Carol Perkins: When you frankly just want to slap somebody

She had so much malaise and maladies, she didn't feel like herself anymore, she told her Bowling Green doctor, telling him, 'Frankly, I just want to slap somebody.' But a trip to her herbalist with sidekick Carol, and a 'feet in the tub' detox and the world became more right again.
The next previous column: Carol Perkins: Mama Don't Cook No More Posted April 28, 2014.

By Carol Perkins

Every six months I have a routine check up for my high cholesterol. I fully understand the need to do this, but I am a total wreck when the nurse approaches me with a needle and starts slapping my arm to bring the veins to the top so she can poke them. I have been known to swoon and need a quick smell of something under my nose to keep me from hitting the floor. Knowing my weakness, I warn the nurse she may have to use a child's needle. Only once has a nurse resorted to drawing blood from my toe. That won't happen again.

Plus, as always, I got a quick response about the dog we found.

Witnessing a callous cowbird act

Bizarro Mother's Day event in Bird World
Click on headline for photo(s), links

By Ed Waggener

We didn't crab our cameras while the egg-napping was underway, we we all saw it and remembered recent postings about brood parasitic birds.

While enjoying a pleasant day and iced tea on the carporch at Tillie's House with Bob Chelf, Pen and Tom, we saw a gray bird fly up to one of at least four Wild Pet nests Teresa and Tom have let become a part of the family. It looked like a parental visit, but we notice that the bird flew out with a beautiful light blue egg, and left it in the grass.

Wonders about date of historic J. L. Lewis visit to Lebanon, KY

Anders Rosengren writes:
Hi. I have been a collector of Jerry Lee Lewis for about 12 years and that show must be pretty rare. It isn't meant in any of the JLL giglist on the net. I only found this one (05.09.82 - Lebanon, VA - Private Function) So i wonder if the date were wrong? Is there any pics from the show? --Anders Rosengren

Geniece Marcum - My Mother's Garden

A family favorite Mother's Day Story, last reposted on 2010-03-22 17:29:18
Click on headline for story with photo

By Geniece Leftwich Marcum

My mother's garden lay on the southerly side of our old house between the edge of the yard and a dense woodland which belonged to an unsociable uncle.

I found little of interest in this garden in spring with its neat orderly rows Poppa and his trusty mule had laid off.

Nor in early summer when the labor of Mama and my older siblings resulted in flourishing stick beans, hearty red tomatoes, sweet corn, and green onions.

Ah, but when fall came, when the last of the vegetables were about all gathered from this plot of ground, this was my favorite time.

Morning glory vines that had escaped the hoe ran riot among the rows and blossoms in every color would come laughing to greet me and turn that corner of my world into a rainbow.

Today is Mother's Day. I hope all the Moms have a good day today. There is one Mother who is amazing and that is Mother Nature. When we used to raise horses it was always interesting to watch the mares. They knew when the time to foal had come and would try to find somewhere quiet to give birth. I've seen mares lay down on one side only to get up and then lay on the other side. It's as if they're putting the foal in a better position.
