Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well and keeping warm. It has been so cold I’ve been in hibernation and just get out when I or my critters need food.
When they mention snow, I run to the store, and so does everyone else. The stores were packed with people. It’s a good time for their business.
I sure do enjoy shopping at our new Save-A-Lot. It is so nice. Kathy Mullins, you and your workers are doing a great job.
I talked with my cousin Dorothy Miles recently. They had spent Christmas with their son Gary in Georgetown. Their children were all there. Heather and her husband Scotty live in Arizona. They are expecting a baby in May. Their son Neil and his girlfriend went there from North Carolina, and the grandchildren, Morgan, Matthew and also Sarah. She said they had a wonderful Christmas.
I got a call from Alpha Sexton recently. She said she and her husband Marvin were doing well, but were snowed in and have a hard time getting out. She asked about Ruby Combs. She’d heard that she went on tour to New York and had fallen and broke her hip. She thought maybe I could tell her about it. They are relatives. I haven’t heard, but will try to find out about it. I hope that she is doing well.
We finally got to have church January 6. We had a good crowd and a great service.
It’s looking now like we will all be snowed in again. The snow keeps coming down. It’s a pretty snow, but I hope it doesn’t keep hanging on.
I talked to my son Rob recently and they have snow also. The last one missed them, though.
I hope next week will be good, as we are planning a reunion for the Hatton clan on Jan. 16.
We may have to put it off if it’s too bad. We’ve been looking forward to it.
I saw Everett and Louise Joseph the other day. She had been to see the doctor, and she looked well. I hadn’t seen her in awhile.
It seems like the only time I get to see people is in the stores. It’s one of the reasons I go.
It was good talking to my friend Ruth Ann Brown recently. I hadn’t had a chance to talk to her in a long time. She has been spending time with her grandson Travis Morton. He has been so sick. He’s home now, and has been home since Christmas. She said he was doing some better, but has a long way to go. Please keep him in your prayers, and also his family.
Our sympathy goes out to those who have lost loved ones through all of this bad weather. It is still so cold.
I was sorry to hear of Bill Blair dying. Our sympathy goes out to Donna Sue and their family.
I feel so caged in when I can’t get out, even if I don’t need to.
Emma Lou, I hope your arm is feeling better. I’m glad we still get your news.
It’s been too bad out to gather news, so I’ll make up for it when the snow melts.
May God bless all of you. Stay warm and try to go to church somewhere this week.
