Clayton Shepherd marked his 93rd birthday Nov. 19


A few houses in the area are beginning to look like Christmas. People have been taking advantage of the warm days to start their decorating and soon the shopping will be underway.

Ina Campbell’s family got together at her home on Saturday and spent the day decorating her home. It looked really nice when they turned on the lights that night. Her son Donnie Reed was in and daughter Dalna too.

James Caudill has had surgery in Lexington and is back home now.

Joyce Adams continues to improve from her recent sick spell.

Tommy Harris Smith and Mary Jo Blair have returned from Florida. They spent about a month there and enjoyed the warm weather, planted cabbage and saw a few other Letcher County folks.

A large crowd attended Blair Branch Church on Sunday and also stayed for Brenda Adams’s baptism and for dinner. We were glad Toby and Colleen Breeding were able to attend. During dinner we all sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Clayton Shepherd who turned 93 on Nov. 19. He had many friends and family stopping by his home on the 19th to wish him happy birthday and have cake with him.

Recently Lori Adams, Tashelle Sexton attended a concert in Lexington and stopped in at the Nicholasville Cracker Barrel where they talked with Jessie Banks Scott. She enjoyed seeing folks from home.

Everyone is invited to stop in at Gwen’s Country Attic antique mall for the Christmas open house on Dec. 4, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Refreshments will be served and there will be door prizes.

I hope all have a happy Thanksgiving with lots to eat, family to be with them, and are thankful for all the Lord has blessed them with.
