Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well. I have had a great week!
I’ve spent a week in Georgetown with my son Astor “Red” and his wife Rosemary, and my son Rob came and spent a day and night with us. His daughter Rocki and husband Matt Hill of Lexington, their two beautiful children, Elise and Daniel, came and spent an evening with us and had dinner. We certainly enjoyed that.
It was one of the best weeks I can remember. I love spending time with my four sons. They are not only my sons, but my best friends, all of them!
I love spending time with my other two also, who live here, and I’m glad to get to spend some time with Bill and Larry and their families. I’m glad they stayed here.
I’m glad the election is over and hope the best ones all won, and will do a good job .
It looks like winter is here. There has been some snow, but it has been so cold! I think we are supposed to get some more snow, but I hope it passes us by.
I haven’t got to see anyone since I’ve been home. I’ll get around to it and find out how they are all doing, and hope all of them are doing well.
I sure missed my church while I’ve been gone and hope they missed me.
I had a lot of phone calls when I got home. If I haven’t called you back, I will get around to it. I really appreciate calls from my friends.
I think Facebook has taken the place of a lot of calling. Not me, I haven’t got into that and probably never will. I’m out of style, I guess.
I have a birthday coming up soon, Nov. 21. Dorthy Tacket knows how old I will be. I’m not ashamed to tell my age. I’m just glad to be blessed and doing well for my age.
I’ve got to get busy and find out how all my friends are doing. I’m sure Cram Creek Church was really appreciated by Bro. Earnest and Kathleen Brock for the nice anniversary dinner they gave them at the Shrine Building, and all the folks attending and they enjoyed it so much. It was a nice thing to do.
I’ve not had a chance to see my sister Louise Shepherd since I’ve been home. She’s gone a lot, so I guess she’s doing okay.
We’ve got a lot of sick folks. I’ll check on them, and I hope they are feeling better.
I went to Food City hoping I would see a lot of people. I did see a lot, but no one I knew. That was strange, I thought I knew about everyone. I did see Imogene Sexton in the parking lot. I hadn’t seen her for a long time, and she looked good as usual. Some folks are like that — I wish I was!
We offer our sympathy to the family of Thelma (Cook) Bays, who died in Anderson, S. C. She was a daughter of the late Leis and Susan Cook, and was formerly of Whitesburg (Whitco). She worked at Dawahare’s for a long time. Her brother Riley Cook and wife Opal still live near their old homeplace, and other family live nearby.
Their mother Susan Cook lived there and went to the same church I go to. We all loved her dearly and still miss her.
Well, I’ve not had much to write about. I’ll get out and about and find out what all is going on, and I’ll tell it all. Just the good things, of course.
May God bless all of you, and try to be in church somewhere if you are able.
