Great-grandson born on Valentine’s Day

Hello everyone. Sorry I have been so busy lately with work. My granddaughter Ashley, her friend Jamie and Jamie’s son Brendon came to visit and help clean my house. It was much appreciated.

I made a trip to Indiana. On the way there I stopped at Florence to see Ashley, then to Batesville and stayed the night with Michaela and Phil. On Friday, I went to visit Chad and Amber after they got off work and spent the night with Mike at his apartment. He is doing well.

Then off to Columbus, Ind., to visit Agnes and Anna Maggard. They both need prayer. Then to North Vernon to visit Audrey and Charles Hammonds. They also need prayer. Back to Greensburg and ate supper with Mike and his friend Earl at Waffle House.

Around 10:30 on Saturday night, Michaela went to the hospital and my great grandson Lanceton James Allan Dickman was born at 4:01 a.m. on Valentine’s Day. Her papa would be so honored that he was born on his birthday and named after him and he was a great Valentine’s present for me. He is perfect — long black hair, weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces, and 19½ inches long. He looks like both parents, Michaela and Phil. Grandpa Chad and Grandma Amber and Grandma Diana Abbott are sure proud grandparents. I call him Little James because I see his papa’s nose.

Also, I went to Rushville and visited my niece Pam. Was good to see her and her friends.

I left a noon on Sunday and headed home. Took seven hours to get home. The farther I came this way the worse it got, but my little car coasted past the traffic. Hazard was awful and then my wiper broker on the driver’s side and had to be replaced on Monday. Sure glad to be home.

I was able to go to Hemphill Friday night. Really enjoyed seeing my friends again. It has been a long time.

Late happy anniversary to Debbie and Tom Wright, who met, got married and celebrate their anniversary at Hemphill and are still in love. They shared cake with us.

The lady I take care of is in the hospital with pneumonia in both lungs and oxygen level low. Keep her in prayer.

Well, guess I better get off here. Hoping all of you have a great week. Attend the church of your choice. Put God first in your life. May God bless each and every one of you.
