Plants and seeds are drowning in Waco

Soggy weather



Soggy weather, soggy weather — sounds like the beginning of a song, doesn’t it? We have had this “song” playing  for a few days now! Our garden needs to be equipped with lifejackets — plants and seeds are drowning! Have you heard the predicted lows for Sunday night into Monday morning? (sh.h.h. "frost" was mentioned.) Perhaps the predictions won't be totally accurate for Sunday -- we would like to have a nice, sunny, warm day for our Mothers on “their” day (well, it could happen!!)

We're thrilled to hear that Norman and Gloria White are doing great after several health-related issues seem to have “been fixed” just in time for their 53rd wedding anniversary on Monday, May 6. Norman will feel like a new person as this year's birthday rolls around on Saturday, May 11 (and that's good news when you have 73 birthday candles to blow out!)

Another “birthday” person who is excited for this year's birthday to roll around is Alicia Lynn Rose, daughter of Tammy and Dennis Rose. Not only does she turn 18 on May 21, she graduates from high school on May 24!! Alicia's sister Heather, brother-in-law J.R., nephew Eli and niece Jolie will be able to come home for her graduation and that’s what you might say is “the icing” on her birthday/graduation cake!!

Speaking of cakes, there are a few more birthdays to remind folks of; namely:  Shaun Muncy (May 11;) Paul Flynn (May 15;) and Lois Easterling (May 19!)

Happy Anniversary cakes may be around for Bill and Pat Wilson on May 11; for Paul and Rene Dunn on May 15 and for Tim and Patricia Jones on May 17!

Speaking of Tim Jones, we have these notes from the Pastor of Flatwoods Christian Church:  Next Sunday evening (May 19) at 6 p.m. “Singspiration” will be held at Flatwoods -- area churches will bring one song each, then a special concert by 64-to-Grayson; refreshments will follow. Everyone is cordially invited to attend of course.

Waco Baptist Church would like to invite everyone to come and hear Chuck McAlister, host of Adventure Bound Outdoors TV show, speak on Wednesday, May 15 at 7 p.m. at the Church. (Thanks for letting us know, Jennifer!)

May 17 and May 24 are two screening registration dates for children who are 3, 4 or 5 (after October 1) for Madison County PreSchool programs. If you have not registered, or have any questions, you are encouraged to call the Madison County PreSchool Department at 625-6037.

Reminder: Flatwoods Cemetery Association, Inc. election of 2013-2014 Board of Directors is fast approaching. If you, or someone you know, would like to have your/their name(s) put on this year's ballot, please let Donna Williams (current President) know, or you may e-mail those names to Keep in mind, the names need to be “in” in time for them to appear on the ballots that will be available for voting preferences on Memorial Day weekend at the Cemetery .

That's about it for this week — have a Wonderful Mother's Day (and a great week following!)

    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.

    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.
