Recently Bob, Hunter Banks and myself took Don and Coreen Pridemore on a four-wheeler ride up to see Toby and Colleen Breeding’s little cabin.
It was a nice little flat area where the cabin sits, with fruit trees planted around it, and a fire pit for good cooking. I hear the family has been enjoying some outdoor meals over the fire. Coreen supplied them with a cast iron Dutch oven and received some packs of Toby’s frozen fish in exchange.
Our sympathy to Dale Blair and his family. He recently lost his wife, Melissa. She was laid to rest in the Hampton Cemetery above Letcher School.
Glad to see Lance Breeding out to Blair Branch Church last Sunday. He had been at the hospital on Saturday and was on the prayer list Saturday evening at church.
Astor Blair is doing some better and is now a patient at Letcher Manor. He and his sister, Mary, spend time together now that he is there.
Get well wishes also to Virginia Dare Back, who was recently in the hospital. Her family takes such good care of her and makes sure she gets anything she needs or wants.
Bob stopped in to visit with Evangene and Arizona Adams on Sunday. They always enjoy a visit and are both doing pretty well. He dropped in at Jenette Adams’s also, and visited with her and Gary Eugene.
Joyce Adams recently fell and had to make a trip to the emergency room. Nothing was broken, but she scraped her face up badly. Bob visited her and Bill on Sunday.
There will be a lesson on making your own laundry detergent on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at the Appalachian Early Childcare building. The cost is $10, and everyone will leave with a gallon of detergent and directions on how to do it. The lessons will begin at 1 p.m. on that day.
Sorry to hear that Verlon Breeding has fallen. I hope he will be okay.
Just a short column this week. Hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather.
