Got your long johns out yet? I’m a’thinkin’ they would feel good here today or at least this morning. May warm up later today. Hope this finds all well and staying warm.
Rose Ballard, I was so sorry to read about you losing a brother. My love, prayers and sincere sympathy to you and all your family. I, too, lost a brother this year. Never easy to lose a part of your family.
Not been the greatest week in the Engle household. I’m really not doing too bad, but Red seems to be having more and more bad days and worse nights. Oh well, what can one expect when you ain’t gittin’ any younger, plus our health issues.
Talked to Georgia this morning, said she may be over later to take me shopping as I don’t do very much driving anymore and I’m sure I won’t be driving come bad weather.
Saw Redia a few minutes. She was on her way to take Bill’s lunch to the store. She brings hers also so they can lunch together.
Haven’t heard from too many family members this week. Red has talked to Charles a few times and we did hear from Lena. Jeanie called last night. She, Phil and Christy are no doubt well on their way to Cummings, Ga., to visit Calvin, Mary, Carson and Cameron. Will be staying till Tuesday and I’m sure two little boys will be getting a lot of lovin’ and spoilin’. Calvin and Mary bought a home in Cummings. They had been in an apartment since Calvin was transferred from New York.
Oma Hatton, I really enjoy reading your article and all others too. I really enjoy putting things on paper but must apologize, I ain’t no writer but would have liked being one. Too late now.
Georgia and I just got back from shopping. We did find some bargains, my way to shop. Georgia just called after she got home. They are picking up dinners to bring over to share. What would one do without family and friends?
Still having produce from gardens? I always loved gathering the last of everything, making a big pot of vegetable soup and using whatever I could to make any and all kinds of pickles I could come up with. Some were a bit on the “guess what, or you name it” side.
Haven’t heard from Miz Catt today but she came by yesterday and mowed both front and back lawns. The Rose of Sharon is still showing some beautiful colors, but crepe myrtle is slowly but surely losing all blossoms.
Would you believe some leaves are already showing some gorgeous colors! No doubt, the mountains will soon be a riot of the most beautiful colors, such as reds, orange, tan, brown and shades of green. Would love to see them one more time, but will just have to shut my eyes and let my mind travel back in time when I last saw them.
Clara Pfistor, Michigan, it was so good talking with you and today I got a sweet letter from your sister, Jeanette Adams, Isom. So sorry to hear your sister, Kathy Hoff- man, Erlanger, isn’t feeling up to par. The three of you will always be in our hearts and prayers.
Better finish this afore food arrives. Gotta make coffee and get table ready.
Y’all have a great week, stay warm, stay well and give a great big smile and hello to everyone you might meet along the way. Love and prayers always.
