Hello everyone, hope things are going good for all of you.
I think all my family are all back from their vacations and settling back into the real world. I never left, so I’m still here. I was invited to go, but I’d rather be at home.
My cousin Dorthy Miles is having some health problems and needs prayer. I had a real nice visit with her and her husband Glen a few days ago.
I always love going to their home and seeing all the things they have done. They are both talented. Their home is beautiful. They have done most of the work themselves.
My son Billy and his wife Sandra and I went to Pine Mountain Grill for breakfast last Thursday. It was so good seeing Penny and Dan Combs there. They looked so good! I love talking with them.
I love meeting friends. If I didn’t, I probably wouldn’t bother to go out.
Vickie (Hatton) Underwood of Ohio, I was so glad to get your nice, long letter and to get your picture. I’m so glad you and your family have done so well. Your two children both have great jobs, and you have one grandchild and they live close to you.
I can’t believe you are old enough to be starting your 30th year at Wyandot Memorial Hospital in Ohio. I’ve known you all your life, and your mom and dad.
I really look forward to seeing you. Sounds like you had a great 40th anniversary. I’m sure you enjoyed your friends who were also celebrating their anniversary for two weeks in Hawaii, with you. You and your husband look so happy in the picture.
I haven’t heard from Elzie Ray Hatton in a long time either. He always kept in touch with me. I sure hope he makes it to our Hatton reunion this year. It’s supposed to be the last Saturday in August.
I’ll call Elzie Ray and see how he is doing. He and his wife Irene are hard workers.
I’m glad Hazel Hart’s son, Gene Caudill, is doing better. Hazel hasn’t been doing real well either.
Our church Homecoming starts this Sunday with Bro. Wendell Pittman of Missouri. He’s been coming for 12 years. We all love him and his wife. Our pastor, Bro. John Conn, and all the congregation hope you come be with us.
Our sympathy goes out to the families of Richard Adams, Margaret Collier and Chalmer Watkins Jr., whose father, the late Chalmer Watkins Sr., was my neighbor many years ago at Marlowe.
My brother Bobby Ray Howard had a birthday party with friends and family. I’m sure it went well and the food had to be good. He has very good cooks in his family.
I didn’t get to go. My son Larry and wife Linda and Wendy and Kevin Day and their son Larry Kevin had dinner and invited me. We had lots of good food and enjoyed it.
They are so good to me. They always include me and I sure appreciate it.
I guess lots of folks watched the fireworks. I heard it was good. I thought it would be raining, and it may have been, I haven’t heard.
I enjoyed talking to R.C. Day. He was concerned about Dorthy Miles.
I sure hope Emma Lou Engle is doing better. I always look to see if her news is in and it was. Keep her in your prayers. She is a sweet lady.
We’ve sure been getting a lot of rain. It’s been good for the gardens, and also my two tomato plants. They are as tall as I am, but they are sort of skinny. I have hope for them.
I’m sure all the children are enjoying being out school. I hear a lot of fun going on up at my grandchildren’s home. I love to see them having fun in their pool with their friends.
I enjoyed talking to my friend Anna Watkins in Florida. I sure loved living next door to her before she moved away. But the move was good for her. We keep in touch.
May God bless all of you and the sick get better. Try to be in church somewhere this week.
