We all should be thankful everyday for God’s goodness, not just on the holidays. God has blessed us here in Clay County, look at the other states where so many things have happened. You know the Lord could send destruction on us too. We are so blessed, we should count our blessings everyday.
We had a good singing Saturday night. The grandbaby enjoyed Robert Turberfield as he played the banjo for him. He sure likes gospel bluegrass. You should see his little fingers as he tries to play his banjo.

Thanksgiving will be here next week and families everywhere will be together for this holiday, but we are to give thanks everyday and today is Veterans Day. So many brave men and women gave their lives for our freedom and we are to honor them.
Well, we have had some cold mornings this past week and most of the leaves are gone off of the trees. As I’ve always said, its good to have friends. I want to thank Roger Samples for helping me to start the truck. Roger’s dad and I worked together on the Highway Department. They are good people, so when you see somebody you know that needs help, help them if you can. Be a good neighbor.
The Roots Branch Church will be having their monthly singing this Saturday night starting at 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The grandbaby is growing so fast. He likes his big jeep and he sure can drive it. He is in the yard and around the barn and garden with his jeep, he keeps me busy charging it up, and he likes to play with his little boat on the pond. he runs my legs off keeping up with him. He sure is a smart little fellow.
A lot of people are still sick and need prayer: Waymon and Joyce Mills, Edgar Lawson, James Brown and Denver Smith.
Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Brooke Ann Dieson, James D. Hicks and John Wiley Sibert. Also, happy belated birthday to Goldie Griffin. Feeling mighty fine, hit the big 59, from family and friends. We wish for all of you the best birthday ever and may the good Lord bless you all to have many more.
Remember the ones in the hospitals, the nursing homes and the ones that have lost a loved one. We wish for everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving, from our home to yours. May the good Lord bless and keep you, and may He forever hold you in His hands.

Well folks, the clocks changed Sunday morning. It went back one hour and it will take a while to get used to it. It will be good for the kids that go to school. For many, it will be daylight for them to catch the buses.
Well, rabbit season opened Saturday and I saw a few hunters out hunting. There should be plenty of rabbits because I’ve seen a lot about every morning.
Halloween is over and I guess everyone is looking forward for Thanksgiving. We took the grandbaby out trick or treating and he was dressed up like a farmer and he was so pretty with his beard, overalls and his little hat. Everybody loved him, he got a lot of candy and things. I want to thank the Horse Creek Holiness Church for giving out candy for all the kids and Mrs. Norma Lee Sibert was working hard giving out treats for the kids, and the Horse Creek Fire Department for helping give out treats to and for everyone that give out candy and things for the children. The children were all dressed up in their pretty outfits
The grandbaby likes going to Sunday school and church. He plays his guitar with me and he really likes to play his banjo too. He is so smart. He catches on real fast, the boys get a kick out of watching him on his banjo. He is a sight. I wish everyone would take their children and grandchildren to Sunday school and church. I know if they did, it would make a difference in their lives. They should try it and see.
A lot of folks are still sick and in need of prayers: James Brown, Bobby Hacker, Waymon and Joyce Mills, Edgar Lawson, Carl Gay down Bullskin way, Inos Smith and Daugh Downey. So many each week in need of prayer, so pray for them.
Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Tina Sheets, Glenn Smith and Talicity Hubbard and happy anniversaries go out this week to James and Kim Hicks, they are still deeply in love and that’s the way it should be, ha ha. Kim is a sight.
I want to thank the good Lord for all my friends that I have. About every week, some folks come and visit with us. Just today, the Brooks from Laurel County came by to see us and so many call and say they enjoy reading my little column and I truly appreciate you all. If you want friends, be a friend.
Well, I’ll stop for this time. From our house to your house, may God richly bless you and may the good Lord forever hold you in His hands.

Well folks, the weather sure has changed in the last few days from highs of 76º down to 50º. Seems like it’s cold enough to snow, the rain sure is cold, but the good Lord knows what we need.
Well, the election is getting closer each day. Just one week from this Tuesday, so get out and vote. That’s one privilege that we still have.
Here on the farm, we have a lot of animals like turkeys, squirrels, raccoons, groundhogs and a few deer. I like to watch them play. Our friend, Junior Smith, saw a black bear and two cubs the other day over on Whites Branch. I’ve not seen any here in our country, but some people say that every once and awhile, they see some. There used to be a lot of grouse around here, but we’ve not seen any in a while. I wonder what happened to them?
Well, it won’t be too long until Thanksgiving. That’s when a lot of families get together for dinner and that’s good.
Remember the sick in your prayers this week: Celia Mills, Bobby Hacker, James Brown, Edgar Lawson, Waymon and Joyce Mills and Charlie and Delbert Collins. Remember the ones in the hospitals, the nursing homes and the ones that are at home.
The grandbaby is sure growing up too fast. He told me the other night what he wanted Santa Claus to bring him - a big pony, a bridle and saddle, a pair of cowboy boots and a hat. He is a sight. He likes to play in the barn.
Thanks to all of you for reading my little column each week. Well, I’ll stop for this time. May the good Lord bless and keep you and may He forever hold you in His hands.

Boy, are we having pretty weather now? It would be good to have a warm winter. I sure hope we will, I like spring myself. The lady bugs are here again and plenty of them here at our house. They are everywhere. Well, the grass has slowed down and the lawn mower is getting some rest, but there are plenty of things to do around the farm.
The grand baby is growing up too fast, he’s getting into everything and he rides his jeep and boy he can ride his jeep. He’s learning fast. He likes going to Sunday school and church. Everyone loves him. He likes to take a bath and play in water. He got a haircut yesterday.
The government is talking about the little post offices. They want to keep them open two hours a day. The next thing will be to close them. Ain’t it a sight what they want to do? Where are our rights? Seems like we don’t have any. We had another meeting to discuss about keeping the Hima Post Office open for six hours a day, but we don’t matter here in Clay County to the ones in Frankfort. Well, so much for that.
Remember all the sick: Robert Hacker, Edgar Lawson, Waymon and Joyce Mills, James Brown, Trisha Jane Shelton and Lillie Mae Hicks. So pray for all these folks and the ones in the hospital and the nursing homes. Pray for all the ones that have lost a loved one this past week.
Happy birthday wishes go out this week to Melanie Sizemore and Jake Denson. Also Dale and Amber Denson, they all live up Casey County way. May the good Lord bless you all to have many more.
Well folks, election time draws near. Get out and vote.
I’ve still got four or five bushels of sweet potatoes left. If you need any, call 598-6348.
I want to thank everyone for reading my little column. I really appreciate you all. I’ll stop for this time. May the good Lord bless you and may He forever hold you in His hands.
