I received a call from Ivol (Wells) Cheatham of Stanford, formerly of Kingscreek. She was really a pleasant lady to talk to. She is 80 years young and she knew lots of the same people that I knew and some of them are relatives. I believe she said she was the niece of the late Polly (Akemon) Fields and Steve Fields. She knows Oma Hatton, Eugene and Nezalene Day from Seymour, Ind., and many more. I kept her number so I can call her again. We talked about some of the old preachers such as Old Dave Maggard, Riley Fouts, Buddy Wilson, and some others. She said to keep her family in our prayers.
All is doing well on Cowan this week. Praise the Lord because it has really been a sad community of late, losing six people in the last month. Death knows no age and we never know who will be next. The main thing is to be ready when our number rolls around. Hopefully not any more for awhile.
I forgot to mention friends of my husband that worked with him at Delta Faucet in Greensburg, Ind., come to Carr Creek Lake every year to camp. They came down and called us and we met them at the lake to catch up on everything. They are Melinda and John Steggamollor. She has relatives in Owsley County and his grandmother used to live at Jeff . It was good to see them.
After my husband sees or talks to someone that used to work at Delta, he works really hard in his sleep putting Delta back together. I wish he got paid for all the hard work. Ha, ha! There are only one or two departments left after being in business over 50 years. It is sad to work somewhere that long and then it goes out of business. About that time the new Honda plant came to town and some went to work there. Some people have not found jobs yet. Keep them in your prayers.
Some of the birthdays this month: Christy Polly, Oct. 6; Pat King, Oct. 17; and Ann Adams, Oct. 21. Love all you ladies and wish you a very happy day. Also, Kim Fields Hoskins, Oct. 13, and Alfredo Peters, Oct. 31, of Greensburg, Ind.
I reported in my column that Charles Hammonds’s right arm was broken in an accident. I wanted to make a correction. He went to a surgeon in Indy and found out that it is his right wrist and all five bones are broken. He is in the process of having a steel plate put in to fuse his wrist together. They are doing therapy on his fingers, try to save the use of them. They said he would have to learn to write all over again and that he has total disability in his arm. Keep him in your prayers as well as Audrey.
We went to Cumberland on Saturday to the Swap Meetin’. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed it. Irene, Eugene Day, Chris Adams, Emma Adams and Paige Brown were there. It was the first time my husband had been there. We will try to go again next year. We drove through the country at Eolia and went across to Pound, Va., that way. We went past Bad Branch Falls. I would like to go back and do some hiking if my legs will hold out. We love sightseeing and see so many beautiful places, and it doesn’t take much money, just gas money, but we love it!
Well, gotta go. May God bless all of you. Attend the church of your choice.
