    Hello friends. I have enjoyed the weather this week. It’s been warm with a little rain, but we need it for the gardens and the flowers. You know the old saying, “April showers bring May flowers.”

    APPRECIATION. Michell Grimes appreciates everyone who came out to the old school building to share in his birthday celebration.

    Happy Mother’s Day. I hope everyone enjoys the day, either being a mother or celebrating one.
       The April rain seems to have come a month late. I guess it is still good for the gardens. It makes it very muddy for planting.

    BIRTHDAYS. Happy birthday wishes go to Leo Dailey, John Owens, Celia Meadows, Autumn Bassette, Bobbi Walker, Jeff Bainbridge, Larry White, Amy Adams, Luann Brashear, Lettie Lamkin and Bashar Masri.
