If we do get hold of one, we have nowhere to keep it.

We ask everyone to be responsible pet owners. Every day someone is complaining to me about the tree removal Crawford Electric is doing. If you do not want them to cut your tree down, call them and talk to them about it.

This is a co-op, you are an owner and have a board of directors elected by you. Call them up and let them know how you feel about this issue. They are respon- sible for the way their sub-contractor is han- dling the job. Don't forget Friday night is May Day--a long time tradition is our community. The third graders will be winding the maypole and the junior class girls will get all prettied up. I won- der how many of the May Queens are still here in Bourbon.

Darrell Bosse will be honored this month by the St. Louis Boy Scout Council with the Silver Beaver Award.

Paul Chappell brought down a little bucketful the last week in April. We always appreciate the "vegetable gifts" from our friends. Didja Know last Monday we watched as a young man took pictures of our historic water tower, and then again as he came downtown to take pic- tures of the mural on the wall at the drug store? He told us he was Will Clayton from Bloomington, Indiana and that he attends Indiana University. He is taking a "Formal Camera Class" and was gathering pho- tos for his final project. He was fascinated by our old tower and the beautiful mural. Didja Know Ruth Simpson has a new grandson? She and daughter Sandy and grand- daughter, Amber, along with Carl Strosnider went to Roachdale, Indiana to get acquainted with little Jacob Edward, newborn son of Jim Bob and Barbie Simpson.

Her happy parents are Aaron and Heather Kitchen and equally proud paternal grand- parents are Ken and Edna Kitchen. (Sorry, we didn't learn about other grandparents.) Didja Know Leek Avin Nye and his grandson and friend, Robin L. Garza from Rogers, Arkansas were in Bourbon last week visiting relatives? Leck told us his great-grandfather was Forrest Nye and his par- ents were Howard Ott Nye and Mollie Joan Giles.

Didja Know we enjoyed a lovely dinner on Saturday in honor of Jiggs and Lorena Wissman's 65th Anniversary? Many of their relatives anti friends gathered to congratu- late them and enjoy the after- noon at Open House at the Concordia Fellowship Hall with them.
