Head to crab feed Saturday in Rosburg
I picked my first bouquet of daffodils yesterday afternoon, so that must be a good sign of things to come, right? I see lots of baby sheep and calves being nurtured by their mothers in the fields along the highway and county roads. Spring must be almost here, new beginnings, new life and hopefully good things ahead for all of us.

Writer sends Valentine’s Day wishes
Happy Valentine’s Day to all the Eagle readers and staff. I feel very blessed this day for the love of family and friends. These past few months have not been the most wonderful of my life but things are certainly looking up. Thank you, everyone, for all your good thoughts, deeds, prayers and encouragement after my husband’s stroke.

Signs of spring are appearing now
Sitting in the hot tub in the evenings this past week, I have been hearing the frogs singing. A few eagles are perched in the trees overlooking the Grays River, looking for fish. Robins are congregating on the lawn in the mornings, daffodil plants are poking up through the soil and the skunk cabbage is also showing signs of life.

Bazaars, home tours on holiday schedule
Well, folks, we are now sitting on waterfront property once again. We could conceivably row straight across the field to the Covered Bridge but the current is such that it probably wouldn’t be such a good idea.
