Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well.
We are seeing some snow fly today (Saturday). I hope we don’t see much of it.
I’m ready for spring, but it’s not up to me. But I’ll be ready for it and stay inside if it gets bad.
I was so sorry to hear that Emma Lou Engle had a stroke. I sure hope she is doing better.
I want to wish Edwina (Howard) Adams and Jerry Barker, James Fields and Tom Davies (Kevin Day’s uncle) belated happy birthdays. They seem to come earlier as you grow older, and more often.
It’s hard to believe I’ve had as many as I have. I’m not going to say how many. I am blessed to feel as good as I do.
My sympathy goes out to all the family of little Logan Howard. He was the grandson of my cousin, Vess Jr. Howard. There was a very large crowd at his funeral that was so helpful to his family.
I talked with my son Astor
Hatton in Georgetown on Friday. They were doing fine. He was glad to hear from Dorothy Miles of Cowan and to find out she had a son living in Georgetown also, Gary Miles. They will be getting together soon.
I just heard of the passing of Savannah (Marcum) Rose. It brought back a lot of old Marlowe memories of friends. She was a daughter of the late Julie and Noah Marcum. They were a large family (like ours). I remember her brothers and sisters, the late Edgar and Ezel Bourns, Ruth, Sara Rosella, Geraldine, George and Herman, and some I can’t remember.
It’s been so long ago, over 50 years, that they lived in Marlow Hollow and were good neighbors. I’d love to hear from some of them. Sarah still lives in Neon, maybe. I try to keep up with my old friends.
I enjoyed spending the day Friday with my granddaughter, Wendy (Hatton) Day and her son Rocky. We spent the day at Hazard. We went to Walmart shopping. Rocky got a haircut and we had lunch at Taco Bell. I hadn’t been there in a long time. It was good!
I had a very happy Valentine’s Day. My sons are so thoughtful! I think they like their mom. I think I will keep them.
I loved the flowers, candy and phone calls.
Please pray for my cousins, Brenda and Dexter Howard in Garrett, Ind. They are very sick. They live so far away. Their cousin, Ruby Howard, lives close by, and she is not in good health, but she does all she can for them.
Brenda is in the hospital there now, and Dexter has been in poor health for a long time.
My son, Bill Hatton, and wife Sandra left recently, going on a Longaburger cruise. I’m sure they will enjoy themselves. After seeing that Carnival cruise ship in all that trouble I would have been too scared to go.
I’m a coward. I want my feet on the ground, not on the water and not in the air. I can’t swim and I don’t have wings to fly.
Sunday, we had about an inch of snow. Most of the churches were canceled. We didn’t have Sunday School at our church, but had church at 3 p.m.
I just heard that Evelyn Hogg has died. She was the wife of the late Maynard Hogg. Our sympathy certainly goes out to the families. They have been our friends for many years. The Hoggs are a well-loved family.
I talked with my sister Judy Greene. She had a bad case of flu. She said she would get the flu shot from now on. She is doing better.
My brother John is visiting her, and he had better get back home. We are missing him.
So many of our friends and family are needing prayer, Sis. Shirley Niece, Donald Enfusse, Sonia Fields and my sister Kathleen Brock.
Hubert Howard is having hip surgery at Pikeville. He’s been having a lot of pain. I hope his surgery goes well.
So many people are having flu. I’m having some allergy problems, just coughing. It’s the season for it, I guess.
Well, I’ve rattled on enough, so may God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week if you are able.
The snow had melted off of the roads and we can have church. I’m sure thankful for that!
