Winslow and Petersburg seniors will not be meeting until the Coronavirus is out of our area. We received no postcards or notes this week at Sweets Column, Winslow, IN 47598. Winslow Patoka River was up to the rim and, in some areas of the river, it is barely overflowing. We have had several storms come through our area that left us with over an inch of rain. Everybody's yards are soaked already from the last storm and they ha- ven't dried out too much be- fore another round of storms roll in. Our temps have ris- en from the 40s to the 50s and a 70 appeared one day, but the west and north winds blew that temp away. Since Spring has sprung, the daf- fodils are up and some are in bloom. The tulip trees are in buds, but some are beginning to bloom out and the redbud trees are getting their leaves, and soon, more spring-like trees and bush- es will give us their colors to admire. The tulips are grow- ing their leaves. Last Friday, March 13, I turned 72 years old and was greeted by many in Pike Co. and Laura showed me the greeters on Facebook. A f- terwards, we all got togeth- er to go out to eat. Yes, my place to eat did change, and we ate at Denny's in Oak- land City, where Norm and I met up with Robert as we finalized the lot of wood- ed land Norm got me for my birthday. Robert knew Mom, Laura, George and Terri Ann, but met Deby and Ted. We all ordered our meal and I was the only one who didn't get the break- fast of pancakes and eggs. I got the slow- cooked beef plate. Then, after we were done eating, every- one started to sing Happy Birthday and Norm saw where several in the large room were also sing- ing, so he said, "join in." The whole room joined in. It was a thrill to hear everyone sing and my hand went up to say, "thank you all for making this day really great." Norm bought me a choc- olate layer cake with purple cluster flowers along the top and bottom, with "Hap- py Birthday, Barb" written on it. It had candles of 7 and 2. I made my wish and it did come true. One of my gifts I wore that day, but I also wore the shamrock light-up neck- lace on St. Patrick's Day. Mom went back home when we all left Denny's, but she will be back again for an- other visit, and maybe the weather will be all sunshine and we can get outside. Now the dine-in areas of the restaurants are closed because of the Coronavi- rus, but we are grateful we could all get together before virus really began to affect our daily lives. Saturday, March 14 was Pi Day and it was real great because the Winslow Lions served 21 pies and two cakes to quite a few stars. Several pies were sold and more slic- es were sold. We only had four pies that we are now freezing. The Claridge auc- tion was going on and some of the stars who stopped in were sent by these fine peo- ple getting the word out and we are so thankful for their kindness. We have already made a date for next year to have Pi Day again. We went grocery shop- ping for the month on St. Patrick's Day and I wore my light-up shamrock necklace. We got most everything on our list. We go to Save-A-Lot, where the parking lot had a few more customers and the shelves were out of the reg- ular vegetables like corn, green beans, peas, mixed vegetables, so we got some vegetables we don't usually eat. There were no potatoes, hamburger, chicken, sugar, toilet paper and frozen veg- etables. Our other place to shop was Dollar General, where we found some of the items we had on our list. The crowd of people wasn't bad and you could get through the aisles with ease, and they were polite. A few were in a panic, but with help from others, they calmed down. The Hwy. 57 skeletons are dressed in green as they greet you when you pass by. Winslow is more like a ghost town than ever before since the stay-at-home was enforced and no school un- til May 1. No kids are play- ing outside and the few plac- es we have open have very little business. Our Town Hall has a drive-up window, but as we found out, you can pay your bill, but you have to use the drop box on Main St. The drive-up window cannot receive money, bills, checks or the like because of the germs that are coming into the building. The post office is still open so you can mail things or get money orders, etc. The Quick Pick is open for gas and other items you would pick up. I know the Coronavirus is a real head- ache for everyone, but if you keep your cool and don't go in a panic, you might have a better feeling about the overwhelming things that are happening in your town. We all have to endure this vi- rus for months to come, but we can do it with everyone working together. As we all try to get through another week and the lights begin to dim for this week, keep an eye on family and friends just to see if they are fine. Slow down and take care of yourself by enjoying your surroundings. Spring is popping up all over. As always, smile, wave and say "Hi" to everyone you see this week.
