Last week was Mountain Heritage week and a few of us from the Ermine Center went on Wednesday to Whitesburg Day. I drove my car and took some of the ladies, as our site manager Debbie Slone was off having tests done, and we had no one to take us and stay with us. But we had a great day anyway.
Rhuford and Coleen Hart were there working for AARP, and Judith Vermillion was selling her arts and craft items. She also had some good homemade peanut butter fudge. If you didn’t get any, you missed out. She still has some more, if anyone wants to buy some. Just contact her at our center.
Ralph Hall has been turned loose, as I saw him on the street and he said he’d be back to see us. Don’t wait too long, Ralph, or we’ll forget what you look like.
Vina Lucas and Evelyn Caudill have had their daughters home for a few days, and they haven’t been quilting. We missed you gals.
Thursday we had a birthday blast for Ruby Caudill; she was 97 years young. Debbie Ann Adams fixed her a chocolate birthday cake with chocolate icing (my favorite). Jim Craft got some birthday candles and put 97 of them on the cake.
Ruby’s daughter, Deb, got the numbers ’97’ and Ruby blew those two out. We sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to her and she received some very nice gifts. I hope to see your birthday cake with 110 candles on it, Ruby.
She comes every day to the center with her friend, Lydia Hall, unless Oven Fork sneaks her over there on their potluck day. But that’s OK, we’ll share her with them a little bit as she used to live over there.
Debbie, we sure hope all of our tests turn out good, and we’ve missed you the last three days.
Today is the last day of September, so we’re looking to see what we can get into in October. Halloween is one, so all of you guys and gals at Ermine start getting your false faces and your costumes ready as time is passing fast and Halloween is just around the corner.
See you all there. God bless until next time.
