Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the pretty weather while it’s good.
They are telling us snow is coming. They could be wrong and I hope they are. Snow is pretty and I love to watch it snow, but I hate being shut in, even if I’m not planning on going out.
I went to Dairy Queen last Sunday after Sunday school. I was craving a milkshake, hadn’t had one in a long time and hadn’t even thought about it. When I started to pay for it, she said it’s already paid for by the lady behind you. I turned around and saw a pretty lady. Thank you so much, Judah Niece, one of our Sunday school teachers and a very good one. She’s a big help to our kids and so is her husband, Bro. Jamie Niece, one of our preachers. We all love them.
Sandra Hatton had a birthday January 25 and she and her husband Bill Hatton and I went to Pine Mountain Grill and saw a lot of friends there and of course I loved that.
I love people and don’t get to see many. I spend most of my time at home and enjoying my puppy “Susy”. She’s good company and follows every step I take. I think she likes me.
My sister Judy Greene came in for a visit and took me and my sister Betty Tyree all over the place, to Dairy Queen and saw lots of folks and then to Howard’s Carpet to visit our brother Charles and our brother John Howard and everything who came in. We then went to Cram Creek Church and saw a lot of friends there and really enjoyed it. Their pastor is Bro. John Sizemore.
Then after church she took us two old sisters to the hospital to visit Joyce Howard, who was a patient there, and also the daughter of Kim and Tim Lucas was there. I hadn’t seen her in a long time. Her name is Kaci Lucas. She had surgery and wasn’t feeling a bit good. Her dad Tim was with her and we met a bunch of people outside, Paul David Miles and some more that we know.
We made it home at 11 o’clock and I fell into bed and rested up. It took all night and the next day to do it. Judy is 26 years younger than me. I don’t think she was tired, but it was a great day of us. That was like a day of Rose Ballard! I guess I may not get out much.
They are saying we will be getting snow and so I will be staying in and eating a lot and talking on the phone. I don’t like to work much and so I don’t.
I hear from sons Rob and Astor a lot and I sure enjoy that. I tell them it’s almost like a visit.
A big hello to Vickie Underwood, who reads The Eagle every week. I always look for the school pictures Bennett Welch puts in. I always know most of them. I saw my son Bill and wife Sandra were in it last week. I’m sure she sees some that she knows. Vickie moved away to Ohio when she was young, but she has a lot of relatives here, all the Hattons, and she comes to all our reunions.
I got a call today from my sister Joann Brown. She calls every day and I love it. I look forward to it. She talked about her little dog. I think everyone should have a dog. They don’t talk back to you and don’t disagree. My husband Clyde loved hunting and kept a lot of hunting dogs. Some were beagles and after he passed I missed the dogs. He gave some of his big hunting dogs to his friends who hunted. I kept the others until they passed and we have a hillside full of graves.
We have pretty sunshine today, but it’s so cold.
A big hello to all my friends. I haven’t heard anything from Dorthy Tacket. I hope she and her sister Linda Hall are doing O.K.
I guess I’d better get up and start doing something. I always have things to do, but I don’t always get around to it .
May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere if you are able. Your friends would love to see you there.
