Well folks, here at our house, we turned the heat on. This morning the frost could be seen on the house tops, the first frost this season! We can say that fall is here for sure and soon, it will be winter. The leaves are falling everywhere, its wonderful to see all the trees when the leaves turn their colors. So many different colors. Its great to see what the good Lord has made.
As He always said, it’s good to have friends. I got a letter from my good friend Sarah Pelfrey way up Virginia Way. Thank you again Sarah for everything. I’ve harvested the gourds, they are so pretty, and Sarah I’ve given away a lot. The children come and they want some, and I got a lot of hugs, so Sarah you made that happen. As the Bible says, it’s better to give and we should give him glory and praise.
I want to thank everyone for calling me and writing me, telling me how they enjoy reading my little column. The grandbaby is growing like a weed and getting into everything. I made a big fodder shock and put the pumpkins and gourds around them and the baby rolls them everywhere. He is a sight!
I’d like to say folks, we are so blessed here in America and we should be more thankful to our good Lord. He gives quite us the things we need. A lot of people burn coal or wood for heat in the winter. If you need any firewood, Lee Hicks has plenty oak and hickory cut and split up. His number is 598-7812. Call him, the price is $40 a load if you come get it, or he will deliver for $50 a load.
Happy birthday wishes go out this week to Patrisha Smith, my nephew Albert Lawson, Christopher Gibson, William Welson, and Johnny Hues. We wish all of you the best birthday ever, and may God bless you all to have many more.
A lot of people are still sick and in need of prayer. Von Minton, Waymon and Joyce Mills, Cable Wilson, Edgar Lawson, and Harley Sibert. Remember the ones that have lost a loved one this past week. Sammie Minton’s family and Eugene Hensley and family. So pray for all of these people, pray for all the ones in the hospital, and the ones that are in the nursing home.
Well, I’ll stop for this time. May God richly bless you and your family. God bless America and may He forever hold you in His Hands.

I’m getting a lot of the gourds in and the butternut squares in and I fixed two big fodder shocks too. Me and the grandbaby, he had a good time helping me. He is a handful.
I got a call from my good friend Sarah Peldry way up Virginia Way and she was asking about the grandbaby. It’s always good to hear from your friends. They got the Enterprise up in Virginia. A lot of people from out of state get the paper and we thank you for reading my little column each week.
A lot of people are still sick and need prayer. Waymon and Joyce Mills, Harley Sibert, Edgar Lawson, Charlie Collins, Dillard Couch, and James Brown. Remember the ones in the hospital and the ones that are in the nursing home. Remember the ones that have lost a loved one the Gloria Hensley family. So many each week, so pray for them.
Happy Birthday wishes go out to Eli Broughton, may God bless you to have many more.
Well folks, fall is here and it won’t be long before it frosts. The leaves are already covering the ground and some are turning pretty colors already. It’s amazing to see God’s creation, he made everything and he made it good.
Well, I’ll stop for now. May God richly bless you and God bless America, and may He forever hold you in His hands.

A friend of mine, Carl Reynolds from Texas, came by Saturday to visit with me. We used to go to school together and he said it was hot and dry up there. He said the temperature had been 109. That’s hot. It’s always good for friends to visit, and I got to see Delbert Woods Saturday. The good Lord sure has blessed him, he said he was 92 years young and he still fox hunts. I never saw so many trophies in my life that he had won at the shows and field trials, he had the trophies to prove it. He has a big fox pin to hunt in.
I got to see another friend last week, Mary Perkins. We grew up together on Whites Branch and the good Lord has blessed her too. We talked about how we grew up together having to walk to school. Kids today have got it good, the busses run by the door. When I went to begin school, I had to walk six miles a day, three down to catch the bus and three back home.
Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Kim Hicks,, Harley Sibert, Lisa Williams, and Jamie Hubbard. Also, Jamie and Tabathy Hubbard will be having their anniversary this week. We wish all to have the best birthday ever, and you two have a good anniversary and God bless you all to have many more, from all your family and friends.
The potatoes are going fast, if you want any, better call 598-6348.
A lot of folks tell me they got the Enterprise. Well, thanks for getting the paper and thanks for reading my little column. I truly appreciate you all.
Well, I’ll stop for this time. May the good Lord bless and keep you and may He forever hold you in his hands and God bless America.

Well folks, we got some more rain and we sure needed it. The good Lord knows what we need. Our homecoming was really good. Good preaching, good singing, and plenty of good food and we had a good attendance too. We gave God the Glory for everything.
We are blessed here in Clay County. We see so much happening in other places. The drought and fire in Texas and floods everywhere, so people be thankful that it’s not here. But you know we are never satisfied, it’s too hot or too cold.
I’m putting a picture of a big log and me in the paper this week. Back in the spring we had a bad storm and the wind blew some of the trees down here on the lawn. So James Hicks, Oakley Gregory and Kelley Hicks cut the big tree. The biggest log was 14 feet long and it measured more than 1400 feet and there were 3 logs cut from the one tree and it was a big red oak tree. So you see folks, there are some big trees left.
I like the write-up that Tim Biggs put in the paper from Wagon Fork Road. He told the truth, too many people are looking for handouts today, and many have lost their respect. The Bible tells us that we are to make our living by the sweat of our face. So you see folks, not too many works any more and our country is in bad shape.
I’ve worked hard all my life and I’ve never asked for a handout. I believe that if you are able, you should work for a living. I know there are some people that are not able to work, and they are the ones that need help.
Some folks are having birthdays. Brenda Hicks and Anna Bell Smith, the grand daughters of Miss Gearden Boats Smith, her father and mother are Kenny and Renee Smith. So happy birthday to you and may God bless you to have many more. Kelley and Brenda Hicks will be celebrating their anniversary this week. May God bless you both to have many more.
I looked at the pumpkin and the gourd patch and they are everywhere. I really like working in the garden. If you need potatoes, call this number 598-6348 or 598-7812, and they are good. The sweet potatoes are still growing and I got a big bucket full in the home coming that we had today and they are pretty big too. Folks, I raise a big garden. We’ve already harvested 73 bushels of fresh potatoes. The big Kenny buck
The Roots Branch Church will be having their monthly singing Saturday night, starting at 7 PM. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Remember the ones that are sick. Harley Sibert Waymon, Joyce Mills, Edgar Lawson, Trisha Jane Shelton, Lucy Williams and so many more. Remember the ones that have lost a loved one this past week, the Roark family and the Napier family. The ones in the nursing homes and the ones in the hospital, so pray for them.
Well I’ll stop for this time. May God richly bless you and your family, God blesses America and may He forever hold you in His hands.
