Happy to be a part of life

Raining in Paint Lick

By Katie Rollins

PAINT LICK — It's a wonderful Tuesday morning and I am happy to be a part of life. The rain has slowed for a bit, but the clouds still linger, so more rain is on the way. Thelma and I heard the weather for the week ahead and we may get a visit from 'old man Jack Frost by the middle of the month. I just pray the rain will hold off...the Paint Lick creek is flowing strong and wild this very morning.

Cookies, cookies and more cookies at the Community Farmer's Market off Old Wallacetown Rd. These are made by members of Kentucky Proud products and Deborah has them for sale at her booth. Good cookies.

Glenda McQuerry has her really good looking plants and herbs and Maria with all the organic eggs is selling well too. If you are interested in displaying a table, just bring your products by the market and they will show you where to place your vegetable plants, herbs, breads and even cookies The market is going strong each Friday through September and lasts from 4-6 p.m. On your way home from work, you can stop by and take a look.

This Saturday, May 11 is the Fifth Annual Herb and Crafts Festival at the Governor William Owsley House on Stanford Rd. just out of Lancaster. The festival is sponsored by Nature's Thyme Herb Group and Glenda McQuerry welcomes everyone to join them from 10-3 p.m., when you can see a display of herbal items, plants and seeds, handcrafted items and baked goods. 

I have a neighbor who has vegetable plants for sale and it's located right here in Paint Lick on Short Rd. You can reach Tony and Debbie Dale at 925-3003. If you like, Debbie also has baskets of beautiful flowers that would make great Mother's Day gifts. You can't miss the sign "plants for sale," so stop by and take a look.

A well known car racing fan sends 'congratulations' to Garrard Countian, Dustin Linville, better known as "the rooster" on winning the big race held at Junction City.

A great tip from our pastor, Ted Faulconer ... to be rid of those unsightly water spots that may form on a beautiful piece of furniture ... try a soft rubbing with non-gel toothpaste and some baking soda mix leaving it be for at least 24 hours, then clean as you usually would. It works.

Happy birthday to Mrs. Barbara Faulconer, May 13 and to Debbie Parker, May14 and last but not least, send a card to Anna Egner on her special birthday, May 17. Anna is very strong willed in our church when she gets to join us and she shares a birthday wish with our own Mike Hawley and a dear friend of all volunteers here at FOPL, Rena Taylor also on May 17. Happy Mother's Day to my sisters, Linda, Bernice, Lydia, and especially to Peggy and Emma, a wonderful Mothers' Day to you and all “Moms".  May God Bless
