Calv­ing sea­son is in full swing here at our farm as I see it is at many farms in the com­mu­nity. Lots of baby calves bounc­ing around the fields en­joy­ing the sun­shine. I hope ev­ery­one is en­joy­ing good luck; keep up the good work, peo­ple, and en­joy a safe calv­ing sea­son. I didn’t re­al­ize that last week was Farm Safety Week and one of the most com­mon causes of ac­ci­dents are those old habits of do­ing a chore or op­er­a­tion day in and day out that be­comes so rou­tine that we don’t re­al­ize that it is re­ally putting us at risk. Maybe we need to take a look at how we do some of those mo­not­o­nous chores and see if some changes can be made that will make us and the peo­ple around us a lit­tle safer.

First thing I have to men­tion is that I need to apol­o­gize to Tracey and Carver John­son, their daugh­ter Larissa and her beloved, Ja­son. Their won­der­ful new baby boy’s name is Grant Allen Em­mons not Emme­son. Thanks for let­ting me know so I can fix it. Mom, Dad and the baby are all do­ing well and en­joy­ing their new life to­gether in Stet­tler.

On April 8, the Mor­rin Lions are invit­ing the public to cel­e­brate their 25th an­niver­sary as a club. They have booked the mu­si­cal duo “The Great Plains” aka Saskia and Dar­rel. They will en­ter­tain the crowd with folk, celtic and coun­try music fol­lowed by some treats and fun! The whole fam­ily is in­vited to join in on the cel­e­bra­tion. It will be held at the Mor­rin Hall. The Mor­rin Lions will also hold their an­nual Easter Ham Bingo on Wed­nes­day, April 12 so add that to your cal­en­dars.

The Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety will be hold­ing their Spring Fling on Satur­day, April 15. Sup­per will start at 5:00 pm with a silent and live auc­tion to fol­low as well as evening en­ter­tain­ment. Re­mem­ber this is the Dessert Auc­tion where the com­mu­nity ladies bring in those de­light­fully de­lec­ta­ble dishes that are de­sired by a di­verse group of dis­cern­ing bid­ders. Come and join in on the fun.

At the Col­lege Curl­ing Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tions’ Na­tional fi­nals held in Cam­rose this past week­end, we had two lo­cals work­ing hard to bring home the Gold. Gar­rett Holowath was part of the Olds Col­lege Mens Broncs team, they didn’t make it into the medal rounds but they did re­ceive the honor of the “Fair Play” (Most sports­man­ship) award from their fel­low com­peti­tors. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Gar­rett and his team. Katie Prim­rose and her team from Red Deer Col­lege Curl­ing Queens qual­i­fied to go into the medal round and came home with Gold! Con­grat­u­la­tions ladies. They com­peted against Con­cor­dia team from Ed­mon­ton, who they had also com­peted against in Provin­cial com­pe­ti­tion, and it was a very close game as they were tied up com­ing home with the ham­mer. With the skills of her fel­low curlers, Katie was for­tu­nate enough to not have to throw her fi­nal rock to com­plete the win for Gold. Teams came from as far away as On­tario to com­pete so it was a great ex­pe­ri­ence for our small town he­roes of the week! Well done, Gar­rett and Katie. Here’s a gig­gle to share: Bubba and Earl, were driv­ing down the road drink­ing a cou­ple of bot­tles of Bud. The pas­sen­ger, Bubba, said, “Lookey thar up ahead, Earl, it’s a po­lice road­block! We’re gonna get busted fer drinkin’ these here beers!!” “Don’t worry, Bubba,” Earl said.“We’ll just pull over and fin­ish drinkin’ these beers, peel off the la­bel and stick it on our fore­heads, and throw the bot­tles un­der the seat.” “What fer?” asked Bubba.“Just let me do the talkin’, OK?” said Earl. Well, they fin­ished their beers, threw the empty bot­tles un­der the seat, and each put a la­bel on their fore­head. When they reached the road­block, the sher­iff said, “You boys been drinkin’?” “No sir,” Earl said. “We’re on the patch!” Have a great week.
