Isn’t spring wonderful? It brings warm sunshine, green grass, colorful flowers, singing birds, flowers and cousins!
Seen on Cowan recently have been Roger and Tracy Yonts of Alabama; Edwin Caudill of Virginia; Mike and Martha Wenning of Ohio; Thelma and Glennon Ison of Flemingsburg; Janice and Ron Wolod of Maryland; Kevin and Kim Garrett and sons Cody, Corey and Cameron of Nicholasville; Jason, Amanda and Eli Brown; Robert, Bradley and Joseph Brown, Rusty, Tory, Callie and Ella Akers, all of Tennessee; Laura and Mike Harris with daughters Hannah and Cassie and grandson, London.
Cameron and Corey spent their spring break with their grandparents, Randy and Eula Brown.
Eli came to be with them, but had to cut his vacation short with a broken arm. He came back with his parents for the weekend and was coping amazingly well for a threeyear old.
Janice and Ron came by Cowan for a few days on their way home to Maryland after visiting with their daughter Kim Schroer and family. They stayed with their granddaughters while Kim and Steve had a vacation for their 20th wedding anniversary.
While there, they saw Emma perform in a play and Amaliese play in a soccer game.
Janice, Thelma, Anna, Carol and I spent a day with our Aunt Virginia. Instead of having a big country dinner as has been our custom, we each made a salad.
It turned out to be a delicious, well-balanced meal, which we thoroughly enjoyed.
We were happy to have two young gentlemen join us for lunch, Corey and Cameron Garrett. They were so friendly and polite, and seemed to actually enjoy visiting with a houseful of little old ladies.
Tori, Callie and Ella Akers spent their spring break with John and Barbara Banks. While here they attended a revival held by John Banks at the little Cowan Church.
Tori, Rusty and the girls also spent Easter weekend with Tori’s parents. They had an Easter egg hunt with all their cousins.
John Banks and Carol Caudill attended the union meeting at Westview Primitive Baptist Church in Kingsport, Tenn. They heard good preaching and saw lots of friends and family.
Two of Virginia Brown’s DAR friends, Marsha Banks and Ann Reynolds, visited her Sunday afternoon. She loaned them a crazy quilt that she had made that had won state and national Americanism Awards.
The quilt will be on display, along with other historical quilts, at the Duncan Tavern DAR state headquarters, in celebration of their 75 years in that building.
Morgan and Byron Eldridge and little Carolina have moved into their new home in Perry County. Doris Ison and Donna Watts visited them there this week.
