Hi! Are you feeling as free as a bird this week?
I’m not particularly talking about the weather, although it has been nice lately – we go from winter to summer it seems like.
I was actually talking about tax day – when those tax returns are finally in the mail, it is liberating!
Tax day will be remembered for another reason, sad to say, after the horrific happenings in Boston on Monday. Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone.
Brillian Cain’s “famous” ham will make everyone feel better, don’t you agree?
She will be bringing it to the Waco 338 Masonic Lodge this Saturday, April 20, for the annual Family and Friends Night Potluck (Brillian will bring the ham, but y’all need to bring the fixin’s – vegetables, salads, deserts, etc.) Everyone is invited to come on out for an evening of good food and great fellowship with family and friends.
There are still “slots” left open for the church directory at Flatwoods Christian Church in case you haven’t reserved yours. Just call the church’s number and Brother Tim will fix you up with a time.
This Sunday, April 21, there will be a meeting of the Flatwoods Cemetery Association, Inc., beginning at 2 p.m. in the shelter of Flatwoods Christian Church (weather permitting) or inside the fellowship hall if the weather doesn’t cooperate for an outside meeting.
Don’t forget to begin the application process for your pre-schooler. Call Waco Elementary School to begin the process out this way.
Happy birthday wishes go out to Morgan Campbell, Andy Dunn and Charles Rupard, April 26; Aaron McDonald, April 29; and Larry Shannon Carl up northern Kentucky way (someone will send him the paper, I’m sure) on April 30!
Happy anniversary wishes go out to Tony and Tina Fox, April 16.
Have a great week and watch out for those thunderboomers predicted earlier this week!

Cold-weather horse nutrition
Winter may not arrive officially until Dec. 21, but wintry weather is already here.
Consider these ideas for feeding your horses this winter.
The first thing every horse owner should do is assess your horses’ body condition scores, or the amount of fat they are carrying.
This is simple numeric system, ranging from 1 to 9 that will help you adjust your horses’ diets so they are carrying the perfect amount of body weight.
Choose the right Christmas tree
When choosing a Christmas tree, freshness is the key. To ensure that your tree has optimum freshness, it is best to cut it yourself.
Now, that is not to say that you need to cut one out of your or your neighbor’s yard, but there are several tree farms in central Kentucky.
If you decide not to cut your own tree, there are several tree lots to choose from in the area. Many of the trees found on tree lots will probably not have been cut locally, but instead shipped in from other states such as North Carolina or even Colorado. Ask the vendor where the trees are from.
Winter chill means it’s soup time in Kentucky
I love the winter months because I can try some new and different soups. I use the crock pot for most of all my soups. Here are some recipes you might like to try.
