Kids awaiting summer vacation

Hello all! I hope this finds each of you doing well. Michael, the boys and I are doing well right now. I hate to say that; I’m afraid I will jinx us.

I know I am late, but how was your Easter weekend? Ours went well. We had our Easter dinner at Mom and Dad’s house on Saturday because everyone had too many places to be on Sunday. We all ate too much and laughed until our sides hurt. The kids had fun hiding eggs.

Michael, the boys and I went to church with most of the family at Dixon Memorial on Sunday and then spent the rest of the afternoon with his family having a cookout and hiding eggs for the kids at the Perry County Park. Blair Branch

Our boys are starting to get anxious for summer vacation. Bailey is especially excited about summer camp at Revelation Ranch.

How about you? Are you looking forward to summer? I’m ready for a break from the hustle and bustle of the school year but not really looking forward to the heat. I’d be happy with fall weather year-round.

My youngest son, Dalton, saw a caterpillar crawling on the sidewalk. He said “Hey, Mom, come look at this catapede.” I tried to explain to him the difference in a centipede and a caterpillar, but as a parent sometimes you have to pick and chose your battles. This was one of those times. They are catapedes to us from now on.

I spent some time with Mom and Dad, Allen and Sylvania Whitaker, Sunday afternoon. Mom had called and asked if I wanted to come down and eat dinner with them. She had fixed chicken casserole, mashed potatoes, cooked cabbage, and cornbread. Of course, I went.

Mom said that Steve and Marcie Blair had come to visit with her and Dad earlier that day and they had enjoyed themselves. Steve and Marcie were in from Indianapolis for the weekend.

Dad had taken Mom up on the hill to the Clarence Blair Cemetery to visit the graves. She said it was a beautiful time to be there. The weather was nice, wind blowing, wildflowers blooming. It was very peaceful.

Mom went out to check on Charles E. Blair on Saturday. She said he wasn’t doing well.

Mary Goff hasn’t been doing well, either. She said she thinks she has pneumonia and has been sick since Grandma Lucy Halcomb Blair’s funeral.

Mom had an appointment in Lexington at the Transplant Center last week. She received some good news after her checkup. She is still eligible to be on the transplant list. Now we continue to pray and wait.

My sister, Opal Jent, was telling me that Joyce Ison is still having a hard time getting around, but she is having her other knee replaced around the first of June. Hopefully she will be back to normal soon.

Opal’s grandson Hayden now has a couple goats of his very own to ride. When he comes to see his Papaw Allen he always wants to get on the back of Pap’s goats and ride them around. Hayden’s dad, Gardner Allen Jent, bought two goats for Hayden. I figure Allen and Jess will be tired of giving goat rides real quick.

Wayne Fields has been having some problems with his stomach. He said he wasn’t sure, but he thought he may have an ulcer again.

Mary Lou Brown-Nolan and Jason Rice celebrated their birthdays on April 29; Cody Adams and my momma Sylvania Whitaker, May 2; Reva Adams, May 3; Peggy Whitaker will celebrate her birthday May 5; Jessica Jent, Marcie Blair, and Roy Culp, May 8; Heather Blair, May 9; and Stephanie Blair, May 10. Happy birthday to each of you! I hope your day is filled with all the love and happiness in the world.

Vette and Tub Caudill will celebrate their wedding anniversary May 4. Happy anniversary you two! I hope you have many more lovefi lled years together.

If I have left anyone or anything out, just let me know and I will be glad you get you next time.

I hope everyone has a healthy and happy week. If you would like to contact me, feel free to give me a call or you may email me at alancouch@hotmail.com.
