Hello everyone – I hope all have had a good week. It was a busy weekend. Kentucky weather is a lot warmer than Ohio weather and I do enjoy my warm weather.
Buddy and Lady are our favorite neighbor dogs. Buddy had to spend three nights in the veterinary hospital. He was having issues so John and Mike took him to the vet. The poor pup has heartworms. He was given a strong antibiotic and then a strong medicine treatment to get rid of the heartworms. He’s home and is not supposed to be doing anything. It’s hard on a dog that is so used to running around and going anywhere he wants to go. Now he has to sit in the yard and not go anywhere. Mosquitoes can cause heartworms in dogs.
Feel better wishes are being sent to Carolina Eldridge, Jeff Daniels, Stella Barnett, Barbara Caudill Halcomb, Jenny Brown and Mark Miles. I hope they are all feeling better.
We went to Long John Silver’s for lunch one day last week. I placed our order and went back to the car. When our food was ready, I went up to get it. The employee asked if I wanted any sauce and I said “Arby’s”. Oops, wrong place. The employee and a customer both laughed at me. The employee said “tarter sauce” and I said yes. It was funny.
Ella Caudill and Janet Napier took a drive to Kingdom Come State Park and then to Black Mountain. They came back across Pine Mountain. They did see a lot of bears. They took a lot of pretty photos, which were posted on social media.
I want to say hello to Charity and Jerry Hall of Columbus, Indiana. They get The Mountain Eagle every week and enjoy reading it. Charity is the sister of my aunt, Ramona Caudill. Thank you, Charity and Jerry, for reading The Mountain Eagle.
Jamie and Julie Banks of Flemingsburg and children Spencer, Ross, Myra came in to visit his parents, Millie and David Banks of Little Cowan. This visit was over the weekend of October 10. Jamie took his youngest son, Ross, deer hunting on Saturday and Sunday for youth hunt season. Ross didn’t have any luck. Millie and David had gotten two-year-old Myra earlier in the week. Myra loves to spend time with her grandparents. They all had a good weekend visit together.
Cassie Harris and Joshua Blanchard of Lexington were married on Saturday, October 17. The wedding and reception took place at the Historic Boone Tavern in Berea. The wedding was held outdoors and was very pretty. Mike and I were invited and glad to attend the festivities. I hope to have more details on the wedding for next week’s column.
Our son, Mark, was the photographer. He and the second photographer took 7015 photos. They were everywhere taking photos.
My uncle Bobby Caudill came over to visit one afternoon. He hadn’t seen our house completed. He liked the decks and the rooms. It was so nice having him visit. I learned some family history that I didn’t know.
Mike and I spent Saturday night at a Hampton Inn in Georgetown. We hadn’t stayed in a hotel since COVID 19. The employee asked me how many were staying in our room and I told her two. She said they didn’t do breakfasts at this time and she would go get it for me. I thought she was going to give us a coupon to a local restaurant but she came back with two boxes and a bag. The bag had two waters. The boxes each had a yogurt, a little orange, a blueberry muffin, and a Bob Evans sausage, cheese, and biscuit sandwich. We saved most of it for breakfast. The breakfast sandwich was good when it was heated up. The virus restrictions have affected every business.
On Sunday, Mike and I went to Ohio. We stopped at the outlet mall by Monroe, Ohio. We saw another example of the virus restrictions. There were people standing in lines outside of the stores. We had to stand in line before we were allowed in a store. After standing in line, the store didn’t have what I wanted so I didn’t stand in line for any other stores.
We were planning to meet two sons for dinner and we had plenty of time. So we drove through our old neighborhood in Englewood and took a picture of our old house. We saw the sons’ old elementary school, middle school, and high school. It was nice seeing changes and revisiting memories.
We met Mark, Brad, and Becky at a Mexican Restaurant in Eaton, Ohio. It was good spending time with them.
Mike and I went back to Monroe and spent the night with Mark and Heather. The weekend was good.
On the way home we stopped in Lexington and picked up my aunt Ramona Caudill. She had attended the wedding of her granddaughter, Cassie Harris, and had stayed with her daughter Laura Harris a few days.
