Hello from Baldwin. How is everyone’s week going?
I hope everyone is having a great one.
I know the weather has been beautiful for the first part of the week, but cooler weather and storms are in the forecast, but it has been beautiful so far this week.
With all the rain we have been having, the grass is really growing. I think some people are mowing once a week and some trice here in Baldwin.
The old saying is April showers bring May flowers. If the flowers get any prettier than they have been in April, it will be a glorious sight.
The last couple of weeks, I have been talking about the beautiful trees that are in bloom this spring and they are still blooming. The red buds, pink and white dogwoods, fruit trees, and some I don’t know what they are, but I do love seeing them. Only God can bring such beauty for us to see.
Been seeing gardens planted in the Baldwin area. I have even seen some things growing in my sisters’ gardens.
Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Donnie Kelley, Monday; John McCord and Earlene Thomas, Friday; and Kellie Rosanbalm, Saturday.
I hope all of you have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Happy anniversary wishes go out to two dear friends over in the Newby area, David and Jamie Prewitt, Sunday. I hope you have a happy 41st anniversary and many more happy anniversaries to come.
There was a great turnout at the rabies clinic on Saturday. Eighty pets were vaccinated – 65 dogs and 15 cats received their rabies shots. The Baldwin Ruritan Club and Town and Country Vet Clinic sponsored this rabies clinic.
We would like to thank Gary Short for vaccinating the animals and for all his help. Also, thank you to everyone who helped fill out the information for the people about their dogs.
A special thanks to Curt and Brenda Bogie for the use of their shop to set up the clinic.
I hope I haven’t missed anybody, so thanks to all who helped.
My deepest sympathy goes out to the family of Hobart Carnes. Hobart was my mother’s first cousin and was a very special person. He certainly will be missed by his family and many, many friends. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife Helen and his family at this time and in the days to come.
Well, I guess that’s all for now. Let me know if you hear any news. Just give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

When will the ordeal finally be over?
I was just thinking about the ordeal I’ve been going through since Sept. 19.

I had a chance to visit recently with an old friend, Alene Perkins Long.
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.

Well, there is something more to do now that Village Trough in Berea is staging shows with local and regional talent and preparing to open as a full dining and entertainment venue.
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.
