Hello. The month of April is going by quickly. I do enjoy the lovely weather we have had. The rain hasn’t been bad, as I know the flowers and gardens need the water. I am looking forward to the flowers of May.
Anna and Duane Yonts of Little Cowan went to Dahlonega, Georgia, to attend a surprise birthday party. Their son, Roger, was surprised with a birthday celebration for his 60th birthday. Roger’s daughters and son, Jessica Beardon, Beth Hawk, and Wesley Yonts, put the party together. From the pictures I saw, Roger was surprised. A good time was had by all.
Lena Brashears was in the hospital last week. She’s now home and feeling better.
Kendall Ison fell off a retaining wall this past week. He broke his leg and is in the Pikeville Medical Center. He has had one surgery and will have another surgery when the swelling goes down. The family and the doctor have requested that visitors be limited so Kendall can rest. If you would like to send Kendall a card, please send it to: Kendall Ison, 5431 Highway 931 South, Whitesburg, KY 41858.
Happy birthday wishes are being sent to my aunt, Susan Stamper of Lexington. Her birthday is April 25.
Randy Brown has three new baby sheep. Two of them are twins. They are so adorable looking.
My great-nephew, Myles Marr of Berea, received an award from STLP (Student Technical Leadership Program). His award was for Live Productions Videography. Myles is a sixth grader at Model Laboratory in Richmond. Myles is the son of Janis and Michael Marr of Berea. His grandparents are John and Faye Campbell of Whitesburg and Ron and Debbie Marr of Elizabethtown. Glenn Brown of Whitesburg is Myles’s great-grandfather.
Six daughters and one son of the late Nelson and Phoebe Fields of Little Cowan got together for a family Easter celebration on Saturday. Evelyn Cosgriff, Eula Caudill, Juanita Caudill, Janet Napier, Libby Honeycutt, Helen Roberts and Rex Fields along with their families met at the home of Janet and Johnny Napier. They had “the best of times”. There was a big Easter egg hunt out in the yard. The photos that were shared on Facebook showed a lot of good family time.
Janis, Michael, Anna, Myles, Addison, and Tucker Marr, all of Berea, came in to visit John and Faye Campbell for Easter weekend. Also eating Easter dinner with John and Faye along with the Marr family were Mark Miles, Martha and Mike Wenning. It was enjoyable spending time with family.
I ended up with a virus last week and it hasn’t been fun. Loved ones in Ohio have been dealing with it also. I slept downstairs so Mike wouldn’t catch it, but that didn’t work. At least he wasn’t as bad as I was. For me, it lasted about five days.
We have a shelf for ‘knickknacks’ above the couch. I was asleep on the couch in the wee hours of the morning on Friday when I woke up because something landed on my side. There was a jade Viking ship with a broken mast (from the move) on that shelf, and the broken mast fell off the ship. Luckily it landed on my side and not near my eye. Needless to say, it wasn’t a restful night after that as I kept expecting other things to fall. I don’t know why this happened in the middle of the night. The phrase “things that go bump in the night” kept going through my mind.
My social media quote of the week is attributed to Michael Kornfield. “If we all do one random act of kindness daily, we might set the world in the right direction.”
