Old Man Winter not far away

Big Cowan

Hello! How is everyone this week? I am as fine as frog’s hair split three ways.

I hope everyone is enjoying the rain and this beautiful weather. Nice temperatures. My kind of weather and it won’t be long until fall is here, then Old Man Winter isn’t far away. We can wait on him for a little bit. Enjoy while we can.

Went to Hazard last week to see Mary Ann Maggard. She was asleep. The nurse said she would tell her we had stopped by.

We stopped at Ponderosa to eat and ran into Jan Rae Kimberlin Halloway. She had been to the doctor and got a good report. She was with Carol Lewis of Cumberland. It’s always good to see both ladies and chat for a little bit.

Birthdays this past week were: Faye Boggs Martin, Aug. 16, and Ellen King Caudill and Teresa Miles, Aug. 18. Late happy birthday wishes to them all, and I wish them many more.

Birthday wishes for the rest of the month are: Roger Eldridge, Aug. 24; our son Mile Fields will be 41 Aug. 26 (man that makes me feel old — I was 20 years old when he was born); Samantha Nicole Callihan, 23 years old Aug. 27; Thula Ison, Aug. 28. I hope you all have a great day and share it with your families.

Sadly, one year ago on Aug. 24 Carl Mullins died. He is sadly missed by wife Pat and daughter Carla Maggard and the rest of his family, friends and neighbors. We will be thinking about you on this day.

Carla needs a knee replacement and her husband Tony has back problems. Her mother Pat Mullins possibly had a light heart attack, her mother-in-law Mary Ann Maggard is still in the hospital, and her brotherin law Joe Maggard just needs prayer, as all of them do. Also, daughter Destiny.

My husband and I had cake with my sister Kathy and brother-in-law Eddie Wolfe on her birthday and had a good time.

My brother Archie Fields went back to Pikeville the other day for his checkup and got a good report. Hopefully he is on the mend.

My husband took Archie out to have the oil changed on his van. I took the car out for an oil change, and we ate breakfast at Dairy Queen and had a good visit. Archie bought our breakfast. It is just good for him to be out of the house for a little while, plus it gave Margaret a little time to visit with her sister Edra Mae Pack and other relatives.

Kim Fields Hoskins has been having stomach problems. Hopefully she will be well soon. She is Archie’s youngest daughter and lives in Manchester.

Seems like everyone has health problems around the same time. Hard to keep up with everyone.

Eugene Day has been having trouble with his blood pressure and has been to the doctor for an infected cyst on his back. Keep him and Irene in your prayers. She has a lot of pain and arthritis in her neck. Hopefully they will both be doing better soon.

Agnes Maggard is still having problems with her leg. She has to have a bone sensor on her leg at night, and Bill is about the same. They still need prayer.

I asked Agnes about Arthur Pendleton and she said that he is doing well and takes someone’s kids to school every day and picks them up. Hello, Arthur!

My neighbor Brack Sexton and my son Mike picked me a real pretty mess of halfrunner green beans. They were really good. Thanks, guys.

Cody Ison also had a birthday on Aug. 15. He is 18 years old and a son of Paul and Michelle Murphy of Cowan. Happy birthday to him.

The Haymond Pentecostal Church will be having a revival Aug. 26–Sept. 2 at 6 p.m. nightly with different preachers and singers. Everyone is welcome.

Well folks, I am out of things to write about, so until next time, have a good week.

Call someone and tell them you are thinking about them.

I wish I could call Mrs. Ella Preston and tell her I have been thinking about her. I so hope she is reading this. I miss seeing her.

Attend the church of your choice, smile and the world smiles with you, frown and your world turns upside down. It takes less muscles to smile than it does to frown.

Have a wonderful week and count your blessings.
