Monterey Matters By Dana Burke

By Dana Burke

Well we all made it home safely, with no injuries or no broken bones to report on. About 12 of us girls from several surrounding counties went snow-tubing at Paoli Peaks last weekend. We had a blast. Those from Monterey that went were Rhonda Chisholm, April Jackson, Donna Wainscott, Pam Brock and of course myself. From Frankfort was Troi Cunningham, Ruby Stewart, (currently from Owen County) Toni Quire, Robin Croley, Robin Moore, and Mary Nell Dempsey (Ueltschi). Then there was one more from Shelbyville — Lynn Whitehouse. Come to find out Lynn lives right down the road from where Lee and I recently bought our new farm — small world isn’t it? We had a great time. I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I’ve laughed so hard. Those girls are so funny. Thanks again, girls, for the invite. I am looking forward to going again in the future.
An old friend of mine from Frankfort, Kay Robertson, recently e-mailed me. I knew Kay from our days at Fruit of the Loom. It was so nice hearing from her. A bunch of us girls used to hang out all the time at my first apartment in Frankfort. It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve seen or spoken to her. However, I recently ran into her and her sister, Sandy, over Christmas break. We had a little bit of a chance to catch up with each other, and exchange e-mail addresses. I have received a few e-mails from her since. She was telling me that her grandson, Keegan Chase Wilburn, lives in Monterey with his dad, Randy. Keegan is Jamie’s son, her oldest daughter. Kay went on to say that Keegan is 5 years old and attends Owen County Elementary School and loves his teacher, Ms. New. Kay said both her grandsons are her pride and joy. Kay also has another grandson, Daniel, by her other daughter, Samantha. Daniel is 3 years old. Thanks for sharing some news with us, Kay. I’m also happy to hear that you enjoy reading our local paper.
I spoke with Mickey Miller recently and she was asking me if I knew that our father had joined in on the singing up at Old Cedar. I didn’t know this but was happy to hear it. He really enjoys going to church there. That man loves some music. I later read about it in the paper and saw where it was to begin last Sunday. They are calling it the “Old Cedar Choral Ministry.” I wish them all the best with this. I plan to go and listen to them all soon.
Jan Riddle recently shared some family news with me. She spent Christmas Eve in Lexington with two of her nieces, Paula and Rick Zirkle and Cindy Vehers, and their families. She also said that her sister and brother-in-law, Clara and Dallas, came through Frankfort and picked her up and took her with them. Thanks for sharing your news with us, Jan.
That’s about it for this week. Until next time, be safe and please continue to keep all our sick in your thoughts and prayers.
