Engles attend memorial meeting

Northeast Ohio

A big country “howdy” tew all yew good hill country folk. Hoping y’all air havin a sunny day. I’m sure a lot of family gatherings and picnics took place Labor Day weekend. Hope everyone had a cloudless day with no rain.

We’ll be having a weekend of eating, talking and doing whatever our company wants. They may want to do a bit of shopping and I’m all for that.

I baked a stack cake and was going to make a potato salad but have put that off until in the morning. Gonna bake a ham and cook beans of some kind. I like to cook ahead as much as I can. I don’t want to spend all my time in the kitchen; I might miss something.

A big hello and get well wishes to good friend, Gaynell Field’s, sister, Belva. I do hope everything goes well with you. Love and prayers are coming your way.

I also want to send get well wishes to Gladys Smith, North Carolina columnist. She called me and I really did enjoy our visit. I found out she is from Partridge near Eolia where Red grew up. She came up with an idea which is super. She thinks it would be fun for all us who write for The Mountain Eagle to get together for a gab fest. I myself think it would be a special treat. Can’t you just imagine a group of Southerners all talking at once? Mind boggling! Gladys, I really do hope and pray you are feeling much better.

I got my quilt hemmed and did quite a bit on one downstairs while doing laundry. Gotta bring another one upstairs but I think I’ll wait till after our company has come and gone.

Happy September birthdays to the following: Willie Creighton Adams in Eolia on the 2nd; Lauren Sergent in Lorain on the 4th; Nina Hobbs in Jenkins and Chalmer Engle in Whitesburg, both on the 21st; Mae Sowards in Pound, Va., on the 23rd; and Georgia Starry in Alexandria, Va., on the 26th.

Anniversary congratulations to Charles and Delores, who celebrated on the 2nd. Wishing the best for all and may happiness be yours always.

Red and I went to Little Edna Church. It was their memorial meeting. There was a packed house with lots of good singing and all in all a good meeting. Sadly, the moderator, Hobart Justice, and his wife, Sarah, were absent. Hobart had gotten sick during church the day before. I sure hope he gets feeling better soon. They are a lovely couple in their late 80s.

Red’s garden is slowly going the way of all gardens. He still has a couple rows of beans and tomatoes are still ripening. His late mustard patch is growing well.

Hello to Ed and Lourene Watts and Gomer Goins in Garden City, Mich. Hope all are well and would love to see you at the Letcher County picnic at Mill Hallow Park in Vermilion, Ohio, on Sept. 15 from 1 to 6 p.m. at shelter number one.

Well, Catharine should be by soon on her way home from work. She gets off at 8 p.m. and it’s now 8:30. She’s going to pick this up and get it on the way for me. Bless her!

Y’all have a wonderful time with family and friends and don’t eat too many hot dogs and watermelon, two of my many favorite foods.

Love and prayers to each and every one. Peace.
