Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well. I’m sure my news will be short this week. The paper will be coming out early because of the holiday.

My son Bill Hatton and I went to the Pine Mountain Grill and they sat us next to a whole bunch of Howards, Imogene (Howard) Adkins and her son Jim Adkins and wife Ida, Cecil Howard of Jenkins, and Allen Howard of Lexington.

We were so glad to see them so of course lunch lasted a long time. We hadn’t seen them in a long time, especially Allen.

I invited them to our Christmas party at Cowan Community Center on Dec. 21. They promised to try. I hope they make it.

We had our church’s children’s play on Wednesday night and it was wonderful! The children were so beautiful, and I think every child in our church was in it. We were so proud of them and those who helped them, especially Gretta Fields, Judah Niece, Erica Howard and all the rest of the mothers of all the children.

Bro. Jonathan Fields, I’m sorry I called you Jonathan Adams, who is my nephew. I knew better, I guess I was having a senior moment. I have quite a few of them. Jonathan Fields is one of our preachers, a good one!

Sandra (Cook) Hatton is having her open house of Longaberger till the end of December. Due to her recent surgery, she won’t be able to deliver. Come in and find some good bargains, and you can buy on the spot. She has some really good bargains, and it’s been going real well.

Betty and Burtis Tyree had an early Christmas last week with their children. They really enjoyed it, especially their great-grandson, Grayson Honeycutt. It was his first Christmas.

Late happy birthday to Kevin Eldridge on Dec. 16, he lives up the road from me, and to Ruth Dollarhide on Dec. 17. She has been a good friend of mine for many years and we have been in church all these years

I want my neighbors, Robin and Lovell Jr. Sexton, to know how much I’m enjoying all their beautiful Christmas decorations. I have a great view of it all, straight across the road from me.

I really enjoyed the article about the late Emma Lou Engle, who wrote for The Eagle until the end. I miss it now. I only met her one time. I was really impressed with her and we kept in touch.

It was good seeing Tom Wright at Pine Mountain Grill on Friday. I still give him a hard time for stopping me when he was a state policeman. It was my first time, a long, long time ago.

His brother, the late Coy Wright, was one of my husband Clyde Hatton’s best friends and hunting buddies.

I’ll write about our Christmas party next week. Pray for all of our people who are sick.

May God bless you, and try to be in church somewhere next week.
