Howard reunion scheduled for Dec. 12


Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well and enjoying life.

I certainly enjoyed last week. My son Rob came in for a visit and stayed Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and part of the day on Thursday. We didn’t get out much, but we went to the cemetery one day, and to Long John Silver’s, and we went to the Grill every evening to see all of the people.

Billy and Sandra ate with us on Wednesday, the day we had been going for a long time. We talked and talked. I just had a good time. I miss him now.

He spent some time with his children and grandchildren in Lexington, and he always enjoys that. He will be spending Thanksgiving there. I think his son Kevin and family are coming to visit him this week. He was looking forward to that.

Our Howard reunion will be on Dec. 12 at the Sandlick Fire Department. Start getting ready, all of you. I hope the weather will be good, and that everyone can make it.

Our sympathy goes out to the family of Jackson Banks, and to all the others we didn’t know. It makes for a sad time.

It was good seeing Diane Lewis and her husband at Pine Mountain Grill, and also Richard and Pauline Adams.,

Jim Banks is a patient in Whitesburg Hospital. I visited with him recently. He seemed to be doing some better. His daughter Destini was with him.

Eva Cook called and said that her brother-in-law Hatler Cook was sick in a hospital in Middlesburg. I hope he is doing better. He was formerly from Dry Fork, and has family here.

Bro. Robbie Conn is still having some health problems and needs everyone’s prayers.

Vickie Standifer had surgery in Pikeville Methodist Hospital. She is home now and doing better. I hope she can soon be back at church. She sits behind me, and I miss her when she’s not there.

Louise Shepherd has had some company this week; her grandson Zack Day and Jan Boggs (her niece, I think) have been visiting, and Louise has enjoyed having them.

We’ve been enjoying our pretty days we’ve had recently after our cold spell.

Coach Hillard Howard’s team won its ball game recently, and it didn’t rain. I’m glad they didn’t get wet. I have never been to a ball game in my life. I never got interested in sports.

My grandson Jamie Hatton will be having a birthday Nov. 29. I’m sure he will have a great one.

My sister Judy Greene called and told me she had her beautiful home in Bronston up for sale. It’s a super place, right there on the lake, and I’m sure she hates to sell it, but she and her husband Johnny both work in Frankfort and they have to live there. I guess you have to do things you don’t like. They have good jobs, which is real good in times like now when so many are out of work.

I’ve sure enjoyed these warm, sunshiny days, but winter is coming.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. We should have Thanksgiving every day and be thankful for all we have been blessed with. It’s great to be an American.

The news is short this week, but no news is better than bad news.

May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week.

I need some pictures!
