We are now ready for warm weather and pool season.

  • The weather warmed up for the Easter weekend but it did rain Easter Sunday. There's an old saying, that if it rains on Easter Sunday it will rain seven Sundays in a row. We'll just have to wait and see.

    EASTER SUNRISE.  Easter Sunrise Service was held at Vertrees Baptist Church last Sunday.

  • Good to be back on the line again, my computer has been in the shop the past couple of weeks, I have really missed it.

Even though I don’t get the chance to be online much anymore, I do check my e-mail most every day to see what I have. I noticed I have more than 700 unread e-mails, of which I know I can never get all of those read, even though I dislike deleting any without first reading, I know I must.
