The Spring Fling Craft Fair held at Plainview School on Saturday was a huge success.  There were lots of different products and craft items to see and purchase.  The Plainview Community Club members served a delicious lunch and the cheerleaders had a large variety of baked goodies for sale.  A very enjoyable day!  Hats off to the PCC for a job well done!!

Jonathan Swift.  The author of the book "Gulliver's Travels", a great adventure story about a man named Lemuel Gulliver.  The story takes place between the years 1699 to 1702.  I've decided to rewrite this famous classic.

Let's call the new version....."Gullible's Travels."  It's about the adventures of a girl and takes place between the years 1955 and 2016.  This girl has gone to school.  She's learned things.  She's older now, and some  life's lessons will never leave her.

Snooze Buttons.  One of my favorite things in life.  I always set the alarm on my phone for 30 minutes before I actually want to get up.  I gave up on alarm clocks long ago.  I'm technologically challenged. When my phone goes off, I set it for 30 minutes later, then go back to sleep for another half hour.

That sounds much longer than going back to sleep for  "another 30 minutes".  I am a master at cheating the clock.

Door knobs.  Something I take for granted in the grand scheme of things when it comes to running my household.  I have fourteen door knobs in my house and each one is 30 years old.  I never gave them a second thought or passing glance until I came home one day and one of them was gone.  That's right, just... gone.

Spring break is over and on to track, baseball, proms and graduations. Just 9 weeks of school left, where did the year go?

Glad to hear that Denis Weber is home after spending several days in the hospital with pneumonia. This past week, Ronnie Weber and children from Washington and Linda Cochran and Connie Weber of Denver came to visit their parents, Denis and Theresa Weber. The girls went home Saturday, but Ronnie and his children will be here until Easter.

All of them took in the Splitter farm sale on Thursday.
