Hello everyone. Hope you are all doing well and keeping cool. We have had a few showers that helped.
I enjoyed talking with a good friend, Georgia Miller in Hazard. We got to be good friends at the Veterans Center where both our husbands were patients. They passed away close together. Georgia was so good to Clyde.
I’ve been back up to the Ermine Center two days. George Fields was telling me he had surgery for an aneurism. He was doing pretty well, just having trouble breathing. It was good seeing all the senior citizens on TV. They seemed to be having a good time. I like watching the Government Channel. I know most of the people they show.
I went to the funeral of Johnny L. Sturgill of Michigan. He was one of our hometown boys. He had been gone a long time. He was 63 years old, son of the late Otis and Tootsie Sturgill. He had lots of relatives here. The preachers, Bro. John Conn and Bro. Josh Sturgill, did really well and so did the singers Tammy Adams and her sister Amy, and Tiffany Sturgill and singers from Colson Church where Bro. Josh is pastor really sang beautifully.
We are all glad Vickie Standifer is out of the hospital and doing better. We were so glad to have her back at church last Wednesday.
Louise Shepherd is back at home. She had been visiting relatives Jan and Curt Boggs.
I visited Letcher Manor Nursing Home two days last week. Earl Profitt is still a very sick man and needs everyone’s prayers. I enjoyed visiting with his wife Juanita and also Avis (Boggs) Fields. Her husband is a patient up there also. Juanita and I visited with Mandy King and some of the other patients. They all love having visitors.
Dorthy Tackett and lots of her family went to Ohio to visit their sister-in-law Mary, whom they all love. It was Pearl Noble’s birthday and Mary baked her a birthday cake. They visited Hugh Pennington and were so glad to see him.
The Master’s Harmony, Charlene Mason, John Caudill, Ray Smith and Ronnie Maggard, sang at a church there on Sunday. They all enjoyed themselves. Ricky Mason and Kim Lucas, Pearl Noble, Teresa Pease, Jennifer Holbrook, Linda Hall, Delores Holbrook, and Dorthy Tackett went. I think there were 11 of them. I’m sure that bunch enjoyed it all. Dorthy said hello to her brother Hugh Pennington and also a big hello from me too.
Is there anyone out there who would like to have a cat? I have some beautiful ones, one white with real blue eyes and one calico. They are about four months old, outside cats, but they are litter box trained. I have some more, lots more, white with black and gray on them. They are all beautiful, but I have too many. Get in touch with me if you want one or some at 633-7120.
I went to visit Juanita and Earl Profitt on Sunday and I was so glad to see the improvement in him. He was eating well and talking to me and he even waved his arm and said ‘bye, bye’ to me. I’ve been so worried about them both.
I guess my grandson Chris Hatton and his family were coming home from their vacation Sunday. It has been too quiet on this hill with them gone. I’m sure they have enjoyed themselves. Some of their friends were going with them.
It’s been good seeing Judy Fields back at our church.
Our pastor, Bro. John Conn, and Alicia were glad to have all five of their grandchildren at Sunday School on Sunday. We have such good teachers I don’t know why a lot of people don’t come to Sunday School.
I didn’t have a garden this year but thanks to my good church friends I’ve had lettuce, green onions, peas, tomatoes, green beans, and peppers. I have really appreciated it. I surely enjoyed it. Thank you all!
May God bless you all. Try to be in church somewhere. Winter will be coming before you know it.
