Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well.

We are getting a little rain today. I think we needed it for the gardens. I wish I had one! I have my flowers and it will help them. I love flowers and rose bushes.

I called my friend Dorthy Tacket today. She is doing a little better and she said her son-in-law Ricky Mason was doing O.K. after his wreck.

My great-granddaughter Brooke Hatton has been in the hospital, but she’s out now and doing better. I always stop there to speak to the volunteers who are there. I appreciate them so much!

It was good to see Dixie Hall. I hadn’t seen her in a long time and knew her face but couldn’t remember her name and then I remembered visiting her a long time ago and really enjoyed it.

There was another pretty lady who was a volunteer there and I knew her and didn’t get her name. I enjoyed talking with them.

I called Shirley Breeding. She has been having a lot of health problems but is doing some better. She is one great lady! We spent a lot of time together when both of our husbands were in Hazard Veterans Center. We rode down together and shopped some and had lunch. I sure appreciate her!

I have sure enjoyed going to Senior Citizens and seeing all the people. I’ve enjoyed seeing my Blackey friends, Martha Burns and Joann Campbell. We went to school together a few years ago when we were six or seven years old.

I enjoyed talking to my next door neighbor, Mary Kaye York. We can’t see each other’s home for the trees between us. Her mother Myrtle Halcomb lived there before and Mary was born there, I think.

My son Larry had a bad fall today and he is in a lot of pain in his back and head. He needs a lot of prayers and I’m glad I’m close by and try to do what I can to help.

My son Astor is getting ready for a lot of teeth work. He wants it and he also dreads it.

My son Billy and wife Sandra are going to their lake house this week. He has been over to Pikeville for Hillbilly Days with his daughter Angie Hatton and they enjoyed it. They sure have big crowds over there, like we do here at our Mountain Heritage every year .

My other son Rob will be going to Lexington for his granddaughter Elise Hill’s birthday party. Their family is moving now to a new home. They’ve outgrown their home. They will still be in Lexington. Rocki and Matt Hill love Lexington! Rob still loves Owensboro.

We have had so many funerals lately. We offer our sympathy to all the families. I can’t go to a lot of them. I don’t do a lot of driving anymore, not that I’m too old. Ha! Ha!

My pastor, Bro. John Conn, and wife Alicia have been visiting their family in Tennessee at the lake. I know they are enjoying themselves.

I sure did enjoy Bro. Rodney Allen’s preaching on Tuesday night. I always do. I’ve known him about all his life.

I talked to my brother Hubert Howard today and he’s not feeling good either.

We just had a big rain and it’s stopped now and the sun is shining bright.

I wish some of the folks who tell me they like my news would give me some of their news and it wouldn’t be so boring.

I’ve been trying to get around to do some work that needs to be done and think I don’t have time. I just can’t seem to get around to it. What goes with my time? Time just seems to get away from me. Is it just me? I guess so.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. My God bless all of you and try to be in church somewhere if you are able.
