What a rain we received last Thursday, just as I was getting my yard mowed. Now I can make plans to mow it all over again. It’s better than a severe drought as in years past, when our gardens and crops were burnt up with the heat and little or no rain during summer months. At our home we depended on cistern water, no deep wells as we have now. Some systems not healthy and many died from typhoid fever and related illnesses. In my grandfathers records, as a family doctor he attended  to entire families with the fever and brought them through the crisis.

Many friends of Doris Douglas paid tribute to her memorial services Wednesday. She will be missed.

The Ladies Prayer Brunch meets at Mammoth Assembly Church this Saturday at 10 a.m.
