Spring Is On The Way
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!
