Blackey Christmas sale set


I hope everyone had as good a Thanksgiving as I and my family did. It’s always nice to get everyone together.

Stella Dixon of Blackey had to be taken back to the Pikeville hospital. She was not doing well at all. She was feeling better by Friday and got to come home. My mom, Jean, went and visited with her Saturday and she was doing a lot better.

Sally Caudill of Dry Fork, has recently been in the Hazard hospital. She fell and broke her hip. She is now home and doing better. Home Health comes in and helps take care of her. Sally is the mother of Allen Fugate of Blackey.

Virgil Combs of Carcassonne, is home from the hospital and doing better. He was in for about two weeks.

Mae Fugate of Carcassonne, and all her family had their Thanksgiving on Sunday because one of her daughters and her husband were gone on a trip. Von and Danny Hall of Blackey, were at Nag’s Head in North Carolina for about a week.

Mae received some bad news on Saturday. Her brother, Gene Francis from Florida, was in the hospital and had to have fluid drained off his brain and was not doing well. Gene fell off of a moving van about six years ago and he has been having problems ever since.

Sarah Back was in from Lexington for the weekend with her parents, Dorse and Debbie Back, and Brandie of Elk Creek. They took Thanksgiving dinner up to our cousin, Eric Back, in Letcher Manor Nursing Home.

There will be a community Christmas sale at the Blackey Public Library on Tuesday, Dec. 4, from 4 to 8 p.m. Stop by after work to shop, meet your friends and neighbors, and enjoy light refreshments. There will be craft items, gift items, vintage books, jewelry, and homemade goodies among other items. You can call 633-4013 for more information and to reserve a vendor space. Everyone is welcome.

My mother, Jean Blair, and my sister, Terry, had to go to Prestonsburg last week for a doctor’s appointment. My mom has been having problems with shaking. At times she couldn’t hold things. The doctors think she has an overactive thyroid so she had blood work and should know soon if that is what the problem is.
