It still feels like winter here

Happy Easter everyone!

What happened to the warm weather? It may be spring, but it feels more like winter in the Ohio Valley area .

My tulips and daffodils are up, though there are lots in full bloom along with hyacinths which don’t last that long, and I love to see them in bloom.

I keep saying I am going to get some hydrangea and never do.

I may as well just tell it like it is. If I could afford it, I would have so many flowers and trees in my yard that there wouldn’t be room for grass to grow.

Once again my son has been in my flowers. I probably won’t have iris blooming this year as during the warm days we had Keith decided to do some yard work digging up and separating my iris.

When I discovered what he was doing, I almost cried. Now I don’t know what colors they are, nor if they will even survive.

He had three five-gallon buckets of iris bulbs and had more laying on the ground.

I have never had such a time trying to have flowers as I’ve had for the past year.

I told him if he would only ask before he does things with my flowers it probably wouldn’t bother me as I have lost a few that were so special to me.

Thanks for those who said they missed my column last week. I’ve been having problems with my eyes again with severe dry eyes, and they burn so bad. I’ve been limited to being on the computer. I have to use eyedrops six to eight times a day.

I really believe the cataract surgery wasn’t a complete success. I’ve never had problems like this before.

Richard Caudill was housebound for a couple of days and then it warmed up enough for Ricky to get back on the four-wheeler and get rolling once again.

Ricky has been busy planting a garden, which means I have to come up with something to barter for some shucky beans this fall.

Ricky’s sister Janie sure has enough snow this winter. I am sure she is ready for some sunshine and warm if not hot temperatures.

Mike and Marcia Caudill have slipped away a few times to enjoy a little time regardless of the weather.

Martha Breeding is home recuperating from back surgery.

Les and Pat Wagner spent several days in the mountains. They attended the benefit for little Luke Polly who is doing some better.

Hello Becky and Polly Hasty, I sure miss everyone.

Doyle and Betty Ison, I haven’t been in touch with you two. I sure hope you are doing alright.

I haven’t heard anything from Johnny and Ann Calihan, so I hope all is well with you.

Vicki Power and I did go out to eat at IHOP for a late breakfast last week as Vicki went to the doctor with me.

Due to another doctor visit, Vicki and I stopped by Izzy’s and had supper this week. And I talk about needing to lose weight.

After my doctor visit Vicki and I went shopping at an unusual place called Bargains and Buyouts in Western Hills. You look at the price, then you can talk them down or barter as they call it. I have never seen anything like that.

I bet there are a lot who are in their highest element of glory due to the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team. I don’t care for sports so it really doesn’t bother me one way or another, but I must say I am glad that Kentucky is doing something right as it seems there have sure been enough negative things lately.

Well, I must get this on its way.
