  • Roger Alford: What do you call a parrot that doesn’t talk? Delicious

    I love the story about the homesick son who wanted to buy his mom the perfect gift. He searched through every store but nothing struck a chord until he walked into a pet shop and found a parrot that spoke five languages. He immediately paid big bucks for the bird and shipped it home to his mother. A few days later he called and asked her how she liked the parrot. His mom responded, “It was delicious.”
    The son was sad that his mom had eaten a bird that spoke all those languages. Her response: “Well, why didn’t it say something?”

  • Kay’s Branch News: Beautiful weather highlights special holiday

    In case somebody out there slept through it, this past Easter weekend was beautiful.
    It neither rained nor snowed on our parade. All the local churches were full. Old Cedar had a beautiful morning for their sunrise service on the hill behind the church.
    There were Easter egg hunts and family dinners, the New–True Clan gathered at Barbara’s for dinner, Fay and Bruce went to her brother Gary’s in Scott County after church to spend some time with the family. I’m sure there were children to hunt Easter eggs at all these gatherings.
