Hello everyone, hope everything is going well for all of you. It’s rainy and cold this morning. I guess it is the time of year for that.
The leaves have been so pretty, but they are falling fast. I always hate to see them go. My yard is covered in them.
I enjoyed getting a card from Wayne and Orpha Hampton of New Paris, Oh. She said she felt like she knew me from reading my news in The Eagle. I also got a card from Vickie Underwood of Carey, Oh. She is the daughter of the late Vanessa and Jr. Hatton, cousins of ours. I appreciated the cards. I’ve gotten a lot, and really appreciate you thinking of me.
I really enjoyed going back to Ermine Center and seeing everyone. They still remembered me.
My sister Louise Shepherd spent a couple of days in Whitesburg Hospital with a blood clot. She’s home now and doing better.
Hillard Howard was probably a happy coach. They won their game recently in the rain. It usually rains for them.
My sister Judy Green of Frankfort called. She had been to the ball game.
I’m glad to hear that Robbie Conn is doing better. We’ve been real worried about him. I’ve known him all of his life. He is the son of Belinda and Billy Conn of Whitco.
We have a lot of sick folks and most of the schools have closed because of the flu. I hope all of the sick get better fast.
I haven’t got my flu shot yet. I’ll try to get it soon.
It was good seeing Pearl and Charles Noble at Walmart the other day. Pearl has been in a lot of pain with six broken ribs, but she is feeling better.
Lisa Taylor of St. Louis, Mo., I found a picture of your grandfather Edward Taylor when he visited us in the early ’70s. We enjoyed meeting him.
I hope the kids got a lot of goodies on Halloween night. I am sorry that it rained on them.
I haven’t been out and about much, so I don’t have much to write about.
It was good talking to my son Rob Hatton one morning. That’s the next best thing to a visit. We always find a lot to talk about.
I think my son Astor and his wife might be coming in for a visit this weekend. I always look forward to seeing my boys. I see Larry almost every day, and Billy stops often on his way to work.
We have a whole bunch of birthdays coming up in November: my sister Joann Brown of Indianapolis, Ind., on Nov. 10; Charles Howard, your old carpet man, on Nov. 2; Jonathon ‘Jump’ Hatton, our medical student, on Nov. 11; Jamie Hatton, our lawyer, and yours truly on Nov. 21.
It seems like no time since I’ve had one. The older you get the faster they come.
The time changed again. It’s always hard for me to get used to it. A one-hour change sure makes a lot of difference. It will be nice for the schoolchildren. They won’t have to leave before daylight.
My grandson Chris Hatton and son Beau and some friends all went to the lake last week and had to buy more coolers to hold all the fish they caught. I’m sure they were pleased and are eating fish.
May God bless all of you. Try to go to church somewhere this week.
