Homemakers swap plants, seeds

Sorry, forgot to write last week. I admit it, I’m getting forgetful.

The Letcher Area Homemakers met recently and had our annual seed and plant swap and also tacked a pretty quilt. Enjoyed being together making plans and visiting, too. We missed our members who couldn’t make it this month.

Hope all had a nice Easter weekend and were able to attend church services somewhere on Sunday.

Blair Branch, like other churches, had a big crowd in attendance and quite a lot of those attending stayed for “Dinner on the Ground.”

A few weeks ago, Joanne Adams and some of her family spent some time at Branson, Mo. I think her daughters Michelle and Marsha and sister Betty were a few who went and sorry I don’t know how many others. Joanne said they had a good trip.

It was pretty nice weather for the local Easter sunrise services. Bob said about 35 attended the one at Burton Hill Cemetery and they appreciate Richard Hampton for conducting the service.

Bill and Joyce Adams have both been in and out of the hospital week before last. Bill his home from Pikeville Hospital with a pacemaker and is feeling better, and Joyce is getting physical therapy to help get her strength back.

Whoever was driving the black Dodge Dakota on April 21 and left me a mini fridge on my Shoppe porch, thanks a bunch. I saw you there but you pulled out as I was walking down. How great a place we live in when someone helps you out for free.

So sorry to hear that Wayne and Brenda Adams’s home on Doty Creek was heavily damaged by a house fire. I hope it isn’t a total loss.

There was also a forest fire that burned wildly behind Jim Croucher’s home, and then on down the hillside to Adams Branch behind Doug Adams’s home. Many were worried about it.

Merle Caudill was doing better at the time of this writing. He spent a couple days in the hospital recently.

Terry Caudill also was feeling better after a recent hospital visit.

Ila and Tammy Adams have had visitors, Ila’s brother Dean and Susan, his wife, were here for a few days.

Bob and I took Don and Coreen Pridemore with us to General Butler State Park for a couple nights’ stay. We left on Saturday and came back on Monday. We attended Northern New Home Church at Goshen, Ohio, on Sunday and enjoyed visiting with all our brothers and sisters in Christ. They always make us feel so welcome.

After services we sat with Kevin and Nellie Kaye Ison and our niece Beth Banks while we had dinner and were glad to visit and catch up with what’s going on with all of them. Kevin told us how to go over to Indiana where Aaron and Edith Ison live. We stayed just a few minutes with them and were glad to meet their daughter, who was helping to take care of Aaron.

After leaving them, we stopped and visited with Rodney and Aaron Ison’s sister Polly before heading back to the state park. It was a very good weekend.

Mike and Sharon Ison had also visited with Aaron and Edith on Saturday.

We saw Chester and Odella Blair at church in Ohio and Chester has recently had a few heart procedures done. He had just gotten out of the hospital.
