Some medical ‘facts’ are not right!

Historical Photo:
 The famous Rail Road Watch & Railroad station 1880's

But for today!
Sherry read to me, "It is a medical fact that eating nuts of any variety will prevent a fib!" (A-Fib)

I said that is not so. I had a friend who continually ate peanuts and was forever telling fibs!

Hope you all are beginning to see spring. North Carolina is beautiful this time of the year.
We are making some progress, however Fishing & other things is not great, but we are working on it.

It is good that you are working on things, hoping the fishing gets better! But at least you didn't lose your sense of humor, cute joke you told back about friends and fibs :)

We eat a lot of nuts around here but then we Are a lot nuts... Hope the
' fishing ' improves. All your warm weather and sunshine may help. Always interesting facts about NC. and here I always thought the Venus Fly-Trap plant was native to the tropics. Who knew, til now. Continued prayers, love n' hugs from up north where we continue to help our SIL empty her storage buildings. It'll take a while

We have lots of nuts here and lots of fibs - lol - just kidding.

I have friends in Cary NC - dear friends of about 40 years - do you live near that?

I hope all is okay.

We just had a new Krispy Kreme open here. I didn't know that the Krispy Kreme Doughnut was founded in Winston-Salem.

That joke about the nuts and fibs did make me smile this morning. Any little progress made is a good thing. Fishing and other things will improve too, sometimes it just takes time. I always try to remember that with God all things are possible. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Yes, Spring is here and oddly enough we are to see upper 70's today and maybe 80 tomorrow. That won't last but all off 2 days then we'll be back to our normal 60's. But the warmth should finally cause the buds to pop and the trees will once again have leaves. Looking at pictures from this time last year. The trees were already green. We are behind but will soon catch up.

Hi Jack and Sherry :) I can't wait to start fishing! We still have a good few weeks before the lakes are thawed out though. We still have snow, but it's melting fast. We're just working on prepping the garden and yard so we'll be all ready to plant when the weather is warmer!

My friend Josephine Andrews, wife of former Yankee pitcher Ivy Paul Andrews had a Christmas card sent to her by Babe Ruth from Japan after WWII when he was there promoting baseball.
