Finally, the March winds are over. However, I’m sure some of you remember the rhyme, “April showers bring May flowers.” I’m also sure we will have a few more showers. We are so blessed beyond our appreciation. Even the purple weeds and yellow dandelions have such beautiful colors. Don’t get me wrong, I like a pretty green lawn, mine will be sprayed soon, but the nature of God’s Earth is beautiful.
I had the opportunity to watch my grandson, Chase Kidd, pitch in the baseball game Friday night, here at home field in Brighton. It was special to me because it was his 17th birthday. I know for a fact he had a good one, because he had several dinner parties over the weekend. My daughter from Centerville, Terri Barber, and her two boys, Dalton and Wyatt, visited last week, as they were also on spring break. We all took Chase out to Shogun (in Memphis) Thursday evening. That only started Chase’s celebration. I think they continued to party all weekend at various locations.
Dixie, the little dog of my neighbor, Mrs. Mary Alice McDaniels, came up missing last week during that horrible storm. By the time Dixie was missing for three days, Mary Alice was really broken hearted. Our animals are such an attachment to our families. There is a great ending to this story! Mrs. Patsy Fee found Dixie beside her carport Sunday afternoon. Several of the McDaniels’ family went to retrieve her and to thank Miss Patsy. This is part of our neighborhood watch, you might say. Way to go, Patsy! Mary Alice says she’ll not scold Dixie again for a long time.
Speaking of neighborhood watch, tonight, April 3, at 6:30 will be the annual meeting. If you’re available, please try and make it; our county is growing so fast, this is a much-needed service for all. A representative of the sheriff's office will be there to answer your questions.
