New baby in Newby

NEWBY — Charlie and Annabelle presented James and Rose Anne House with a beautiful baby girl last week. Her name is Mary Lou. Her father, Charlie, is a stallion and her mother, Annabelle, is a jenny. Their offspring is called a “henny.” Only one in 10 attempts might produce a henny. They are rare.

I met Mary Lou on Monday and she is beautiful. She is as soft as a cotton ball, has beautiful markings and a very sweet disposition. I’ll enjoy having her for a neighbor. Some may think it strange, but I love to hear Annabelle braying across the hill.

Helping the other team

This story comes from Helen Jenkins Carnes, age 90, in her own words.

“I was a freshman at Newby High School in 1936 and was a member of the the girl’s basketball “B” team. Our varsity team was playing Miller High School and was losing badly; in fact, by half time Newby had not scored a single point. So, at half time our coach replaced the entire team with the “B” team.

“Well! Now we could show Miller what we had! I got the first chance after the second half began. The ball went into the basket, never touching the rim. The only problem was that I had forgotten that we were to change goals at the half, so I scored two points for Miller!

“I was so horrified by what I had done that I told my mother that she would have to find me another school, that I could never live this down. She tried to assure me that they would soon forget what I had done and would target someone else. Of course I didn't believe her, but that is exactly what happened. But I never forgot!”

Church rummage sale

Newby Union Church has set a date for their Church Rummage Sale. It will be July 11, 12 and 13 at the Clowers Corner Market at 122 Battlefield Memorial Hwy. A huge thank you to all those who support us. Hope to see you there.

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

    Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
