I guess winter isn’t through with us

Hello everyone, hope everything is going OK for all of you. Hope all the sick folks are doing better.

I haven’t been out much this week. I’ve been trying to get something done that I have been letting go. I don’t have a good excuse for it now.

I enjoyed talking to Lorraine Kuracka the other day. I hadn’t seen her in a while.

I’m trying to get back to the center. Lizzie Mae Wright said I had lost my seat. I’ll just find me another one.

I got a call a few days ago from Morgan Miller of Lexington. She’s related to the Millers here. She was asking about Lester Miller and his wife Ellen ( both deceased). We had a long talk. She wants to come for a visit soon.

Dorthy Tacket called to tell me about the death of her late brother-in-law’s exwife, Anna Ruth Hatton, in Tiffin, Ohio. I can remember Anna Ruth and her brother Sonny. They were children of Sillar and the late Baker Hatton (Clyde’s cousin). I didn’t know that Hubert Tacket had died. He was married to Anna Ruth. She was his first wife. They were all Marlowe people.

Dorthy’s daughter Jeanette has been in the hospital but is out now. Dorthy was getting ready to go to a baby shower for a relative of hers. Whitesburg

I went to church at Cram Creek. They are in a 30-day revival. Bro. Buddy Turner of Hazard preached really well. I enjoyed it and seeing everyone.

My son Billy and his wife Sandra are at their lake house this weekend and I know they are enjoying themselves. It’s so peaceful and relaxing there you can leave all your problems and just enjoy.

Sara and Chris Hatton and their family have gone to the lake also. I guess these pretty spring days have given them the fever. I’ve noticed my forsythia bushes are starting to bloom and also my jonquils are blooming. I hope they don’t get killed.

I went to Walmart and saw lots of people there. It was good seeing Gordon and Sheryl McClain there and getting to talk and visit a little. I believe the only way to visit anymore is going to Walmart and Food City and Save-A-Lot. What happened to visiting, sitting on the porch and drinking coffee and watching the kids play? The kids don’t go out and play anymore. They stay inside watching T.V. or playing videogames and we parents think we don’t have time for that. So we call each other on the phone and visit.

I talked with a lady in Walmart I had never met, Audrey (Adam) Hogg. She was a Marlowe girl. I knew the rest of her family, Vernon Adams, Melvin Adams, and Steve Adams (the quiet man). I call him that. He’s anything but quiet. He can talk as much as me.

Audrey went to school with my sister Kathleen Brock and my cousin Imogene Adkins. They were the same age, birthdays were Feb. 7, 8 and 9, same year. She was real nice. We found plenty to talk about, our animals. Of course we were in the pet food aisle.

I haven’t heard how Irene Hicks is doing. She has been so sick! I hope she is doing better.

I want to tell my son Rob, I met a girl at church that went to Alice Lloyd College with you. Her name was Linda Childers then. I didn’t get her last name. She said you and she both were redheads. Hers was still red.

I got a surprise when I looked out this morning, the snow was coming down hard. (It’s Sunday morning.) Kevin Day said we might see some flurries. I’m seeing serious snow, but I don’t think it will last. I trust Kevin and also the other weathermen gave the same prediction. Winter isn’t through with us as much as we would like for it to be.

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