It has been a rainy month so far. We moved here the Sunday before Thanksgiving and there haven’t been that many dry days since we arrived. It is better than snow but I would like one big snow to show it’s winter. I doubt that I would get out but seeing a snowman would be nice.
One of best parts of living in Letcher County is having family around. You never know when you are going to see someone you haven’t seen in a long time. On Thursday, I saw Tami Campbell, a cousin I hadn’t seen in five years. She looked great and it felt good seeing her.
My sister, Susan Ware, and cousin, Laura Harris, came in for the weekend. Laura came in to visit her parents, Bob and Ramonda Caudill of Little Cowan. It was a great weekend with lots of laughter. Another cousin, Doris Ison, came over on Saturday evening and we had a fun time talking and laughing. Family is the greatest thing!
The power went out for a short time on Thursday and once again I was sitting in my recliner when it went out. My recliner is electric and I’m always stuck in the chair when this happens. Luckily Mike was around to help me out. I’m sure it’s not a pretty sight seeing me climb out of that chair.

Having the cable go out doesn’t bother me but not having Internet is rough. I’m hoping it’s back on in time for this column to get sent in.
All of the mudslides and flooding have made traveling rough. Be careful out there.
This week’s social media quote: I am in charge of how I feel and today I am choosing happiness.
Have a good week.
