Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well and enjoyed Memorial Day.
I think this last Mother’s Day was my best ever. Lots of pretty flowers and cards from all my boys, Rob, Astor, Billy and Larry. Astor “Red” and his wife, Rosie, came from Ashland and took me out to a delicious dinner at Parkway. I got to see so many friends there. I can’t even mention all of them. There were so many people out, we almost didn’t find a place. The food was good and all the company even better. It was all so enjoyable. I can hardly wait for the next one.
I also had a later Mother’s Day dinner party with Sandra Cook and all her friends and their mothers. That was really fun! Those attending were Willie Jo Hall and her daughter Kim and Kim’s daughter, Sue Webb and her daughter, Hedy Adams and her daughter Melissa, Bonnie Roark and her daughter, Pam Anderson and her daughter and her baby, and Maggie Cook. I hope I didn’t miss anyone. I’m real good at doing that!
I attended James Breeding’s funeral. It was a beautiful service. So many people were there I won’t start calling names. I was so impressed that so many of the workers and friends from the Veterans Administration Center were there. They are all so thoughtful and caring. Fine people!
I think I told you last week I had a new greatgrandbaby so I won’t repeat it. I just did, didn’t I? Her name is Elise Cassidy Hill, beautiful of course. Parents are Rocki and Matt Hill.
Dorthy Tackett called this morning to tell me another one of our Marlowe friends died, Charles Page, brother of the late Wid Page and Margaret Page Caudill and another sister, Bertha. Don’t know her married name.
My son, Larry, had hip replacement surgery Thursday at Pikeville Hospital. It was a new procedure but Dr. Pugh said it went excellently and he would probably come home Friday. That was the doctor’s first time to do that kind, and we are sure glad it went so well. I was real worried.
I appreciate my brother, Coach Hillard Howard, and my pastor, Bro. John Conn, for being there with us. It meant a lot to me.
I had a nice little visit with my good friend, Shirley Niece, the other day. I sure enjoyed sitting and talking to her and her husband, Carfa, and their granddaughter, Katy Allen. She is so pretty.
My sister, Betty Tyree, and I visited Dorthy and Glen Miles on Cowan. Their home is so interesting. They have sure worked hard on that place. I love it. I loved hearing the chickens cackling and crowing, and playing with their cat. We lose track of time when we go there and stay too long. We did help her break up her beans, so she will let us come back. We enjoyed seeing their son, Paul David Miles, and his son, Tyler, and watching them work.
Late happy birthday to my little sister, Judy Greene in Frankfort. We had a long talk on her birthday.
Hello, Anna Watkins in Florida. I’m thinking about you today and the good time we had at Carr Creek Lake before our hair turned gray.
May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week.
