Well, the storm damage clean-up is still under way. Please be kind and help your neighbors! We are blessed that there were no lives taken in this storm.

The rains continue to come, but that may be a blessing. I think that last year we stopped having rain up here on the hill the 1st of April. The drought sure took a toll, too.

We have had a slow start of getting our garden going with the wet ground, high winds, cool temps and just not enough hours in the day! I sure am looking forward to fresh tomatoes and salads.

Correction: We wish to extend our congratulations to Amanda and James Berger on their new arrival Hunter.

Congratulations to Wayne and Nancy Smith on their 30th wedding anniversary on April 30th.

Decoration will be held at Half Moon Church on Sunday, May 19.

Fun, Freedom, Warmth and Communication are the key components to any relationship. You have to have fun with the person you are with. You have to have the freedom to be yourself. You have to have the love and warmth of another to put a smile on your face and you have to be able to talk and really listen to one another. Happy anniversary to the man who meets all those needs and more for me, Sean Sikes.
