Now that it has quit snowing for a while and we are caught up on snow shoveling, we can get the ice skates out as everything is a sheet of ice. So be careful walking.

Thanks to Dennis Jones for snow-blowing our roof off and to Bob Lloyd for using his big front loader to remove it and push back the snow banks. Now there is room to plow more snow if needed. And thanks also to Mark Sequin for cleaning out the back door entryway.

The spring sale is getting bigger and better — all kinds of Easter clothes and decorating items. We even have two new bikes just waiting for spring to be assembled and ridden. There are also pretty flower decorations and even games. Think spring!

We have a fancy blood pressure machine on loan for a few more weeks. Come and try it out. It even gives you a printout of the results.

Pat Ebbert is the senior of the month for February.

Winner of the gift basket on Friday was a visitor from West Virginia. Congratulations, Sandra Anderson.
