Birthday celebration at Halcomb Knob Farm on Friday

PAINT LICK — It’s a bright and beautiful Tuesday morning here in Paint Lick with a welcome sunshine after the cooler, rainy night, yet we will see an even stranger Wednesday as our weather will turn to freezing rain and maybe some snow!

I know that in my lifetime, I have never seen days like these! I thank my good Lord for all that He sends our way – even the strange stuff – because I do know that one day things will be better.

It’s already a better day for me on this Tuesday, Oct. 22, and I have numerous birthday wishes to send for this week.

I did forget one, Doug’s brother Jimmy Dale Rollins of Dale’s Auto Service in Richmond. He had another year added to his life Oct. 11, and Doug says to say Hi!

And happy birthday. Happy birthday to Jerry Lamb on Oct. 20, to my older sister Emma Anglin of Jackson Holler who will be 83 this Saturday. Ms. Em is one fine lady and I love her dearly. She shares a birthday with Mr. William “Bill “ Hagan of Kirksville, who is honored by his family and many friends on his big day of 90 years young, this coming Saturday.

Happy birthday to Carol Roberts of Paint Lick, Friday. To my good friend, Deborah Messenger, who will turn another chapter year in her life this Sunday.

Deborah is welcoming everyone from the area to her Halcomb’s Knob Farm this Friday evening for a simple fireside supper of her great tasting bean soup and cornbread muffins with mulled apple cider. You are welcome to come, and please, bring your own chair to Deborah’s evening of sharing with her friends.

There is no charge for the supper, unless you would like to bring something along, but a free-will donation will be greatly appreciated. The farm is located off White Lick Road. Turn left onto Old Wallacetown where you can’t miss her home on the knob (right side). If you need any more directions, please call Deborah at 925-9936.

I would like to share this with you. It came from the Internet and a friend who passed it along.

How to Plant Your Garden

First, you come to the garden alone

While the dew is still on the roses

Now, For the Garden of Your Daily Living,

Plant three rows of peas: Peace of mind, Peace of heart and peace of soul.

Plant Four Rows of Squash: squash gossip, squash indifference, squash grumbling and squash selfishness.

Plant Four Rows of Lettuce: lettuce be faithful, lettuce be kind, lettuce be patient and lettuce love one another.

No Garden is Without Turnips: turnip for meetings, turnip for service, turnip to help one another.

To Conclude Your Garden, You must have thyme: Time for God, thyme for each other, thyme for family and thyme for triends

Water freely with patience, and cultivate with love. There is so much fruit in your garden because you reap what you sow.

May God bless

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.
