The weather can’t seem to make up its mind – cool a day or two and then it gets warmer. It’s now Sunday evening, and the snow is coming down big time. One morning when Paul went out to do his feeding there was a big bunch of geese going north. We saw another bunch Saturday evening. We hope this is...
To start off the week for Monday, we had sewing club. We’re currently working on embroidered blocks for a quilt. Monday afternoon, we celebrated three residents’ and one staff member’s birthday, enjoying red velvet cake and fruit punch at the party. Tuesday, we had some special visitors: Ellen...
Are you looking for an early spring? I am! I’m ready to be through with winter and have it pass on by and bring us some early spring weather.  Tulips and Easter lilies – or jonquils, as some call them – are indications that spring is coming. They come up through the cold soil and bring us a bouquet...
We have had some sunny days and a little rain. Not enough yet to start the creeks running. The wind has been bad a few days. No time for burning. Paul took a load of cedar logs to the cedar mill and had to wait in line to get unloaded. We went to West Plains one evening to get some parts for the...
Editor’s note: some of these items were intended for last week. How time gets away is amazing. As we age, we have a hard time keeping up. Gray hair doesn’t regain its color without help. Having good memories makes life more pleasant.  Have you ever had a flying squirrel in your house, as I did a...
Winter came in full force, with 3 inches of snow and below-zero temperatures last week. I wonder if the up-and-down temperatures has made the colds and flu cases worse. Many people are sick.  I’m thankful I don’t have to feed cattle or cut ice on the ponds, but I can still remember when we did. I...

Last week we had snow, ice and above and below zero temperatures. This Sunday, everything had melted, and I think we have had 60 degrees and above for two days. We now have a little rain coming down and of course all the mud. One day during the snow there were eight deer across the road eating...
During their regular meeting Monday, the Ozark County Commissioners acknowledged that all county offices have submitted their budget requests and said the county budget will be finalized this week. Ozark County County Clerk Brian Wise reported that the budget process is going “as smooth as it...
The sunshine looks good of a morning, but when a door is opened it’s cold out there. It’s that weather for wearing warm long-handles under coveralls and coats.Sunday morning, freezing rain was on the front porch.Paul and I went to the area-wide singing at Curry Church of Christ in West Plains...
