Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well.
Are you ready for the gossip? Okay, pull up a chair and maybe get a cup of coffee and let’s visit.
My sister Louise Shepherd and her family have gone to visit their cousins Jan and Curt Boggs to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary and to renew their wedding vows. Those two are still in love! I forgot where they live. I’ve known them for many years.
I’m so glad Dorthy Tacket’s daughter Charlene Mason came through well in her surgery this week in Pikeville Hospital.
My grandson, Dr. Jonathon Hatton, signed up for another year there. He likes it there.
I’ve had a real good week. Our revival at our church was the best one we have ever had. Bro. David Miller preached so good! He is a good friend of ours. He used to be close by here. He pastors a church in Dayton, Oh.
Friday night, we had a big pastor appreciation dinner for our pastor, Bro. John Conn. We love him and he seems like family to us. We had a full house and lots of great food.
I called my cousin Dorothy Miles, and she was having a pretty good day and her husband Glen was too. She’s about like a sister to us, and we all love Glen, too.
Has anyone lost a white pet rabbit? It is beautiful. It was at Louise Shepherd’s house at Westwood when we came home from church. It was tame. It was not afraid of us. It sat down under her swing. I wondered if it was some child’s pet. Someone said they had seen two out there. I worried about it.
I thought it would survive like other rabbits, then I heard that they couldn’t. I hope someone finds it. It was about grown and real fat.
I want to wish Carol Day a belated happy birthday. It was Oct. 8. I can’t remember everyone’s. I try, but I have 10 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren, and my four boys and their spouses.
Carol is so good to her mom, Louise Shepherd!
I had a nice little visit with my brother Charles Howard at Howard’s Carpet Store the other day. He made coffee and I brought crème horns and we at them all!
I heard Tom Hall, who lives near me, is real sick and needs prayer. He was a good friend of my husband, Clyde.
My sister, Betty Tryee, came out for a visit. We’ve had to turn our heat on. It has been so warm we haven’t used it much.
I want to wish my good friend Evelyn Kincer an early happy birthday. We’ve been friends for many years and sat together in church.
I’d like to say hello to some old Marlowe friends, Claudine (Brown) Sturgill in Ohio, Ada (Miller) King in Miamisburg, Oh., and Anna Watkins in Florida. I talked with her a few days ago and to Bertha (Page) Dye in Prestonsburg.
Our Sunday School was so good. Our teacher, Bro. Donald Enfusse taught so good! We have great teachers and preachers in our church. It’s an old-fashioned church in a beautiful building, and we love it.
It’s been good not having a funeral to go to this week. We have lost so many lately, but we have so many sick.
Believe it or not, I have got some long overdue work done this week. I have felt like doing some.
I’ve just been lazy too long and didn’t want to. I’ll try to do better this week. I like working outside and I’ve not done any of that last week.
The trees are all looking so pretty in their fall colors. I hope they last a long time. Last year they all fell off and didn’t get pretty. I hope winter doesn’t come early; all the other seasons have.
I saw one woolly worm and it was half black and half brown. I’m not sure what that means. I think it will be half and half. We will find out later.
May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere if you are able.
