Hi! Happy Valentine’s Day!
It seems a lot of folks are celebrating “the day” on Saturday this year.
For instance, Waco Masonic Lodge and Flatwoods Christian Church are sponsoring special Valentine dinners for Saturday night.
Waco 338 Masonic Lodge on College Hill Road is sponsoring a potluck Valentines dinner this Saturday at 6 p.m. Brillian Cain will be preparing the ham. (Yummy says Jim Rogers and we all agree!)
Saturday night is also “Ladies, we love you” dinner at Flatwoods Christian Church.
The men will do all the work (cooking, cleaning, decorating, serving the ladies, etc.)
From the desk of the pastor we have these reminders for the men:
Men, if you want to help with the decorations, meet Bill Wilson at the fellowship hall Saturday at 10 a.m.
If you are helping with the dinner preparation, meet with Phil Herald in the 4:00 to 4:30 p.m. time range.
For the youth, we will do a little differently this year, everyone will go through the food line at the beginning, but we are asking them to bring the red aprons they wore last year and they will be serving drinks, refills, etc.
Looking forward to a great weekend! (I do believe they have a plan, and ladies, all you have to do is show up!)
Congratulations to Waco P.E. teacher Stuart Rose and his wife on the birth of their first child, a precious baby boy! Your students will be so excited!
Of course, there are papaws, mamaws, aunts, uncles, neices and nephews who have been anxiously awaiting the arrival (especially so the last couple of weeks.)
Particulars will come later, but I believe the name Tyler Marshall previously was chosen by the couple for the newborn’s name. Congratulations to everyone!
Happy birthday wishes are sent out to Lucy Beth Anderson, Feb. 14; Jody Plummer, Feb. 16; and Phil Herald and Gavin Holloway, Feb. 20.
Deepest sympathies are extended to the family of Jimmy Roark, who passed away recently. Just wanted you to know you are in the thoughts and prayers of your friends and neighbors at this time.
That’s about it for this week – have a great one!
Get well, Bailey Dickerson – that’s an order!
I need to call Sue.
Prayers also go out (and are requested) for (Uncle) Leon Centers who recently was hospitalized.
Hi! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Eat local and eat with the seasons
This week marks the 44th anniversary of Earth Day, and what could be more important to our survival than clean air, clean water and clean food?
Proper care enables planting of Easter lilies
Did you receive or purchase an Easter lily? If so, be sure to treat it right and you will be able to plant it outside this spring.
4-H Camping Season Nears
Hopefully, we have seen the last of the snow for the year, so now is the time for young people and their parents to begin making plans for an annual summer ritual, 4-H Camp.
These things cause me concern for the future
I was just thinking the other day about things that are happening in this country that do not bode well for the future.
Cruisin’ with the Oldies
With the sound of classic songs wafting through the air Saturday, hundreds of people took advantage of the summer-like temperatures and turned out for the Kirksville Community Center car show.
It’s egg party time
I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.
Where’s the beef?
Today, the American consumer has more money to spend on the widest variety of foods than at any other time in our history.
Easter bunny's ‛eggbeater’ will fly eggs to Richmond
Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?
Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
We old folks have unique experiences
A friend sent this to me by e-mail, and I thought my readers would enjoy it.
