PAINT LICK —
What a glorious day!
It’s a chilly 22 degrees here in Paint Lick on this Tuesday morning and the wind has even slowed its breath as the sun beams just that much brighter.
The winds of the last couple of days would have cut your breath as you blew through the air ... that little trick whenever we get into the cold, cold air and begin the white, misty, breathing.
This is something I do every day as I feed my animals and let the chickens out for the day. I think keeping busy in the wee hours of the morning keeps me feeling better.
Paint Lick’s new store, G& L Grocery, is accepting federal food coupons. They have milk, bread, butter and eggs, along with lots of canned goods and just about all you may need. They are really reasonable on the prices.
Try visiting the small, welcoming store at 11628 Richmond Road or call 925-9000.
They were out during the colder days of last week visiting with family. I sure did miss them, but I waited to get milk. It, too, is reasonably priced.
Paint Lick Community Arts Center was the place to be last Friday evening, even with the cold, when Sam Gleaves and Friends were on hand for a special evening of music.
The group of five students from Berea College was so enlightening and humorous with so many beautiful ballads. They really can play those instruments ... bass and regular guitar, banjo, fiddle and auto harp.
I really did enjoy the evening and the desserts were fabulous, as usual.
Hal and Yvonne Davis intend to bring the musical group back to Paint Lick. Just watch your local paper for the dates.
There will be an opening reception for a new exhibit featuring paintings, old photos and art objects that relate to the history of Paint Lick.
The arts center is looking for anything you may have to loan for the Thursday through Saturday display.
The showing is filling up fast, so get your items in to our community arts center before Tuesday, Feb. 5.
The showing will begin at 5:30 p.m, Thursday, Feb. 7.
Then, the evening with Rickie Collett and William Ball will begin with a presentation on Historical Artifacts and the skill of “flint knapping.” Special music and refreshments also are planned during the evening.
Seating is limited, so call ahead, 859-925-2741, and reserve your seat for this special event.
The arts center has various classes available, just by calling and asking for information.
Valentine’s Day looks to be extra special this coming month at the arts center. Call them before your time runs out.
A belated birthday greeting to Earl Parker Jr. on Tuesday, Jan. 22.
To Rickie Leigh Gibson, a big wish for a great day on Friday, Jan. 25; to my nephew Gary Thomas Cheeks, Thursday, Jan 24; to nephew Chris Green of University Tire, Friday, Jan. 25; and to a wonderful lady, Sandra Embry “Tudy” on Saturday.
May God bless you all.
