Sitting outside is now daily routine


Hello everyone – I do believe that the warmer weather will be arriving and staying. I am tired of the cold spells we’ve had. Hopefully the warmer weather will slow down the coronavirus also. I’m tired of not seeing people, especially our sons.

I hope all the moms had a happy Mother’s Day. It’s good to have a designated day but every day is mother’s day. I did enjoy seeing pictures that different moms and children posted.

Lannie Day, of Little Cowan, passed away on May 2, 2020. He was the son of Bessie Day and the late Jack Day of Little Cowan. He is survived by his mother, a son David, and three brothers (Wayne of Mary Esther, Fla.; James of Columbus, Ohio; and Randy of Little Cowan). He had one grandchild, Adelyn.

Lannie is missed by his family and friends.

On May 6, 2020, the City of Whitesburg sent out a Facebook message saying “Until further notice, The City Of Whitesburg Municipal Pool will remain closed.” I hope the pool gets to open this year.

I have written a lot of letters during this quarantine, and I have received a few letters and cards back. It’s so nice to get mail. I may write more later this week. I will probably need to go into the post office to get more stamps. I am there quite often.

I ordered masks for John, Mike, and me. I have worn mine into a store. Mike doesn’t go into a store if I’m there as there’s a limit on people allowed. Starting on May 11, 2020, masks are highly recommended for all stores. We’re prepared.

Michael Campbell of Newport came in to see his dad John Campbell and his grandpa, Glen Brown. It was a quick trip. We did do social distancing.

John, Mike and I spend warm afternoons sitting in the sun and shade. I don’t go out to sit if it’s cold or raining. On those days, they’re usually sitting on the porch. It’s part of our daily routine.

It was a slow week for us. We didn’t do much. One thing we do miss is going places. We miss getting in the vehicle and going someplace we haven’t been in a while or to someplace new. We do take our quarantine seriously.

The Social Media quote is attributed to Audrey Hepburn, “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”
