Greetings from a sunny cold day in Lorain, Ohio. Hope this finds all well and staying warm. We really haven’t had a lot of snow, but shor ‘nuff have had some bitter cold and ferocious winds. I’m really looking forward to some warm spring sunshiny weather.
Red and I are still on the puny list. I am doing quite a bit with my arm but there’s lots I just can’t manage to do right. I’m really working on it. Red’s shingles are still very visible and his right eye stays red and swollen. Some days he seems to be feeling better and the next he spends most of the day in bed. We want to say “thank you” to all who have sent cards, called and kept us in your prayers. I do promise I will write soon, I’m practicing some every day, slow process as my hand and arm get tired.
Mildred, I forgot to say thanks for the gum, Beeman’s, Blackjack and Cloves. Those really take me back in time and there was one other I always liked, Teaberry, remember that? Haven’t been able to find any in several years, also thank you for the recipe. Soon!
I want to send a big howdy to a special group of people whom I consider good friends, Billy C. and Eva Elkins in Louisville. Hmmm, seems I heard that name recently, now let me ponder awhile. Oh yes, now I recollect, it was from Pam Walker at The Mountain Eagle who had informed me that a Billy Elkins had paid for my year’s subscription to The Mountain Eagle. Know anything about that? How very thoughtful and kind of you. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart, that is something I will never forget.
Also a howdy to the following, Jack D. and Bell Sumpter in Asheville, N.C., Sandra Moser (hope I got last name right) in Little River, S.C., L.T. Miller in Belva,W.Va., Larry and Margarette Jones in Otisco, Ind., Darrell and Joyce Fields in Jacksonville, N.C., Cody and Dottie Austin in Troy, Ala., Carlos and Judy Brown in Lexington, and Lillian Buford in Lexington. I do hope everyone is well and I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone at Pine Mountain Grill in May. OK?
Did you have a happy Christmas, hope you were good and didn’t end up with a lump of coal in your stocking. Ours didn’t go as I had planned but it was a good one. All our family came by, children, grands and greats.
Just listened to the weather forecast seems a winter storm is heading our way with snow accumulations from two to eight inches, depending on the area.
I’m waiting for two addresses now that I’m beginning to write a bit (not too good, I have to admit), Mary from Columbus, Ohio, and the lady from near Fort Knox.
Hey, Ava and Don Blair, I do hope you are both well and, Ava, so happy for you now that your treatments are over and you will be in my prayers that there won’t be a necessity for anymore.
Jeannie called. She’s really been having a rough time, please keep her in your prayers.
Just made Catharine some salmon cakes. She bought a can and had forgotten how to make them. I haven’t tried one yet, maybe before she gets here or maybe not.
Hello and thank you to Bobby Joe and Madonna Pass in Indiana. Red and I have been missing going to church so I put the CD’s on and we have some good singing. I just love my gospel CD’s, thank you very much.
Hello to all our families and good friends and wishing all a happy Valentine’s Day, love and prayers to all.
