Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well and have enjoyed the pretty days. I sure am and I’ve been doing some outside work before cold weather.
Spring started on Saturday, and I say “Bring it on!” I’ve never been more ready.
Last week was really a good week. My son, Rob, spent three days with me and I certainly enjoyed it. He said I hadn’t got to do anything, and I said, “That’s what I do.”
We went to Pine Mountain Grill and had dinner with my son Billy and Joseph and Hannah. We got to see Pauline and Richard there. Rob likes them and so do I so he was real pleased.
We also saw Alicia Cook, who came over and talked with us. There were a lot of people there I didn’t know. We knew the ‘Wednesday people.’
A late happy birthday wish to Morris Maggard, who had a birthday on March 19. You owe me big time, Morris, for not telling your age. You don’t look it, but I know how old you are.
Cram Creek Church revival is going real well. I haven’t been but two nights. I don’t see well at night, so I don’t drive much at night. They are in a 30-day revival.
We sure had a fun time at Ermine Center. We had a potluck and a St. Patrick’s Day party. We were all dressed in green and had a large crowd there.
I took my grandson, Jamie Hatton, with me. He sure enjoyed it and got a lot of attention. They all said that he was good looking. I told them that he didn’t get his good looks from me, but he did get his brain from me. Of course no one believed me.
We didn’t have room or seats for everyone. Sheriff Danny Webb and Jim Ward and another man I didn’t know were there. He was an official and very nice.
I appreciated the Sexton lady telling me she enjoyed my old pictures. I’m putting some more in for you today. Send me some of your family.
Virginia Profitt called me recently. She loves living in Ashland near her son, Doug and wife, Kathy Profitt. They are good friends of mine also. I watched Doug grow up.
Tina Belle Adams is a patient in Whitesburg Hospital. I visited with her and her mom Geneva Adams recently. Geneva has been quilting. She sure is working on a pretty one right now.
Three of my sons, Astor, Billy and Larry, went to the Bristol races this weekend. They probably had a good time, as they love being together.
I went to church at Calvary Temple, and it was good seeing Ben Conard Profitt and his family and all of the other people, Bobbie and Kenny Bowman, Aggie Hatton, Pauline Yeary, Elmer and Ona Sexton, Annabel and Fred Evans, Evelyn Caudill, and all the others I didn’t get to talk to.
They had a real good service with Jabo Miles preaching and also did some great singing. I enjoyed it all.
We have a lot of people sick, and I hope that when the weather gets good they will feel better.
Madge Combs is real sick and needs everyone’s prayers.
We haven’t had a chance for much jury duty. I’ve only had three days, and I look forward to seeing everyone.
Hello Anna Watkins in Florida, Ada King in Miamisburg, Oh., and Roberta Willie in Roanoke, Va.
May God bless all of you, and try to be in church somewhere this week.
