Easter lilies are beginning to bloom


I am sure glad we didn’t get the snow that was predicted for us this past weekend. It is always pretty when we have a big snow, but it makes it difficult for traveling and getting around. The early daffodils, or as the old timers called them, Easter lilies, are blooming and that is a good sign that warm weather will be here soon.

We hope Pressie Adams is doing better after her recent hospital stay. She does pretty well most of the time and her family takes good care of her.

It’s good to hear that Owen Amburgey is feeling better and is able to get out and about again. He and Emma had dinner at their daughter, Kim’s, house recently, and I’m sure they were happy to finally get out of the house and visit them.

I learned I had made a mistake in last week’s column but the paper had gone to the printer before I could correct it. The Razor’s Edge salon, located in the former Roger Breeding’s Barber Shop, is operated by Hazel Kilburn, not Autumn Campbell. Autumn was only working there. I sometimes get ahead of myself and I’m very sorry for any confusion I caused, and wish the shop much success.

Tommy Harris Smith, Mary Jo Blair and Lillie Moss Hale have returned to Jeremiah after spending a couple of months in Florida. The weather was cold there this trip, but they said it still wasn’t as cold as our weather. Their sister, Anna Lou Blair, and her husband, Kenneth, of Lexington, also have been in Florida, as well as their sister-in-law, Rose Smith, of Michigan and two of her daughters.

The 1968 Letcher High School class is planning a class reunion sometime in early June. Anyone who graduated with that class and would like to help in finding classmates or help planning the reunion can call Colletta Sexton Bates at 633-7049 or Connie Adams Blair at 633-0431.

Virgil Ray Adams spent a few days in the hospital recently, but is back at Letcher Manor now. His family are very concerned about him and visit him often. We hope he is feeling better by the time the paper comes out.

Our sympathy goes out to the family of Bemus Pratt, who died recently.

A surprise birthday party was held Saturday at the Stuart Robinson Dining Hall for George M. Adams Jr. His family had done well at keeping it a secret, and it was a real surprise for Junior. A large crowd of family and friends were present to wish Junior a happy 80th birthday. As well as being the parents of seven children, Junior and Alice are the grandparents of 17 grandchildren and 21 greatgrandchildren.

Three of Junior’s sisters, Hazel Adams, Susie Raglin and Opal Banks, along with a brother, Bill Adams, were able to be with their brother.

“Happy Birthday” was also sung to Susie Raglin, who was also celebrating her birthday on Saturday.

Bill, Junior and Hazel Adams stopped by last week to visit their sister, Opal Banks.

I am going to take some time off from having my column and if anyone else would like to do the Jeremiah column, it would be fine with me.
