Welcome back to Beason. I am so behind in bringing you the updated news and happenings from our community. I am hoping to get back on track soon. Of course, I've said that for several weeks now. So, I guess you can hope for the best on that one.
We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the Baker family for the loss of Edgel. I had known him for about 10 years and thought he was a great man. I will miss seeing him wave from his garden. But, I will keep it in my heart.
Congratulations to the Ritchie County Middle/High School Bands for the #1 they received at ratings last week. There were only six 1's given out amongst 26 schools and our county captured 2 of them. So, rock on Rebel Band! We would like to extend our thanks to Dr. Tignor for giving so much of himself to make our band something special.
Allergies are in full bloom here on Beason. I love the smell of lilacs and all the flowers here, but, they make us all miserable. I am sure we should just go ahead and buy stock in the allergy medication companies.
Love is also in the air around the farm. It seems we are having a surplus of kittens here. So, if you feel you would love a kitten, please let me know. It's funny that our Mom cat thinks she can hide her kittens. I just want to tell her, "Kids can sniff out kittens from miles away. Give it up." It's true. We have some excellent kitten detective work going on here. If you lost your kitten, I can hook you up with some kids that can come up with a cat in record time. Oh well, it gives the kids a new challenge to beat their own time.
The kids and I took a road trip to the Youngstown/Cleveland area this past week. We took a tour of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It was simply amazing. If you are into rock history, this is the place to go. It had memorabilia from so many different artists-Elvis, Michael Jackson, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, just to name a few. It was worth the $22 for admission. I was a bit disappointed that picture taking was very limited. After I went, I was hoping to share pictures of everything that I saw. But, no such luck. We did miss the new Grateful Dead exhibit that was to open on April 12th. But, all in all, great experience.
Avery's Little League season is upon us. That means my life has just ended until mid-June. I am hoping he has some time back on the pitcher's mound, but, if not, I am sure he will live. Baseball tends to be his whole world most of the year. So, what position he plays is not that big of a deal to him.
Belated birthday wishes to Brenda and Diana Taylor. Happy Birthday!
Well, last but not least, I would like to add a quote from Dr. Suess. ""Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." Good advice.
