Lilly Lines by Jack Barlick 886-4694

Most of us have seen some flocks of robins gleefully playing in our yards now. Even though we are just seeing temperatures in the 40’s it is so much better than all the 0 degree days we recently put up with. Now for the crocus and tulips!

On Sunday, March 15, I made a rare venture out of town to attend a surprise birthday party being held for Cathy Cherico by her children, grandchildren, and husband, Mike. There was a nice turnout and a good dinner and time enjoyed by all at Taddies.

OLD TIMER
Most blueberries come from Mexico now. Remember picking them at the Lattimore field on the Lilly Mountain or in the fields where the Dutchtown School is now.
