Hello everyone. The fish fry is back.
Susie at the Roundhill Store called to tell me she is going to have a fish fry Friday night from 4 to 8 p.m.
I know many have missed the fish fry. The winter months lessened the availability for many to get out in the cold. So, spring is here and the fish fries are here, as well.
So, come by and let Susie know how much you appreciate all the effort she puts into the fish fries.
Along with the fish, she will be serving baked beans, hush puppies, home-fried potatoes and cole slaw. Don’t forget the dessert.
Kirksville Baptist Church will be presenting “The Living Lord’s Supper” on Saturday, April 27, at 7 p.m.
They have been working diligently on this presentation. They are having many rehearsal nights.
It is on a Saturday night, so everyone should be able to attend a great program. You know celebrating Easter should be an everyday worship.
Kirksville Baptist Church is busy in preparation of helping others. They will be including their members in the disaster relief recert and certification training at the Tates Creek Baptist Association office on April 13 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.
If you were certified more than three years ago, you will need to be recertified. The cost will be $40.
Don’t forget the Car Show at the Kirksville Community Center on April 20 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will be a show, shine and swap meet.
Plaques will be awarded for the best of the show in each category. Trophies will be awarded at 3 p.m. Registration fee for all entries is $20.
The Easter egg hunt at the Carpenters will be this Sunday after the morning church service. That chance of rain better be a small chance. This is the third try. We are going to succeed this time.
Last Sunday was just too muddy. I would think the parents would have killed me if their child was covered in mud.
I do remember as a child, along with my cousin, Carol, and two other friends, we had a mud fight. It was not a pretty sight, but it was a lot of fun.
However, we were not in our Sunday best.
Hello everyone. The fish fry is back.

When will the ordeal finally be over?
I was just thinking about the ordeal I’ve been going through since Sept. 19.
Life in Stringtown was full of hard work, simple pleasures
I had a chance to visit recently with an old friend, Alene Perkins Long.
Burning bridges and the importance of relationships
“Congratulations on your new job!” You tell a co-worker who announced she would be leaving in a couple of weeks. “Where are you going?” You ask her.
“I’ve landed a job that will put this place to shame! I am so excited about leaving here. This is going to be a great chance to advance my career,” the co-worker tells you.
Ensuring children develop a habit brushing their teeth
“Are you sure you brushed your teeth?” the father asked his son. His son solemnly nodded. His father said, “Let me smell your breath.” The son obligingly opened his mouth. Finally, the father said, “I need to check and see if your toothbrush is wet.”
This type of exchange happens in many households as children often do not brush their teeth, even when told to do so. This nightly inquisition can occur less frequently if parents establish a habit in their children to brush their teeth.
Saturated fat consumption leads to abdominal fat
New research from Uppsala University shows that eating more saturated fat in the diet causes an increase in the amount of fat stored in the abdominal area in comparison with extra consumption of polyunsaturated fat.
County’s oldest consignment sale begins today
The Little Ones’ Consignment Sale, Madison County’s oldest semi-annual sale of its kind, is open to the public 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today (Friday) and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the multi-ministry center behind United Methodist Church, West Main Street, Richmond. Marked items are half price on Saturday.
There’s more to do at the Village Trough
“I wish there was more to do here.”
Do you ever find yourself saying this sentence as you sit there bored out of your mind? Have you heard others ask it?
Well, there is something more to do now that Village Trough in Berea is staging shows with local and regional talent and preparing to open as a full dining and entertainment venue.
Let’s have a Mardi Gras party in Kentucky
It’s the time of year when the people in New Orleans celebrate a festival called Mardi Gras. Many states now do the same. Some call it “Fat Tuesday” which I have never understood till I went to New Orleans (five times) and saw all of the excitement for myself.
Beat the winter blues with meatballs
When it’s this cold outside it’s nice to warm up with some good comfort food.
I can think of few things more wonderful than the smell of simmering meatballs coming from the kitchen while I cuddle with my two young children, and a few good books, on a brisk winter day.
Taste test Thursday
The sun is shining, but the chill has returned, so I hope you made the most of the warm, sunny weather this weekend.
The spring greens are being as tentative as the warm temperatures, but there is talk of lettuce being harvested and a continued trickle of kale, pea shoots, miner’s lettuce and spinach. To make room for the spring harvests, winter squash and sweet potatoes have been marked down to $1/pound and pumpkins are only 50 cents/pound.
