Wednesday, January i i, 2012 Page 3 The Adams County Record Obituary_ ,l By Helen Glidden My 22 year old kitty, Pocket, died peacefully in his sleep Sunday. His birthday is in March (I think), but since he made it to the new year and died on January 1st I'm call- ing him 22. He was a sweet, sweet kitty. He always had a purr for you when you picked him up. He liked to ride on my shoulders around my neck like a fur collar. I named him Pocket because when he was little I carried him in my pocket, so he became my Pocket Kitty. He was very patient with me. In the morning he would nudge my face with his nose as I sleepily started to wake Obituary up and then he would sit patiently waiting for me to get out of bed. He always asked politely for food. He would jump up to the sink and wait for me to turn on a trickle of water to drink. My grandsons would push him around in a wheel- barrow and he would go along with the game. Once I saw him sit- ting in the pasture flanked by two young foxes. He charged them and they backed off. As I came to his rescue and the foxes ran off he meowed as if to say, "Thanks for show- ing up to help me out". He was abso- lutely not impressed by dogs who tried to lord it over him. He would just "ho hum" and lick his paw in response to their rudeness. If any kitty deserves to go to heaven it will be Pocket. He never had a bad word for other kitties and he was always ready to do his job as a lap warmer.

Stan was born to Harry and Glenna Davison on March 27, 1943 in Boise. He attended the one-room Prairie School through grade school. For a few years he rode Garden Comer a horse to school and was snowed in once for two weeks at the school- house along with his sister and two cousins where his Aunt Helen was the teacher. He went to Mountain Home High School, and received his GED later. Stan married the love of his life, Susan Wilkins on February 14, 1969. He was a home- mechanic, dairy- man, rancher, log- ger and had his own sawmill. He loved old (and new) cars and repairing them. He liked inventing equipment. Stan was preced- ed in death by his parents, wife and sister. He is survived by daughters Lorie (Tim Hohs) and Rebecca (Brian Moore) and granddaugh- ter Holly Johnson, sis- ter Donna Davison, one aunt, numerous cousins and many friends. 'na Gardening By Jon Sorg It seems like some days, I just cannot get woke up. I know as I get older, I go to bed later and get up earlier. When I was a child, I never wanted to hear that it was nap time, but now days, nap time sounds really good some days. But when I read God's word, I wonder if I am sleeping too much. Life sometimes reminds me of an old mountain road. Sometimes smooth, then maybe a few bumpy spots, some twists and turns, a couple of rocks in the middle of the road, and then you by Myrna Weikal mweikal @mtecorru net 355-5829 reach the top and the view that you have been waiting for is right there and it sets your heart ablaze-- God's amaz- ing creation for you and me. The Bible has great love and wisdom for us about the rocks and bumps and twists and turns in our lives because it certainly isn't always smooth going. Luke 22:45-46 says, "At last he stood up again and retumed to the disciples, only to fmd them asleep, exhaust- ed from grief. 'Why are you sleeping?' he asked them. 'Get up and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation.'" I believe that most of the time, we can't see the whole picture of our journey in this life. I also believe that God's Holy Spirit is asking us to stay awake, to look and listen--to stand guard over our lives, and oth- ers lives, by praying. Otherwise temptation may overpower us. It is our right and our responsibility to pray, and from His glorious, unlimited resources, God will give you mighty inner strength through His Holy Spirit. Your nap is over!

The joy of sun on the back and dirt under the fingernails; remem- bering friends as you walk through the gar- den and see the plants they contributed; garden- ing as therapy; pride in the completion of one's own landscaping job; the never-ending awesome- ness of sprouting seeds; the taste of a home-grown tomato and canning with friends; and my favorite response: at the end of the day, after the show- er, going back outside to just look at what you've accomplished. Yeah! Weiser Garden Club is open to new members, so call Weiser Library for more information about their meeting schedule no snow. It feels so much like March outside that I keep thinking there must be some gardening chore I ought to be attacking, then I remember it's only January and I can be lazy for a little longer. Weiser Garden Club invited me to be a speak- er at their January 2 meeting. I'm not much of a public speaker, and I'm sure they know a lot more about gardening than I do, but I sure had fun, learned a bunch, and the cookies were to- die-for, We shared our reasons for loving the garden (think Gardener's Anonymous: Hello, my name is Myma and I'm a gardener. I started with marigolds but soon grad- uated to hardwoods).

Thank you! classes in March and the club plans to attend one or more sessions (go to for a list of classes). Club members have a ton of experience and are always open to learning new things. Plus, what a nice way to get through the winter months! Mentioned at the club meeting was "lasagna gardening." It is a way of turning a patch of lawn or poor soil into a gar- den bed. You lay down a layer of cardboard over the grass (ff you are going over poor soil you can skip the cardboard layer). Over that you put layers of grass clippings, news- papers, leaves, straw or other mulching materi- als until you have a pile a foot or more high. It should be done in the fall so that by spring the layers have decomposed and the grass has died. I had great plans to do this for the place where I intend to plant dappled willows but I never got around to it in October. I suppose I still could, since there is no snow yet, but I worry that the layers would keep the ground beneath frozen solid long past the usual spring thaw. But does that matter? If I keep it watered during the sum- mer I can put the willows |top by We|set elai;sle Candy and Dells Come see our full menu of soup and dell THOXLASON FL NERAL HOME & CREMATORY Familv Owned and Operated Weiser Classic Candy 449 Slate S/ree| Weiser, Idahe $367 www.WeiserClassicCandy.cem dening in January, but nothing says I can't try it. That reminds me of one WGC member's comment that if it's said it can't be done she wants to try it. She is going to grow pea- nuts in tires this. year. You go, gardener girl! Seed catalogs are arriv- ing daily now. They are a great source of informa- tion, whether you order anything from ,them or not. I'm determined to try to grow Brussels sprouts this year, and have been reading everything the catalogs have to say about them (and, John in WGC, I hope you will let me pick your brain about it, too). Besides seeds and plants, this year I want to get a soil thermometer. I think the seasons have shifted, and it will no longer be prudent to rely on past practices to determine when to plant. These idle January days give me ample time to do some research into gardening problems. For instance, I'd like to learn about the life cycle of squash bugs and how to fatally interrupt it. If you have a problem I can research for you, please let me know. You can reach Iyie at mweikal@ or 355-5829. It's good to be back! tion an early spring and it starts snowing! I think this is our first real snow of the season in Cambridge to date. I know it doesn't amount to much right now, but perhaps the weather patterns are begin- ning to change. I can remember when I first moved to Cambridge and I had asked a neighbor about weather patterns in the area. I was told that they had lived here for more than 20 years and that each year had been different. Now that I've been here for a number of years, I can fully agree with that statement. We almost have a full bus for our shopping trip to Wal-Mart on the 17th. If you would like to go, there are still one or two seats left unclaimed. Give me a call at 257-3358 to reserve one for your- self. If this proves to be a popular triP' we will start scheduling a sec- ond trip each month. Our foot clinic will be on Thursday, January 26th this month, and there are appointments available so please give me a call if you are interested in this ser- vice. Our blood pres- sure clinic will be held on Wednesday, January 25th starting at 11 am. Lori Hoxie from Care at Home will be conduct- ing the clinic. On Friday, February 3rd we will be having our first fundraiser of eat Taco Feed." The dinner will be from 5:30 to 7:00 PM and I'm hoping that the Jammers will be able to play. So mark your cal- endars and let's all get together and enjoy the evening together! I'd like to wish a very happy birthday to the following seniors who are all celebrat- ing their special day in January: Don Ader, Joanne Case, Mike Case, Ruth Johnson, Joana Wiggins, Sharon Jones, Bill Sorenson, Kate Noah, Carol Potter, Virginia Seid and Bonnie Gilbertson, If you like to play Pinochle, I like to invite you to our Pinochle tournaments on Monday and Friday nights starting at 6:30 pm. If you would like to learn how to play come to the senior Center on Wednesday's when we play non tournament before and after lunch and on Fridays start- ing around 4:00 p.m. Pinochle is one of those games where the more you play, the more you learn and the bet- ter you get. Give it a try, you might find a pinochle player lurking inside of you! Until next time, I hope you will remain well and happy. - Burial Services - Pr plarming Options . Cremadon - Monuments 221 E.
