Keep February 18th on your calendar for the February Potluck at Snow Community at 6:30 p.m. We encourage everyone to come enjoy food and festivitie­s. I received a message from one of the founding fathers of Snow Community late last week. Her name is Lori Pool. Her grandfathe­r L.C. Pool, he was born on July 18, 1937 in One Creek Valley of Finley, OK, the son of Bud Pool and Myrtle (Smith) Pool. He passed from this life on December 29, 2022 in Antlers, OK at the age of 85 years. L.C. married Ada Williams on October 19, 1960 in Paris, TX. He is preceded in death by his wife, Ada Pool; daughter, Leticia Joy Pool; parents, Bud and Myrtle Pool; brothers, RL Pool, Merl Pool, Marvin Pool, Earl Pool; sister, Rethie Pool; and granddaugh­ter, Shawnlynn Pool; and great-granddaugh­ter, Alissa May Pool-Heady.

L.C. was an amazing artist. He loved to paint, landscape and do art with metal. L.C. enjoyed collecting western belts and had collected over 100 belts over the years. He had a passion for going to estate sales and buying the unknown. L.C. loved history books, enjoyed collecting old music but especially loved collecting old books. He found great joy having conversati­on with his niece, Lori Williams. His granddaugh­ter Lori is giving one of his best interpreta­tions of the old Snow School House. Complete with the old basketball goal and the two outhouses. Please come to the community potluck to see this wonderful painting. Thanks again goes out to Lori Pool for her kind thoughts. She had said her grandfathe­r wanted his picture to be donated to the Snow Community building. What a very kind man.

One of our Snow neighbors shared a great story. The mouse looked through the crack and saw the farmer and his wife opening a package. What food could this be? But he was devastated to see that the package contained a mousetrap. He retreated to the farmyard and shouted, “There’s a mousetrap in the house! There’s a mousetrap in the house!”

The chicken clucked and said, “I can see you’re concerned about this, Mouse, but it’s of no concern to me.”

The mouse ran to the pig and shouted, “There’s a mousetrap in the house!” The pig said, “Too bad. But it’s not of any concern to me.”

The mouse 1.40-3.0250 1.35-2.6 1.40-2.43 1.71-2.27 1.51-2.00 $1250-1650 NT .85-1.03 .40-.84 .90-1.14 NT NT ran to the cow, and he said, “There’s a mousetrap in the house!” The cow said, “I can see your concern, but it’s no skin off my nose.”

The little mouse went back very sadly to face the mousetrap alone. That night there was the sound of the trap catching its prey. The farmer’s wife rushed to the trap. In the dark she did not see that the trap had captured the tail of a poisonous snake. The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer’s wife developed a bad fever.

As you know, when someone gets a fever, what do you feed her? Chicken soup! The farmer got his ax and went to the farmyard to get the main ingredient.

The wife’s illness continued. Many people came to visit her. The farmer needed to feed them all. He went to the farmyard once again and slaughtere­d the pig.

Unfortunat­ely, the farmer’s wife passed away from her illness. There was a large funeral, and of course the folks at the funeral needed to be fed. Once again, the farmer went to the farmyard, and this time he got the cow.

The moral of this story is that when one of us is threatened, all of us are at risk. Each of our problems is of concern to another.

We want to wish everyone a belated Valentines Day. Although, a special isn’t needed to show your love to the ones you care for every day. It’s just a plus day to recognize the love for each other. And in case you have been away on another planet, it’s not too late to show them your love. All the Valentine’s goodies are on sale now!!

A temporary halt is being put on the recycled cans. The location in Antlers has shut down their facilities where we took the cans. Until we can find a location close, we are stopping collecting cans. Sorry for the inconvenie­nt. I will let everyone know when we can resume recycling.

Please keep your loved ones in your prayers always. Time is just a fleeting thing. Thanks to everyone that has been helping keep the land around the community building nice and clean. Also, the Finley Community normally has a lunch on each Friday at noon. Days Finley are not open or only doing take outs will be posted on their Facebook page. Anyone wanting to add to the article please turn them in before Friday at 5 p.m. Additions can be emailed to me at: freylake12­3@ or call me at 580-208-0870, Have a blessed week.
