Spring Is On The Way

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - COMMUNITY / OPINION - MARIE ROY WCN Colum­nist

Af­ter miss­ing the pre­vi­ous week’s meet­ing, the Kitchen Band was back in ses­sion Tues­day, with our pi­anist Lorene Schooler re­port­ing she was “feel­ing fine.” Still re­cu­per­at­ing from shoul­der surgery, Jack Thomp­son was there, and he and Ge­orge as usual livened up the meet­ing with “joke time.” Clyde and Phyl­lis Ulm were also wel­comed and they joined in the fun. The group has been in­vited to visit the VA and the date will be an­nounced later.

My kitchen win­dow is “ablaze” with color. Last spring I pruned back two poin­set­tias I had re­ceived for Christ­mas, one small and one larger. The new growth grew fast and by Christ­mas the smaller one had bright red fo­liage. It and a Valen­tine gift of a planter of bright red tulips now fill the space with the bril­liant color. The larger poin­set­tia isn’t so bright but com­ing along, as the old say­ing goes, “as slow as Christ­mas.”

With the much ap­pre­ci­ated rain, the cold air blew in, and it is still win­ter, but spring is on the way. It’s March and March is op­ti­mism month, ex­pect suc­cess, craft, lis­ten­ing aware­ness, peanut, caf­feine aware­ness, frozen food, nutri­tion, ideas, mu­sic in our schools, honor so­ci­ety, youth art, ath­letic train­ing, Red Cross, col­li­sion aware­ness, um­brella, and mirth month. So, look for­ward to March 20, the first day of Spring, and if you wish, March 17, St. Pa­trick’s Day, and whether you want to, or not, March 11, when day­light “sav­ing” time be­gins. Of course we have the rare blue moon, a full moon on the first and last days of the month.

Happy birth­day to Bud Cox, Mikey Roy, Jack­son Griscom, Michael Snarr, Shan­non Yokom, Chris Lut­trell. Spe­cial greet­ings to Lois Usel­ton, Brenna Hutchens, and Ad­di­son Roy, who can cel­e­brate when­ever they wish, be­cause their birth dates were Feb. 29, and there is no 29th this year!

Happy an­niver­sary to Jay and Sandy Nor­ton.

Happy years, all!
