Bob Caudill celebrates 90th birthday


Hello everyone – I hope all stayed safe during the ice storms and snowstorms that happened this past week (and longer). We were lucky in the sense we didn’t lose power. Our little corner of the world had better weather than other parts of Kentucky.

I hope all are still staying healthy. Friends are having issues with the coronavirus and it’s scary. Mike and I are waiting on our call from the health department to get our vaccines scheduled. I called a week ago and was told they were waiting on vaccines. That was before the ice and snow came along. Hopefully we’ll hear something soon.

My uncle, Bob Caudill, celebrated his 90th birthday during the week. He received over a hundred birthday cards. It was great. I believe all birthdays should be celebrated, especially the milestone ones.

As Mike and I drove by Randy Brown’s place this week, I counted five lambs in the field. They were playing, which was cute. I was thinking about the lambs when suddenly there was a deer beside us. I yelled and Mike stopped. The deer turned and then went behind us. Mike said he didn’t think the deer would run into us and we were going slow. I have a deer phobia of being hit. It was a nice-looking deer.

Right now, CAT’s favorite thing is playing with pen tops. It keeps him busy and I usually throw the tops away.

Adam and Samantha Honeycutt of Georgetown came in to attend Emerson Stevens’ Valentine’s party. Emerson is the son of Phoebe and Jerred Stevens of Mayking. He is the grandson of John and Libby Honeycutt of Whitesburg.

A late happy birthday to Preston Meade Kincer. He turned 18 on February 22, 2021.

A big welcome to a new family member. Charles Rawlin White arrived on February 3, 2021. His parents are Ellen and Ryan White of Liberty. The grandparents are Debbie and Jeff Vice of Flemingsburg, and Cherie and Shannon White of Liberty. The great-grandparents are Thelma and Glennon Ison of Flemingsburg; Juanita Delp of Liberty; and Faye White of Liberty. Congratulations to all and we welcome Charlie to the family.

Hannah Harris of Louisville started a new job as a Case Management Program Clinical Coordinator for “The Mentor Networks”. The Mentor Networks is the first therapeutic foster care agency in the state of Kentucky and is located in Louisville. Hannah is the daughter of Laura and Mike Harris of Lexington and the granddaughter of Bob and Ramona Caudill of Little Cowan.

On Monday, Mike and I had to go to Pikeville. One of our stops was at Tractor Supply. The cashier rang us up and gave us the total. Neither one of us moved to pay. I looked at Mike and said, “Am I paying?” Mike responded with “one of us should.” The man in line behind us started laughing. He said it was the funniest thing he had heard. He said, we made his day. He was laughing when we left. I’m glad we entertained someone even though I had to pay.

When we got home from Pikeville, one of the big trees that was on the side of the highway had fallen across the driveway. We were able to get around it. Mike and John will be doing a lot of clean up. There’s another tree that looks like it may fall any time. John didn’t know a tree had fallen until we got home.

The quote of the week is: “Today’s weather forecast: heavy showers of blessings, strong winds to blow your worries away, followed by warm hugs and kisses to put a smile on your face.”
