All Around Bradleyville

We didn’t get much snow in the latest snowstorm, but it did snow off and on for those few days. I saw a news clip on TV that showed somebody’s hummingbird feeder covered in snow with the hummers zipping around in the falling snow, feeding as usual. It didn’t seem to bother them much, and I know the weather didn’t seem to bother them around mine either, they increased in number almost every day. I had at least ten or twelve humming all over the place during the snow and rain.

It was a good day at the Bradleyville Walk/Run last Saturday, even though the temperatures were low. It didn’t seem that cold to me but I don’t know if it was because the wind wasn’t blowing, because I had 4 layers of shirts on, or because I decided at the last moment to walk the mile instead of just watching. Maybe all that had something to do with the reason I broke into a sweat. Going up that last hill on the mile walk is a killer. I don’t walk much because I am missing some of the cartilage in one of my knees and the tendons are kind of weak also, but decided I could walk that far. I did, and I think it would make me feel better if I did that every day. Plus it might make me lose some weight, which I need to do very much.

I won’t try to remember and list all the winners of the walk/run here because I would probably forget someone and I am sure they are probably listed elsewhere in the paper. There was a nice crowd there in spite of the cold damp weather.

Jeff and Cindy Marsh spent last week in Louisiana while Jeff was taking some workshops in Shreveport, and Cindy posted pictures on facebook of Jeff standing under a sign that said Duck Commander and under that it said Buck Commander. I am one of the few people in the world that has never watched Duck Dynasty, so I am not sure what I was looking at, but Cindy and Jeff said they had a good time.

Scott Lawson will be graduating from tech school in Wichita Falls this week and traveling to Whiteman AFB in Missouri for a couple of months. He will be able to come home on the weekends now so we are all excited about that. Garrett will love having Daddy home with him and Julie will love being able to see Scott more even though she is still in the hospital.

Graduation for the Bradleyville seniors and eighth graders will be held on Saturday, May 11 at 7:00 p.m. Our granddaughter, Danielle Crouch will be among the graduating seniors this year. The seniors will be leaving after granduation to go on their senior trip to Panama Beach, Florida. I hope they all have a blast and stay safe.
