The trees are budding out and looking so pretty. How are everyone’s irises doing? Ours are doing well. I am looking for some different colors. I hope to have another plant swap later this spring.

We are having great weather, but remember that we are under a red flag warning. With no rain, we need to be very careful when burning. Keep the fire contained and have whatever you need to fight it if it gets out of hand.

We want to remember Carolyn Clark McPherson in our prayers. She had her eyes operated on over the last two weeks. She said it was just like getting new eyes. She can see so much better. We’re glad all went well with her.

The 4-H group has a very busy month of February. Saturday before last, they had their annual fashion show. Aleigh advanced to district with a pair of pajamas she had made. Jorja made some pajamas but cannot advance further than area.

The Junior Livestock Show was held this past weekend at the Hopkins County Regional Civic Center Arena. Jorja won Reserve Champion Goat and Junior Showmanship. Nathan sold last in the sale. Thanks to Carolyn George on keeping up to date on what is going on with the 4-H group.

I heard from Kathy Lennon for the Pilot Club of Sulphur Springs to let us know about the Spring Fever Bike Ride. The date is March 21. The Pilot Club is very proud to be sponsoring this event for this the eighth year.

The Pilot Club is hoping for 500-plus riders this year, weather permitting! The riders leave the Civic Center in Sulphur Springs at 9 a.m., and the majority of them will travel to FM 3389 south to FM 1567 to FM 275 (Miller Grove) to FM 2653 on through Brashear, and then north on 2653 to FM 71 west through Peerless to FM 2285, south back by the Sulphur Springs Lake and on to the Civic Center. This is a tremendous sight to see these riders in all their color and glory riding through our country roadside. The participants come from all over Texas and some adjoining states to enjoy our hospitality. The Pilots are so appreciative of the support each of your communities has given to us over these previous years. We have rest stops at the Miller Grove School and Brashear Baptist Church.

Let’s encourage everyone to watch these riders as they travel through your area and maybe give them a cheer! This is the only fund-raiser for the Pilot Club, and their participation allows us to fund many projects for the coming year with an emphasis on brain-related issues.

If anyone is interested in riding just for fun, they have a 12-mile ride. Thanks again to Kathy for sharing this information.

I have noticed that our neighbors are waving more. I guess the weather tends to make everyone more friendly.

Well, take care until next week. 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 by CR 1119 for a visit with the Youngs.
