Hello again. I’m sorry I didn’t get anything in the paper last week, but I was out of town with my grandson’s archery team, which went to Louisville to compete in the NASP State Tournament.

My daughter Melissa and her children and I went to Pekin, Ind., to visit with family. We went to see my aunt and uncle, Glassie ‘Sister’ and her husband Junior Hall. Glassie is a very sick woman and Junior is not in very good health either. Glassie has a feeding tube and has lost a lot of weight. Please keep her in your prayers.

We had a short visit, because I have so many family members who live in Pekin that I can’t get to see all of them when I am there for a weekend. I saw quite a few relatives when my sisters and I got together at my sister Lois’s house to start working on a new quilt top. We are making one called Amish String Star, which also has a Log Cabin border around it. It is going to be a challenge as we’ve never done any paper piecing before. We have other family members who are making this top with us.

I also went to visit my niece Stacey Purlee and her husband Steve, who have a farm. They have cattle and lots of calves this time of year. They also have two chicken houses, and a few hogs.

Steve’s dad has a dairy farm, and we took the children to watch the milking. That was a very educational trip for all.

I had a very eventful weekend, and enjoyed every minute of it. I have such a wonderful family.

I had company in for the weekend, my niece Stacey Purlee and her son Quenton, my sister Ruby Bentley, my niece Jasmine and her husband Isaac and their two children. Little Isaac and Kya wanted to be here for our Breakfast with the Bunny. We had a wonderful weekend and the weather was beautiful. Saturday evening the children all played outside until nearly dark while the adults sat on the porch.

I can’t wait until the weather is warmer and we can be outside more.

I got a call from a good friend of mine, Shelly Cantrell Mullins, who said that her mom, Kathy Cantrell has breast cancer and is taking radiation treatments. She is in Covington at her son Kelly’s house. Please remember Kathy in your prayers.

I hope you are feeling better, Kathy. We will be praying for a quick recovery for you.

The Hemphill Community Center had its Breakfast with the Easter Bunny last Saturday. The children loved seeing the Easter Bunny, and everyone enjoyed a breakfast of gravy and biscuits and all the fixings.

We had a great turnout. They mostly came a few at a time, but all of a sudden we were swamped with people, but that’s how we like it. There was an egg hunt afterward, and it was a pretty day for it.

East KY Tyme will be playing at the center on April 5.

Pee-wee basketball is in full force at the elementary schools, and I really enjoy watching these children play, some for the first time. It won’t be long until baseball at the Fleming-Neon field will be going strong. I think this is my favorite sport.

Tammy Adams would like to thank the schools for taking part in Pajama Day and raising money for Relay for Life, and is hoping that more schools will participate. Fleming-Neon raised $226.87, Cowan Elementary raised $240.15, McRoberts raised $63, and Burdine Elementary raised $275. For more information on this, please contact Tammy at 606-855-4067.

Andrea Meade’s dad, Robert Mullins, got his test results back, and they were all good. This goes to show that prayers are answered.

Jason Adams is home and doing pretty well now. I don’t see him that often, but I ask his mother-in-law about him when I see her. Jason, just remember that even if we don’t see you, we are still praying for a quick recovery, and hope you are feeling better.

My best friend, Yvonne Bentley, is doing fair with her surgery. Please give her a call and check on her as she has been slightly depressed because she has to stay in the bed for several weeks, and can’t get out and move around on these pretty days.

Chin up, Yvonne, you will be feeling better soon, and then we will go to dinner and shopping together.

Thanks for reading my article, and hopefully I will be able to put another one in next week.

Remember, if you would like to rent the Community Center, call me at 606-855- 4191.

May God bless you and keep everyone safe.
