Hello everyone, I hope all had a good week. The Sunday snow was great for making a snowman, so Mike and I made one. Then John made one. The Phillip Little family made several snowmen and a snow teepee igloo. They had some nice photos that they shared on social media. I’m sure there were other snowmen on Little Cowan. It was a good time.
I’m proud that one son and two daughters-in-law have had both of their COVID vaccines. I’m hoping we get our vaccines this month.
CAT is still entertaining us. I bought a container of cat treats which I opened and gave CAT a few. I put the closed container on the table and did some laundry. Suddenly I heard a crash and CAT had knocked the treat container off the table and it opened up. There were treats everywhere. I was getting them up as fast as I could and CAT was gobbling treats as fast as he could. It was like a kid with unlimited candy. CAT didn’t get any more treats for a couple days. The treats now stay in the pantry where CAT can’t get to them.
We drove by Randy and Eula Mae’s place and saw five baby lambs. I saw four the first time and later saw five. I love seeing the baby lambs. I will look every time we go by to see if there are any more.
I was talking with the oldest son on Friday as he had called me. I could hear people around and he had to pause to talk to someone. I asked him if he was at work. He said he was. Then I asked, “Why are you working on Saturday?” He had the greatest response: “It must be nice to be retired as this is Friday.” I was surprised to find out it was Friday. Laughter from all of us happened.
I’m sending hellos to Doris Jean Banks and Carol Caudill of Little Cowan. Also to Linda Lucas of Kingsport, Tenn., and Verna Rayburn of Liberty.
I did send messages to Frieda Johnson, Ella Caudill, Libby Honeycutt, and Janet Napier to see if they had any news. No one has been going out to do anything or see anyone.
February 8 marked the 15th anniversary of my dad’s death. It seems like a long time ago and at the same time, it seems like yesterday. You always carry your parents in your heart. Miss you Dad, Dr. Varon Campbell.

This week’s quote is attributed to Vista M. Kelly. “Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things but just look what they can do when they stick together.”
