Hello there. I hope you are all doing well and surviving the heat. I can’t complain — it’s better than snow and ice.
I don’t mind the snow if I can stay indoors. There’s something good in all the seasons. We need to enjoy and appreciate it all.
Last week was a good week. I visited Letcher Manor Nursing Home last Tuesday to visit Earl and Juanita Profitt. Earl was looking better and seemed to be doing better. Bob Caudill and Patsy Nantz were there with him. I enjoyed seeing them.
I got a call from Anna Watkins in Florida. I put in the paper last week that I hadn’t heard from her in awhile, and hoped that she was doing well. I was planning on calling her. She was doing pretty well.
Hello Anna! She’s been getting The Eagle
for many years. That’s one way of keeping in touch with old friends.
Glen and Dorothy Miles of Cowan have had some company, their son Gary Miles and wife Brenda (I think they live in Georgetown) and their daughter, Heather and her new baby boy named Titus Daily. He is beautiful of course. Heather’s husband is Scottie Daily.
Aggie Hatton and I have been attending the revival services at Colson Pentecostal Church where Bro. Josh Sturgill is pastor. We have certainly enjoyed it. Bro. Josh is doing a good job with a good church. I enjoy listening to his radio program on Sunday mornings at 8 o’clock.
Bro. Corey Herrand of Alabama was the evangelist; he really preached well. Our pastor, Bro. John, was there and Bro. Eugene Knowles and Bro. Jamie Niece and his wife, Juda and her parents, Bro. Bill Adkins and wife, of Hazard. Both these men are great preachers.
It was so good seeing old friends, Lorraine and John Sexton. I hadn’t seen them in a long time. I just had to sit with them!
Aggie and I really appreciated Dana and Doug Sturgill giving us a ride there. I don’t like driving after dark. I think that is being a Good Samaritan! Thank you so much.
They had a Shepherd reunion at Fishpond Lake, and I hope it went well. I’ll write about it next week.
I just heard that another hometown boy died. He was the son of the late Otis and Tootsie Sturgill, John L. Sturgill. I think he was the same age as my son, Rob.Th
ey lived in Michigan and were good friends of ours, and they got The
to keep up with family and friends here. They have lots of family here. Our sympathy goes out to all of them.
I was sorry to miss a shower on Saturday. I got the time mixed up. I didn’t have anything to remind me. I went early so I could visit, and I was way too late. It was at the Sandlick Fire Department at 3 p.m., and I went at 6:30 p.m.
The shower was for one of our church girls who plays the drums, and her mom, Jennifer Absher, is one of our piano players, and also a great singer.
Vickie Standifer is a patient in Pikeville Hospital, where she had surgery. We sure miss her at church.
Lots of folks were gone over the weekend. Hubert and Joyce Howard went to their place at the lake, and Larry Hatton and Linda are at their place at the lake, also. She and Hubert were at Larry’s. He cooked dinner for them. He loves doing that.
Chris and Sara Hatton and their children, Beau, Brooke and Gracie, all spent a couple of days there, along with some of their friends, then they were all going to Myrtle Beach.
Louise Shepherd went home with their cousins, Jan and Curt Boggs, after the Shepherd reunion last Saturday. I hope they all enjoy themselves. I just enjoy staying home and being lazy.
I enjoyed talking to Linda Sturgill last week. They ran out of gas in my driveway, and I couldn’t get by to go for gas for them. Bruce went with someone and got gas, and they were on their way. I hadn’t seen them in a long time, and I was glad to see them.
May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week.
