Send postcards and notes of interest to: Sweets Column, Winslow, IN 47598. The envelope has a Happy Birthday sticker with a lily, and the card has a wicker bas- ket of spring flowers of small and large blooms; sitting on a wooden cart with clay pots ready to receive a starter plant, working gloves. This is all sitting on a green grassy yard with a forest of trees in the background. Inside reads: "Wishing you a day full of sun- ny moments, happy birthday. Enjoy your column. God bless you, Phyllis". Thank you Phyllis for the flower basket and I appreci- ate your kindness in your gift and kind words. Winslow Patoka River at Riverside Park is high, but to the rim. The White River has gone down, but is still high. We have had rain for sever- al days, but have not had the storms like last week. We had the March winds in March; and now in April, we are having April showers be- fore we get those May flowers. This past week has been a bit chilly to almost down right cold in the mornings. The daffodils are still in bloom in yards, but also on the sides of roads and sever- al hillsides. There are blooms everywhere- magnolia trees, vibrant yellow forsythia, and fruit trees- pear, cherry and peach. Rosebuds are begin- ning to leaf out and the iris, lil- ies, and daylilies are all grow- ing taller. Birds, like robins, cardinals, hawks, pigeons and many other birds that I don't know the names of, are sin- ing and flying around the ar- ea. Those tiny ground cover flowers of purple, and white with purple are seen in the yard, mostly in sun to shade areas. We took Mom out for a drive to see the rivers, trees and flowers that are chang- ing, and the Easter decora- tions in many yards. There were Easter eggs, Easter bun- nies, baskets, big flowers, and one Easter bunny was seen on a round hay bale. Our travel went through Portersville, Jas- per to Ferdinand- where on a building was Ferdinand the Bull; then into Huntingburg to Jasper, and then to the house after, we got some fish sand- wiches. April 1 was a Friday, and in Celestine a new trial open- ing for Turtle and Annie was going on with a buffet, that we had to at- tend, not just to boost their morale, but to enjoy the fine stars who are servers, host- ess, cook and bartender. Here are a start of these stars: Staci, Chloe, Kari Ann, Jodi, Kylie, Alex, Turtle and Annie. Celestine is a small town with hills and streams flow- ing, lots of big houses in the north and south, and not one was empty. The town itself has two-story houses with gingerbread decor. Many of the houses are red brick, like the elementary school. One of the two-story houses looked like a hotel in its time or a Town Hall, and it has a white iron fence with a gate to match. There is a Dollar Gen- eral, Sander Meat Process- ing, gas station, big Catholic church, small park and play- ground with seating, Staci's Bakery, Kelly's, and Turtle and Annie's new restaurant. Staci's Baker makes some great sweets, like big cinna- mon rolls, turtle cheesecake, cobblers and bread. This town is a big family of friendly stars who have patrons come as far as Winslow's Larry Atkins, who knew my Uncles, Ab and Lawrence "Larry" Meyers. Saturday, Laura and Daniel ate there and met everyone; and Sunday Daniel and Kya- na were there to enjoy some fine food. Saturday, April 2, was the Open Fun Horse Show with several divisions. Some divi- sions had the horse and rider go through obstacles as they were timed, some had barrels, poles to zigzag through, and many more events to compete in. The Winslow Lions sold food and drinks in our new spot, which is closer to hear the announcer and see the events. This day happened to be cold and windy, where the sun only shone for about two minutes, then went back be- hind the clouds. Everyone had heavy jackets or coats on, and by the late afternoon, we could have used gloves. We all had a great time and the horse entries were plen- ty. The next event will be April 30, at noon, at the Rockin' G. Saddle Club. Norm did an oil change on 'Ava,' where all was great until he wanted to remove the old filter. He tried all of his usual tools, but the filter wouldn't come off. So, he got a friend to see if he had some ideas, and he did. Sometimes you just need an unusual tool to do the job, a screwdriver. Thanks for the help. Zoe may be leaving us to go with her owners after they move in to their home. It's go- ing to be quiet here. Zoe and Norm have a routine for play- ing, and also for how to obey some rules. She has learned a lot, but practice makes per- fect. The lights are about to dim for this week. Keep an eye on family and friends. Slow down and see all the wonders in your area. Always smile, wave and say "hi" to everyone you see this week.

"Put it in writing and don't hold back. My hus- band didn't even know I was writing a book. He knew more about the publishing compa- ny that I did. I've started my next book. I'm doing writing and research now, so it'll be a little while. It's a faith-based family about love, faith, and family. That holds a lot of fam- ilies together. It is also about respect. Paul's word, from the Bible, was final. That really stood out to a reader."
