Hello everyone! What a fun week this has been.
I got invited by Robert Fleming to come to Hemphill Community Center last Friday night to hear Dawson Creek Band. They were really good.
I love to watch other people dance, and the older people are so good at it and it’s good exercise for them. I wish I could dance. Maybe someone will teach me one day.
My favorite dance they have is the broom dance. I laugh my head off. If you have never been to one, go on a Friday night and you will not be disappointed. They also have cakewalks, good food and clean fun.
I wish the Cowan Community Center would have different groups to come in on a Friday or Saturday night. It only costs $5 and then you get a ticket for a door prize, which consists of two free passes to come back.
I would like to see our community bring back some of the old-fashioned stuff we used to do.
Hope everyone had a safe and fun Memorial weekend. Kind of sad going to the cemetery and seeing more graves.
Lots of families in for the holiday and lots of cookouts, and of course the Indy 500 Race. Hope Helio Castroneves wins again.
Happy anniversary to my uncle and aunt, Isom and Darlene Fields, who will be married 51 years on June 1. Love you guys. They live in Morristown, Tenn.
Happy birthday to Madison who will be 12 years old on June 2. She is a granddaughter of Georgette and Harry Sims, who live in Danville.
Leroy and Joann Fields will celebrate their wedding anniversary on June 3. Congratulations to them.
Audrey and Charles Hammonds came in for a few days from North Vernon, Ind. Was good seeing them.
My beautiful granddaughter Rebecca Fields graduates from high school on June 7 at 9 a.m. I probably will be out panhandling to get money to go. Time I paid my bills I am broke. I know the Lord will provide.
I hate to miss it because her papaw and I were looking forward to going. He will be there in spirit and I hope to be there for both of us.
Please keep all the fallen soldiers and our loved ones that have gone on before us in your prayers.
My husband served in the U.S. Army. He was stationed in Germany during the Viet Nam War. I was still proud of him for serving his country, as well as the other men and women who served.
We are proud of all of you. May God bless all of you and your families.
In memory this week: Nezalene Day died two years ago in Indiana; Chloe Hall died two years ago. She was Melinda “KK” Daniel’s grandma; Amy Ison died four years ago.
Happy birthday to Stoney Lucas on June 8.
Mike is doing pretty well and Melinda “KK” Daniel has been doing well with her chemo treatments. She only had a little nausea. She still looks healthy and has a good appetite. She says she has good days and bad days.
Thanks for your prayers and continue to pray for both of them.
Mike, Melinda and I went to church (King’s Chapel) Sunday morning with a cookout afterward. No Sunday night service.
Back in the day we called it Sunday meeting with dinner on the ground. We would have church at the Old Regular Baptist, then have dinner at the Obie Fields Cemetery. Some great memories.
I got invited to go to a memorial service at the Roy Fields Cemetery on Cowan Mountain. Mike, Melinda and myself dropped in to say hi. We had already eaten at church.
Was good seeing Nancy Caudill Tolle and her husband Steve; Letha Ann Fields; Brenda and Rick Williams and son; Roy Wayne, wife Mavie, daughter Wanda and her daughter Emily and another girl, I did not catch her name; Roy Audie and his wife Pearlie; Jona Fields and Mattie’s daughter, Betty, and a few others that I cannot remember their names, and of course Little Roy. Was good seeing all of them, and sure they had a good get-together.
Well folks, I’ve got to go. Until next time, keep someone in prayer, pray for Sue and Alford Gibson who lost their son last week in a construction accident. My prayers go to them.
Be good to each other and to yourselves. May God bless.
