It was easy to en­joy the spring-like con­di­tions this week­end as the ground is dry­ing up and the calves are ar­riv­ing quickly day af­ter day. I hope ev­ery­one is en­joy­ing the sun­shine.

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 Ag So­ci­ety’s Spring Fling is fast ap­proach­ing with a steak sup­per of­fered up for ev­ery­one and a fun live auc­tion of some very de­li­cious desserts to buy. It is a great op­por­tu­nity to sup­port our lo­cal Ag So­ci­ety and all the great things they do for the com­mu­nity, hall and curl­ing rink. Mark your cal­en­dars for April 15 with sup­per start­ing at 5:00 p.m. and Live and Silent Auc­tion to fol­low.

Here’s some­thing to make you gig­gle:

Jack, a hand­some man, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 pm. He sat down next to this blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV...

The 10:00 news was on. The news crew was cov­er­ing a story of a man on a ledge of a large build­ing pre­par­ing to jump. The blonde looked at Jack and said, ‘ Do you think he’ll jump?’ Jack says, ‘ You know what, I bet he will.’ The blonde replied, ‘ Well, I bet he won’t.’ Jack placed $30 on the bar and said, ‘ You’re on!’

Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the build­ing, fall­ing to his death. The blonde was very up­set and handed her $30 to Jack, say­ing, ‘Fair’s fair... Here’s your money.’ Jack replied, ‘I can’t take your money, I saw this ear­lier on the 5 o’clock news and knew he would jump.

‘The blonde replies, ‘I did too; but I didn’t think he’d do it again.’ Jack took the money.

Have a great week.
