Here’s a scoop for anyone gathering information about Kim Mulkey:

My fishing trip to Nebraska accomplished several things. I got to catch a bunch of fish, species I’d never caught, I got to sample just how delicious walleye filets are, and I got to meet and fish with Brad Uhl.
Uhl, from Tulsa, is publisher and editor of two outstanding fishing magazines, Bassin’ and Crappie World. In 2012, Uhl bit the bullet and purchased these two magazines and is in the process of making them work into a couple of the nation’s most popular fishing publications. From information I sniffed out on the Internet, here’s how it all came to be.

What’s your fragrance: Foul or Fair?

Asher, Jemery.jpg

In the earliest pages of scripture, we learn how God created the heavens and the earth, crafting with limitless creativity all the beauty and diversity we see on earth. But the crown of God’s creation was when He made man and woman. In Genesis 1:27, we read that “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” We were created in God’s image, reflecting the Trinity in our being — body, mind, soul. Yet there are more ways in which people reflect the attributes of God.

Hosts Margaret an Ed Aston and Kay and Tom Church decided to take the Caney Lake good Sammers to a quiet, peaceful, placid lake, shady campground for the June 25-28 campout.  
Where did they go? To Lincoln Parish Park right outside of Ruston. That evening was made even more enjoyable by going to Portico’s for the two-for-one hamburgers.
Thursday morning was spent with card games and conversations. Everyone always has a new story to tell, or to compare iPads and smartphones. The main feature of the day was the salad luncheon. The group had 15 salads and not one of them alike.

Good time with friends, family in Ruston

Irby, Marna.jpg

I had such a wonderful time in Ruston last weekend that I am still playing it over and over in my head.
It was a short trip and I didn’t expect much except to spend one night with my daughter Becky and her husband Harold and the other with Erma Hudson, and go to Temple church on Sunday — seeing some folks there.
That is what happened, except for a little extra.
