Valentine's Day

Posted Monday, February 13, 2017, at 1:36 PM

Winter's on the east coast and winter's on the west coast and up north of us for sure, but we can't complain when our temperature is in the 40s and 50s in between those times when it is in the 70s and 80s. Our biggest problem these days is keeping the right clothes out. The weirdest winter so far.

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. I have always loved Valentine's day and what's not to love about a day to celebrate love. We just can't celebrate love too much. Whether it is passing out paper valentines to all your classmates in elementary school or getting that special valentine from the boy or girl you have been secretly wanting to notice you in junior high or high school, Valentine's Day is the day to look forward to, to hope for. Chances are, even if you don't get the card from the special secret crush, you could get one from someone hoping you will notice them.

And then for those that have already linked up with that soul mate, Valentine's Day is filled with promise and possibilities. Flowers, a box of candy, sometimes a ring or an important question. Whatever you do on Valentine's Day, do it with someone special or be special to someone else. As I said, a day of promise and possibilities. Love makes the world go 'round.

Don't forget the Annual Chili Cookoff is next week, February 25th, at the Rector Community Center. Dust off your favorite Chili, soup or jambalaya recipe and contact Linda Robinson at 870 595-3035 to enter it in the cookoff. The rest of us will just be bringing our appetites. You can come to the community center at 6:00 p.m. to sample the chili, soup or jambalaya. For a mere $5.00 contribution to the community center you can get a bowl of chili, soup or jambalaya, a drink and desert. Dine in or carry out is available.

Better close for this week. Let me know what is going on with you and I will be glad to share it with my readers. Email: porchswing@newwavecomm.net . Phone number (870) 595-4997.

Take a look at the www.rectorarkansas.com website from time to time. You might want to take a look and let me know if your organization has anything going on that you want to put on the city calendar or if there is anything incorrect. The more we have on the city-wide calendar the less chance we have of encountering a conflict.

Bye for now. Let me hear from you. Stay safe and be kind.
