Full moon is big, bright, beautiful


Hello everyone – The weekend weather made one think spring is here. I want to start planting flowers and hopefully I can do that soon. The Sunday night full moon was beautiful as it was big and bright. I sat outside with Mike and John for a little while just looking at the moon.

I left two names off of my birthday list. Happy birthday to Tim Yonts on March 2. Happy birthday to Harley Phillips on March 11.

Mike and I got home from Florida on Thursday afternoon. We had a wonderful time visiting our friends, Cherie and Gerry Freisthler. Our trip home was good but I did get mixed up with the directions, and we went south on the interstate instead of north. We only went about 30 miles total out of the way. It’s always good to be back home no matter how long it takes.

Michael Campbell of Newport came in on Wednesday evening to visit his dad, John Campbell. On his way in Michael picked up his nephew Tucker’s dog, Ringo. Ringo is staying with John for a week.

Janis, Michael, Anna, Myles, Addison, and Tucker Marr of Berea went to Mexico for a wedding. The photos they shared were beautiful. After their trip to Mexico, they went to Padre Island, Tex. They are having a good vacation.

On Friday, my sister Susan Ware of Lexington came in for the weekend. Our aunt Susan Stamper and cousin Laura Harris of Lexington came in also. Laura visited with her parents Bob and Ramona Caudill of Cowan. They all stayed until Sunday afternoon.

Our son, Greg Wenning of West Milton, Ohio, and Carla and Carli Charles of Xenia, Ohio came in for the weekend. It was great seeing them and spending time together. They arrived around 11 p.m. We were sitting around talking when I noticed my brother’s dogs, Buddy and Lady, at the door. We let them in and they made themselves at home. We kept looking for my brother but he didn’t show up. I finally called him and asked him if he knew where his dogs were. We still don’t know why the dogs showed up without him.

We had a large group eating breakfast at The Grill on Saturday morning. Then in the evening we went to the Mexican restaurant, Saxon. This was the first visit to Saxon for all except John, Mike and I. We enjoyed our meals at both places.

My cousin Kathy LaMonte of Yazoo City, Miss.came in to spend a week. Her granddaughters, Emma and Ava, are on spring break. I’m looking forward to spending time with them this week.

Ernie Ison visited all of us on Sunday afternoon. It was good seeing him and talking.

Roger and Tracey Yonts of Dahlonega, Ga. came in for the weekend. They visited Roger’s parents, Duane and Anna Yonts of Cowan.

Kae Fisher, Doris Ison, and Donna Watts went to Gatlinburg, Tenn. for the weekend. They were celebrating Kae Fisher’s birthday. The pictures I saw showed them having a good time. Kae’s cake was gorgeous.

Last weekend, Helen Roberts and Ella Caudill went to Chattanooga, Tenn. They picked up their sister, Evelyn Cosgriff, who had spent the winter in Mississippi with her daughters. They had a good trip.

Libby Honeycutt, Juanita Caudill, Helen Roberts, Ella Caudill, and Evelyn Cosgriff visited two Kentucky state parks over the weekend. They went to Pine Mountain State Park and Cumberland Gap State Park. The pictures I saw were great. These sisters always have a good time when they are together.

The Little Cowan Primitive Baptist Church started a revival on Sunday evening and it will go all week. It was a good service on Sunday. Pastor Oscar Irving will be there every evening along with Pastor John Banks.

This week’s quote is by Lao Tzu: “I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.”
