There was a postcard in the Sweets mailbox this week, at Sweets Column, Winslow, Ind. 47598. Postcard # 647 is brown and black with a painting of letters and a flower of red that reads ALOHA (The flower is the O) Hawaii. That is on a big coconut that was Air Mail from Aloha from Kavai! It said "Crack me open! " with a smiley face. Al- so I thought you all might want to know that it costs $12.90 to mail it from Kapaa, Hawaii. We cracked it open and found a note that read: "Alo- ha! We're staying on the is- land of Kavai, and you were the first people we thought of when we saw these 'mailing coconuts.' It's so beautiful out here! It's way different than good ole Pike County. There are wild chickens running around everywhere, and the roosters crow at all hours of the day (HaHa). A couple days ago we got to snorkel with the sea turtles! We could almost touch them they were so close! An experience we will never forget! We also hiked 6.5 miles up and down a mountain side in the mud. Our bodies aren't very happy with us at the sore! We hope all is well back home in Winslow. We love it here in Hawaii, but there is tru- ly No place like Home! We love you guys! Lincoln and Samantha." Lincoln and Samantha, we love the :mailing coconut" very much. Seeing it in the mailbox was a great surprise to both of us, and we had to share it with our stars. Hawaii is a beautiful place to re- lax and enjoy all the amazing attractions the islands have and thank you guys so very much for our # 647 postcard coconut. The Patoka River was up, but since we had no more rain storms, and the hot temps with the humidity came back, the river is down a bit. The first part of last week was hot but no humidity, so the air conditioner was off and the windows were opened. That didn't last too long and the air came back on again with the humidity also. There are some houses in town that still have trees and limbs from the storm, and if you pick up your limbs before you mow, there were quite a few to pick up. Norm raked them up. There were so ma- ny that he had to burn them. Last Thursday, June 7, was the blood drive in Winslow, and there were 17 stars who came out. 15 units of blood were re- ceived. I would like to say to those who gave their time and blood, thanks so much. The pancake breakfast and benefit for Steve Nelson at the Spurgeon-Mon- roe Fire House was a hit as they raised $311.00 on the pancake and sausage plates. The workers were from the fire dept. and auxiliary, and at one point on Saturday, the tones rang out for a fire. Those who helped out were Keith Weit- kamp, Melvin De Cisto, Scott Arnold, Ethan, Jayme, Gage and Amber Kunz, Dee Fiscus, Richard McDowell, Joe Bajjath, Donnie and Maverick Pancake, Norm and I. Steve Nelson was there al- so. We all enjoyed ourselves in this ben- efit for Steve from his fellow fire people in Pike County. On our pizza Sunday with Laura and Kyana, we also enjoyed the company of Mom plus Terri Ann and Ted. It's always a happy day when family gets together for a few hours. Vernon and Dixie went to Tennessee over the weekend to attend an anniver- sary of over 50 years with Skip and Eliza- beth Slunder, who is Vernon's sister. Skip and Liz had rented a cabin, but with all the rain in that area they had flood wa- ters up to the cabin door. They had a great time anyway. Happy 50th Skip and Liz, from all the stars in Winslow. Aunt Jean took Mom out to eat in Oak- land City and took a drive around Pike County back roads. Then Terri Ann took Mom to visit with Janice, her cousin, at the Corner Book Shoppe while she was here. She will go back home with George and Deby on Monday, it was nice to have Mom here in Winslow again for a visit. At our Winslow Lions Club meeting, we were asking how much we owed for our shirts, and our President, Leroy gave us all a big surprise when he said that they were a gift to us Lions for all the enjoy- ment we have in all our events, so he want- ed to share his appreciation as our club's President. We all will be wearing them at our Winslow Riverside Flea Market on June 16 and benefit for Lanora Kelley. Well, it's time to dim the lights on this week's ramblings, but keep an eye on family and friends, slow down and see the beauty in your neck of the woods. Always smile, wave and say Hi to every- one you see this week. Don't forget Fa- ther's Day. raged. I was vengeful. I wanted him to feel the same all-encompassing fear that I did. So I let him feel it the on- ly way I knew how: I sang a Dixie Chicks song. At the top of my lungs and entirely off-key, I belted, "If I fall, you're going down with me. ... You're going down with me, baby, heart and all." I couldn't say whether he was scared, but I feel confi- dent that I at least made him suffer. My mom was pleased to share that her fake skydiv- ing leader had made her feel completely at ease and safe. She didn't wear a hel- met then, either. Birthdays are tricky. With so much hype, there is so much room to be let down. My parents still talk about the time my dad wanted to surprise my mom for her birthday with new fish for her beloved aquarium. He went to the pet store and explained the current in- habitants of the tank, and the store worker suggested fish to add some new color to the tank. My mom loved her little neons. And by the time she got home on her birthday, all the neons had been gobbled up by the new "gift." "Did you leave a bad re- view for the horse lady? " I asked my mom. She was a negative Yelp reviewer be- fore Yelp was a thing. "Let me speak to your manager" might as well be her middle name. "No," she said. "There was a silver lining. Noth- ing like fearing for your life while partaking in your birthday gift to make you feel glad you're still on this planet." "That's one way to look at it," I said. "But wear a helmet from now on."
