Rain has helped lawns, gardens

RICHMOND — Hello from Baldwin.

How is everyone’s week going? I hope everyone is having a great one.

How about this weather, much cooler, low humidity and we got a wonderful rain. What else could we have asked for?

I think by Monday morning my yard was already greener after soaking up the rain. And the rain has certainly helped the gardens.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to: my sister-in-law, Debbie Jones, and Mary Lou Horn, Sunday; Heather Riddell Martin, Tuesday; Kenny Sandusky, Shelby Winter, David Miller and Paula Jones, (me), Wednesday; Brenda Bogie, Thursday; Ian Hayden, Friday; and Minnie Kelley, Saturday. I hope you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to: Danny and Joan Renfro and Colby Bogie and Amy Campbell, Sunday; I hope both of these couples have very happy anniversaries and many more happy ones to come.
