Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well. We’ve had a lot of weather changes, some cold, some warm, some rain and some hail, and some wind.
The wind caused some big limbs to fall at our place. Thankful that it didn’t do a lot of damage, just some hard work cleaning up. We are not through yet.
I enjoyed talking to Ruth Frazier of UZ. Her husband Ralph Frazier was killed on a bulldozer a few years back. Her sister was married to the late Ike Hatton.
She wanted to find out the date her sister had died. I told her to call Elzie Ray Hatton of Tennessee. He knows everything about all the Hattons, all the way back. He keeps up on all of them and keeps record of them.
It was so good talking to Judy (Whitaker) Dent. We had a long talk about all the old Marlowe people. So many of them are no longer with us, but not forgotten.
She said her husband Benny Dent had just been talking to my brother John Howard. I think they were graduated together at Whitesburg High School.
We Marlowe people like to keep in touch.
Tony Howard, son of my brother Hubert Howard, has been sick. He lives in Nicholas. Hubert and his wife Joyce went to visit him. They said he was feeling better. I’m sure glad of that. We all love Tony.
We offer our sympathy to the family of Paul Gene Adams of Isom. I didn’t know him, but I knew his parents and also his grandparents, the late Margie and Chester Adams, and great-grandparents, the late Dora and Henry Pennington. They were all good people and also Marlowe people.
Our readers all like to hear about Marlowe. It seems like there’s a bond between all of hem. I keep up with them as much as I can.
I just got word that another good friend, Pat Bowen, had died. She was a volunteer at Whitesburg Hospital and I loved talking to her. She was so friendly with everyone and also pretty and always smiling.
So many people are sick. I hope they are doing better.
Happy birthday to my daughter-in-law Rosemary Hatton in Georgetown on Oct. 21. Her son Michael and his family came down to visit her and Astor, and they had a good visit and everyone enjoyed it.
Anyone would enjoy being around Astor and Rosemary. They love company.
I appreciate my brother Bobby Ray Howard going to Georgetown and buying a truck from my son Astor Hatton. He is a great salesman. He likes people and loves to talk, and I think everyone likes him. I sound like a mom?
Would you believe I have a flower bush blooming here in October? It has bloomed three times this year, with pretty, yellow flowers. I can’t spell the name — shame on me!
I’m enjoying these warm days. The trees are so pretty. I love the fall colors. I sure hope we don’t have a real bad winter. I love to watch it snow, but I am scared of icy roads. I always try to stay inside.
We will be having a Pastor’s Appreciation on Sunday evening for our pastor, Bro. John Conn. He is such a good pastor, always around when people need him. He sure keeps busy.
I got a call from my son Rob in Owensboro. He got to have his little granddaughter Elise Hill last weekend. I’m not sure they didn’t spoil her. She’s a special little girl. She lives in Lexington.
May God bless you and all your family. Try to be in church somewhere this week.
