  • More snow this morning. I am so ready for spring. I am starting to bark I’ve been in my house for so long. Dobbs is the only one I see. I did get to church yesterday, which was good. Being with other human beings for a couple of hours saved both my religion and my sanity.
    My children are as closed in as I. Ann lives down a long lane from the road and John lives up on a hill. But enough of my housebound whining. I am healthy, I haven’t been anyplace to catch the flu, and if I have lost my marbles talking to Dobbs, only she and I know about it.

  • These past few weeks, my husband and I have been doing a whole lot of nothing.
    We both had a mini version of the flu around New Year’s, and his hung on for the rest of the month. So, we mostly spent time at home doing a whole lot of nothing, which turned out to be something.
    One day we hosed off the back porch. One day my husband cleaned the kitchen.
    We sat in the living room — a lot. We watched back-to-back-to-back reruns of “Law and Order,” the regular version as well as SVU and Criminal Intent.

  • Beech Grove Baptist

    We had another wonderful Sunday this week at Beech Grove.
    Bro. Steve Delaney brought us an excellent sermon from Matthew 16:13-17 titled “Understandings God Would Have Us Gain.”
    We would love to see you here at Beech Grove. We have services at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., Sundays. Also, join us for Sunday school at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., Wednesday, for prayer services. See you soon.

  • In 1800, several families from Virginia, led by John Carlock, William Swango, Jacob Walters, Sr. and John and David Alcorn settled in the valley near Two Mile and Eagle Creeks. These pioneers built their homes and businesses on the south side of Eagle Creek and called their community Ross’s Mill. A few years later, the growing village was known as Brock’s Station, possibly because a small fort (station) was erected in the area for protection against Indian attacks.

  • I didn’t write last week because my number one correspondent was out of the country. I had and have been sitting in my TV room with Dobbs watching television and reading for a month it seems. I did get to the library and got groceries one day. As you can see, nothing to write home about, but Wanda is back from her two-week cruise of the Caribbean with all kinds of exciting things to tell.

  • As the story goes, Chippy the parakeet never saw it coming.
    His owner had decided to use the vacuum cleaner hose to clean out Chippy’s cage — with Chippy still sitting on his perch.
    As Chippy’s owner turned on the vacuum cleaner, the phone rang, and as she reached to answer it, the vacuum cleaner hose moved slightly toward Chippy and — “thwuuupp!”
    Chippy’s owner immediately dropped the phone and tore open the vacuum cleaner bag to rescue a very dusty, very scared bird.

  • Beech Grove Baptist

    We had another great Sunday this past week at Beech Grove. Bro. Steve Delaney brought us two more excellent sermons this week. In the morning, he taught us “Lessons About Forgiveness” from Matthew 18:21-35. Then, we heard “Lessons About Jesus” from Philippians 2:5-11 for our evening service.
    It would be great to see you here at Beech Grove. Our services are at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., Sundays. We also have Sunday school at 10 a.m. and prairie service at 7 p.m., Wednesday. See you soon.
