Don’t Stop Laugh­ing

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - COMMUNITY - Lin­coln Life­styles MARIE ROY WCN Colum­nist

Tues­day was Ge­orge and Lorene Schooler’s an­niver­sary and they shared a big cake with all those in the Lin­coln Cen­ter, in cel­e­bra­tion. All of our best wishes for this spe­cial cou­ple, with many more to come.

It was also an­other fun day with the Kitchen Band, and some spe­cial fun was en­joyed as Ge­orge tried to ex­plain some jokes to those of us who “just didn’t get it.” This group be­lieves in the say­ing: “You don’t stop laugh­ing be­cause you grow old, you grow old be­cause you stopped laugh­ing.” Then too, con­sider Proverbs 7:22, “A merry heart doth good like a medicine.”

Day­light sav­ing time be­gins this Sun­day, March 11, time to set our clocks ahead one hour Sat­ur­day night, to be sure, else you might think it is 6 and too early to get up, but it will re­ally be 7, time to hurry or be late for church.

Cookie ex­change meet­ing in the li­brary is next Mon­day, March 12, at 1 p.m. so take a fa­vorite recipe to share, and you might find one that “hits the spot.”

How about this rain that we re­ally had needed! Though it was way too much in places, with flood­ing and dam­aged roads, it came in time to start a good Spring growth. The fields, seem­ingly over-night, are now green in­stead of the dreary tan of the past month.

I en­joyed watch­ing two great-grand­sons, as they helped their dad and grand­dad check the pas­tures and cows. They sloshed through every pud­dle (good thing they had boots on) and when they rode the four wheeler they hit the mid­dle of all those pud­dles. When we have an­other dry spell, those boys will re­mem­ber the fun they had when it did rain.

Happy birth­day to Peggy Cur­tis, Dick Bradley, Lon­nie Shan­non, Dal­ton Brun­ner, Char­lie Pitts, Myrtle Ray, Ron­nie Cham­b­liss, Johnnny Cham­b­liss, Lisa Rawls, Robin Ge­orge.

Happy an­niver­sary to Dustin and Tiffany Long, Barry and Ni­cole Evans.

Happy years, all!

“You don’t stop laugh­ing be­cause you grow old, you grow old be­cause you stopped laugh­ing.”
