"Two ears, one mouth, try listening twice as much as you talk."

Good morning — whoa! Okay, look on your calendar? 21st of March, first day of spring. What’s next? Just a short while till Daylight Saving Time. Then, whoa, well after the usual cool time at Easter everybody and his brother will really be a busy, busy work time. To Tri-Bee, sooner the better you better believe, down here on Coon Creek. Oh no, we may not even be recognized. That’s fine and dandy just as long as we can get the brush fires going, keep poison on the ant hills, the lawn mower clucking right along. Well, Tri Bee, what about your meals? Okay they are served on wheels? Just take your peanut butter crackers, a gallon of water along with you, hungry! Eat — thirsty — drink, then you can really be merry.
Too, the Tewksbury family is really going into — no hardly truck farming, more or less you can gather your own or else have the vegetables delivered to your door. From A — Z they will really have it. Where? Across from Coon Creek — Mark and his boys have had the soil tested all kinds of test run. So, what better could you ask for right at your door almost? For an example, hundreds of early plants have been set out. Early seed has been sown, good luck. After all, let’s be thankful we have the soil here in our country — have been set free. Be careful we’ll reap what we sow — sow seeds of kindness. Keep smiling.

Mary Alice Brewer has more or less become adjusted to the nursing home in Covington and has shown some slight improvement.
Lillian Bryant in the Buckhead area spends lonely days, as she has become more or less a bed patient. So lets not get too wrapped up in ourselves. There’s numbers of people who are not only sick but also lonely.
Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Clothiers had their family from North Carolina with them during the weekend.
The Jake Wilson’s house on 441 was opened up from all corners. The Alligoods, Bertie Mae and Leon from Tennessee were with the families over the weekend. Too, the Bruce Harper, Marty Wilson’s family, Mark and Carrie, Jacob Wilkins. We are sure they all had the joy of feasting around the table. There’s always something going on that keeps the whole family very active.
Evidently it is a good month for birthdays. Yes the "Jubilee’s" went all out in a very big way, and it being a special day. Well, where? Okay, down below Buckhead on Parks Mill Road, a small but a real quiet restaurant called "Katy’s Korner." Yes, if you have a taste for a "chili dog" they have it on their menu, which is listed. They have it all. With the exception of our youngest sister, Blanche, all were there. Oh yes, Blanche is drawing her Social Security and has been for -

It’s so nice when you walk into a small shopping shop like what? Yes, Joseph’s Coat. There on the counter is a long prayer list. All Christian Books, such as Daily Breads, then as customers come in they greet you with a very warm welcome. Soft Christian music, plus all the deeds passed from one to the other. The worker can usually tell where there is a special need, plus everything is placed and hung in order. So let’s support a caring place. If you have on an outfit, well where? Joseph’s Coat.
