Hello everyone, hope you are doing well.
I told everyone I wouldn’t have my news in this week and I may not, but I’m going out of town for a few days to visit my son Astor “Red”. I haven’t been anywhere in a while and I’m looking forward to it. This is Thursday so the news will be short.
I enjoyed talking to my good friend Juanita Profitt the other day. She and her husband Earl were doing pretty well. She sounded real good.
Soon as she hung up, another friend, Sally Profitt, called. I said it was a day for Profitts. I sure enjoyed talking to her. It had been so long. Sally, I’m still waiting to hear the rest of the story about the wedding in Lexington. Don’t keep me in the dark. Inquiring minds need to know.
It was nice seeing Nanetta Dingus at the hospital to visit my sister Louise Shepherd. They are really good friends. Louise isn’t doing well and she and her family need prayer.
Our homecoming at church went really well, large crowds and we had enough food for our homecoming dinner to feed an army. We have good cooks; I’m not one of them I’m sorry to say.
It was so good to get back to our Wednesday Bible Study at Dairy Queen with Bro. Tony Brown. We had a good crowd there. We’ve all been missing it. I’m glad Bro. Tony is doing well.
I was sorry to hear of Ella Preston dying. She was well loved by all who knew her, especially Earl and Juanita Profitt who lived on the same road and had been neighbors for many years.
Roland Brown and wife Carol, I know you were glad to have your grandson for a week. Surely you didn’t spoil him.
I always enjoy talking to my good friend Dorthy Tacket. We’ve been friends since grade school.
Larry and Linda are back from vacation at the lake and Linda has been canning and is back at work.
I’m reminding all you Hattons again, your Hatton family reunion is Aug. 23 at Cowan Community Center. I’m looking forward to seeing all of you.
We have been getting a lot of rain. It’s helping the gardens.
Well, I’ve run out of time so may God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere if you are able.
