Eva Sergent of Lexington, called. She is going to West Virginia and she is going to try to look up Margaret G. Day while she is there. I told her I was going to try to get to see her also. I’m going to Ashland.

I got the most Christmas cards I ever got. I loved every one of them. I made a list of the ones I had mailed out and lost it. Some got two cards from me and I’m afraid some did not get one and I’m so sorry.

This month has been so hectic, something going on every day. I haven’t got to go to the Ermine Center in a while and I’m sure I’ve missed a lot. They are always doing something. But I spend a lot of time at the Veterans Center and I get behind on everything here.

My whole family was getting together on Sunday evening to have Christmas for Clyde at the Veterans Center. Our family is 41 and they all promised to come. We had an old-fashioned Christmas. No gifts, just being together having a good meal and enjoying everyone. There are some new great-grandbabies Clyde hadn’t seen. He was looking forward to it.

We offer our sympathy to all who have lost loved ones over the holidays.

I heard from my old friend Hazel Ramsey of Wise, Va., formerly of Marlowe. Her dad and her brother, T.W. Easterling and son Billy, were both killed in Marlowe Mines in the ’40s. Billy was still in Whitesburg High School. He played football and worked nights in the mines. The family were real good friends of mine.

My son, Rob, and I enjoyed eating at Parkway Restaurant with Larry and Linda Hatton and their five grandchildren and Wendy and Kevin Day. We enjoyed the food and the good company.

My God bless you. Try to be in church this Wednesday and Sunday.

This news from the Ermine Senior Citizens Center:

“We had a real bash Dec. 20 at our Christmas party. There was ham with all the trimmings, all brought by our senior citizens.

“We would like to thank the following businesses for their contributions. We were able to have wonderful door prizes because of their generosity. Thanks to Wal-Mart, Pine Mountain Grill, Lee’s Chicken, Pikeville Medical Center, and Letcher Manor, which furnished our drinks.

“Our site manager, Debbie Slone, gave certificates of recognition to some of our seniors who volunteer in different ca- pacities: Jim Craft, Lennon and Yvonne Hammock, Charles and Shirley Day, Rhuford and Coleen Hart, Judith Vermillion, and Lizzie Wright. Debbie stated that everyone who attends our center is important. You are invited to come join our fun if you are 60 or older. We have two ladies who are over 90 years old.”
