Engle family reunion coming up

Northeast Ohio

Howdy y’all, it’s me again. Hope everyone had a good week and do hope everyone is well. This is a really bad time for allergies especially from maple, oak and mulberry trees. It’s really cool here. We had rain last night and looks like we will be having cool weather the rest of the week.

To all mothers: I hope Mother’s Day was a special one for you. To all who still have their mothers, don’t forget to let them know you love them. How I would love to be able to call my mom and give her my love.

Hello, Sharon, I really enjoyed our phone visit. Thank you so much for calling, so sweet of you. I do hope you and your family are doing well.

Red and I went to Pleasant View Church at Litchfield. It was their sacrament meeting. You should have heard the beautiful songs they sang. All in all, a good meeting. I saw and talked with Alex Collier (Millstone) and Christine Meade, Jettie’s cousin. Course I saw and talked to lots of others too, including Rosa (Profitt) Meade (Millstone). All these are downhome folk.

Two weeks from now, we should be getting close to our motel in Virginia, getting anxious to see the beautiful mountains. I’m sure the view will look like a masterpiece, painted by the greatest. No mere mortal could produce a painting as precious and colorful as this.

Valerie, Catharine and I had a great lunch. Our handsome son, brother and grandson had a few days off from his over-the-road truck driving job and spent time here in Lorain. He took us to lunch to celebrate our birthdays, all in April. Catharine’s is the 15th, mine the 16th and Valerie’s the 17th. Thank you, David, love you.

I may go to Amish Country with Richard and Georgia and Chester and Jettie and may find some good dried apples. I wish I could find some molasses but guess I will have to wait till we go “down home”.

I got a call that they are coming to put a new back wall in our garage.

Our great-grandson, Dakota, had a birthday. He’s in Alabama visiting his dad and grandmother. I don’t know when he’ll be home.

Red got a call from his niece, Carleta (Engle) Adams. She’s really good about calling to check up on us. He called his sister, Nina, and sister-in-law, Goldie, while we were out to lunch. David asked him to go along but he “don git aroun much inny more”. About the only places he goes are to church, the doctor, the drugstore and sometimes grocery shopping. There’s a drugstore and market just a short drive from us.

You should see Red’s mustard patch. We could maybe pick a mess before our trip, if not then I’m sure we can pick plenty when we get back. Just hope we have enough to freeze some; we still have three packs left.

I just talked to Johnell. Jeanie tried to call Ron on his cell but got no response. Johnell said he was on his way home from delivering a camper in Canada. She also tried to call Henry and Anna Lea. Maybe later. Johnell said she and Ron were both well. He has tomato plants blooming; he raises two crops each summer. Jeannie had been for dialysis and said everything is going well, the worst part is being so cold after. Some friends of theirs, Hilton and Roberta Vance, took them out for supper for a late anniversary celebration.

Howdy to Edward Baker and Delmar Sergent. Hope you are both well and hope to see you soon.

For the last time, I want to remind everyone about the Engle picnic which will be Sunday, May 25, at the Flat Gap Senior Citizens Center in Flat Gap, Va. Looking for a record crowd. See you there.

Catharine just came in so I’d better finish up. So have a good week, stay well, and be happy.

Love, prayers and peace to all.
