  • A friend of mine posted on Facebook that if April showers bring May flowers, look out.

    So far he has been wrong since it has been May showers too.

    The Carroll County Mesonet station reported 12.38 inches of rain for April, which is about 10 inches more than we received a year ago. We are already at more than 3 inches for May. I have been down to Henderson where the river was higher and there is a lot of land flooded down that way and the radio was reporting that the entire town of Smithland was being evacuated. As bad as it is here, someone else has it worse.

  • I certainly do enjoy being a grandparent. We have had the greatest time in the past month spending time with all five of our grandchildren. 

    Since four of them live in Georgia, we don’t get to see them as often as we like.  This year they were able to visit us at our Florida condo while on spring break, along with their parents. The other grandchild was also on break in Florida, but at Disney World, so we went for the day and had a great time.

  • Dear Mothers,

    As usual, this Mother’s Day we offer confession and ask for leniency.

    The “we” of this confession are men. You may have heard of us.

    We are usually referred to as he or him, Adam, son, husband, dad, brother, chap, mate, or, among friends, baron. We are those persons most likely to wear the same clothes two days in a row and then expect you to wash those clothes. We are the people of whom a T-shirt was once made: “A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.” Remember us now?

  • Quakers, the Religious Society of Friends, also known as “Friends,” will be  meeting for unprogrammed worship every Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m. beginning May 7 at the Port Royal Methodist Church, 8230 Port Royal Road (State Hwy. 193), Port Royal. This informal group is under the guidance of the Lexington Friends Meeting. For information, contact Betsy Packard at dogbydob123@aol.com or (502) 529-1598.
