Lucy McCorkle called on Monday evening with this week's wildflower report. She wants us to look for the lemon paintbrush and drummond, which are wild onions with red tops. She hopes you are watching for these flowers. Our back pasture is loaded with regular Indian paintbrush. Beautiful.

This morning, I heard on KSST that a local man bought a calf and then turned around and donated it again. It was sold 15 times for approximately $10,000 to be donated to the West community. They said this was happening all around the state, too. Good things are going on to help others in need.

Please note that they are selling yard signs to help assist the Carmody family. Their 4-year-old daughter has recently been diagnosed with leukemia and is undergoing chemo. You may purchase a yard sign at Central Baptist Church; the funds will go to helping pay the medical bill for Phoebe. Please pray for Phoebe and the Carmody family.


Well, it has finally happened. P31 has come to Brashear and I am so excited for the 27 ladies that met tonight to begin this journey. So excited. Not too late, you can go to P31fitness.com, click on location (Brashear) and register. We will be meeting Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Family Life Building of Brashear Baptist Church. Come join all of us who are beginning a new healthy chapter in our lives.

Visited with Becky Burns. She said that David had to replant some things in their garden. She says this crazy weather has some of the plants confused. I guess we all are. I hear the temperature for Thursday may drop almost 60 degrees some places in Texas. We just hope there is no freeze. Crazy, huh?

I have hit a wall in dealing with Medicaid with my mother's medicine. Do they really think everyone can understand this even if they can read? I need help. I hope all of you can figure it out.

The youth of Brashear Baptist Church want to thank everyone for helping their stew/auction sale. The youth made over $6,100 for their youth to go to camp this summer.

We went to the FFA Project Show on Saturday. We purchased some flowers for our flowerbeds. The youth of SSHS do a great job. This is also a great way to support our youth.

Brashear Bash is coming! Mark your calendar, May 18. Contact Linda Almon or myself if you are interested in saving a spot to sell your items. Call one of us and reserve a spot for $5. You may pay us on the morning of the bash. There will be someone there on Friday if you want to set up early. On the day of the sale, the doors will be opened up early. The youth will have the concession stand and will be serving baked potatoes for lunch. They are being sponsored by Cumby Telephone. The Bash is an opportunity for you to clean out house, closets and storage buildings and make some extra money. There will also be some donated items, which I will be there selling, with the money earned to go to the Community Center. We have always done well in earning enough money to help keep our Community Center in good shape.

Sure has been beautiful week weather-wise. The next few days will be a little different weather-wise, but enjoy. I would love to hear from you about what is going on in your neck of the woods. Remember to take time to remember to smile for that may be the only smile some see during their day. Call me at 903-612-8806; email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
