Well, it’s official, Thurman is married to an older woman once again. I am from March 21st to April 15th older than him and every year he gets a kick out of saying “Well, I’m married to an older woman again.” I think he says that before he says Happy Birthday. Thanks to all who took the time to wish this ole gal a Happy Birthday and make her feel really special. It seems turning 65 seemed a big deal to everyone but me.
Remember Ann Walker who is in the hospital in Nashville. Also, Marilyn Stevens is in the hospital in Bowling Green, Sharon Penick is in Creekwood and Roger Lindsey’s mother is sick. Please remember all these in your prayers. Sad to hear so many sick at this time. I know there are others that I don’t know about so just lift all the sick in our community up in your prayers.
As many of you know, Sarah Shoulders is retiring the last of May, and her position will be filled by Kim Fowler. Kim will be starting around the first of April. Kim is currently taking online classes to get a degree in accounting and plans to continue her pursuit of that degree. She will also continue as Cemetery Sexton which will work out well with her being at City Hall. Go by and welcome Kim to the City family.
Coffee Bottom Girl
Some of you may have heard Nick Riggins, Matt Jenkins, and me on the radio with Don Neagle this week. I had so much fun with these guys and their new CD is amazing. Nick talked about how all the songs are a result of his growing up in and around Adairville and Logan County. As the different songs were played, I could almost close my eyes and remember my younger days. Maybe 10 and my daddy would be spending the night in the tobacco barn watching the fires, being in the truck stop as a teenager and many memories from those days. I was coming back Bowling Green yesterday afternoon and just had to swing though Coffee Bottom. Went by the farm I lived on and the barn daddy would sit up at night in. There is a trailer on the property now where the house set but I could still see us playing ball in that front yard. So many memories flooded back as I drove slowly by especially after listening to those songs. I can’t wait for everyone to hear this group. They are going to rock Adairville on the 21st. They also issued a challenge to all the area schools to see which school had the most show up at the Country April 1 and at the festival on the 21st. So Adairville, get on the ball and make your plans to support our own hometown young man.
A Hui Hou Kā’Kou
“May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand”
