Hello everyone — I hope all are doing fine and dandy. I’m planning to enjoy all of the warm weather this week as next week won’t be as warm. I think fall weather is about to get real official.
I’m sending a happy birthday wish to Mike. His birthday is on October 14 and I’m so glad he’s part of my life.
One birthday I left off my list is John Honeycutt, who celebrated a birthday on October 11, 2021.
Feel Better Wishes are being sent to Janice Wolod; Randy Brown; James Johnson; Harper Scroggins; Sydney Scroggins; Lori Scoggins; Emma Phillips; Emily Kate Butler; and Janet Napier.
Last Friday I had lunch at Doris Banks’s house. Those attending the luncheon were Doris Banks, Anna Yonts, Carol Caudill, Randy Brown, Kathy LaMonte, and me. It was a good lunch. Afterwards Doris, Anna, Carol, Kathy, and I played dominoes. I enjoy these times with family.
My cousin Kathy LaMonte of Clinton, Mississippi is still enjoying her time in Kentucky. Last week we went to the General Store at Partridge. We enjoyed that trip and bought various items there. I did sample the fudge, which was good.
Over the weekend Kathy and I went to the fall festival at Shekinah Village. That was a good time. The festival was drive-through because of COVID. Even without having kids with us we had a good time. We received a hot dog lunch, stuffed animals, apples with caramel, cookies, coffee, cotton candy, and a pumpkin. We have plans to go to this festival next year.
Our son Greg Wenning came in for the weekend. It was good to spend time with him.
On Saturday evening we did a trip to Town Hill for a cookout. Those participating were John Campbell, Greg Wenning, Kathy LaMonte, Mike Wenning, and me. John’s dog, Buddy, went with us also.
As we were going up the hill, Kathy said something moved in the back of the side-by-side. It turned that a bag had fallen off. Mike stopped and Greg grabbed the bag that had fallen off and put it in the back of the side-by-side. We continued onward and made it the spot where we were going. When I looked at the bag, it was ruined. It had dragged and the entire bottom was gone. This was a thermal bag that I just got this summer and a cousin had put our names on it. I really liked this bag.
Not only was the bag ruined on the outside, there was a mess on the inside. The mustard bottle lid had come off with the dragging and there was mustard everywhere. The pickle relish bottle was also open. I had put a container of vegetables and dip in that bag and they were all over the inside of the bag. The one package of cookies was opened and ruined. The other package of cookies was safe but the cookies were broken into small pieces. There was a bag of chips missing. The hotdog buns package was covered with mustard gunk but the buns were still good. It was a mess.
John and Buddy pulled up as we were emptying my bag. We told John what happened and he said as he was coming up the hill he found a bag of chips and a tablecloth. I hadn’t even noticed that the tablecloth was missing. I’m glad John was behind us to grab the things we lost. The tablecloth had been Mom’s and she always used it on picnics, and I’m glad it’s not lost.
It was an adventure to make hot dogs over a fire. Luckily the night on Town Hill was beautiful.
On Monday morning, I was checking out social media and I discovered that a friend had passed away. I had worked with his wife in Wyoming and enjoyed time with them. It’s a sad time for the family. Michael Fromm, you will be missed. Condolences are being sent to Lori Fromm.
Kathy and I spent Monday shopping in Wise, Virginia. We did get some nice things. I’m working on Christmas shopping and I’m making progress. Afterwards we went to Eolia and went through the mission store. I’ve been buying fabric pieces there.
CAT was sitting on the porch ledge one afternoon. He noticed something on the screen and climbed up on the screen. The screen came loose and fell out of the window. CAT caught himself and didn’t go out with the screen. Mike caught CAT so he wouldn’t escape. CAT ended up in the house while Mike fixed the screen. It’s an adventure with CAT.
On Monday evening I came in after visiting John and I couldn’t find CAT. I knew he was inside as I had put him in before I left. I checked the kitchen, bedroom, and even the bathroom. I went upstairs and checked the loft and didn’t see CAT. I came back downstairs and searched the house again. Finally I heard the tinkle of his cat tags. I went back upstairs and turned the lights on and couldn’t find CAT. I looked behind the bed and then I looked in the corner. There’s a pile of quilts in the corner and CAT was sleeping on top of them. CAT finds a different sleeping place every time. At least I found him which was a relief.
Laura Harris and Landon Harris of Lexington came in for the weekend. They visited her parents, Bob and Ramona Caudill of Little Cowan. Ramona went back to Lexington with Laura for an appointment.
Bob Caudill and Kathy LaMonte visited with Bessie Day, Wayne and Sarah Day, and Randy Day of Little Cowan. They looked at photos and talked about football. They had a wonderful visit.
Sarah is an amazing artist and has given Kathy beautiful paintings and painted rocks.
The social media quote of the week is “No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.”
