Hello from Baldwin. How is everyone’s week going?
I hope everyone is having a great one.
Well, we have plenty of ice on the trees, fences and grass here in Baldwin as I write this article on Wednesday morning. So thankful we still have electricity – hope it stays on.
Congratulations to my nephew and his wife, James Paul and Tiffany Smith, on the birth of their new baby girl.
Riley Lynn Smith was born Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013, at 5:36 p.m., in Hardin County Memorial Hospital.
Riley weighed 7 pounds, 9 ounces and was 19 inches in length.
Riley is the baby sister of Alysann Smith of Richmond. She is the granddaughter of Henry and Nelda Smith of Baldwin and Jerry and Lynn McFalls of Lincoln County.
Riley is my great niece. I haven’t gotten to see her yet, but have seen pictures, and she is beautiful.
Her sister, Alysann, her cousin, Kara Jones, and her great aunt and uncle, Myra and Garnett Isbell, were there for her birth. I sure hope to get to see her soon.
Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Wesley Hall and Priscilla Winkler on Wednesday.
I hope you both have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Bo and Anna Robinson on Wednesday.
I hope you have a happy anniversary and many more happy ones to come.
Farmers are fighting the mud to feed there cattle and other animals right now.
We have had a lot of rain and it is so muddy. But, according to the weatherman, we are having an arctic blast next week, so maybe it will freeze the ground and be easier on the farmers and animals.
Well, I guess that’s all the news I have for this week. Let me know if you hear any news. Just give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Observance of Memorial Day began after the Civil War, but the poet Joyce Kilmer wrote these lines as he served in another great conflict, World War I. His words were more than poetic, they were just and honorable. Kilmer is best known for writing “I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree.” He was killed in the Second Battle of the Marne.
Bookmobile coming to Union City this summer
Union City Day was Saturday. The threat of rain discouraged some yard sale participation but overall it was a good day. Fundraising activities by the club raised more than expenses, so that is good news.

Gone in the blink of an eye
One more day of school — yippee!! It sure has felt like summer the past few days, hasn't it? I hope our showers/ storms predicted for today aren’t in the severe category. The folks in Oklahoma have had a tough time of it lately (our prayers are certainly with them).

Try these ‘crocking good’ foods
Crock pots are amazing. A crock pot is worth purchasing if you are like myself always on the go.
You can make anything in it, from desserts to breakfast foods, not just stews and soups. The other side of using one is PATIENCE, and a time for preplanning. If you use your time wisely, your crock pot will make your meal planning easier.

My! How things have changed
I was just thinking the other day about how difficult it is for those of us who are beyond middle age. Things are just not like they were when we were young.
How many of you have noticed that stairs are getting steeper, groceries are getting heavier and everything is much farther away?
