Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well. It’s rainy and cold today, a good day to stay indoors. Seems like I don’t get to do that much, I’m out doing something.

Thank you, Shelby Bockover, for the pictures you sent. I put them in The Eagle. I’m glad you are enjoying The Eagle. It really flies all over the place.

Sara Ison called me the other day to remind me she and Clarence still live at Ice. I promise you, I’ll come and see you as soon as I can. I haven’t forgotten you, just had a lot going on.

My sister, Louise Shepherd, has been back in the hospital. She is out now and I hope she will stay out.

Thank you for my pretty Easter card, Betty Asher in Columbus, Ohio. I hope you can come see me again this summer.

Oh, I forgot to say Sara and Clarence Ison will be having their 71st anniversary soon. He’s still putting a little garden out. He is past 90 something. Not many people his age will do that. Some can’t, some just won’t. With the price of food, it would save you money and taste so good!

MARLOWE BOYS — Pictured are Bobby, John and Paul Marlowe, sons of the late Betty and Jim Marlowe, and their dog. Whitesburg correspondent Oma Hatton was their babysitter when she was a teenager.

I called Ada (Miller) King in Miamisburg, Ohio. Her husband, Arthur King, is very, very sick. She is really sad. Pray for them.

I went to Whitesburg Holiness Church and really enjoyed it. They had a full house, good preaching, and good singing. They sure have a beautiful church and the people are so friendly, you feel welcome there. Bro. Larry David Caudill of Perry County is their pastor.

I called to check on my friend, Tommie Baker, and she wasn’t home. I’ll try later.

I called my friend, Roberta Willie. She was doing OK. Her sister-in-law, Ruth Ann Brown, has been visiting her all week. Roberta hates to see her leave. She’s really close to her and her husband, Roland (Roberta’s brother).

My sister, Louise Shepherd, and Shannon Banks and I all went to the Ermine Center for a hot-dog dinner they were having for the Relay for Life. It was going real well. A lot of people were stopping by. The food was real good and it was good seeing everyone. I wish I could get up there more often.

AUGUST BIRTHDAYS — Shelby and Bobby Bockover of Greensburg, Ind., are pictured at their 70th birthday party in 2008, given by their children. Her birthday is August 18 and his is August 31. The couple both like country music and attend the Old Regular Baptist Church.

Guess what! One of my little goats had triplets. I was expecting only one. They are so cute and beautiful. I’ll have a hard time staying away from the barn. One looks like Annabel; they’re cousins. Everyone needs at least one goat. They are fun to take care of, but they do eat a lot. I think I spend more money on food for my critters than I do for myself, but I think they are worth it. They say they are good therapy for older folks, not that I’m one of them.

My sister, Betty Tyree, and I visited Clyde on Thursday. He was really doing well and eating more than he’s ever eaten. His nephew, Kellis “Bud” Hatton, is a resident there. He’s having a hard time getting adjusted there.

Everything is blooming so pretty. I hope we don’t get the cold and snow like they are telling us that will freeze things.

Late happy birthday to my little brother, Hillard Howard, whose birthday was April 2. He just missed April Fool’s Day by one day.

ONE-ROOM SCHOOL — Posing for a photograph are the students of the Pig School, a oneroom school on Cowan. It was sent to Whitesburg correspondent Oma Hatton by Shelby (Thomas) Bockover of Greensburg, Ind., the daughter of Nancy and Culbert Thomas and granddaughter of the late Dan and Polly Thomas of Whitco. She moved to Indiana in 1950, finished high school there, and married Bobby Bockover in 1960. She loves reading The Eagle and goes to the Regular Baptist Church. She gave the names of most of the students including Gay Thomas, Jimmy Caudill, Rollan Trent, Richard Thomas, and the late Nina Thomas (fourth from left, back row), her sister. The next two girls in the back row are Johnsons, and the one on the right is Shelby Bockover. Oma Hatton asks that anyone recognizing the others get in touch with her.

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