Just a quick column this week since I don’t seem to know much to write about. I must not have talked to many neighbors and friends.
Election Day has passed, and I hope everyone got out and supported their candidates. It’s always good to see and talk to our Doty election workers and neighbors and friends who are there voting.
Coreen, Bonita and I enjoyed sitting and talking with Randy Combs at the Knott County Dulcimer Festival. His daughter works at the Artisan Center, and while she worked the festival we sat and reminisced about Dad and Mom ( Don and Coreen Pridemore) getting married at Bascom and Lois McIntyre’s home, Randy’s parents, Raymond and Geneva, and other family and friends.
While we (older) people were chatting, Liberty watched the booth.
He comes over and visits at Martha McIntyre’s every now and again.
I was sorry to hear that Frances, Grace and “Mott’s” sister, Hester, was having health problems.
When I first opened my shop I always enjoyed when Hester, Frances, Bucky and Ernestine would come in to visit Bascom and Lois, because they would stop by and visit and shop at my place, too.
Astor Blair is still recuperating from his recent surgery in Pikeville. He is doing better and should be home soon. Hope all goes well and he feels better.
After attending church in Pikeville Sunday, Bob and I stopped by Letcher Manor to visit. “ Buggy” Viola Adams’s family were having her a birthday party. She is always sweet and smiling and happy to see everyone.
Linda Campbell was visiting her mother and also helping Mabel Jo Buttrey down the hall. Mable Jo always wants to know if we’re going to Isom. Her hometown is always on her mind. She was a joy to work with at the Doty voting precinct, and also worked at the Isom one until she was about 90 years old.
Evangene Adams will be leaving Letcher Manor and going home this week. They are building a wheelchair ramp at their home and Arizona will be glad to get him home.
Virgil Caudill is having health problems and appreciates everyone’s prayers. Also, Burnett Caudill has had some blood work and it came back elevated. Hope it’s not too serious.
Lena Dixon’s daughter, Gwen, has been having some tests run.
I’m glad Francine Caudill is back home on Sycamore Loop after her recent hospital stay. Donna Frazier keeps us updated on her when we stop by Lyle’s room to visit at Letcher Manor. Lyle is doing better lately.
I hope everyone remembered our veterans on Veterans Day, and if you have a loved one who served our country I appreciate their service.
