Hello from Baldwin.
How is everyone’s week going?
I hope everyone is having a great one.
According to the calendar and the weatherman, spring started yesterday, but it doesn’t feel much like spring does it?
But with the buttercups blooming and the grass greening up, it looks a little like spring. I even saw somebody mowing their yard over the weekend.
It soon will be time to plow the gardens and get them planted. Can’t wait for the fresh vegetables, how about you?
Happy birthday wishes go out next week to a very dear lady who is a dear friend of mine, Diana Wells Ross, Monday; Rodney Dixon and Emily Jones, Tuesday; Amy Dixon, Thursday; Ronald Burrus, Elena Habets and Brian Thomas Hiten, Friday.
I hope all of you have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to my brother-in-law and sister, Henry and Nelda Smith, Friday. They will be celebrating their 38th anniversary. I hope you have a happy one and many more to come.
I had a wonderful time with friends of mine last Saturday at a birthday party in honor of Miss Riley Cate Reynolds.
Riley was celebrating her third birthday. She was surrounded by her family in the fellowship hall of Salem Christian Church on Saturday afternoon. What a great party it was.
Riley is the daughter of Todd and Crystal Reynolds of Poosey Ridge.
Thanks for including me in the festivities, I had a wonderful time.
Salem Christian Church will be having a pre-Easter revival, Thursday, March 28, and Friday, March 29, beginning at 7 o’clock each night.
Bro. Raymond Tincher will be the evangelist for the revival. The church invites you and welcomes you to worship with them.
Well, I guess that’s all for now. If you hear any news, be sure and let me know. Give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at email@example.com.

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.
