Whitesburg KY

Visiting with your family, friends is now a pleasure


Hello everyone — I hope all are doing fine and dandy. I am so ready for warmer weather. Some days are fantastic and other days are cool.

It was brought to my attention that I left the weekly quote out of my column last week. I apologize. Mike told me about it when he read The Mountain Eagle. I could come up with excuses but that won’t change anything.

Feel Better Wishes are being sent to: Edison Banks; Mark Miles; Ramona Caudill; Randy Brown; Janice Wolod; and Robert Sword.

Jeff Vice of Flemingsburg stopped by one afternoon. He was on his way to their place on Kingdom Come and had brought stuff for me. He brought a wrought iron chair with cushions and a rug. It had been nearly a year since we had seen Jeff. He was looking good.

On Friday evening, Debbie Vice was heading to Flemingsburg from Liberty when she decided to head to Letcher County. It was great seeing her on Saturday.

Debbie had spent several days in Liberty with her daughter and son-in-law, Ellen and Ryan White. Debbie had been babysitting her youngest grandson, Charlie. Debbie enjoyed her time with Charlie and his parents.

Michael Campbell of Newport came in for the weekend. He visited his dad, John Campbell of Cowan, and his grandpa, Glen Brown of Whitesburg. It was good spending time with Michael.

Michael, John, Jeff, Debbie, Mike, and I went to Sazon Mexican Restaurant Saturday night. It was so good to be with family in a restaurant. I have missed going places and doing things with family.

Thelma Ison of Flemingsburg went to Indianapolis, Ind., with her daughter, Jenny Stigers of Louisville. They went to the funeral of Russell Yonts.

Anna and Duane Yonts of Little Cowan went to the funeral of Russell Yonts also. Their son, Joe Yonts of Somerset, drove. Duane and Russell were brothers.

Edwin Caudill of Grundy,

Va., attended the funeral along with a lot of Russell’s nieces and nephews.

Carol Caudill of Little Cowan went to Talbot, Tenn., to the high school graduation of her greatniece Callie Akers. Callie is the daughter of Tori and Rusty Akers and the granddaughter of John and Barbara Banks of Cowan.

Laura Harris of Lexington came in to visit her parents, Bob and Ramona Caudill of Little Cowan. We saw Laura and Ramona at a yard sale on Saturday morning. I love seeing family when we’re out and about.

Susan Stamper of Lexington came in to work on her place. It was great seeing her. I visited her on Sunday evening and we spent a lot of time talking.

Mike, John, and I visited Robert and Kathy Sword on Sunday. It was good seeing them. I left my jacket there and will be making a trip back to their place.

I visited with Doris Banks, Anna Yonts, and Carol Caudill for a while on Sunday. It was good spending time with these ladies. I did see Randy Brown for a few moments while I was there. Having family around gives me a sense of serenity.

Tucker Marr of Berea graduated from preschool. He is the son of Janis and Michael Marr. His grandparents are John Campbell of Little Cowan, and Debbie and Ron Marr of Elizabethtown. His great-grandpa is Glen Brown of Whitesburg.

Little Cowan Primitive Baptist Church will have its Memorial Day Service on Sunday, May 23, 2021 at the Hop Gibson Cemetery. The service will start at eleven o’clock. Please note the date change as this is a week early.

To make up for missing last week’s quote, I’m putting in two quotes.

This quote is attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson: “No one can bring you peace but yourself.”

This quote is attributed to Roselene Flickman: “Embrace your life journey with appreciation, so how you travel your way is a higher priority than arriving at your definitive objective.”

If you have any news, please email me Cowan- News@aol.com. Thanks.

I’m still carrying a mask. Have a wonderful week and stay focused on your dreams.
