Summer officially got here June 21, and we have really hit a hot and dry spell. The dryer weather gave those who were cutting hay a few days to get it cut, bailed, and put away.
Dennis Blair, Rodney Ison and Jerry Adams have been busy working in hay.
Lots of neighbors have taken their summer vacations already. David and Denise Mullins, Mike and Verlene Eldridge and Nicholas, all recently spent a week at Myrtle Beach, S.C., and reported having a good time. They missed Monique, who had to work that week, so she and her husband weren’t able to go.
Blair Branch Church had a large crowd attending the memorial meeting on Sunday. We had a good service and good food afterward. Many families attended in memory of their loved ones who were members there.
Ernie and Janie Caudill had some of their family visiting over the weekend. Wilgus Pridemore and his wife were among the visitors.
Ivan and Freda Adams had her brother, Bartley Breeding of Florida, visiting with them last week. He was also going to Ohio to visit his brother and sister, T.R. Breeding and Evita, and their families, before heading back to Georgia to visit his daughter, then on home to Florida.
Belated birthday wishes to Mary Helen Blair, whose birthday was June 19, and to Stevie Daniels Adams on June 18.
We hope that Owen Amburgey is feeling better. He had been having problems with his legs. We missed him at church, Sunday.
Sunday, Verlon and Tim Breeding went by the nursing home to visit June Breeding. Hopefully she was feeling better. We were there to see Bob’s aunt, Hazel Adams, who was having a good day that day.
Hazel’s great-grandson, Ethan Combs of Lexington, had been visiting his Papaw Johnny Combs and Aunt Sandy Hall, while here in Letcher County.
That’s it for now, except that we’re glad that Bill and Wanda Maggard of Sycamore Loop are both home now, and hopefully feeling better. They had both been in the hospital in Lexington recently.
Also, Ila Smith has been having health problems.
