Mountain Top Party Line

Pictured here is Una Lawless at work in her garden. She had beautiful gardens and helped folks in need a lot. I’ll never forget her kindness to me when I worked at Greene’s Country Store. Many times she called and said, “Come by, I have supper fixed for you to take home.” It was so good after a day’s work. Sadly, Una has gone on to be with the Lord. Thanks to her daughter Dorothy Vipperman for this photo.

Here it is October and there is a lot going on and many places to go in this month here in Patrick County.
I enjoyed going to Faith, Hope and Love Church; and seeing Pastor James Shough again. It was so nice and everyone was so friendly, and everyone got to enjoy free hot dogs and fellowship—a good day!
Thanks to everyone who made my 83rd birthday special and filled with a lot of surprises. I was overwhelmed by the outpouring of love with cards, gifts, visits, calls, balloons, lots of gift cards and certificates, and food. I’m so blessed with so many friends and neighbors. Love you all.
It was nice to hear from Mr. and Mrs. J.R. Weaver. Sorry they haven’t been well. Please put them on your prayer list.
Get well wishes also go to Nancy Lindsey who broke her ankle last week.
Homecoming at Patrick Springs Pentecostal Holiness was really nice. The guest singers were wonderful, and of course there’s always some good food.
I had a letter from my flower friend, Pauline Martin of Rocky Mount, N.C. She has been in the hospital and will appreciate your prayers.
“Miss Claudine” Wood (age 96) called me on my birthday and sang for me. It made my day and got my birthday started off well.
Hody Jones made me a pretty homemade card. Thank you.
It was so good to hear from Bobby and Judy Gardner the other day. Thanks for calling me.
Thanks to R.E. and Sally Turner for their kindness on my birthday.
At this time “The Soup Kitchen” is in its new home (thanks to Lock Boyce) and getting set up to reopen. My people really miss the soup and pinto beans. Thanks to all who support this worthy cause, helping people.
We are anxious to see the pictures and hear Pastor Marion talk about his trip to Israel and Romania. He was really touched by his trip to Romania.
Thanks to Maxine Simmons for baking me a birthday cake. It is delicious. Maxine is famous for her cakes. God bless.
Household hint: to dress up buttered, cooked vegetables, sprinkle them with toasted sesame seeds, toasted chopped nuts, canned French-fried onions, grated cheese, or slightly crushed seasoned croutons.
