I believe this past cool spell might just have been, Locust winter. If we are lucky, we might have seen the last of the frost. I am ready to get a little dirt underneath my fingernails by planting my flower garden.
It seems as if winter doesn't want to relinquish it's hold on the seasons. Last night there were freeze warnings for our neck of the woods. I am planning on planting a butterfly garden in the front yard.
Here we are, smack dab in the middle of Red Bud winter. This is the first of the old timer winters with three, and maybe even four winters to go. These are the cold snaps that hit around spring and are usually gone by the time you get to May.
What a beautiful Saturday morning to be above dirt. This is my favorite time of the year. As long as the weather is this nice, it helps to stir up the blood and get you outside. I do have a very busy schedule today.
The weatherman said it was coming, but we were not sure of how much we would receive. Here at my house, the snow measured nine inches. Thank goodness we went to the grocery store on Thursday and stocked up on the staples we would need to get us through the blizzard
We are standing on the threshold of May, and all I can think about is getting things planted in my vegetable garden. Just the thoughts of having home grown tomatoes at my disposal gets my mouth to watering.
I am really looking forward to this years Christmas parade and am in hopes of getting some great pictures to share with our readers of The Wilson Post.
Saturday morning arrived with the unceasing pitter patter of raindrops hitting my bedroom window. It would be a perfect day for a bed-in, but plans had already been laid for a day of bird watching with my best friend Anthony Gray.
This first paragraph may not be bird related, but I feel like the ones involved are some of my kin folks. I want to congratulate my Cumberland Baseball team and coaches for winning their third national championship at the NAIA World Series out in Lewiston Idaho.
This might just be the last of our spring time winters. I have never seen the like of the blooming of the Blackberry plants. It seems that everywhere Anthony Gray and myself go on some of our bird travels, that we see plenty blooms on the roadside.
It seems like only yesterday that we were in the deep freeze with all of the frigid weather and now, I am afraid that we have jumped over spring and landed in the middle of summer. I made a promise to myself that when it warmed up, I would not rant and rave about hot weather, nuf said.

Funeral services will be held 2 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 29 at the Partlow Funeral Chapel for Mr. Alvah "Al" William Ryerson, 86, of Lebanon -- a veteran of the U.S. Navy.
I got up pretty early Friday morning to do a little birding with two of my favorite friends. Karen Franklin along with her daughter Anna, picked me up just after seven in the morning where we headed out to the Cedars of Lebanon State Park.
PORTLAND -- Lebanon improved to 2-6 on the season with 23-6 win over Portland in a penalty-marred game Friday night at Memorial Field. The victory broke a five-game Blue Devil losing streak headed into an off week.
Wilson County Director of Schools Dr. Tim Setterlund said the recent dismissals of two long-term educators were not decisions I made just on a whim.
While he declined to discuss the specifics behind the dismissal last Thursday of Jill Micco, supervisor of special education, and on Friday of Bill Moss, supervisor of Career Technical Education (CTE), Setterlund said, Part of it is, I have to have a central office staff that shares the same vision that I have for the district and to support that.
Setterlund, who has been on the job since July 1, said it should not come as a surprise to anyone that he may make some changes in the Central Office staff.
