Once again, here we are with snow on the ground, but not as much as we have had.
We have been wanting to go to Indiana for our youngest granddaughter’s birthday; Michaela Dawn Fields will be 12 years old March 9. She is the daughter of our youngest son, Chad. She has two older sisters, Ashley and Rebecca. If the weather stays bad, we will be going there much later.
I was glad to see my two great-nieces’ picture in the paper last week, Tonya and Alexis Fields. I also wanted to tell their Aunt Jo that I enjoy her column.
Thanks, Stanley Pack, for your comment in Speak Your Piece. Keep reading, my friend. I hope you are having a good winter and staying warm.
I enjoy all of the articles in the paper, and am glad The Mountain Eagle allows people to speak their mind.
Our church is having an apple pie sale today, March 3. They are $1 each, and usually they are real good. I have sold 60 of them so far.
Audrey wanted to tell everyone that everything is okay! Keep Audrey and Charles Hammonds, Bill and Agnes Maggard, Jeff Caudill, Delmar Fields, Barbara Ann Boggs, and Mary Ann Maggard in your prayers, as well as the lost and homeless.
My sister, Kathy, and Ed Wolfe are doing much better and are out and about.
Also, my brother, Archie, has been stopping by and visiting when he is out and about.
I haven’t seen Irene and Eugene Day (my aunt and uncle) out very much in this bad weather. Hopefully they are staying warm. It won’t be long until spring and Eugene, as well as others, will be planting their gardens.
I wanted to say hi to Eugene’s sister, Georgette Sims in Lexington, and also to Nezalene and Eugene Day in Seymour, Ind. I hope all are well.
Also, a big hello and prayers to Burdene and Virginia Gilley and Arthur Pendleton in Columbus, Ind.
Shelby Bockover in Greensburg, Ind., a big hello to you and Tommy. Hopefully this snow hasn’t got you down.
If there’s anyone else I forgot to mention, I say hello to all of you.
Maybe Oma Hatton and I will see each other at jury duty next week if the weather isn’t bad. We have only been the first time, and that was in January.
Some of the birthdays this month are: Michaela Fields of Greensburg, Ind., March 9; Rich Polly on March 26; Herb Fields on March 27; Audrey Maggard Hammonds of North Vernon, Ind., and Archie Joe Maggard of Columbus, Ind. (now in Iraq, and living in Texas), who is the son of Bill and Agnes Maggard; Billy Ray Maggard of Columbus, Ind.; Khaley Maggard, 11 years old of Nashville, Ind., on March 14, and is the daughter of Bill and Paula Maggard and the granddaughter of Bill and Agnes Maggard; Jamie Maggard on March 9, who is the son of Mary Ann Brock Maggard of Big Cowan and the late Curtis Maggard.
I hope all of you enjoy your day, and Herb doesn’t eat too much chocolate cake!
It seems like this is the month for Maggard family birthdays, and they are all my relatives.
God bless each and every one of you!
