Easter in Rap­pa­han­nock

The Easter hol­i­day is upon us. The Amissville United Methodist Church’s well-known sil­hou­ettes have been placed along U.S. 211 in Amissville. What a bless­ing to see each one of them to il­lus­trate the events lead­ing up to to the cru­ci­fix­ion of Je­sus Christ.

An Easter gath­er­ing is some­thing that al­most ev­ery fam­ily looks for­ward to. It is a time when fam­ily and friends gather and have a great time en­joy­ing the tra­di­tional din­ner and each other’s com­pany. This is a spe­cial time for ev­ery­one who takes part in this won­der­ful hol­i­day.

To my won­der­ful grand­daugh­ter, Al­lie Fox, a happy birth­day on April 16.

A lit­tle birdie in Wash­ing­ton told me that Paul and Cu­cie Bald­win will cel­e­brate their wed­ding an­niver­sary on Sun­day, April 15. Happy An­niver­sary to you both.

TAX DEAD­LINE

At some point ev­ery spring, we re­mem­ber that it’s tax sea­son and many of us be­gin to panic try­ing to get all the pa­pers to­gether we need. Some years it can be shifty. Yes, it’s sup­posed to be April 15 — un­less some­thing in­ter­feres with the tim­ing. For this year April 15 falls on a week­end, so the dead­line is moved to the next busi­ness day. Thus, the dead­line is April 17.

Have a won­der­ful week.
