SCHINDLER SEZ - APRIL SHOWERS

Details

When you do nothing... nothing happens.

April Showers
April showers bring May flowers,
We've heard the poets say.
But I love it when the sun does shine,
And drive the rain away.

Oh, April showers; I love your flowers,
They're such a pretty sight,
So do us all a humongous favor,
And shower them at night.

It's Not Your Day
April 22nd, was earth day.
If you're still here, be thankful your feet are on the ground.
For all you folks whose feet aren't, I guess it's not your day!

Marry the Dude
Ladies, if you...

NEWS FROM THE HILLS - SPRING TIME

Details Alice Faye Bragg

Springtime weather seemed to explode overnight in our hills, with trees on the mountainside bursting in bloom almost instantly. It seems too early for redbud to bloom, but the delicate pink of its blossoms shine in the warming sunlight. Sarvis (serviceberry) limbs hang over the road bank with its lacy white blossoms.

HOME COUNTRY - APRIL 26

Details

Emily's dilemma was obvious: how do you sell manure? Since she fell in love with Dewey Decker, she could think of nothing less than spending her life with him and embracing the fertilizer business whole hog, so to speak. Emily Stickles has never done anything halfway.
In her job with the county, she has kept a vigilant eye on almost every business around, encouraged where she could, and crushing hard if she needed to stomp on violators.

But Dewey's business, scooping up cow manure and...

JUST HANG ON

Details

When I was a bit younger and a bit braver, a group of friends and I shot the rapids on the Ocoee River in southeast Tennessee. The Ocoee, which I think is the Cherokee word for "terrified rafter" is a world-class whitewater adventure.

Now, I'm no world-class athlete, and that became evident on the river. I so feared being sucked out of the boat that I literally dug my toenails into the rubber raft I was paddling. But by the time we finished, I was on a first name basis with rapids named Broken...

HOW OLD IS GRANDMA?

Details

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events. The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general.

The Grandmother replied, "Well, let me think a minute, I was born before: Television. Penicillin. Polio shots, frozen foods, Xerox, contact lenses, Frisbees, and the pill."

"There were no: credit cards, laser beams, or ball-point pens."

"Man had not invented: pantyhose, air conditioners...
