I have to brag on my church’s youth group. Their play, “The Bible Tells Me So,” at The Full Gospel Tabernacle on Sunday night was great.
It was funny, yet spiritually moving.
The work involved to get it together took a small army that was made up a few adults and the kids. The work was worth it all. Everyone who was there was blessed.
I wish it had been videoed for all to see. It proves the youth of today are standing up for their Christian beliefs. Thanks again for all the dedication.
Duane is retiring Friday from EKU. He choose to take the special early retirement offer. People ask if I have made my “honey-do list.” I have, but he keeps tearing it up.
He plans to do a lot of laundry, dishes, dusting and mopping. Oh, that was on my list; just forget it. I am sure he will stay busy. Hay season is not over yet. Congratulations, Duane, but I hope you don’t drive me crazy.
Kirksville has lost another one of our family with the passing of Jimmy Hampton. We will all miss him. Keep his family in your prayers.
Duane and I took part oin Kentucky Educational Television’s collectables show. It was so much fun. We will not know if we will be seen on TV when it airs. We had four interesting items but did not come away as millionaires.

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.

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.
