Violet Blakey brought me some mushrooms last Monday and were they every good.
Carol came that evening and picked me up and then we went on over to Marie Dickey and got her and then headed for our O.E.S. meeting.
I am sure glad Kay Hutchison lives on past me so that when I can’t take my news in she always stops and picks it up and I sure appreciate it.

Chad and Laura Blakey came Saturday evening and dropped off some eggs, Laura stayed in the car because it was raining and my yard was full of water.
Speaking about water here goes, Friday 1.3, Saturday by 10 pm 1.5, Sunday by 6 pm 2.3, and when I got up Monday morning I had 2 inches by 8 am, a total of 7.1 and it is still coming down. Sunday was a very good sunrise service, Bro. David Dodson brought us a stirring and spiritual message.
We had a good turn out for the service and we thank every one for coming.
Breakfast was served and after every one was through we put the food away and lots left to go to their own church and we had our Easter program and it turned out real good, we ended with testimonial and dismissed with prayer.
I went down to Mark and Sherry for dinner and we had turkey breast for our meat and hash brown, pea salad, devil eggs, gravy, dressing, dessert was served later.
Those present were Dewayne and Lora Kay Davis, Chad and Laura Blakey, Hellen Blakey, Mark and Sherry Blakey and Mark Weston.
Those gathering in the Bonnie Phipps home Sunday for their Easter dinner were Roy and Linda Sue Freeman, Mike and Wendee Freeman and family, Ken and Debbie Cederlind, Moe and Kaylynn Todd, Cecilia Edwards and Bonnie Phipps, didn’t get what they served but I imagine every one went away well fed.
Let’s keep all our sick folks in our prayers some are in the hospital, nursing home and in their own home.
My prayers and sympathy go out to all the ones who have lost a loved one. Keep your prayers going up for our leaders and the men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training.
I have a little story to tell you that I heard Monday night, April 25, first to you remember about three years ago when we had that big rain and Delmar Rosseau’s trailer was surrounded by water and it was on KY3 News, well it happened again on the 25th, Delmar and Margaret saw the water was coming over the creek bank and into their yard so they started to move their vehicles up to higher ground. When they got that done, the water was too high for them to get her mother and her friend out of their house so they called James Blakey with his big black truck which I will call it a cougar since they are both black and mighty to rescue Margaret, her mother and friend. James said he backed in and the water was swift and was almost to swift for him but they made it out, I hope there were a lot of prayers going up for James, you see I already had his back because I pray for all my children every night and morning and then when my prayers are answered I thank the Lord for it.
