I am wondering if I heard right….”The older we get, the faster time flies.” How can that be and why can’t I get “caught up”? I get up each morning, thankful that I got out of bed and that I am able to plan my day, but I know all of the jobs and plans are not going to get done. All I know to do is jump in and get as much done as I can. I am afraid there is still going to be a lot of undone things around my house when I draw my last breath!
This week has some sad issues as my cat “Shadow” didn’t get good news at the Vet’s office. He has a nodule on his neck and a very bad infection. He is 12+ years old and has always been a “mean” cat according to my daughter Paula. He was her cat for a while, until he whipped up on her other cat and she sent him to my house. Also he has whipped all of the cats in the neighborhood, but he is still part of the family as he greets us when we get home each day and talks to us as we sit on the back porch. We are planning on enjoying him as long as time allows.
Now for some good news as my garden is growing and looking good. I have green beans, sugar snap peas, lettuce, green onions and two tomato plants that are looking good. I can’t wait for fresh vegetables out of the garden.
Ashland Christian Church News
No news to report, as we are water logged due to high water. Hopefully, the water will recede and we will have church on Sunday. I miss my church family and enjoy seeing them each week. Hopefully, there will be a lot of news next week. Stay tuned!!

Enfield lost another lifelong member of the community this week. Our sympathy goes to the Jack South family. Jack passed away on May 4, 2017 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville. Jack is survived by his son, David, and daughters Kaye Schroeder and Karen Whitley. Three grandchildren and one great grandchild survive. Also a brother Bill South, a sister Frances York and sister-in-law Donna Delong. Funeral services were held on Monday May 8, 2017 at Stendeback Funeral Home in Enfield with burial in Enfield Cemetery. Graveside Military rites were conducted by the Carmi American Legion and V.F.W.
Springtime and warm weather are here and Jon Hart has broke out his golf cart. Jon spends many hours riding around Enfield and talking with his friends. Jon now resides in the Enfield Health Care, but is still able to ride his golf cart around town on pretty days.
