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!

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.

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.
