Cold temperatures bring skiff of snow


We are getting a little skiff of snow along with colder temperatures. Not too bad for this time of year. Not many going or coming this time of year.

Carl Bennett and Marsha enjoyed a nice vacation in Florida and reported a good time. We traveled some after Bert retired, but it was always good to be back home.

I guess many were watching the Arkansas vs. Kentucky basketball game. It was Arkansas 42, UK girls 56, as I started my news.

Several attended church at Little Cowan despite the bad weather. Elder Brad Dutton and his wife and Bradley Jr. came all the way from Prestonsburg. Some of us missed who lived close. We usually don’t have church if the roads are bad.

Some of our members come from the Cumberland area. They also attended. I really thought that church would be canceled.

Bennett and Linda Combs had their children and most of the grandchildren in for Christmas. Several of them went ATV riding and really enjoyed that. Dustin and Jenna Crawford had never been ATV riding, and loved the views.

Belated happy birthday wishes to Kylie Cornett, who celebrated Jan. 2. She is Regina Crawford’s granddaughter.

I just received word that Judy Cook of Ohio is very sick. She is the daughter of the late Elmer and Maxie Cook.

The Pine Mountain Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution enjoyed a luncheon meeting held at the Dairy Queen on Jan. 8. The following members took part in a session on records and reports, led by Regent Shirley Whitaker: Linda Lucas, Rebecca Reynolds, Stella Elam, Marlene Day, Mahala Frazier and Virginia Brown.

We look forward to our Valentine’s sweetheart luncheon to be held at Pine Mountain Grill on Feb. 12 at noon, and urge all members to attend.

Sally Caudill is in charge of arrangements, and asks each member to wear something red to celebrate the occasion.

The county Homemakers’ lesson on flu and protecting your family from it, and other emergencies, was presented by Nanette Banks, county Extension agent of Leslie County. We appreciate the agents for bringing us valuable information such as this, and other interesting topics.

Juanita Caudill of North Carolina spent last week with her mother, Phoebe Fields.

Our winter season is going by fast, and so far no big snows.

When Bert was in World War II, he was stationed near Fort Smith, Ark. Carl Bennett was nearly two years old. The people were really nice and asked me to stay there when they sent him overseas. I wish I had kept in contact with some of my good friends. We did keep in contact for a long time.

We send best wishes out to all the sick and shut-ins.
