The Baggage Handler

There was once a man who travelled far and wide. Although he travelled extensively and constantly, he only carried one bag with him, which he kept within his reach at all times. This bag did not contain any worldly treasure. It merely contained mementos of his life which the Traveler could not bear to part with.

Spring has sprung in the Dry Creek Valley. We are seeing the first blooms of the season. Around our house several new pots of flowers have been planted from the ones we managed to keep through the winter. The onion sets were planted in one container in hopes of a few green onions. There really is nothing like fresh garden vegetables. We look forward to a successful garden year for all the growers.

Needmore Days

Thinking about things earlier and made myself sad. These longer days caused Laura and me to go visit a while before dark. Made me remember the days of long ago when I was a boy and the neighbors would visit in the community late in the day for a little while. My mind took me out the road where I lived and good friends of long ago, and I realized they are all gone now. And that warm and friendly place remember is now cold and sad.

Every now and again we all need a little help. One person who helps me by cleaning my house also helps animals. Shandi Sandlin has been a name I have known since she was born. And I have had the pleasure of hearing stories of dogs being starved or abused, or abandoned, then Shandi getting them, helping them recover, and finally getting them a home and family.

From A Cracked Pot

In loving memory of Mr. Ben Herman, who never failed to teach his students life lessons through his stories of ‘Pee Wee’. He always had a smile for me when I went to Wal-Mart and always spoke fondly of all his ‘kids’. He touched many lives and was certainly an encouragement to me. We love you Mr. Ben; you will be sorely missed.

We send happy first birthday wishes to Molly Adeline Reynolds, the daughter of David and Monica Reynolds of Alexandria. Molly’s birthday was celebrated by family and friends last Saturday at the Dry Creek Baptist Fellowship Hall. The birthday party was decorated with a nursery rhyme theme. The Three Blind Mice gathered around a cheese tray, deviled eggs represented Humpty Dumpty, and pork mini sandwiches were surrounded by the Three Little Pigs. Cake and punch was served to the guest, and in the afternoon Molly opened all of her useful gifts. A fun time was had by children and adults.
