We replanted our garden this past week. We first planted it I believe it was May 8, then it started raining, and rained for days until a hard crust formed on top that you could easily walk upon and not leave a foot print. Our potatoes came up and a few small seeds I had sown came up. I guess they sprouted before the ground dried.
GRADUATIONS. Hope everyone had a safe Memorial Day and weekend. Friday evening, we went to Louisville to be there early to attend our great-granddaughter’s high school graduation. We spent the night with daughter, Phyllis, and her husband, Bob Ruff. The graduation ceremony was held at Male High School, though she attended Moore. This seemed to be the location they were having the ceremonies for all the high schools. The ceremonies for her class were held at 9 a.m. and I understand there were to be two more there Saturday. In the afternoon she, Carrie Leigh Woods, was given a graduation party by the family. There were 40 or more in attendance. A graduation cake and many other delicious refreshments were served. We rode up from Elizabethtown with daughter, Carleen Dodson, and special friend, Myles Vollmer, who were coming up from Nashville to attend the graduation. Our son, James Barnes, came and attended the party Saturday afternoon and brought us home. Congratulations to my daughter-in-law Marcia Barnes’ niece, Amanda Cecil, who graduated from LaRue County High School. She is the daughter of Eddie and Helen Cecil. Best wishes to all 2008 graduates, both high school and college. OUT OF TOWN. Our son, Wayne Barnes, and daughter, Emily Barnes, attended the NASCAR races this past weekend in Charlotte, N.C. I’m sure they enjoyed that a lot. FAIR PAGEANTS. Well that time of the year is almost here again.

Four members of our church or their family members who had passed this past year were remembered. They were O.K. Buckles, May 14, 1915—July 17, 2007; Henry Lawson, Nov. 21, 1917—March 2, 2008; J.B. Dunn, July 9, 1919-April 12, 2008; and Don Hill, June 11, 1939-April 21, 2008. Our military were certainly not forgotten, those who died upon foreign fields that we might enjoy the freedom we so cherish here in the good ol' USA. The Seniors “Doer’s & Goer’s” plan to picnic June 7 at the farm belonging to Ilsa Ach in Breckinridge County. SYMPATHY. We extend our sympathy to the family of Stella Buchanan, who passed away this past week. She will be sadly missed by all those who knew her. Our sympathies to the family of Barbara Sue Davis. She leaves her husband, G.A. Davis, of Cecilia, and children, along with her mother, Kathleen Booker. Sympathy to Raymond Daugherty and family upon the death of his wife. BIRTHDAY. Belated 90th birthday wishes to Mr. Willis Willyard. I read in The News Enterprise where they gave him a surprise birthday party Sunday at his home church, Ridge Springs United Methodist Church. I have known Willis and his wife, Lottie, for many years. I knew him for a long time before they married. GET-WELL WISHES. Get-well wishes to all who are ill, and keep our military in your prayers. Some we know who are serving our country are Jesse Preston, Brandon Freeman, Brandon Swartzlander, Jay Holmes, Mike Holmes, Trevor Flowers, Matthew Eubank, Shawn Atcher, Jack Bryant, Tyler Grinstead, Charlie Smith, Philip Fulmer, Josh Webster, Sean Farley, Robert Gibson, Daimien Rayles and Jenifer Tarrance. Please let me know if you have someone you wish added to this list. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. “A word from your mouth speaks volumes about your heart.” HELPFUL HINT. I save pictures from my digital camera onto the computer, then when I wish to send someone a greeting card, I pick a suitable one from my stash and print it upon a photo paper card and write a personal message upon it. Maybe not any cheaper than one bought, but a lot more personal. SUBMIT YOUR NEWS. Thanks for sending me your news items. Keep it up to email@example.com.
