Hello, friends.

Well friends you know it is March Madness so let the games begin. I don’t know about you but my bracket is already busted so let the best team win.

Nathan and Donna Hughes stopped by and saw Ed and family and brought them some goodies. Ed really enjoyed visiting with them. Thanks, Nathan and Donna.

Carol, Mandy, Ethan and Jack went to the Ringling Circus last Sunday. What crazy weather, snowing in Vevay and Carol said when they got to Florence, Kentucky there was no snow at all. Ethan and Jack enjoyed the circus.

Ed, Mandy and boys went to the show in Madison. The boys enjoyed the show. Ed needed to get out.

It’s spring break time. Ryan and Liz Bovard and boys spent a couple of days at Great Wolf Lodge.

Ed, Mandy and boys had a busy week. They went to the aquarium one day and Chuck Cheese another day. Mandy, Sammy, Lilly and the boys went to the show and saw “Croods.”

Carol and I got to visit with Jackie Thies Griffin at the Florence Mall. Jackie said her family was all okay. Jackie, it w as great to talk to you.

Ronnie May spent a few days here. He stopped by and visited with Janet Middleton. He also spent time visiting his mom and dad, Tommy and Ann May.

Ed is now taking rehab in Vevay. He is now putting some of his weight on his foot. Thursday morning Carol and I took Ed to the YMCA. They have a chair that lifts you in and out of the pool. Ed really enjoyed that. So did Ethan. He got to swim with his dad. Thanks, Matt, for getting the chair ready for him.

Kim (Turner) Stout and Tyla and daughter Hazel flew out West to visit her daughter Tennile and family in Portland, Oregon.

What is the definition of global warming? Apparently mother nature does not know either.

Randy Turner spent the weekend at Robin’s and babysat Saturday. Isn’t it nice, Randy, when we can spoil them and leave them with their parents?

Carol and I were at the YMCA one day last week when we met a couple we haven’t seen for a long time, Randy and Chris Craig. They are the parents of Brian Craig. Ed and Brian played baseball together in high school. They are also the grandparents of little Gavin Craig who is suffering from cancer. Prayers are needed for Gavin and his family.

Congratulations to Deanna Robinson Dolby for being chosen as employee of the year at Belterra.

Terry Peters’ daughter Jamie had a baby boy March 23rd. They are both doing well.

Carol and I went to the REMC meeting. There were a lot of other people from Switzerland County there also. The food and entertainment was very good.

Carol and I attended the Lenten service at Switzerland Baptist Church Sunday evening. The music was great. The service and fellowship afterward was great too. Thanks Switzerland County for a great evening.

Remember next Sunday is Easter. attend the church of your choice.

Well, that is all I have for now, and remember the coffee pot is always on.
