Power saw was needed at Paul Miles’s birth


Hello, everyone, hope you are all doing well and survived Halloween. I’m sure the children will have enough candy to last a long time.

When I heard Paul Miles’s birthday is on Halloween, I remembered the night he was born. His dad, Glen Miles, had to use a power saw to clear the road to get his wife to the hospital in time. My sister, Betty Tyree, and I had to move a small tree to get home from church. I don’t think people are blocking the roads much now – at least I hope not. It’s very dangerous.

I enjoyed talking with Barbara Bates a few days ago. She wanted me to tell everyone there will be a Christmas bazaar at the Whitesburg Methodist Church on Thursday, Nov. 8. Everyone try to come and see all the talent of all the people who I’m sure have worked hard. I hope it does as good as ours at Whitco Pentecostal Faith Church. It was fantastic! Our pastor, Bro. John Conn, and the whole church offer our appreciation and thanks to al the people who worked so hard and to all the folks who came and bought. It went beyond what we thought it would do. We had a lot of beautiful things and food also.

Belated happy birthday wishes to Eva Sergent on Oct. 13. She said she had a great birthday and got 48 cards, which she really appreciated. I was glad to hear from her. She hadn’t been feeling well, but was doing better. She told me to tell everyone hello for her.

I hadn’t heard my friend, Beulah (Wilson) Back of Jenkins, formerly of Blackey, had died until I read it in the Pikeville paper. I went to school with her at Blackey and we spent lots of time together at Letcher Manor. My sympathy goes out to her family. I knew her parents, Elzie and Liza Wilson, and all her brothers and sisters; most of them are deceased now.

Louise Shepherd and I visited my husband, Clyde, at the Veterans Center in Hazard on Saturday. He was about the same. We ate lunch at Ponderosa and ran into Kathleen and Lucky Sexton and had a nice visit with them. She looked good and said she was doing well. We ran into Brenda Adams and her sister, Belinda Conn, and her daughter, Tonda, and her children. It’s good meeting friends.

I just found out the winner of our door prize at our Christmas bazaar was Wanda Caudill of Whitesburg. Our congratulations, Wanda! Everyone loves to be a winner. I appreciate my friend, Shirley Breeding, coming. She’s such a nice person to put up with me on our trips to Hazard. She is a very busy lady.

I haven’t been out and about much. Maybe I’ll have some interesting news next week.

May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week. Remember the tent revival near Rite Aid drugstore.
