    RAIN, RAIN, STAY AWAY. The weather has been a little less wet this week. Hopefully the spring rains will ease a bit for a while.

    MAY. The rain has finally slowed down, but many roads still have water over them causing them to be blocked off.  Fields and yards along the roadways still have water close to the roads causing caution whenever it starts raining.

    THANKS. My family and I are very appreciative of all that was done for me on my 90th birthday last Sunday. The calls, gifts, flowers and many cards were so appreciated. We had several family members and friends who attended. It was so good to see Henry and Ramona Cook of California who are in Kentucky visiting family and friends. Toby Smothers, who will be 92 on May 18, was also able to come help me celebrate.
