Are you thinking of sending flowers to someone special on Valentine’s Day? You may want to check out of the meaning of some of our favorite blossoms before doing so! • Floriography, or the language of flowers, began during the Victorian era, when individuals used flower symbolism to express feelings they were unable to speak aloud, or wanted a discreet form of communication. Various blooms were used to send secret or coded messages of love and other sentiments. Flower dictionaries containing the meanings of different varieties filled the shelves as the long list grew. • Most of us know that sending red roses denotes enduring, passionate romantic love, meant for the love of your life. Pink roses are for a lesser affection, and yellow are to be used to symbolize the joy of a devoted friendship. While white roses represent purity and virtue, a bouquet of mixed red and white roses is used to designate unity with your loved one. Can’t afford a dozen roses? Just a single red rose in full bloom also says, “I love you.” Trying to tell your loved one it was love at first sight? Lavender roses are the symbol for that sentiment. • Blue flowers are used to send a message of calm, beauty, tranquility, and peace. Specifically, blue hyacinths indicate constancy and faithfulness, as do blue violets, which represent faithfulness and say, “I’ll always be true.” If violets are unavailable, blue forget-me-nots also let the recipient know that your love is true. • The towering stems of gladioli are symbolic of a sword, and they even take their name from the Lain word gladius, meaning “sword.” A bouquet of these stunning spikes expresses to the recipient that he or she has “pierced the giver’s heart with passion.” • If your sweetheart is a rare beauty, send her the gift of orchids. Perhaps there is someone to whom you’d like say, “You’re lovely,” but you want to do it secretly, without divulging your identity. The gardenia is an excellent symbol for this purpose. Asking to have your affection returned? Deliver jonquils, a fragrant member of the narcissus family. • Is there an individual who you highly respect? A sunny bunch of daffodils will convey that message. However, if you’re trying to tell your egotistical acquaintance, “You love yourself too well,” have the florist deliver narcissus. • Who wouldn’t want to receive a bouquet of primroses? Their message is, “I can’t live without you.” Similarly, white lilies proclaim, “It’s heavenly to be with you,” and Calla lilies are representative of “magnificent beauty.” • Perhaps you’ve offended your loved one. Sending purple hyacinths says, “I am sorry, please forgive me.” Receiving striped carnations means a refusal to an offer of affection, and declares, “Sorry, I can’t be with you.” • You certainly don’t want to receive a gift of foxglove, symbolic of insincerity, or a Venus flytrap, representing deceit, or rhododendron, meaning danger or caution. Likewise, marigolds are a declaration of jealousy. • Are you thinking of a dear but absent friend? A bouquet of mixed pansies will convey those remembrances. The pansy even takes its name from the French word, pensée, meaning “thought or remembrance.” • Be careful about sending orange blossoms to a newlywed couple – it’s a wish for their fertility! A gift of peonies to any married couple is a hope for continued happiness.

Coupon Bytes - A Big Message Publication Just over a year ago, when Big Message Publishing realized that coupons in Tidbits of Baldwin County were gaining in consumer popularity and marketing effectiveness, the need for a companion coupon book seemed like a necessity. The mission to add a coupon page to each of the three Tidbits sections evolved into developing a high quality coupon book for the Baldwin County area. Coupon Bytes was born - keeping in mind that a free monthly publication, in a coupon book format, would continue to offer savings to the consumer and introduce affordable sales and marketing options to local businesses. In November of 2012 the Coupon Bytes prototype hit the ground. Customers were thrilled with the sample and were quick to jump on board with the new publication. In December of 2012 the first Coupon Bytes book was released to over 1000 distribution locations in Baldwin County. The response was overwhelming and by the most recent run date of February 2013 the book almost doubled in size, growing from 16 to 28 pages. Coupon Bytes offers savings on dining, retail items, golf, seafood and services, just to name a few. Look for your copy of Coupon Bytes at your favorite Tidbits distribution location and be sure to enter our monthly contest for your chance to win $100.00 cash.

A Season to Remember
was more upset with them, since they had failed to bring me the game I wanted. As we briefly stood in mutual discontent, a buck jumping to his feet about ten feet behind me startled me! (Where he was when the dogs passed, earlier, I have no idea!) Frozen in time, I could recall an almost identical Norman Rockwell picture with dogs on one side of a hunter and a deer on the other. Apparently, the dogs hadn’t seen him, because as I turned to watch him disappear without a shot they left just as suddenly the other way!
Needless to say, shortly after the house went up a permanent tree stand appeared at the back of our lot with about thirty yards’ visibility in all directions! Since I taught full-time in another county, I knew my hunting would be limited to weekends, plus Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks, so I set my expectations low.
Another day, I sat in my stand listening to different hunting parties running dogs in all directions when the yelping to the north began to intensify. Soon, one dog’s bark grew closer and simultaneously more animated. As I trained my sight in that direction his barking became so frantic I surmised that he was barking directly at the deer. This proved true. To my amazement there was the dog screaming at the top of his lungs while the buck faced him, antlers lowered in a threatening manner as if to say, “You’ve been chasing me all day, and I am sick of it!”
By Dighton Head I was reared on a farm in upstate New York where “everybody!” hunts deer in season, so when Nance and I purchased our lot in Goochland County, Virginia, I was ecstatic to learn that our nine acres were surrounded by over twelve-hundred acres of prime wildlife habitat. Another piece of trivia not wasted on me is, that in VA, a landowner need not purchase a license to hunt his property.
Amazingly, my meager efforts have been rewarded with almost a deera-year, and one year with two. The fact that I couldn’t participate with a group of like-minded souls has also proved less of a restriction to the enjoyment of “the hunt” than I had anticipated. In Virginia, hunting dogs are permitted, so one can enjoy the thrill of “the hunt” by merely listening to the sounds: baying hounds, gunshots progressively changing directions, and exclamations of nearby hunters. This year proved to be the best of all. The fact that our immediate plans include downsizing to a village home made it most meaningful to me. Prepare yourself. Here comes another one of those much maligned “deer stories”. One morning about midseason, I stood at the southeast corner of our wooded lot when I heard another hunter pull up and drop off his hunting dogs along the south road. As I pondered the situation, I heard a rustling in the woods from that direction. Anticipating a deer running ahead of the hounds, I raised my gun, only to be disappointed as the dogs scooted past. Moments after I watched them fade out of sight a shot rang out from that direction. Moving stealthily towards the scene, and aware that a missed shot could send a fleeing deer my way, I was rewarded almost instantly by the sound of approaching movement. As I stood poised to shoot my heart jumped then sank when those pesky dogs came scampering into view. They ran up to me like they had expected me to do something, but I
Then, on the last day I was determined to stay in my stand all day, if necessary, because I was not just a little upset for going unproductive all season. (I had seen a doe, but refused to shoot, because I hadn’t got a buck, first. Also, my wife would have disowned me, if I had shot her pet!) I spent most of the day there, reading a paperback, critical of the Church by Michael Brown, entitled “How Saved are We?” only taking short lunch/bathroom breaks. The woods were quiet all day with only an occasional shot heard in the distance, until about three o’clock when a hunter dropped his dogs at the south road. I put down the paperback and decided to focus on hunting, especially since the sun was getting lower in the sky and this would be my last opportunity, perhaps forever, to hunt from my homemade, personal tree stand. Shortly, I heard something approaching as I had, early in the season, when the dogs came through.
Apparently rethinking his predicament, the deer left the dog and again began to run - right past my perch. As I took aim, I noticed that one bar of antlers was missing, not a prime candidate for a trophy. Nevertheless, I couldn’t pass up a shot at a large buck running right past my stand. BANG! Down he went, behind some bushes. Hurrying down the ladder as fast as I could, safely with gun in hand, I approached the bushes, hoping to administer the kill shot as I have done so many times before.
Would this be a repeat, or would my final season here end with a fittingly dramatic conclusion? As I watched and listened, I could hear the footprints drawing ever closer. Still unable to see it through the low trees, I strained my eyes for the first glimpse of what it was. I held up the gun; then put it down, when my arms shook with nervous anticipation, just like a young hunter with “buck fever”. I chastised myself, “Calm down, you have taken dozens of deer in your life. Quit acting like a wet-behind-the-ears kid!”
To my surprise and dismay, the dog (with a big “500” tattooed on his side) arrived first and spooked the buck that, it turns out, was apparently more exhausted than hurt. As he jumped to his feet and resumed his escape, I shot again. He dropped about sixty yards ahead, again in ground cover. I was running, now, trying desperately to beat “old 500” to him. Nope! You guessed it. Same scene, repeated. Only, this time he made it into the woods and was gone! So was “old 500”.
When the rugged four-pointer finally appeared I was back in my normal frame of mind; dropped him with a single shot, followed by the finale. Once down from the stand, I observed the buck as I approached: he only had one bar of antlers! I know he had a full set when I shot. Was my aim so bad that I had shot off one side? Turns out, the bar was so weakly attached that it had dropped off as he fell. (In fact, the other side came off, later, as the deer-cutter was pulling the deer off the truck!)
I attempted to follow, hoping to find the buck passed out in a heap, but to no avail. I had to quit for darkness, so I returned the next day, choosing to not leave a wounded deer unclaimed. I never found him or even a sign of blood, so my theory is that I subconsciously wanted to miss the imperfect trophy, which I did. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!
Talk about an exceptional season! This one was such that I felt compelled to write it down. This meant more to me than is immediately apparent. I felt the closeness of my personal God who understood the significance of my last season of hunting from my own piece of Paradise, and provided me with truly with “A Season to Remember!”

The following is a letter from a Parson Jones: Attendance at church last Sunday was mighty poorly. I don’t reckon I oughta grumble cause I had a bunch of sick members and when you add to to all that my shutins, we didn’t have a sight of pew fellows. So I went ahead and preached to what I had. Only thing was-the echo in the near empty church hurt my ears. My madam said I needed to get out and ride awhile and let the fresh air clear my head. It done the trick. Not only did it clear my head, it made me feel right good inside. What I saw made me rejoice. I saw miracle after miracle. Ole Hezekiah who had been deathly sick that morning had roused up and riding down the highway with his ﬁshing poles. No, nothing but a miracle could have roused ole Hez from the jaws of death in such a short time. Rufe told me Sunday that his brother had a back which was in foul shape. They were afraid they might have to operate on him. Well, we remembered him in prayer and lo and behold at 2:00 o’clock, there he stood at the driving range hitting golf balls. If that wasn’t a miracle and a quick recovery, I don’t know what is. All told, about 20 of my sick friends had roused up and was taking nourishment in one form or another. Cont. next week
