Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well and keeping cool. I don’t think I have ever seen it this hot. I don’t think I have ever sweated this much. Maybe it’s age doing that to me.
I went to Ermine Center last Wednesday and we had some missionaries from Alabama there. We enjoyed them. They did some good singing, and we all sang with them. It was like having church.
I also went over to Letcher Manor Nursing Home. Earl Profitt is doing so much better, and his wife Juanita is looking a little more rested. He is eating real well. It was good seeing their daughter, Sheila and her husband, Roger Brown, of Virginia there.
Jeanette Yonts, I’m sorry I called you Deloris Holbrook (your sister) in the paper last week. I’ve always had trouble keeping you two straight. I make a mistake one week and have to straighten it up. I think I may be getting too old for this, right?
A late happy anniversary to Patty and Bobby Evans, old friends I haven’t seen in awhile. I hope you are doing well.
I think Bro. Caleb Howard did the best preaching he has ever done at our church last Wednesday. We really enjoyed it and had a great service.
Judy and Benny Dent, I hope Benny is doing better, and we hope you will be able to come to Mountain Heritage.
You people who haven’t been to Whitesburg the past year will see some big changes, new businesses and lots of roadwork and new blacktopping. We are proud of all the changes. We love Whitesburg! Eat your heart out, all you misplaced people! We think of you often.
My son Billy came by for a visit last Thursday. I’m always so glad to see my boys. I have to fuss at Larry all the time for working so hard. If he’s not weed-eating, he’s mowing. It’s way too hot to work that hard. He has this whole hillside to take care of, four homes, and his wife Linda works hard also when she has her days off from Walmart.
I think it’s about time for school to start. I guess all the kids are looking forward to it. Probably the moms also. I hope the roadwork is better by then. The traffic has been terrible, but it will sure be nice when it’s finished.
I plan on spending the weekend with my son Astor ‘Red’ and his wife in Ashland. I’m looking forward to it. I haven’t been anywhere in awhile, but I’m a homebody and enjoy staying home.
I have lots of friends, and my church, and lots of family members, so I don’t ever have to be lonely.
My son Billy Hatton and Elzie Ray Hatton will both be having a birthday on Aug. 19.
Carfa Niece has been in Lexington to have some stents put in. He’s home now, but I’ve not had a chance to talk to him. I hope he’s doing okay. We sure miss him when he’s not at church playing the bass guitar.
Vickie Standifer is doing better and seems to be back to her old self, and we are glad.
My niece Robin Tyree seems to be doing a lot better, and I’m sure glad of that.
My brother Hubert Howard and wife Joyce have been gone to the lake. They got home last week, and I hope they enjoyed themselves.
My sister Louise Shepherd was looking for her grandson Zack Day to come see her last week. She was looking forward to seeing him.May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week.
