That's Life - February 8, 2023

Interesting fact - Valentine’s Day has been observed for 1,527 years. Well, my big-hearted friends, Valentine’s Day is coming around one more time on Tuesday, February 14. Who would have thought that a Tuesday would be deemed, “The Most Romantic Day of the Year.” Well, this year it is. Do yourself a big favor and do something extra nice for the one you love. Hey, how about doing something nice, for the one you love, on a regular basis instead of one day a year. Oops, I just about forgot birthdays and Christmas. Hopefully, you do something extra nice then too. Remember it doesn’t have to be big and expensive. Like the saying goes, “It’s the thought that counts.” But I really do suggest that you should make it more than a thought, for your own good.

I don’t know about you but my wife and I like to get outside and walk. There have been a few times this winter when it has been a bit too cold but things are warming up nicely. Along with that comes the thaw, during the day, and then refreeze at night. The result is slippery conditions. Be mindful of your footing, especially this time of year. We have already experienced freezing rain and that can play serious havoc with walking and driving conditions. One thing I have noticed is that some folks have their downspouts aimed at a public sidewalk. Please do everything in your power to keep our sidewalks safe for folks to use. I’ve had a broken arm, it hurts, and I don’t want another one.

I thought I’d wrap things up by plugging the Family Day weekend activities.

Three Hills will celebrate the Family Day weekend with a bang. Family Day Fireworks goes Saturday, February 18 at the Three Hills Campground. The fireworks go on at 7:30 pm. Get your free hot dogs, provided by Digger’s Diner, starting at 6:30 pm.

Travel to Trochu on Sunday, February 19 for the Trochu Ag Society Family Fun Day. It goes from 1-4 pm at the Trochu Ag grounds. Enjoy hot chocolate, hot dogs, wagon rides and a bonfire. It’s all free. It’s all about family and it’s all about fun.

And on Monday, February 20 travel to Linden to enjoy the Linden AG Society Chili Cook-off at 1:00 pm @ the Clubhouse.

That’s Life.
