What a wonderful weekend for Mother's Day and graduation!

But, who'd have thought you'd need a jacket?

Cow on_the_loose_500

There was a little excitement in town last week. One of the cows

left at the locker plant decided to go on a walkabout and ended up

behind Ed Goff's and Delbert Eickoff's houses. By the time 

equipment was rounded up to capture it, it had made its way

back down to the hill to its corral mate.

Continued get well wishes to Jack Stilwell, Nancy Crownover,

Roland Rodaway, Rich Lechner, Bill Davis, and Sheila 

Glathar (who finished her last chemo treatment!)

Bob Brandt says the redbud trees planted a few years back

along the cemetery fence are blooming this year.

What a lovely addition they are!
