Wanda and Sam Howie were in a couple of weekends ago to visit with Wanda’s mom, Mae Fugate of Carcassonne. Wanda and Sam live in Tennessee. Mae had all her family over on Saturday for a cookout for the Fourth.

We had a dinner and fireworks here at our home on the Fourth. We always have a big crowd and have a really good time. We also celebrated Damian Miller’s birthday – it’s on July 6 – so happy birthday to him. We had his and my daughter Jennifer’s new precious baby Kaleb’s picture put on his cake. Kaleb is now three months old.

Jessica Dixon, Ava and Craig Abbinanti, all of Carcassonne, and Craig’s mom, Janice Reed of Whitesburg, went to Tennessee. They left on Sunday and came back Tuesday. They went to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and took Ava to Dollywood.

Happy anniversary on July 15 to my parents, P-nut and Jean Blair of Elk Creek. It’s their 52nd. And happy birthday to my dad. He turned 73 on July 16 and he always shows us how he can still jump up and kick his heels together. I can’t even do that.

A very special birthday to Lauren Leeann Adams of Jeremiah. She turns 3 on July 14. She is the daughter of Leslie Gibson and Dustin Adams. Lauren had a rough few weeks last month when she was in the University of Kentucky Hospital with heart problems, but thankfully she is doing so much better. And happy birthday to Dustin; his is on July 9.
