Blairs mark anniversary with dinner


There will be a yard sale held at the home of Doris Adams at the Frog Pond below Blackey on Friday, August 1, beginning at 9 a.m. It is a three or more family sale.

Michelle Caudill of Carcassonne, is in St. Joseph Hospital in Lexington. She is seven months pregnant and they have her on bed rest for about four weeks hoping she won’t have her baby till then. I wish her the best.

Danny Blair of Letcher is in St. Joseph also. He had open heart surgery but is having problems with fluid build-up around his lungs.

On July 19, myself, my sisters Terry Dixon and Debbie Fugate, and our parents, P-nut and Jean Blair, went out for dinner at the Highland Winery at Seco. We had a really nice time. We were celebrating their anniversary, which was on the 16th. Their neighbor, Patty Pennington, is the cook and she makes homemade rolls that will melt in your mouth.

Virgil Combs of Carcassonne, is in Central Baptist Hospital in Lexington on a ventilator. He has a lot of trouble with his breathing and is not doing too well. He was taken down on the 20th after a family reunion held at the Carcassonne Community Center.

Leslie Gibson, Dustin Adams, Lauren Adams and Leslie’s sister, Katelynn, all went to Tennessee recently and spent five nights. They went to Wonderworks. Lauren loved riding the train and carousel. Dustin and Katelynn rode the skyscraper and the slingshot. They also went shopping and rented a second cabin over in North Carolina. They all had a good time but Leslie said it was very hot and they had to wait and do a lot in the evening.

My heart just breaks for Tim Wright and Deb Combs of Isom. Their precious daughter, Sharlee Danielle Wright, died at the University of Kentucky Hospital early Friday morning, She had a blood clot go from her lungs into her heart. Sharlee was only 20. My sympathy to the family. Sharlee’s stepfather, Kenneth Combs, owns Combs Pet Kingdom at Isom.

Happy birthday to Opal Jent of Carcassonne; it is on July 3.

Happy birthday to Autumn Skyy Madden of Crases Branch. She turned four on July 27. She is the daughter of Tim and Donella Madden. She had a party at Fugate’s Waterpark on Saturday.

Happy birthday to Jeremy Maggard of Richmond. His is also on July 31.

Richard Wright of Indiana died over the weekend. He had been sick with lung cancer for some time. He was the brother of Linda Colly of Jeremiah.

The Combs/Jones reunion was held June 20 and 21 at Gerald and Debbie Combs’s home in Knott County. In attendance were Tane Campbell, Dylan and Christian Adams, Brigette Stacy, Barry and Tara Combs, Tiffanie and Apollo Brewer, Bennett and Linda Combs of Ice, Liz and Jeep Combs of Ohio, Opal and Faye Taylor of Isom, Tommy, Nettie, Angela Combs and Gaythlee and family of Letcher, Shade and Bill Jones and family of Florida, and a host of other relatives, nieces, nephews and friends.
