No rain this past week. We need a good soaking rain on the gardens and fields. May was such a wet month. It then turned off so hot. It nearly cooked the plants and young grass.
Tony and friends returned home from their trip. They are tired, but they had a good time. Where they went to hunt had a drought the past year. They only had a little over two inches of rain the past year so we should be thankful for the rain we have got.
Lisa Richards had Friday off. She took me to my doctor appointment. I got a fairly good report. I go back in two months. He can tell if it was the medicine that caused the trouble.
Braxton Richards didn’t get down to see me as his dad, Cody, had to work on his pickup. Maybe next time he will get to come. Everywhere you go, you can see people cutting and bailing hay. They picked a good time since it hasn’t rained much the past couple of weeks.
While Dick Richards was helping Julian Cavalier fix a place for his swimming pool, Becky prepared dinner for them and Pauline, Savanna and Emelie Monday evening.
Freeda Richards and I went over to Georgia’s for a visit Tuesday morning. Jeanette came home Monday afternoon from the hospital, sounds like she had a close call, she was so grateful for Richard Mitchell and others for helping to save her life. She had a complete blockage in the main artery. We praise God for His watch over her.
The Thompsons – Kelly, DeAnn, Kinsey, Kailey and Kyle got home late Tuesday night after spending ten days on vacation. Seven days were on a cruise to the Caribbean Sea. They made stops on small islands. They all enjoyed swimming in the ocean and tubing through a cave. They toured some poverty stricken areas. It was an eye opener to see how poor some people are. They all had a good time and want to go on another one next year.
We went to watch the girls play ball Thursday night and to Kyle’s game on Friday night.
Kenny and Seth Hunt spent the weekend with Norma Cross in the Jenkins building at Goodhope. Teresa Robertson and I took our Sunday school classes to the Incredible Pizza Place in Springfield Sunday after church. They had a real good time eating and playing games and they liked the ride in the church bus. Glen Dale Robertson was our driver. There was sixteen of us.
