The Coutures farmed in the RM of Reciprocity until they retired to Redvers in 2004. Funeral mass will be held in Redvers on March 12 with burial at Cantal Cemetery. Condolences are extended to all other family members.
I do believe that March came in like a lamb, and that should mean an early spring. I’m so ready for the season change. Boy this last weekend sure played havoc with the snow – there’s more bare spots than snow spots now, and I’m not sorry to see the snow disappearing. However I do know that we are in desperate need of moisture, what run-off we are going to get isn’t going to be too much, and there are some farmers who are looking for water for their cattle, not a pleasant chore.
Next Wednesday it is St. Patrick’s Day – make sure you’re wearing green that day and have a great day. Happy St. Patty’s Day to everyone.
