    Displayed near the table is a promissory note signed by Thomas Lincoln as a witness. Among other signatures are Joseph, Thomas, and Luke Mudd who were related to Dr. Samuel Mudd, a conspirator in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

    Thought for the week:

    Over thinking will lead to sadness!

    I so loved the beautiful sunny days we had the first of last week; it sure got you wishing for spring to get here soon. Sunshine didn’t last long enough; ole man winter isn’t through with us yet, unfortunately. Mom is improving every day.

    Thinking of you wishes go out to Cathy LaFollette, Alene Skaggs, Tenley Ward and family. Jean Judd, Billy Duncan, Tommy Wright, Margaret Gowen, Sue Jewell, Rosemary Ford, and Priscilla Brown.
