Hello everyone! I hope everyone is well.
My husband and I went to Indiana for a few days so I was unable to get an article in last week. The weather and scenery were beautiful, and visiting with our son and family was great.
I wish that we had felt a little better. We have been fighting cold/flu for the last two weeks.
We went to Metamora for Canal Days and did some walking, but it got too hot so we headed back to Greensburg.
We visited Charles and Audrey Hammonds in North Vernon, Ind. Audrey’s great-grandson, Tre Shaun Robinson, was one year old on Saturday, Oct. 8.
We also visited with my friends, Diana and John Goedecker, in Charlestown, Ind.
We had supper on Friday night with Amber, Ashley and her friend Casey at the Steakhouse, then Saturday night at Golden Corral in Columbus, Ind., with Chad, Amber and Ashley.
We had a good time but were so glad to be home.
I wanted to tell Shelby Bockover that her house is beautiful. Lots of people are still remodeling after the hail damage and the tornado that happened in May. There’s still lots of work to be done.
I didn’t get to see Bill and Agnes Maggard and their daughter, Anna. They have been to Alabama to see their son, Archie, and family. They called and said they’d had a good trip.
Agnes said that they received a real nice letter from Hazel Rayburn and Becky Collins, thanking them for their donation for the upkeep of the Obie Fields Cemetery, and to tell Becky how much they appreciate it. I know it takes a lot of work and donations are appreciated.
Sorry to hear that Bro. Bug Yonts’s mother from Neon had died. Our sym- pathy goes out to all of the family, and also to the family of the miner, Ricky Coots, who lost his young life. So sad for someone that young. Big Cowan
A person never knows if they will return home. Thank God for keeping us safe on the highway and for keeping all my family and friends safe.
Late happy birth- day wishes to Kim Fields Hoskins, Oct. 13. She turned 36. We all love you, Kim. She is the youngest daughter of Archie and Margaret Fields of Cowan, and Lucille Collins of Newport, Ind. Kim is the wife of Roger Hoskins of Manchester, and the mother of Dasia Rae Fields.
Happy birthday to Pat King, Oct. 17, and to Cheyenne ‘Ann’ Adams, Oct. 21, and Kendall Boggs will be 66 on Oct. 26. Happy birthday to him, also.
I rene Day went to Whitesburg with James and me. We went to the bank and nursing home and saw Barbara Ann Boggs and Madge Hatton. We had a good visit, especially with Madge. Barbara wasn’t very talkative that day.
Then we went to the Dollar Store, then back home. By that time she was tired and ready to come home. She also picked up her new glasses.
Eugene Day’s brother, Zane, and his wife were here last week to visit Eugene, Irene, Elmo and other relatives. He and his wife are traveling around to see his brothers and sisters. I’m sure they will have lots of catching up to do, and will enjoy their visit. They were going to see Louise Day Sturgill in Ohio; Georgette Day Simms in Danville; Eugene and Elmo Day here on Cowan; and Frankie Day in Indiana. I’m not sure if it’s in that order. He doesn’t get back here often. They are the children of the late Rachel Ann Maggard and Frances Day. He lives in Kansas.
Kathy Miles Sloce had a birthday Oct. 16. Happy birthday, Kathy, and I’m sure that with all your family and friends you had a good time.
So many people are sick with this cold/ flu/ bronchitis or pneumonia. Keep everyone in your prayers.
Congratulations to Jamie Paige Fields and her new husband, David Pack. They were married a few weeks ago in Tennessee.
Also, congratulations to Charles and Gladean Shepherd on their 50th wedding anniversary.
Well, I’ve got to be going until next time. May God bless, have a good week and take care.
