Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well. I had a great week. I went to Georgetown to visit my son Astor and his wife and spent four days with them and enjoyed every minute.
If you visit them and don’t enjoy it, you have a big problem. You get royal treatment and eat some of the best food! I told Astor I’d have to eat my ugly food when I got home.
I appreciate my son Billy and wife Sandra for taking me to their lake house. Astor met us there and took me to his home.
I hope he’s all rested up from all the talking we did. We love to talk.
Our sympathy goes out to the family of David Combs. I didn’t know him very well, but I knew a lot of his family and liked all of them.
We were so glad to have Jack Stewart at our church. He lives in Pike County and likes to come to our church, and we love having him.
Betty Tyree and Bertus and Robin have really enjoyed having Katy, Robin’s daughter, and her grandson Grayson with them for a few days. He’s Betty and Bertus’s only grandchild. He’s their pride and joy.
My sister Louise Shepherd, her daughter Carol Day, and my sisters Joanne Brown and Judy Greene have all been on a cruise and should be coming home this weekend. I hope it went well. Louise was so sick, but she wanted to go so badly.
Late happy birthday to Lucille Polly on the 27th of August.
I really appreciated the person who put in Speak Your Piece that he or she was pleased to see the pictures of the late Bill and Cindy Howard and their family.
Ruby Jean Howard of Indiana is looking forward to a reunion for all the people who attended the one-room school at Dry Fork. It’s in October and she’s planning on coming. I think her sons Bill and Mike are coming with her.
Ida and Roger Hatton were glad to have their daughter Misty and her family in for a visit. Her husband Joe is in the service and they don’t get to come often.
My son Billy and wife Sandra and I visited the new business in Whitesburg, “Icing on the Cake.” Kendra McIntosh is the owner. The doughnuts were delicious and everything looked delicious.
I’ve been enjoying talking to Sally Profitt. I hadn’t heard from her in a long time. She has been having some health problems. I hope she is feeling better.
Billy, Sandra and I went to the big flea market in Virginia on Saturday. There was a big crowd there and lots and lots of beautiful things.
I didn’t’ see anything I wanted to buy, but I enjoyed looking at it and seeing all the people.
We went to a fish place there and had a great lunch. It was really good. I’d like to go back. We ate outside and it was really pleasant.
I want to say hello to my good friend, Anna Lee Watkins in Florida. She’s been getting The Eagle for many years to keep up with all of us.
Our church is looking forward to having Bro. David Miller of Dayton, Oh., on Oct. 8 through 11, for three nights of service at the Whitco Pentecostal Church, where Bro. John Conn is pastor. Bro. David is a great preacher. He was in this area years ago.
I talked to my son Rob in Owensboro, and Astor in Georgetown. They are doing well.
Astor and his wife had been to visit their families. His granddaughter Taylor Shaffer was in a show at Paramount Studios. She’s a singer. I need to get more details. She has a beautiful voice and she is also beautiful. She really is!
Well, it’s almost church time and I have to get going.
May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week if you are able.
