Hello everyone. Hope you are all doing well.
How about this pretty snow we had Saturday morning? It sure was pretty, but I was surprised to see it. I thought maybe it would just be flurries. It’s starting to look like Christmas weather.
I’m glad that I didn’t have to go out. It was cold, but there was nothing on the highway, so that’s good. But there were probably some slick spots in some places.
I talked to my friend, Roberta Willie in Roanoke, Va., and she said her nephew Roland Brown and his wife Ellen spent Thanksgiving with her and spent four days. She sure enjoyed it. They are such nice people. I told Roberta that I could sure take a liking to them.
A big hello to Roland and Ellen. Come back and see me sometimes. I won’t promise a big dinner like I’m sure Roberta made for you, but I would feed you something and enjoy talking to you.
I ran into some old Marlowe friends at Food City the other day, Lela (Adams) Dixon and her husband Clyde Dixon. He was a next-door neighbor when he was a little boy. He has a lot of health problems, but he looked like he was doing well.
I was glad to see them. I have a special feeling for all of the Marlowe people. We were like one big family.
I talked with Maudell Fugate of Chavies, who was another Marlowe girl. She has a daughter who is real sick in Winchester. I hope she will be all right.
I talked with my sister Judy Greene in Frankfort, and she was excited about our Christmas party at Sandlick Fire Department on Dec. 12. I hope everyone can make it, and that the weather will be good. It’s hard for some to make it on account of their jobs.
My granddaughter Rocki (Hatton) Hill and her husband Matt and their baby Elise were to visit her dad Robert Hatton over the weekend. Matt’s family were having a family reunion in Owensboro. Rob was looking forward to seeing them. They live in Lexington. I hope they make it to our Christmas party.
Irene Amburgey, I’m sorry I missed your call. I don’t know if Brad Hatton was in the war in Vietnam or not. I’m trying to find out, but we didn’t hear from him much after he left here. I’m going to call you back, Irene. I’d love to talk to you. You left us and went to live in Wellington.
I called my sister Joann Brown in Indianapolis. She said her daughter-in-law Jennifer Brown has the swine flu and has been pretty sick all week. I hope that she is feeling better and that her family doesn’t get it. I still haven’t gotten a regular flu shot yet. I keep forgetting it. Maybe I’ll get around to it sometime.
My son Billy Hatton and family got together at The Courthouse Cafe to celebrate their son Jamie Hatton’s birthday. They all enjoyed it. I didn’t get to go as I had a real bad cold and my legs were hurting.
I really appreciated Everidge Funeral Home for its gift of love for Clyde, a light on the Tree of Life at Whitesburg ARH.
My news is short this week. With rain and snow I haven’t been out much.
Next week I can write about our Howard Christmas party.
May God bless all of you, and try to be in church somewhere this week.
