C4 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, April 22, 2010 Seniors Cead mile failte. April, from the Greek goddess of love, Aphro, dite. Have you planted your garden? Set your hen? Or have you ever set a hen? Well, that is the reason for roosters, if you raise chickens. When we lived at the Circle J, we always raised chickdns. We always bought straight runs, usu- ally a hundred chicks. This gave us plentY to replenish our laying flock, and have plenty to have all the fryers needed for the table. Can't beat home fried chicken, anyway all we needed or wanted. My mother and also my mother-in-law, Pearl and Lillie, used to set several hens in the early spring. They always began to get . broody, the children never like to gather the eggs this time of year, and they usu- ally really enjoyed doing this chore. The broody hens would get real protec- tive of their nests and would retaliate by pecking anyone who tried to gather the eggs. Mother always had a brood- ing pen, this was separate from where the bulk of the residents (hens and roost- ers) were housed in the hen house. It was comprised of a scratch pen and mounted laying nests and roosts. The rest of the hen house also had covered nests and a ail for easy access. There were also roosts that were hinged to the wall of the hen house where they could be raised on one end so they were easily cleaned underneath. After you had selected the hens that were to be :allowed to hatch the little chickens, you would mark each egg with pencil or crayon, in case there was a fresh egg layed in the nest by mistake, so you could tell the difference, Then the hens were allowed to set for 21 days, when the chicks would "pip" the eggs (peck) until there was an exit big enough for the chick to come out or "hatch". Then there was lots of cheep- ing. Then they would be removed from under the hen and placed in usually a cardboard box with feed, water, and a gallon bucket, full of warm water, and wrapped with a soft cloth until there was enough hatchlings or all the chicks were hatched. Then they were removed from the box and put with the mother hen and bak irito, probably, the brooder house, where they were housed until they were let out each day to roam into the garden and yard. If chicks were purchased in a group from the hatch- ery, usually in Guthrie, or McConkeys in Stillwater, they were housed in the brooder house, where instead of putting them with a hen, a purchased brooder was used. This had a large metal hover, and was warmed by kero- sene. There was a jug filled with kerosene and put into a container, upside down and was slowly and regu- larly fed into the burner to keep the chicks nice and warm, just like the hen. Of course, there was cleaning and feeding, also watering, besides how many hours did you sit and enjoy watching the little chicks play, run and also eat? It was a very enjoyable part of our days on the farm, and a part of farm life. This was besides, milking the cows twice daily, separating the milk, feeding the bucket calves, and slopping the hogs, and washing the seperator, casing the eggs, this was preparation for the weekly trip to town to sell the eggs and cream and going to the picture show every Saturday evening, also meeting your school' friends, along with maybe a favorite special one, that you saved a seat for at the show (theatre). It was a great life, a very special life. That's the way we raised our family. We were never too busy to also serve God. We attended church every Sunday, prayer meeting and every revival meeting we were there. And thankful every day for God's goodness. Our Monday evening guests are so wonderful,. besides bringing us the most wonderful music and song, they also bring snacks and we are so appreciative.

CHURCH continued from page 02 Shelton, Cooperative Program (CP) Specialist with the Bap- tist General Convention of Oklahoma. Brother Bob shared from Romans 15:20-21 that Paul knew where the lost people were and went there to share the good news of Jesus Christ. There are over 5.9 billion people in the world today who do not know that Jesus Christ died for our sins and is ready to give eternal life to those who receive His gift of salvation That's about 1 in every 7 people who need Jesus. The CP is the largest mission sending organization in the world because many churches cooperate together. As members give their tithes and offerings,, the church then gives a percentage of that to the CP and it is around the world within 12 days -with no admin costs subtracted! Falls Creek is just one of the recipient ministries partially supported by the CP. First we pray, then give, and then go into the world to share the gospel; cooperating together as He commanded. During the evening service Brother Robin shared about and read our Church Covenant. Following this covenant relationship reminder, we celebrated the Lord's Supper, remembering what Jesus did for us on the Cross. Come visit us at 2415 E 104, just a mile north of Perkins.

He has made some bad decisions and had some problems. As a result, he has kept out of public view lately. After apologizing to just about everyone for his behavior, he has decided to start play- ing g01f again. A story is going around that some of his close friends planned a small private party for him to celebrate his return to public life. They are supposed to have invited Stevie Wonder, one of Tiger's favorite entertainers, to come sing a bit for him. Sometime during the party while the two were chatting, the subject of Tiger's infi- delity was never discussed. Stevie told about his child- hood and how his singing career began. They talked about golf, and Tiger was amazed when Stevie told him that he played golf also. Since Stevie is blind, Tiger wanted to hear how he could do that. Stevie said his caddy would stand in the middle of the fair- way and shout loudly at him. Stevie would listen to that voice and hit the ball in that direction. When they approached the green, his caddy would decide where on the green he should try to land. He would stand there, call from that spot, and Stevie would play the ball toward that voice. When he reached the green his caddy would line up the put, lie down with his head on the ground by the hole, and call to him. Stevie would then put with a mental picture of the ball going into his caddy's mouth. Woods asked about his score, and when Stevie told him proudly that he was a scratch golfer, Tiger was incredulous. Woods doesn't want to get out in public with people swarm- ing all over him, but he was so intrigued by the thought of a blind man playing his game, and doing it so well, that he offered to play a round or so with him sometime. Stevie took him up on it, but said that since people don't take him seri- ously, he only played for money, and never for less than $1,000 a hole. Tiger decided he would agred to that but refuse the money when he won. He offered to play one hole, and asked Stevie to set the date. The impetuous singer smiled and said, "Whenever you like. Just pick a night!" Sometimes we just can't see all of the consequences o four actions. We might all do well to think things through ahead of time, eh? Saturday, April 24, UMW will be meeting at the Church at 9:00 am. All the ladies of the church are welcome to come, enjoy a time of Fellowship--"Let's Get Together". Saturday is also a clean up day, for both inside and outside. Each Sunday school teacher can be responsible for their rooms. Spring has arrived, let's get the Church all spick and span! Sunday April 25 is the monthly potluck. This month we are going "green", the only thing that will be provided will be paper napkins--Bring Your Own Table Service! If you happen to forget, there are non-disposable items at the church you can use. After lunch the Children's Group and Youth will head to Stillwater for an afternoon at Mini Golf, it is sure to be a lot of fun, plan on coming. Remember to bring your change each week! Jenny has provided small container to bring back to church each week with you change in it. Ending with Pentecost, the change collected will help to purchase sturdy wheelchairs that can handle the rugged streets and paths in Rio Bravo. This is a conference wide mission. Speaking of missions, one great one in the area is the Wesley Foundation, they are looking for help with some small landscaping projects on front patio facing OSU. If you have a green thumb, this would be a great project to help with.
