Whitesburg KY

Engles head for Letcher County

Northeast Ohio

What a beautiful day here in Lorain. The sun is shining and it’s getting warmer and warmer. Just might hit 80 degrees, high 70s anyway. Getting to be my kind of weather.

I’m having to get this written a day early. Come around four o’clock in the morning and Valerie, Red and I will hit the road heading for them there hills of Letcher County. Been a year since our last trip down, we just don’t get around much anymore.

Ronald Buford called and Richard and Georgia stopped by. Both families seemed to be doing well. From what Ron was telling me, his garden is really flourishing. And all we have growing is mustard greens. We will have a cooking by the time we get back from our trip. We did plant four rows of beans (white half runners) and Red got his ‘mater plants. He was debating whether or not to set them out now or later. I think he decided to take a chance on now. Just hope the frost doesn’t get them while we are gone.

I had a nice chat with cousin Denver Profitt in Michigan. We sort of catch up on what’s going on with the families and we always or at least most always discuss our ancestors.

I want to send a big howdy, love and prayers to Johnnie and Audrey Bentley in Michigan. Hope you are both well and hope to see you at one of the nearby churches real soon.

I had planned to get a letter off to Dorothy Potter in South Carolina but even better, will meet her at the Pine Mountain Grill on Saturday morning. She called and said she would be there. I’m really looking forward to meeting her. Don’t know if Rose Ballard will make it down but I’m going to be on the lookout for her.

Thank you, Rose, for the birthday wishes and the really nice things you said. Better watch what you say. I just may start believing every word and end up with a swelled head.

Billy Wayne and Redia are supposed to stop by this afternoon. I guess they will come by and take care of Gypsy (our cat) while we are away. Catharine usually does but with her work schedule it would make it hard for her. Bill and Redia just came by and left with instructions, as if Redia needs them; they have two cats of their own.

I guess I’ll call it quits for now, hope to have lots and lots of news next week. And for everyone who has plans for re-unions, picnics or whatever one might have planned, I wish for you a warm sunny day. Stay well, be happy. With love, peace and prayers to all.
