Hello everyone, hope things are going well for all of you. I’ll tell you what, it’s the coldest weather I have seen in a long time! I told a friend at the Veterans Center the other day I thought I would crawl in a hole and pull it in after me. She said her mother used to say that. I guess I won’t say that anymore if it’s gonna tell my age.

I enjoyed getting a nice letter from Emilie (Sexton) Schmidt. I knew who you were when you mentioned your parents, Ezra and Arlie Sexton. I loved your mother, she was a sweet person, and I knew your sister, Hilda, who was married to the late James “Jim” Adams. I didn’t know about their children or grandchildren.

Irene just sent me an obituary of Jim Adams in a Christmas card. I hadn’t heard about his death, so I put the obituary in the paper so everyone here would know about it. The obituary didn’t have any information on it. They had two sons, James and wife Sherry and Stephen and wife Rachel, and three grandchildren, James, Rachel, and Carter, Stephen and Sara’s children.

It’s hard to think of him as a grandfather. I’d known him all his life. I lost track of him when he moved away. The family were close friends of mine.

I’m glad you enjoy The

Eagle and the pictures I put in every week. Thanks for saying it is a good looking family. I think so too!

My sympathy goes out to Hilda and all the family and to the family of Doris Williams. We’ve had a lot of deaths here and also lots of sickness.

There hasn’t been any school here for the past three days and I’m guessing the kids are getting bored by now. I know my boys were.

We enjoyed our usual dinner last Wednesday. Present were sons Rob and Billy and Angie (Hatton) Mullins and her two sweet kids, Sam and Ellie, and also Joe Hatton and his pretty girlfriend, Hannah, and my sister, Louise Shepherd, joined us. I think the whole Howard family was there, Jenetta, Keith Howard and all his family, Doris Hogg, and the grandchildren.

I have two sisters getting ready for surgery in a few days, Kathleen Brock and Judy Greene. Remember them when you pray.

I think about all the homeless people without power in this cold weather — and even the animals. I feed the birds and lots of stray cats and leave buildings open for them to sleep in. I love animals!

I enjoyed talking to my cousin, Dorothy Miles. She’s enjoying retirement. She said we had something else in common, she also got bitten by her cat. We both survived it. I thought mine was funny. I’m keeping my cat!

It has been so cold I have stayed in and have not got much to write about. Am I rambling on? Sure I am, so I’ll meet you again next week.

Stay in, keep warm, and may God bless you. I hope everyone can be in church on Sunday.
