Rain, rain, glorious rain. It has been such a long time since we have had water running in the ditches. Sure hope we have more between tonight and Friday.



Exciting day here in Sulphur Springs — I hope they catch those young men real soon.

Ran into Lucy McCorkle Monday morning, she gave me a wildflower report. She said that the bluets are in bloom. She said if you notice too that the spring beauties are blooming. Both are very small, and are found close to the ground. I will get my head down — during good weather — and try to give you a wildflower update weekly. I find it fascinating to watch them sort of appear all of a sudden, and before you know it, you will see the ground covered. You just have to look.

We were fishing out in our front pool on Sunday and Tom saw two snakes, mature snakes! So be weary. I made a run to the Post Office on Monday and saw some other people fishing on U.S. Highway 67 spur and they had a gun with them. Guess they were watching for snakes too. So watch out!

Matt Young, our son, was fishing in Brashear the other day and caught several fish. He just did not tell his mother where. Guess he is a typical fisherman, keep the good fishing holes to yourself.

Marie and Ron Bramlett had Ron's parents come down for a visit on Easter Sunday. Marie said that Ron's dad is doing so much better. Glad to hear this good news.

We have a few takers on the turnip greens. The Dinner Bell is serving red beans, cornbread and some of our turnip greens on Wednesday. Hope they turn out well.

If you have anything you would like to contribute to the Brashear Bash, be sure and get it to me before May 15. Brashear Bash will be May 18, and I will need to price and sort the items you bring. Remember I live on County Road 1119 (house off the road with four out buildings and one bulldozer).

Congratulations to the 2013 Soccer Team on winning, and I wish them good luck Friday night against their nemesis, Highland Park.

Testing is going on at the schools this week, so please say a prayer for the students and teachers during this stressful week.

A big thank you to Enola Gay for all her hard work toward the Chili Cook-off last week, which was to fund a memorial for two local cowboys from Sulphur Springs.

We are so excited the land across from us sold. We love having livestock on this land which has been idle for too long. We are looking forward to meeting our new neighbors.

May the rest of your week be filled with love and much rain. Until next week, work hard, live hard and pray constantly and things will be better soon.
