Well, spring is not here yet, but the jonquils are flourishing. You can even tell where old homes used to be by the jonquils blooming in fields.

Everywhere you look you see buds and bulbs sprouting out. Let’s hope the weather gets a little better.
It was sure cold Saturday when we planted our onions and potatoes. We now have collards, turnips, spinach, lettuce and radishes planted, too. Tom hopes to be selling some of his vegetables soon. He often puts a sign out by the road to let everyone know what is in season at the time.
We want to congratulate Albert Reeves on receiving the Caregiver Award at the Chamber of Commerce banquet.
The Brashear Baptist Youth had a full house for their fund-raiser on Sunday. The money goes toward church camp this year, which is in Missouri.
In talking to Eldon Stewart, he informed me that recently they found 79 unmarked burial plots in the Brashear Cemetery. They will soon be marked with markers identifying them as unknown.
Here’s hoping that Wendy Wolfe is on the mend from her back problem last week. Wendy helps out for our Wonderful Wednesday program and she was really missed last Wednesday.
I teach a credit management class once a month for the Justice Department. In researching for this class, I am always on the lookout for ways to save money. Tom calls it being “frugal.” I say it is a way to make ends meet. Some things I share with the class: hanging out clothes, washing only in cold water, Angel Food ministry, turning out lights, getting lower wattage bulbs, and saving aluminum cans for recycling. Aluminum cans also are getting a good price at Reed’s Recycling. If you have any other suggestions, please call.
I want to remind everyone how lucky we are to be alive in Hopkins County. There are so many things available for us to do. At the Senior Citizens Center, there are movie afternoons once a week, crochet classes on Monday afternoons, special speakers on topics relevant to senior citizens, exercise and much more. So check it out.
Thanks to all of you who give me the lowdown on what is going on in Brashear. Thanks to Ron for stopping Monday for a short visit while I was on my walk. Keep up the calls and visits everyone. May God bless and keep you and yours. Please call 903-612-8806, e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , or just come on down.
