We may learn to appreciate friends and our loved ones


Hello everyone – All of our lives are changing at this time. It is definitely a hardship on those who work and I feel for them. I’m hoping that one good thing comes out of this coronavirus pandemic and that we learn to appreciate what we have and who we have in our lives. Not being able to spend time with friends and loved ones should make us appreciate them more.

It was sad to hear that Kentucky has had one death from COVID-10. This is definitely a serious virus.

It was disappointing that March Madness was canceled. It was definitely a risk of spreading the virus that couldn’t be taken.

The hoarding of toilet paper across the nation is crazy. I don’t understand the rationale some people use.

John Campbell took a drive to Red River Gorge one day. He met up with his son, Michael Campbell. Michael picked up his nephew Tucker’s dog from John. Then Michael met his brother-in-law, Mike Marr, in Lexington to return Ringo. Ringo had spent over a week with John. We all were getting used to Ringo and it was definitely quieter when he left. I think Ringo will remember us. I feel like John’s dogs, Lady and Buddy, were glad to see Ringo go.

Brad and Becky Wenning of New Paris, Ohio, spent the weekend at Red River Gorge, They rented a cute cabin. They sent us pictures of the cabin. Mike and I were going to meet up with them but Mike’s back is out and I have a sinus infection. We decided we needed to stay home.

I was only able to attend the first night of the Little Cowan Primitive Baptist Church revival. I heard it was a good service during the week.

Ella Caudill and Evelyn Crosgriff took a drive one day to Kingdom Come State Park. Ella enjoys being out in nature and I’m glad her sister went with her.

My cousin, Gale Dean Campbell, has died. He was now under Hospice care. His dad, Herman, was a brother to my dad, Varon.

Cousin Kathy LaMonte of Yazoo City, Miss., was here all week. She and her granddaughters, Ava and Emma, left last Saturday to go home. I’m hoping Kathy comes back soon. Her granddaughters found out on Friday that their spring break was being extended.

I did make it to the Letcher County Extension Office in time to turn in my plant order. I placed an order for my Aunt Susan Stamper and me. We will have plenty of rhubarb. The plants should be in during April.

The quote for the week: Stop worrying about what you have to lose and start focusing on what you have to gain.
