Hello, friends.

Carol and I took Ethan to the fossil dig at Clifty Falls State Park. The ones in charge of the dig did a great job of telling everyone what to look for. Ethan really enjoyed it.

There was a good article about the Walstons and the 1974 tornado. It was amazing what the people went through when the tornado hit Hanover, Madison, and Bear Branch.

Jason Springer's daughter Madeline had to have Tommy John surgery for an injury she sustained in gymnastics. Get well, Madeline.

Daisy Swanson and Doris Chase attended the Hymn Sing at Bennington. Doris said the music was good.

Carol and I attended the Lent service at New Liberty. Pastor Rick Daugherty gave the message. Great job, Rick.

Mary Jo Meyer's daughter Patty stayed with her mom for a few days. Mary Jo enjoyed their time together.

Dick Schroeder had surgery on his hand. Dick, maybe it will help your golf game. Dick, you get well soon. We miss you and Carol.

Ed and I went to the Cincinnati Reds baseball game. The Reds lost but we had a good time.

Sympathy to the Harry Althoff family. Harry will be greatly missed by his wife Ethel and all who knew him. He was a great man and a friend to everyone.

I haven't heard from Betty Drew for a while. She probably has Dale too busy with his honey do list. Bill, you tell her to let Dale rest every once in a while.

Carol and I attended the science fair at Jeff-Craig Elementary. The kids did a real good job with their exhibits. Ed, Mandy, Jack and Ethan, Pete and Angie attended also.

Happy birthday: Gary Collins, Suzanne Schaub, Michael Rector, Jeanne Konkle, Wilma Swango, Lori Knaus, Chevy Beach, Jacob Williams, Volina Holman, LoriAnn Lozier, Glenn Pavy, Will Schaub, Mary Schaub, Jama Hayes, Eric Williams, Suzanne Rayls, Louie Peelman and Dale Randall.

Phyllis Kelly and Carolyn Puckett stopped by for a visit over the weekend. Phyllis told us that Clarence Jackson, a friend of ours who now lives in Florida, is not well. He is formerly of Dillsboro.

Sunday at church was Palm Sunday. We had a sermon, a business meeting and a great dinner.

Prayer concerns: Candy Powers, Mary Ann Meyer, Tommy and Ann May, Steve Bladen, Sarah Headen, Rick Wainscott, Martha McKee, Frances Martin, Rocky Hollingsworth family, Harry Althoff family, and the families of Louis Rumsey and Delmar Thayer.

Congrratulations to Kim Cox, daughter of David and Debbie Cox. She has been accepted into the pharmacy program at Manchester College.

The last Lent service was held at Switzerland Baptist Church. The choir did a great job and the food prepared by the host church was great. Doris Chase went with Carol and I. We really enjoyed the evening.

If you need a church to come to Easter Sunday come to Fredonia. We are the little rock church by the side of the road on Tapps Ridge. The service starts at 8:30 a.m. Easter Sunday.


Lesson Learned in Life

The older I get the less I care what people think of me.

Therefore the older I get the more I enjoy life.

Good point. So true - so relax and enjoy it.

That is all I have for now. Just wanted to let you know the coffee pot is still on.

Everyone have a great Easter.
