Engles plan visit to hills of Kentucky

Northeast Ohio

A big howdo to all, and hope everyone had a most wondrous week. Wasn’t too bad around here. Red only had one fall. We went to Pleasant View Church at Litchfield, Ohio Sunday. It was their sacrament time but we didn’t stay, Red needed to eat; he’s diabetic and can’t go too long between meals. Our good friend, Milford Clark, called and he said they didn’t get out till four o’clock or after. This weekend is church time at Little Pilgrim Home in Ruggles, Ohio. We may not get to go as Red hasn’t been feeling any too well lately.

Guess what? We’ll be leaving sometime in the wee hours of the morning heading for the hills of Kentucky. Valerie will be with us, in fact we’ll take her van. She has a pretty bad leg and it’s hard for her to get in and out of a car. We’ll be having breakfast at Pine Mountain Grill, Friday and Saturday mornings, so if you are in the vicinity be sure to stop by and say howdy. I made our reservations at Travelers Motel in Pound, Va., we stay there so much that when I call they know who it is.

Valerie picked up her quilt and seemed to be pleased with the results. It was a king size, which I didn’t realize until I started working on it. Now I can concentrate on quilting some I have put together.

Bill and Redia stopped by for a short visit. There was beautiful sunshine when they came in but they left in rain.

I would like to invite any and all relatives and friends of the late Troy and Mattie (Sturgill) Engle to the reunion and picnic of Engles and Sturgills on Sunday, May 24, at the Flat Gap Senior Citizens building at Flat Gap, Va. Hoping to see a huge crowd and I’m sure there will be enough food and then some to feed everyone.

Speaking of picnics, don’t forget the Engle- Sergent one on Sunday, August 16, at Hill Top Park in Elyria, Ohio, noon till dark. See you there?

Jeanie called and didn’t sound as perky as at other times. I can always tell when either she or Sarah Belle speaks, whether they are feelin’ poorly or upbeat. Just call me Old Mother Hen. I talked to Georgia and she was also feelin a mite poorly. She said Richard complained of being tired. He has to be almost bedfast before he will admit he’s not feeling up to par.

I had some unexpected company. My niece, Debbie (Sergent) Resor, stopped by with Cassie, Ben and Kristin, bringing me a late birthday gift, two movies, “Miracle In The Woods” and “Christy, A Change of Seasons”, also a beautiful card. I got a lovely Mother’s Day card from Bill and Redia. They could hand deliver and save a stamp.

Believe it or not, I mailed out 10 letters in a little over a week. Still have more than that I want to write. I had a late morning appointment today, else I would have mailed more.

Did anyone get to go barefoot the first day of May? That’s when Mom let us shed our shoes and, believe you me, we could hardly wait. Ain’t no way one could have gone barefoot around here. Maybe by the middle of June of the first of July.

Getting nigh onto eight o’clock and if Catharine gets off work at her usual time, she will come a’knocking at the door most anytime. Sometimes she will close for someone who needs it or wants to go home early.

I really must end this for now but look for me, same time, same place, next week. Hoping to see you in them thar hills, come Memorial weekend. In the meantime, enjoy the beautiful spring weather, something I plan to do. Love, prayers and peace to all.
