Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well.
I’ve been visiting in Georgetown with my son Astor and his wife Rosemary. My son Rob came to my house after the Bristol races and spent the night with me and we went to visit with Astor. Rob spent the night with us and we really enjoyed it.
I came home on Thursday. Astor brought me home.
I’m really looking forward to the Hatton reunion on Saturday at Cowan Community Center. I try to go every year. I’ll write all about it.
Today was the day for the Hatton reunion and I really appreciate Jerry and Alberta Barker for coming and getting me and taking me to the center. I surely enjoyed every minute of it. We had a houseful of people. They came from everywhere.
I didn’t get to go last year. I was in rehab. I asked everyone if they had it and no one seemed to know.
We had a lot of folks from out of state and also a lot of the homefolks and of course enough food for a small army. All of us went home stuffed and we had such a good time. Everyone was taking pictures and having a good time.
My granddaughter Angie Hatton and her daughter Ellie were there for the first time and they sure enjoyed themselves.
It was good seeing Vickie Underwood of Ohio there and her brother Ivan Hatton and their aunt. I had never met her. They always come to the reunions and so do Merle Landrum and his wife and his sister Irene Landrum. They lived in Whitco a long time ago when they were growing up. Their parents were Dewey and Flossie Landrum.
Chris Caudill and wife Missy were there working hard to see that everyone was taken care of.
There were even a Bill Hatton and wife there. He was the son of Ernie and Mae Hatton at Whitco. There are a lot of Bill Hattons besides my son
I didn’t mention Jerry and Alberta’s other daughter Sherry. She was there working hard also. Everyone was working hard.
It sure was a great reunion. It was good seeing Fleta Mae Brown and her son Bruce and daughter Margaret. I’m looking forward to the next reunion!
Some of the people there told me they had made picture books of pictures I put in the paper. That pleased me.
We all missed Elzie Ray Hatton. He wasn’t able to come. He always came and he was really missed. Some of them had passed away and we remembered them.
I’m going to Sunday school today. I look forward to it and I also look forward to a call from my sister Joanne Brown every day. They have been having some bad weather in Indianapolis.
I’ve not had a chance to get out and find out how everyone is doing. I heard from Shirley Breeding the other day. She said she was doing well. I love hearing from her. We spent a lot of time together when our husbands were sick.
We have the Howard family reunion on Sept. 17. It will be sad. We have lost two of our sisters this year and they will surely be missed.
We hope you are all doing well and may God bless you. Try to be in church somewhere if you are able.
