Beason would like to extend our sympathy to the family and friends of the Flanagan family of Calhoun County. Our hearts will be with them as they go through this very difficult time.

Baseball and T-Ball has begun with a bang! T-Ball has already had a scrimmage game and their first regular game. Avery plays second base and is very serious about his game. He and Bailey Riddle are often a force to be reckoned with. They make for some very exciting first and second base plays. Bailey is the son of Joy and Steve Riddle and the little brother of Riley Gruetter. I love T-Ball because there isn't a lot of drama that can't be solved with some ice cream from Nana's. A big thank you goes out to Nana's for all their patience with our baseball teams. The kids look forward to seeing you guys every spring.

We survived a visit from the Easter Bunny. No one suffered any overdoses of Reese's peanut butter eggs. I came pretty close, but, as a former member of Reeseholics Anonymous I knew when to say when. We spent Saturday and some of Sunday at my Mom's with my brothers and my sister. Unfortunately, we don't see each other very often. When we do, there is never a dull moment during a Robinson family holiday weekend. We are all very excited about my brother's son's upcoming graduation from the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut.

A member of the Main Street Beauty Mafia had a birthday recently. Rumor has it she was given a party that only the elite were invited to attend. Rumor also has it that tiaras and Mardi Gras beads were involved. That sounds like a pretty classy party, doesn't it?

Are you still tuning into Idol? I haven't been as anxious as I had been to watch every week. My favorites are still Allison and Adam, so, I do look forward to watching them perform. But, it's not something I have to run home to watch right away. That's what the magical thing called "DVR" is for.

I am so glad Spring Break is over. I loved spending time with my kids, but, I really need a break from MASH re-runs before summer vacation. I am pretty certain my sons could quote every line from every episode. We pay for 20,000 TV channels and we continue to watch MASH. As soon as I would cut down our channels, someone would throw a fit to watch something else. It seems things always happen like that.

I want to thank my buddy, T.I., for giving me a ride on the Harley. The last time I had been on a bike was probably 30 years ago on my brother's Yamaha. I knew that motorcycles had come a long way over the years, but, this was unbelievable. I never realized how much nature one misses out on in car until I got on the back of this bike. It was a great experience. I would never own one, of course, but, I can see why so many love them.

My choice of the week is, "Blue Jeans and a Rosary" by Kid Rock.

Have a great week.
