Hello from Baldwin,
How is everyone's week going? I hope everyone is having a great one.
The weather has been on a roller coaster again. We had some cool mornings and storms, heat and humidity.
According to the weatherman, the heat is on this week with a chance of rain and storms also. It makes it difficult on the farmers, who are needing to cut hay and roll it, but they don't want to cut it down if it’s going to rain on it.
The grass is growing fast in the yards, and weeds are growing fast in the gardens. The mowers and weed eaters are buzzing between the rains trying to keep up.
Speaking of gardens, don't forget to drop by and check out the Madison County Farmer's Market in Lowe’s parking lot on Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon.
If you are in the area on Tuesdays, check and see if anyone is there, but most vendors only have enough produce for Saturdays right now.
Some farmers had vine-ripe tomatoes on Saturday. Squash, zucchini, green onions, jams, jellies, breads and local honey are available in the market, also beef and chicken. Drop by and check it out.
Also, the Madison County Farmer’s Market is open on EKU’s campus on Thursdays from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., on Park Drive. Be sure and stop by there, too.
Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Nick and Chris Ramsey, Monday; Debbie Foster and Jacob Ramsey, Tuesday; Shannon Dupuy, Benjamin Keeton and Joan Renfro, Wednesday; Lois Kelley, Thursday and Jeff Hendrix, Saturday. I hope you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
On Wednesday night, the Salem Christian Church Ladies Circle hosted a tea. Ladies in the circle hosted tables, and the hosts for each table decorated and prepared the food for their table.
Vickie Reynolds, Judy Warren, Nelda Smith, Myra Isbell and myself all worked on our table.
Guests at our table were Ellen Harvey, Debbie Jones, Kara Jones, Krista Farthing and Crystal Reynolds. We had a wonderful meal.
Ann Cotton brought an inspiration devotion, and Mary Collins Anderson came from Somerset and blessed us with three beautiful songs.
There were about 45 women and four young ladies at their table. It was a wonderful night of fellowship.
I hope all you fathers out there had a wonderful Father's Day.
Well, I guess that's all for now. Let me know if you hear any news. Just give me a call at 623-4579.

Rain has helped lawns, gardens
Hello from Baldwin.
How is everyone’s week going? I hope everyone is having a great one.
Can you believe such cool weather in mid July?
Refreshing. That’s the word one TV weatherman described the upcoming days when temperatures will be in the 70s with virtually no humidity and lots of sunshine. Can you believe that in the middle of July? We can live with that, can’t we? We may even get close to setting a record for morning lows later this week. This has certainly been the year for strange weather!
