I hope your week has been a good one. The Olympics came to an end Sunday night with an outstanding performance. I’ve enjoyed a great deal of them, especially during our icy weather.
Of course, being tax season does not help the majority of us. I am just now completing my 2012 taxes.
Thank goodness my daughter-in-law Stephanie Scott, who is a CPA, helped me get the proper items necessary so that I can file. Of course, there was an extension fee that had to be met. Charlie always did this order of business for us and I was left out in the cold, following his passing. I don’t know where I would be without my neighbor Mary Alice McDaniels, as she had done Charlie’s taxes most of his life and then ours for the past 22 years.
Thanks to Debbie (Bill’s daughter) and husband Bud Neal, for a delicious meal Sunday. It was Bud’s birthday and the chicken and dumplings rated right beside Cracker Barrel’s. Bud got his cherished sweets, the little "Peeps," as well as a tasty, homemade strawberry cake. Bill’s friend, Mr. Trace Barnett, joined him at church and also the birthday party. It made for a very pleasant day.
All of my children and grandchildren were out of town over the weekend. It was so good to see them when they returned, especially the face of my precious grandson, Matt Scott, who lives in Dyersburg and plays baseball for the college. I think I’ll probably see more of him now as baseball season begins. I feel privileged to have had dinner with him Sunday evening.
The Humes High School’s reunion committee met last Saturday. We are beginning to receive confirmations for the 50th class reunion, the class of 1964.
As I am in charge of the decorations, my work still lies ahead, but there have been several great ideas suggested for the theme.

Three Star Fire Department still needs volunteers. Contact Chief Dave Hessling at 497-2720 for more information. Please consider this position for the community.
In closing, last Saturday was a very busy day for me, as I attended my family’s Indian heritage meeting at St. Ann’s in Bartlett.
The works are in the making for the many benefits Indian tribes in Tennessee have been denied.
I hope the week ahead brings much joy and happiness!
