Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well.
What do you do when you can’t think of anything to write about? You holler, “Help, help, Help!.”
I enjoyed talking to Imogene Sexton the other day. She was doing okay.
I also talked to Kathy Palumbo. She was having trouble walking, but otherwise, she said she was fine. She is a super nice person, and everyone loves her.
I’m glad my cousin, the late John Palumbo, Jr., married her and made her a part of our family.
Our good friend Mikey Bolling had a birthday on March 20. As Kevin Day says, if you know him, “You can’t help but love him.” I sure agree with that.
Also, Alma and Lester Tindal had a 44th wedding anniversary. Kevin Day also bragged on Alma’s peanut butter fudge. If you know her, I’m sure you have had some. She’s good to share, and it’s the best I have ever tasted, and she and Lester are super nice people and our friends for many years. She graduated from Whitesburg High School with my son, Robert Hatton.
Dorthy Tacket called and told me her son, Albert Tacket, had a birthday on March 18, and her daughter Jeanette Yonts has one on the 25th and the family is going to Bristol with a party for both of them at the home of another sister there, Lucille Graves. I know that family will have a ball. They always have a good time, whatever.
I visited with my brother Howard, and wife Joyce. He’s having a lot of trouble with his legs and she had a fall, and they need prayer.
Harold Stidham came while I was there. He loves Hubert and comes regularly to check on him, and we appreciate him. He’s been a friend for many years.
I just heard we lost another friend. Shelia Yonts Hogan of Cowan died. She was a daughter of the late Leonard Yonts Jr., and wife Arrie. She was a nurse here for a long time and was loved by all who knew her, and she will surely be missed. Our sympathy goes out to all her family.
Our nephew, Willie Howard of Nicholasville, had a birthday March 21. His parents were the late Tony Howard and Pina ( Fox) Gibson. A late very happy birthday, Willie, we all love you, and all of us Howards are proud of you.
I appreciate all the folks who call and tell me how much they appreciate my news. I can’t understand why. It sounds so boring to me. I think they just like me. They do like to hear about the people they grew up with. Call and give me news if you want to help me do better.
The 30-day revival has been going real well. I’ve gone to a lot of them, and lots of them are old friends of mine.
My grandson Chris Hatton has been in a fish tournament at Norris Lake over the weekend, and I haven’t heard how well he did. He has won a lot of them. I’ll find out and let you know.
He and his family were all in church. I’m proud of his family for being faithful to their church.
My sister Louise Shepherd and her three daughters, Carol Day, Pam Gardner and Shannon Eldridge, got together to celebrate Shannon’s birthday. They ate at Golden Corral and had a great time.
We have a lot of folks here under the weather with colds, flu or something.
I’ll be so glad when it gets warmer and we see more flowers and bushes blooming. Mine are beginning.
My son Rob Hatton was in Lexington this weekend taking care of his two grandsons, Will and Loren, while their parents, Dr. Kevin and wife Adrienne, are away on a business trip. Rob loves spending time with his grandchildren, and he’s good at it too. He’s been a good dad and a great son for me. All my sons are the greatest! Rob, Astor and Billy and Larry.
I hope next week I hear some good news to write about. I don’t like to be boring.
May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere if you are able — you too, Elzie Ray and Irene Hatton in Tennessee!
