  • What a hen!

    It was a strange funeral. Just me, my husband Bud and a one-legged chicken.

    I was blubbering like a baby; Bud was punching at the rock-hard ground with a pair of post hole diggers and the chicken, wrapped in a soft towel and sprayed with ammonia to keep the neighbor's dog away, was going in the hole.

    My sweet little Crippie chicken died. She was the daughter of Russell Crow - who also survived various maladies before being mauled by a passing opossum - layer of many large brown eggs and a good companion.

    Twenty years ago, Asbury United Methodist Church could have held most of its services in one of its members' living rooms as the church rarely had more than 10 people at a service.

    Today, the church at 9600 New Columbia Road on the Adair-Taylor county line, is a thriving faith community of more than 220 members. Weekly attendance averages more than 100.
