The week of sunny weather we are having for the first week of May is a welcome change from the rainiest April on record.
We had a small get-together last Wednesday to help Coreen Pridemore celebrate her 80th birthday. We thank Rodney and Geraldine Ison, Tommy Harris Smith, Mary Jo Blair, Lee and Wilma Pridemore, Gillis and Marie Reedy, Dock Adams and Arnetta Mae Slone for coming out to be with us. And she thanks everyone for the happy birthday wishes and gifts.
Others who recently celebrated birthdays were Irene Jent, Reva Adams, Verna Collins and Katrina Back. Hope all had a good day.
Marie Reedy hasn’t been feeling well and spent a couple days in the hospital, but is home now hopefully better.
Verlon Breeding also hasn’t been feeling well and his family and friends are concerned about him.
When we stopped by Letcher Manor Nursing Home to visit, Enis Blair had brought Mary and Astor Blair a chicken dinner and they really enjoyed it. We had a good visit with them and checked on Mable Jo Buttrey, Viola Caudill, Bill Brown and others.
Later we dropped by Blair Branch and visited Evangene and Arizona Adams and Violet and Ardelia were also there.
Bob and I attended the Poor Fork Church at Cumberland on Saturday evening. It was the ordination for Eddie Creech to become a minister and the service was very nice. Lots of his family and church family attended.
Bob attended the 50th anniversary celebration for Bennett and Carol Breeding and when returning home he was loaded with enough dinner for me. Thanks for the dinner, Kim, and congratulations to them on their anniversary.
Sunday morning, we attended the Mount Olivet Church at Blackey. It was their Union meeting and not only were they blessed with a good service, but also a huge crowd and delicious dinner afterward.
I enjoyed sitting with Lois and Lovell Blair, Richard Blair and Neil Honeycutt on the back row. We were pleased to see Burnett and Geraldine Caudill come in and Bill and Joyce Adams were also able to attend.
Sorry to hear that Bob’s uncle, Luther Adams in Morehead, was knocked down by a car backing up in a parking lot. Nothing broke thankfully, but bruised and scraped up a little. Hang in there, Luther, and we’re glad you weren’t hurt any worse.
On May 12, the Letcher Area Homemakers will have a yard sale at the Jeremiah Missionary Baptist Church kitchen. It was be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine. Come out and look for bargains!
This coming weekend is the Old Doty Church memorial meeting. On Sunday, names of deceased members will be read off. This is one of the oldest churches around and so many have been members throughout the years.
On Saturday, the 9th, there will be an antiques and homemade sale at Calvary College gymnasium. It is hosted by Gwen’s Country Attic and many vendors will be set up. N&S Farms will be set up selling their goat milk soaps and lotion too. Good luck to all.
A plant and flower sale will also be going on at the Blackey Community Center that day. Brad Collie will have a truckload of pretty flowers for Mother’s Day gifts.
Out of time. Have a good week. Sorry if I left anything out, just remind me and I’ll get it in next week.
