Hello everyone. How are you? I hope you are all doing well.

How about this pretty weather? A few days ago we had snow and ice and temperatures down to 11 degrees, and now the snow is all gone and our temperature was 61 degrees, and 51 one morning. I sure ain’t complaining.

Anyone want to go swimming? Not me, but I sure like this warm weather. The bad thing is that it’s January, so keep the coats handy.

I have missed getting to go to church. I live on a hill and it sure gets bad. I don’t get the sun until afternoon. Am I complaining? No, I can find something to do and I don’t ever get bored.

I got a call from my good friend Anna Watkins in Florida. It was so good to hear from her. We had a bad connection, but we still talked for a good while. I still miss her after over 55 years. She was a good neighbor.

I also got a call from Rose Ballard. I enjoy talking with her. We can always find something to talk about. I feel like I have always known her. She talks about her life as a child, and it was so much like mine. I hope we can have more time together the next time she comes in.

I also got a call from another old Marlowe friend, Bertha ( Page) Dye. She hopes some day all of us old Marlowe girls can get together at Pine Mountain Grill. I’d love to do that. So many of them are no long with us, and we think about all of them. Those were the good old days.

Steve Taylor had surgery in Pikeville Hospital last Thursday. My pastor, Bro. John Conn, was there. He said that he thought the surgery went well. We wish him the best and we will all be praying for him. He’s a fine young man.

We also send our sympathy to the family of Frieda McFall, who died last week. We have had so many funerals lately.

It was so good to get back to Sunday School and church last Sunday. I had missed all the people through the snow and ice. I’m glad it didn’t last long. I hope they all missed me.

I talked with my son Rob in Owensboro, and they have had nice weather also. He was going to the park to walk. I think he walks three miles a day.

May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week.
