Newmans visit western states

Ermine’s recycled teenagers weren’t slow last week, as we had a great week.

First, James and Barbara Hall spent a week in the Great Smoky Mountains with the James family reunion. They stayed at Pigeon Forge. They came home Saturday. Barbara said they had a wonderful time. (Yep! James brought me a beautiful rock back.)

Now this is a trip! Jack and Betty Newman are in Death Valley, Calif., and will be gone for at least three weeks. They will be going to Nevada (Las Vegas? Just kidding!), Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and elsewhere. They plan on site-seeing until they run into snow. They will then be heading home.

Rhuford and Coleene Hart have gone to Ohio to see their son who has had surgery and has been very sick. They may come home this week if he is better. I sure hope so, as we miss you guys when you’re gone, all of you.

Last Tuesday, a representative from the Faith Moves Mountains wellness program was at the center to tell us about the organization.

On Friday, 19 of us loaded up on two buses and went shopping in Kingsport, Tenn. We went siteseeing before eating lunch at the Golden Corral. What a lunch. It was wonderful. Then we were on the road again to shop, stopping at Kohl’s, Michael’s, Target and Ben Franklin’s.

Ben Franklin’s is a really neat store. It has most of anything you’d want and reminded me of the old Hobbs store in Whitesburg, where I worked for 33 years.

We had a wonderful trip, even if someone did tie my sweater sleeves together in a knot! I accused Jim Craft or Winford Sturgill of doing it, but never found out who really did it.

A lady told me at church last Sunday that she read my column while traveling and got a great kick out of my calling us “recycled teenagers.” She really enjoyed that.

So come on you seniors and tell me what you’ve been up to, so I can tell The
Mountain Eagle,
and no one else. Okay?

If you seniors don’t have a center, come and join ours at Ermine.

God bless until next time.
