Friday night I had a sleepover at Coolie and Janice’s. We were going to Indiana to a Baker/Diamond family reunion. We left about 6:30 and drove to Shoals, Ind. Those of our Letcher County family going were Coolie, Janice, Kathy, Jimmy, Nikkia, Brook, Katina, Ashley and myself. My brothers Ken and Warren Douglas and Warren’s two grandsons, Jagger and Graeson, also went. We saw most of the families of our Aunt Sarah Diamond and Uncle Dewey Baker’s families. Minnie Ellen Short was there, and it’s always good to see her. After the reunion we came to Louisville and spent the night, and had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. The food was delicious but the service was very poor. We shopped until 6 on Sunday and then came home tired but happy.
Friday, the Colson Center had as its guests the Colson Head Start. The children had a good time, and they looked so cute in their matching shirts. I enjoyed talking to Ms. Shirley. She enjoys the children and is wonderful with them.
I talked to Mildred Clark, Yvonne Tackett, Ella Sparks, Lettie Hall and the young lady Eva Spicer Webb this week. Eva is such a nice lady we always have a good talk.
Faith Independent Baptist church had a revival last week and first part of this week. The singing and preaching were so uplifting.
