Greetings and a speedy recovery to Bernice Marshall.

Beverly Dierkes of Powhatan Point visited with Dale and Norma Jean Antill. We are looking for more Rabel cousins; very distant, but so interesting.

NJ finally found the legend of the King Cake to New Orleans from France in the 1870s. It honors the three kings who visited baby Jesus. More to follow next year.

Saturday visitors enjoying Mom’s lasagne on Whitacre Lane were Dale Whitacre; daughters Lisa Treadway and children, Amy Datkuliak and daughter; Keith Whitacre and Bonnie Grinell.

March came in like a lion and after many cold days, snow days, and a few sunshine days, March leaves like a lion.

Thomas Jefferson once said, “When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”

From almanac: Now spring has come; the bird rejoice; and chant the cheerful day; the farmer with exulting joys; prepare for April’s day.
A happy birthday on this very day to our number two granddaughter, Lauren.
And happy birthday 103 years to Gladys Danford of Barnesville, mother of Larry Danford on Rt. 260. Coming up on April 4, Helen McHugh Dye Drake of Reno will be 102 on April 4 and her childhood friend, formerly of Old Camp Road, Regina Rosena Knowlton Smith of New Jersey, will be 103 on July 6. Also happy March 19 birthday to Ethel Sloan and Delven Devore, both graduates of Graysville High.
Spring is welcome but let us step backwards to winter by reading the “Nest Eggs” poem written by Jennifer Pringle Lauer as she questioned her great-grandpa, Franklin Dye. ‘What are nest eggs?” My great-grandfather asks as we travel through the country going about our tasks. “I believe it’s money saved,” I reply, “For a rainy spring day.” Like a sly, old fox he says, “Listen to what I’m about to say.” “When winter snow begins to melt and a few tiny mounds still stay, these are called next eggs, so the snow will come again another day.”
Some folks on the getting better list, Ruth Woodyard at home; Grethel Winland Smith at home, Gene Cline, Sheryl Norsen, and Regina Reusser Weddle.
Charles Scott, Yvonne Weckbacher, Judi Nelms, Terry and Janice Pringle, Tammie Rinard, Brenda Mendenhall attended the Skyvue Alumni gathering on Saturday evening.
Recent visitors of Charles Scott included, Mike Scott, Jim and Jan Scott, Devan Powell, Steve Dunn, Greg and Robin Scott of Ravenna, Rhonda and John Dazcko of Kent.

From Almanac by Dazey - “And now the feathery snowflakes slowly fly, In many a mazy circle round and round.”

A conflict on Groundhog Day. Punxsutawney Phil of Gobbler’s Knob, PA, saw his shadow, hence six more weeks of winter weather; but Buckeye Chuck of Warren, OH, predicts spring will soon be here. Newport, OH, has a Turkey Knob; maybe they should watch for a ground pig.

“If winter comes - can spring be far behind” - written by an English poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1792-1832, who wished his poetry to continue, so here we are reading a line.

From the St. Mary’s Oracle...A Newport business, Oopsa Daisy owner Sandra Binegar has a Royal Palm turkey, a pet. His name is Lester and he thinks he is a dog. He rides the pump jack and chases four wheelers, but is afraid of a puppy.

Feb. 9, as the Antills traveled to River High School for grade school basketball games, a white goose was spotted among hundreds of Canadian geese on the Riverside Golf Course.

Happy February 11 birthday to Mary (Mrs. Walter) Parks, the former grocery lady of Marr.
