Hello, everyone. Hope you are all doing well.
I don’t know what in the world I will write about. I haven’t been out and about to see and talk to people. I did go up to Letcher Manor to see Clyde’s former roommate, Larry Polly. We really got close to him. He was glad to see me. I also saw Danola (Adkins) Andrews. Her arms were much better. I didn’t get to see Irene Brown. She had an eye doctor’s appointment.
I saw lots of the workers there; everybody knows me by name. They are all real sweet. Clyde asks about all of them.
I also went to the Ermine Center on Thursday and saw all the people there. There are so many of them sick.
I met Louise Brown’s daughter at a yard sale my grandson was having. I didn’t even find out her name. Her husband works at Letcher Manor. Sounds like Louise is having a hard time. I hope she gets better soon. She and Donald are really missed at the Ermine Center. They were so helpful, always lending a hand. We have a lot of really nice people up there. We are like a big family.
I just got word that Keith and Megan Carty are the proud parents of a new baby boy. His name is Ethan Alexander and, according to the proud grandmother, he is beautiful, just like his brothers, Trey and Trenton. Mother and son are doing fine. The baby was born in Pikeville. The family live in Jenkins.
My grandson, Dr. Keith Hatton, and family are back in Lexington and I’m sure they are happy to be there. So are their families.
My grandson, Chris Hatton, and wife Sara and their children, Beau, Brooke, and Gracie, left for a vacation in Tennessee. I’m sure they will have a good time.
My sister, Louise Shepherd, and I went to Hazard VA Nursing Home to visit Clyde. We enjoyed our trip.
I was so sorry to hear of the death of Frank Majority. He was about a legend around Whitesburg. As far back as I can remember he had his camera taking pictures of everything. he was always smiling. Our sympathy goes out to his wife, Patty, and his sons, Stephen and Michael, and his family. He will surely be missed and remembered by all.
It was good talking to Eva Sergent. I worry about her when I don’t hear from her for awhile. She just stays on the go a lot.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy Fourth of July.
I sure was pleased to have the rain. I’m sure the gardens needed it and so did the flowers and grass.
I’m glad our pastor, Bro. John Conn, got a good report from his check-up with his doctor.
Nadine (Raleigh) Craft, your old friend and neighbor, Aggie Hatton, would love to hear from you.
I hear Hazel Ison is getting some work done on her house. I’m glad for her. I’m sure her sonin law, “Goose”, will do a good job.
I’m looking forward to go to Ashland to visit my son, Astor “Red” Hatton and his family. We will stop on the way and visit with Clyde and stop on the way back.
Hello, Anna Watkins and family in Florida. I’ve been meaning to write and haven’t gotten around to it. I think of you often. Life has been sort of hectic for me lately, but I’ll make it.
The Hatton reunion will be the last weekend in August at Cowan Community Center. I know it’s early, but it will give you time to plan ahead.
May God bless all of you and may the sick all get better. Try to go to church this week if you are able. Smile, God loves you!
