I hope everyone has had a good week. Mine has been wonderful. I have been feeling bad and have had a lot of tests and am feeling so much better. Thank you so much for all the calls and get well wishes. That means a lot when you’re having health issues.
The Colson Center has been busy with the Halloween party at Kingscreek and other activities. We won best pumpkin. Linda Sturgill won first place for best costume and for her tombstone. Brenda Seals won first place for her monster costume. She was really scary! Hey Jim Craft, you pulled a lot of pranks with the clown water flower!
Our site manager Elisha Baker had a birthday this past week and Nancy Fultz celebrated her 75th. That woman is like a 20-year-old, she is so young at heart. We love her and Don; they are such nice folks.
Rosemary Mullins and Gearlene went to Gearlene’s great-granddaughter, Natalie Shay Hughes’s, second birthday party this weekend. These girls love to travel and they do all they can.
This week the center will be closed on Wednesday and Thursday. We will be working on our Christmas project, starting this week. We would love for you to come by and give us a helping hand. I know you would enjoy it.
Archie and Glenda Banks have their new home onsite now and are waiting to get everything hooked up. We wish them the best. They are wonderful friends and neighbors. They are always ready to give a helping hand to those in need.
Carl Parrott has been under the weather, but is home now and doing much better. May he continue to do well. We always have a lot of fun when Carl is around.
Coolie Baker and Brian Lucas really enjoyed the U.K. game with Pikeville. Of course, Coolie lives and breathes Blue.
Happy birthday wishes for some very special people, Angela Mullins, Mary Knight, Sherry Howard, Edison Banks, Sue Banks, Regina Quillen, Sharon Profitt, my nephew Joshua Baker of Winchester, and our great-grandson, Seth Evan Smith, who is now eight. Seth had a Halloween party and celebrated with his family and friends in Richmond. We love him a whole bunch.
My brothers Warren and Ken were visiting in Letcher County last week. We love to see them and hope they come back soon.
Hello and lots of love to a very special lady who loves Letcher County so much, Eva Sergent, from your niece Carol and great-great-niece Kaylee Grace Baker. Kaylee is talking up a storm and would love to see you.
Get well wishes are being sent out to Dr. Arroz. We want him to know that we all love him and are praying for a healing.
Also, prayers for Doug and Jo Hall, Arthur and Joyce Sergent, Dayle Hall, Penny Adams, Paul Adams and others that are in need of a healing.
Richard and Bonnie Kincer have had a good weekend. Their daughter Rebecca and her children were in visiting. Richard had surgery a few weeks ago and is doing great.
Joann Hall and Imogene Sexton have been on a trip, but I haven’t talked to them to get the lowdown on their doings. They went to Branson.
Our deepest sympathy to the families of Terry Maggard, Paul Vanover, Thurman Hall, Barney Sexton, Gary Bentley, Sarah Belle Sergent, Verna Nease, Bubby Vance, Dicie Jenia, Flora Hampton Honeycutt, Freddie W. Maggard and Sharon Sexton.
May God bless each of these families.
