It’s almost peach time in the markets

Table Talk



Dumb Rock award

Speaking of peach stones, I started something at work called the Dumb Rock award one year. It stuck with the office, I guess, until I retired. I just think people should be rewarded for some of the dumb stuff we do in our lives.

You can guess who got the rock most of the time. One of the times I got the rock was when Sue Bartenfield and I were driving to western Kentucky and we stopped in a place called Leitchfield to get something to eat. I went through what I thought was a Hardee’s and placed my order over the speaker. The lady was really kind and took my order. When I drove up to the window ... wrong place ... it was a local bank. She told me she would really love to fill my order but the cook was off that day.

My grandmother’s Creamy Peach Pie


3/4 cup can evaporated milk (cold)

3/4 cup of sugar

1 #2 1/2 can sliced peaches cut into small pieces.

3 oz cream cheese

1 pkg unflavored gelatin

2 tsp lemon juice

One graham cracker crumb pie shell


Drain peaches, save the juice. Use 1/4 cup of the peach juice and dissolve the gelatin till smooth. Whip the can of milk till foamy, add lemon juice and whip till stiff. Add the gelatin to the whipped milk mixture. Add the peaches that has been cut into small pieces.

In a separate mixing bowl cream the cream cheese and sugar together. Fold in the whipped peach milk mixture. Pour into the graham cracker pie shell and chill till set.

Another Dumb Rock award

Another Dumb Rock award I got one year was about car keys. I was staying at one of my favorite state parks, Ken Lake, and had lost the keys to the state car I was driving.

I tore my room apart looking for them. I looked all over the lodge to no avail. So I got back in my car and called motor pool in Frankfort to tell them my sad story when I realized my car was running and I had gotten into it! Go figure how it got started that day. Must have been one of those senior moments we all have now and then.

    The extension office has received numerous phone calls over the past couple of weeks about large wasps hovering in yards all over the county.
    This insect is called the cicada killer, and despite its aggressive name, it is not something to be scared of.

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg Paper boys learned life, business lessons

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

  • Dick-Ham.jpg Here’s why teachers aren’t paid enough

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.
