Hello, everyone, hope things are going well for all of you.

Can you believe someone would be crazy enough to be up writing at 5:00 in the morning on Sunday? I heard a big noise down on the highway at 3:55 and couldn’t go back to sleep. I thought someone had wrecked. Everything was OK.

Dorthy Tackett called to tell me about her trip to Louisville. Her daughter, Charlene Mason, and all the Master’s Harmony group were singing at a church there. The church and also the pastor’s home had burned and they had built back. She said the church was beautiful, and they had treated them so good there and they really enjoyed it. Charlene’s husband, Rick Mason, and their two kids also went along.

Linda Hall was visiting Dorthy. They wanted to wish their brother, Hugh Watson Pennington, a belated happy birthday. Happy birthday from me also.

Their brother, Billy Pennington, who lives in Mississippi, had neck surgery. I hope he is doing OK.

I visited some folks at the Housing Project the other day. It was good seeing Shirley Lucas. Thelma Brown, and Mandy King and anyone else sitting on their porches. The new gazebo is real pretty there and I know they enjoy sitting out there.

BROTHER AND SISTER -  In this picture taken in October 1959, Benny F. Watkins (above) is shown at the age of eight years, two months. His sister, Paula, (below) was 13 years, 10 months in the photograph from October 1963. They are the children of Anna Watkins of Florida, who was Oma Hatton's neighbor more than 50 years ago.

My friend, Pat Branham, is a part-time D.J. at the Jenkins radio station. I haven’t been able to get it on my radio, but I’m sure Pat is doing a good job. She loves doing it.

I enjoyed going to a baby shower on Friday evening at Camp Branch Pentecostal Church where Bro. Josh Sturgill is pastor. The shower was for his wife, Tiffany. It was a great shower, lots of nice gifts and really good food. I loved being with the people.

Bro. Josh would love for you to come to church. He’s a good preacher, good singer, good musician, and good person.

Virginia Profitt would like for everyone to be praying for her stepdaughter, Shirley Adkins, who is real sick. She is 70 years old and works on a ship. I didn’t find out where she lives.

 

 

Also, Josephine Mullins wants everyone to remember her sister, Maxine, who is sick.

I really appreciate Bro. Tony Brown visiting Clyde and having prayer with him.

I attended the biggest wedding Saturday at Calvary Temple that I had ever seen. Jamie Niece and Juda Adkins were married. It was so beautiful and I have never seen so much food at a reception held out under a big tent. I think about everyone was there. I have known Jamie all his life. He is the son of Shirley and Carfa Niece of Whitco. I wish them a long, happy life together.

I’m sure enjoying my trips to Hazard with Shirley Breeding. She has shown my places there I had never seen. She is so nice!

Our pastor, Bro. John Conn, and wife Alicia were in Tennessee this weekend helping his son, Daniel, and family move – and maybe get to fish and rest a little.

My sister, Louise Shepherd, and her friend, Nanetta Dingus, were in Dollywood this weekend.

My sister, Kathleen Brock, has been having a lot of trouble with her eye. I sure hope it gets better soon. She’s been in a lot of pain.

Larry Hatton and I visited Clyde at the Veterans Center on Sunday. I also visited with Astor “Red” Hatton and wife Rosemary, who were visiting from Ashland. We all enjoyed the visit. Clyde was feeling pretty good.

Everyone loves seeing the old pictures. I need all of you to send me some.

Bro. Bill Adkins will be preaching at Camp Branch Pentecostal Church next Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Pastor Josh Sturgill invites everyone to come be with them. He’s a real good preacher.

May God bless all of you and may the sick all feel better.

Try to be in church somewhere this week.
