Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well. We sure have been having some nice weather.
I’ve been noticing the apple trees. If nothing happens to them, there will be a lot of apples, and also a lot of berries. That will be good.
I went to the funeral of Hazel Rayburn the other day. I didn’t really know her, but I knew her sister, Carol Ison. Hazel was well loved and everyone spoke real well of her, especially her good cooking and how kind she was to everyone.
Our sympathy goes out to her family. She will be missed.
I was so sorry to hear of the death of Dennis Hall. His wife, Linda Pennington Hall, is a special friend of mine, and also all the Pennington family for many years. Dennis was one of our Marlowe boys.
Whitco Pentecostal Church will be having a baked spaghetti dinner on Friday, June 28. That’s always real good. Our Homecoming will start on July 7 with Bro. Wendell Pittman of Missouri. He is a great preacher and a good friend of us all.
I saw Dan Combs in Food City on Saturday. He said he had a pretty garden. Somehow, I knew he would. He has always been a good worker as far back as I can remember. I can see him mowing at his house in Marlowe. I can see it from my house. There’s a lot of grass to mow there, and it is always beautiful.
Thank you, Jane Ellen Cox, for the pictures you sent me. I sure enjoyed your visit and I hope you can come back sometime.
Philip’s handyman and his helper sure did a good job weed-eating for me, and they were reasonable and fast, and did some extra stuff. I can certainly recommend them. I have his phone number if anyone needs him.
My son, Bill Hatton, and wife Sandra enjoyed a good dinner with Maggie Cook on Saturday. I don’t know who all was there.
Her grandson, Sawyer Cook, son of Steve Cook, was in on a furlough from the Army, and it was his birthday. Maggie cooked him a birthday dinner. I’m sure it was good. Maggie is one of the best cooks around, especially her chicken and dumplings.
I’ve been wondering about how Emma Lou Engle is doing. I’ll call her sister Anna Lea and find out.
I guess my son Rob will be coming home from their vacation. I’m sure glad they had a good time. All of them being together, that’s what makes a good vacation. They all love that.
Christine Fields, I don’t know if I ever told you, but I like your news. There are always some people I know. That’s why I read all of them. I don’t want to miss anything. I like to know everything. I’m just interested!
We still have so many people sick. I heard Dorothy Miles was in the hospital. I hope she is out now and doing well. I’ll call her.
I called her and she is still in the hospital. I’ll go visit her. She has pneumonia and is coughing and smothering. Remember her in prayer.
Her son Paul David was there with his daughter and Dorothy’s daughter Glenda was there also.
I’d like to say hello to my friends Anna Watkins in Florida and to Ada (Miller) King in Miamisburg, Oh. They are longtime friends.
Please remember Sonia Fields and Steve Taylor when you pray.
This has been a busy week for me. I haven’t done much that I can see, but I have been tired all week. I have some outside painting to do but I have to watch out for the rain.
Maybe I’m just using that for an excuse. I think I have gotten lazy.
This has not been a good week for news. Not much going on, or I haven’t found out about it.
May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week if you are able.
