I have some very good news I would like to share with everyone. Sunday evening, February 18, Jerry Weber of Sheridan Lake was undergoing a double lung transplant. Jerry has been on a waiting list for new lungs for a long time. Our prayers are with Jerry and his family for a successful surgery and recovery. Here is a new address for him. Jerome (not Jerry) Weber - CTICU Room 227 - %University of Colorado Hospital - Anschultz Inpatient Pavillion - 12505 E. 26th Ave. - Aurora, CO 80045

During the past week many people about town shared loving thoughts, gifts, and time with others during Valentine's week. Stores, offices, classrooms, and homes had decorations in shades of red. Jennifer Schofield at the J J's Ranch House used red table clothes that made the dining rooms more festive for those who dined out February 14. The beef and shrimp, side dishes, and desserts were really fine!
It all began when Windy Wilson told the assembled philosophers at the Mule Barn truck stop that he was going to start writing songs so he could win what he called the Nobelly Prize for Lit-a-chur. He said Bob Dylan won it and got money and all kinds of stuff and his name was in the paper, and Windy figured he could do the same thing, only in country music.
Steve had been listening to this for some minutes and finally said, "Windy, tell you what. You write a song, and I'll sing it."
"You can sing?" Windy said.
I would like to congratulate the Plainview Knowledge Bowl team on winning a trip to the State competition in March. These students and their coach, Miss Fees, work hard all season to do their best. Good Luck at State!!
"This is my commandment that you love one another as I have loved you." John 15:12. I wear a ring with that inscription. The next verse in 13 tells us, "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down his life for his friends." This reminds me of what my uncle, Hank Pollreis, wrote to my mother, Ida, "I am going to fight for you and your children." He did in World War II when he died as a paratrooper in New Guinea.
Dewey reached up to straighten his tie and stuck a finger up a nostril by mistake. Here he was, on the most momentous evening of his life and he couldn't do one little thing right. Tie a tie. Every 9-year-old boy getting ready for church could do it, but not Dewey.
Galatians 6:9-10 "So let us not become tired of doing good, if we do not give up, the time will come when we will reap the harvest. So then, as often as we can we should do good to everyone."
When Steve and Dud got up to go get a paper, it left just Doc and Bert sitting at the philosophy counter of the Mule Barn truck stop. Bert turned his head and smirked a little, being careful not to let Doc see him. Doc also didn't see Dud outside, punching in a number on his cell phone while Steve stood by as a cheerleader.
"Doc," said Loretta, filling the coffee cups, "phone call for you, Hon."
"Here? Okay..." Doc walked over to the cash register and picked up the phone.
"This here Doc?" said the caller. "The Doc what lost his squirrel?"
Jerry Weber is in the hospital in Denver. His address is: St. Joseph's Hospital - 1375 E. 19th Ave. - Room 5313 - Denver, CO 80218. I'm sure he would enjoy cards from everyone. Hope you're better soon and back home, Jerry.
My Mom fell last Wednesday and was in the hospital overnight for observation. She is back at the Legacy and feeling better. She sure has lots of shades of purple on the left side of her face and eye. I told her she could start a new fad for eye shadow. She didn't think so!!
