Hello to all you senior citizens. I hope you had a good week and a great Fourth of July.
We at Ermine had a wonderful week. We had two new seniors to come and join us. They are Joyce Vermillion and Gerald Stidham. We are please to have both of you.
Rhuford and Coleene Hart went on vacation last Thursday morning to western Kentucky. They’ll be gone five or six days.
I found a note at my seat saying Ralph Hall has been found. He was found in Sunday School and church at First Baptist Church in Whitesburg. Glad we know where you were, Ralph. Come on back.
Friday, we had our Fourth of July party. We had a house full. I didn’t get the count of how many. We had a lot of visitors, Eddie Meade and Paul Miles and others. I don’t know their names.
Ana Morris sang some beautiful songs for us. She is one of our summer workers. After the blessing was said, everyone turned toward the flag and said the Pledge of Allegiance.
We had all kinds of good food. After eating dinner, we gave away lots of nice gifts. Whitesburg Florist gave us a beautiful flower arrangement won by James Hall. Barbara was sure tickled too. She was hoping one of them would win. Messenger Florist gave us a beautiful door wreath won by Debbie Miranda. Hometown Florist also gave a beautiful red, white and blue arrangement won by S.T. Wright. Food World donated watermelon, and Community Trust a beautiful cake decorated in red, white and blue. (It was good, too.) We gave away diff erent items also.
We were glad Jim Caudill came to our party. He won a gift. Come back, Mr. Caudill.
Joe Walker was with us Wednesday and Thursday. Sorry, Joe, you didn’t win anything. Maybe next time. (I didn’t win and I pulled the tickets out, too. Oh! well, there’ll be another day.)
We’re going to the flea market today (Wednesday), so none of you seniors bring any fleas back with you. Later this month we’re going to Fishpond Lake on a picnic as our last one was canceled because we went to Colson for the Fourth of July celebration. They had it a week early.
We’ll be planning other things to do and places to go. So come on in, you senior citizens, and join in the fun and be one of us. We’re just one big, happy family. So long for now.
God bless until next time.
