Hello everyone. I hope all are having a good week. I took my sister Kathy Wolfe and her husband Eddie to the movies to see ‘Final Destination 5’ in 3-D. We all had a good time and the movie was great. It was the first time they had seen a 3-D movie. It was Kathy’s birthday, and Eddie’s is in September, so we wanted to do something fun.
Thula Ison of Blackey had a wonderful surprise. Her sister, Hermia Alveria Blair, came in from Indiana. Thula will be 76 years young on August 28. She said she could not have asked for a better gift for her birthday. Have a great birthday, Thula.
Roger Eldridge will celebrate his birthday on August 24. Have a good day, Roger.
It’s hard to believe our oldest son, Mike, will be the big Four-0 on August 26. Happy birthday, Son. We love you, even though it makes me feel old. For his birthday present he wants a steak dinner, to go to the movies, and $100. He may get the dinner or movie, but not the $100. Ha! Ha!
Anna Lou Combs is doing a little better, but still needs our prayers.
Such a tragedy at the Indiana State Fair. Please keep all those who were injured and the families of those who were killed in your prayers. A day of fun turned into sadness for many. So sad.
Audrey and Charles Hammonds were in last week on personal business. Neither one of them are in good health. I could see a change in them from the last time they were here. Keep them in your prayers also.
Others who need on the prayer list are: Tommy Day of Brown County, Ind.; Bill and Agnes Maggard of Columbus, Ind.; Marie Johnson Boyd of Dante, Va.; Mary Ann Maggard; Tony Maggard; Carla Maggard; Destiny Maggard; Hazel Rayburn; Irene and Eugene Day; Barbara Ann Boggs; Wayne Turner; Rubin and Odessa Lewis; and Ruby Partin.
A belated happy birthday to Destiny Maggard who turned 11 years old August 9.
Our sympathy goes out to the Pack family on the loss of their aunt, Wanda Miles Johnson. She lived in Cumberland and passed away in Cumberland, and was buried at the Dinah Blair Cemetery on Cowan. My sister-in-law Margaret Pack Fields was very close to her. My brother Archie and Margaret would go pick her up on several occasions and bring her to Whitesburg to the doctor’s office. I know they will miss her.
Please keep my son, Chad Fields in your prayers. They are supposed to work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week for the next few weeks. Pray that the Lord will keep His hand on him driving back and forth from Greensburg to Columbus, Ind.
He has been working that already, and finally took a break last Saturday. He said he is worn out. Pray that his health will be okay!
I saw Enos Sturgill last Saturday. He was talking to Archie, and then went to visit Tommy Fields.
I would like to say hello to all Mountain Eagle readers in Indiana, Ohio, Virginia, and all the other states. Please continue to read. We enjoy having readers from all over the state of Kentucky as well. I appreciate your comments. That is why I continue to write, because of all of you.
Here is a comment in reply to a remark in Speak Your Piece: He or she said they met me when I worked at Walmart in Greensburg, Ind. I think you are a Cornett – either a son or brother of the late Drenda Cornett. She was my mother’s best friend, the late Mary Fields. If so, hello to you and your family.
Hello to Georgette (Day) Sims and husband Harry and their granddaughter Madison.
Well everyone, have a great week. Until next time, may God bless!
