Thankfully, we didn’t get any damage from the high winds that were supposed to hit us on Sunday night.

The Letcher Homemakers were having their Thanksgiving dinner at the Parkway Motel Restaurant on Tuesday.

Lana Pridemore took Arnetta Mae Slone to Somerset to attend the Ralph Stanley Bluegrass Show. They went down on Saturday and had dinner at Cracker Barrel before attending the show.

Emma Amburgey had Sunday dinner with Ila Adams and her family. That was after attending Blair Branch Church.

Gwen’s Country Attic is having her Christmas open house on Nov. 22 and 23. She always has goodies and a sale. And also, don’t forget about the Blackey Community Center Christmas bazaar on Nov. 25 from 4 to 8 p.m. Many goodies will be for sale there, too, and soup and chili dinners of which the sale goes to help the Center.

Belated happy birthday to Medra Back Kiser, whose birthday was Nov. 18. She enjoyed a sleepover with Kyra Linn Hampton and Veronica Littrell — bet they reminisced about their younger days — and dinner with Richie and Codie Kiser.

On Saturday, Nov. 2, some of the family of the late Jim and Mary Ann Breeding met in Georgetown for a get- together. Lance, Edith and Jimmy came from Letcher County, their daughter Sherry and Tim came from Lexington, Norma Jean and daughter Carol came from Michigan. They met at the home of Lisa and Todd Eads.

Lois’s daughter and husband and two sons, Mary and Forest Hawkins, their son Troy and wife Stacy and their three children were there.

Everyone truly enjoyed being there and the food was delicious. They were sorry Gig and her family weren’t there.

Lance and Norma Jean have been hospitalized recently. They are improving now.

For the people of Blackey who remember Kester “Bug” and Helen Logan, their son’s wife died in June after a long illness.

Sorry, that’s it for now. Short column this week.
