Howdy friends, neighbors and anyone else who may be reading this. Hope this will find everyone in good health and not ailing like this sick puppy. Oops, I meant to say old dog.
I really have been sick, and some days I can hardly function and some not so bad. Am still getting some beautiful cards, phone calls and letters and so many who say they are praying for Red and me both, which we both appreciate very much.
Red is considered legally blind now. He wants to help with everything but with his eyesight he’s sometimes more in the way so all I can say is, “Thank you.”
Meagan is still with us, but now she has a real job. She will be working as a waitress at Denny’s Restaurant. She’s now in training and I think she said her shift would be ten to five, so she and I both can have our morning naps at the same time.
Then there’s Catharine. I really don’t know how we could get along without her. She makes sure we have good meals. I just cannot stand long enough to cook and Red can’t see, but some mornings we have cereal so maybe one might say those mornings we ‘cook’, as in pouring some cereal in a bowl, add milk and sweeten.
His favorite is Corn Flakes and mine Honey Nut Cheerios.
To our angel in Virginia, we both want to say a big, “thank you” for everything.
Several of my family have visited us. I may have mentioned some before, like Jeanie from Louisville; niece Christy from Indiana; Ronald Buford and Johnell from Huntsville, Ala.; and Jettie from North Ridgeville. She doesn’t drive so Richard and Georgia brought her over, and my brother Henry Warren from Murray just left yesterday. Said he would be back later. I really appreciate their visits.
Georgia came by and did my hair. Rick just left and Joyce will be coming by soon.
From what everyone says, we’ve been having some 80 and plus degree weather and the trees, or at least some, are beginning to show their spring green colors. I do believe everyone in the neighborhood and around is mowing lawns.
One of our neighbors mowed ours yesterday, front and back. We surely do have good neighbors, a supportive family, friends, and church family.
Just want to remind everyone about the Engle/ Sergent picnic on Sunday, August 18, at Hill Top Park in Elyria from 12 till 4:45 p.m. Please come join us. We are a very friendly group.
There will be plenty of food, lots of gabbing and there’s usually some picking and playing of country and gospel music. If you play an instrument, bring it with you and if you can sing, bring your voice. See you there?
Catharine just called, she’s on her way, and so I’ve got to finish this.
Till next time, love and prayers to all. Almost forgot, the Letcher County picnic will be the first Saturday after Labor Day at Mill Hollow Park in Vermilion, Ohio, starting at noon.
