    Thought for the week: Nothing is permanent. Don’t stress yourself too much because no matter how bad the situation is....it will change.

    Snow or rain, it just can’t make up its mind. Hopefully, when the first day of spring gets here it will be more sunshine and warmer temperatures. One can only hope.

    March Madness is in the air. I have never filled out a bracket before, but I did this year just for me to see how it goes. Good luck everyone and may the best team win.

  • Lost in LaRue - March 15, 2017

    Spring is my favorite time to drive around, but it isn’t to see the budding trees and beautiful spring flowers. I like to drive around during spring because a particular flower gives an idea of what homesteads dotted the landscape and are no longer standing as a testament to the people who lived there. If you haven’t guessed what I’m talking about, it’s daffodils.
