Hello from Baldwin,
How is everyone’s week going? I hope that everyone is having a great one. We are supposed to be getting a little snow toward the end of the week and some colder temperatures. Are you looking forward to seeing snow? Snow might not be that bad, but I sure home is doesn’t get as cold as it was last week.
Our family took a day trip this past Saturday. We went to Cecilia, Kentucky, to a birthday party that was held in honor of my great niece, Riley Lynn Smith. Riley is the daughter of James Paul and Tiffany Smith and the granddaughter of Henry and Nelda Smith of Baldwin and Jerry and Lynn McFalls of Lincoln County. Riley turned 1 year old on Jan. 9. Those of us that went to the party were, Henry, Nelda and Alysann Smith, Garnett and Myra Isbell, Wes, Debbie and Kara Jones, Kendall, Tiffany and Sawyer Jones and myself.
We all enjoyed food and fellowship, before watching Riley with her cake and opening presents. Then later we all had cake and ice cream. Many friends and family surrounded Riley and her family to help her celebrate her birthday.
Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Bill Ball, Sunday; Zackery Davis, Monday; Melissa Moscoe, Wednesday; Priscilla Winkler and Wesley Hall, Thursday; and Elise and Kennley Madden, Friday. Elise and Kennley will be celebrating their first birthday. I hope that you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Billy and Linda Curtis and Stacey and Tammy Curtis, Sunday; Billy and Linda will be celebrating their 42nd anniversary, and Stacey and Tammy will be celebrating their 24th anniversary. Bo and Anna Robinson, Thursday. I hope that you all have very happy anniversaries and many more happy ones to come.
My deepest sympathy goes to the family of David Bertram. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time and in the days to come.
Well, I guess that is all for now, let me know if you hear any news, just give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at email@example.com.
