a daughter-in-law to be a better cook than her mother-in-law, but if the shoe fits, I guess it’s okay.
Louise Shepherd, Joyce Howard and Bobby Ray Howard and myself all went to Ermine Center last Friday. No one was there, and the door was locked. They were probably gone on a trip. I usually go on those days, and if I went more regularly I would have known.
I’m glad that Shirley Niece and Aggie Hatton are out of the hospital. They sent David Trent to UK Hospital in Lexington. I hope he is doing better. He can see his nephew, Dr. Kevin Hatton, there.
I need to tell Mildred Necessary Pence that there was a line missing in last week’s news. I said that it was good seeing Mildred Necessary Pence and her sister, Sharon Necessary Webb, wife of Danny Webb. Mildred and Sharon and their family were our neighbors up in Marlowe Hollow a few years back when they were little girls. Mildred lives in Roanoke, Va., and gets The Eagle,
and keeps up with all of us.
It was good seeing Wanda Tyree Stidham the other day. Thank you for the nice things you said. I think you were just being nice.
I had a nice phone visit with my friend, Roberta Willie in Roanoke, Va., yesterday. She’s been such a good friend for many years.
Christine Fields, I read your news every week and you seem like a real nice lady yourself. We didn’t get a chance to talk much while we were on jury duty.
I read all the other writers also, Emma Lou Engle, Rose Ballard, the Blackey news, and Doris Banks, and they always do a good job with it.
It was good seeing Henrietta Absher last week. I’ve always liked her and hardly ever see her. You can go to all the stores and you always meet friends there. That’s about the only way you see each other. Everyone is so busy, and maybe like me, they don’t get much done.
Sunday was a great day. We had Pastor Appreciation Day for our pastor, Bro. John Conn. He is one of the best pastors! He gives 200 percent in my opinion. If anyone is sick or needs him for anything, he’s right there, and it’s not just for his members only, it’s anyone who needs him. We need more like him.
I just heard that Tommy Trent’s wife, Sue, died in Indiana. Tommy is the brother of David Trent of Whitco. Our sympathy goes out to all of his family. I hope David is doing better. My son Rob, of Owensboro, was planning on going to the funeral. She was his sister-in-law, and they were real close.
Well, by now the election is over. I hope all the best ones win. I’m sure they have all been trying hard. Everyone can’t win, and it’s distressful when they lose. A lot of good people were running.
May God bless all of you with good health and happiness. Try to be in church somewhere this week.
