“Down By The River”
Tonight I went to our first meeting for Lockhart’s Festival, “Down By The River” sponsored by Jacob’s Well and Jubilee Ministry. The festival will be held on April 6 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. If you are a vendor and want to join in, please contact Barry Canupp. Just a few of the highlights so far: We will have gospel singing by Erin Bobo and Amy House; at 5 p.m. it will be Kellie Allen and Pattie Turner; at 6 p.m. the Childers (Jantzen, Eric, and Jay); at 7 p.m. the Riverside Boys. Also singing will be Gina Childers, Luke Jenkins, and Pat Johnson. Do I have your interest so far?
We will have a couple of Classic Car Clubs showing their cars off. Team Aruba, slides, corn hole tournaments, face painting, woodcarvers, and we’re working on some more activities.
We will also have a Motorcycle Run. Registration is the day of the event, there will not be an early registration. Registration is from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lockhart Town Square. Kickstands up at 1:15 p.m. The Blessing of the Bikes will be following the ride, where you will receive a patch. Entry fee will be $10 with a $5 passenger fee.
As I mentioned before, I will keep you updated to our plans, but I hope you put us on your calender for April 6.
Happy Valentine’s Day, February 14. I hope you didn’t forget your sweetheart Thursday, because it’s really hard to get out of the dog house. Unless you’re like my husband was, one special occasion was just like another one. Just another day. And I did tell you last year at this time about my special valentine from him, but in case you didn’t read my column last year I’ll repeat it, because it’s kind of amusing.
He was a Shriner and would go off to different meetings, and always come home real late. So Valentine’s night I was asleep and he came in and woke me up and gave me a big red Valentine box of candy, which I told him that was really sweet of him to think of me. He said that they had sold them at the meeting he went to and they had just one left so he bought it. Yeah! He used to buy me tires for our car on my birthday, also.
Wesley Chapel celebrated the burning of their mortgage Sunday, and had a dinner afterwards.

Building A Gate
If you are one of my customers, then you’ve noticed that I’ve put up a gate on my shop porch. The first day I had to keep going out and letting everyone in, because they couldn’t get the latch open.
Well let me start off by telling you about this gate, I figured that if I bought the lumber for one it might take a couple of years for Chuck to make me one, because he’s a busy man. So I decided to make one myself. I bought a tall baby gate and some hinges. How hard can that be?
Well, Chuck did show up to help me, but by day two it was about torn down because, well never mind, anyway I bought some Ls and Chuck put them on the corners and put it back together. Then I asked him to make me a Redneck Latch. Now it’s a stick that moves on a nail. I think we’ve got it!
Which animal do you think is clever, a cat or a dog? A cat, of course, have you ever seen cats pulling sleds through snow and ice?
