The sun is going to shine for us

PAINT LICK — It's another cloudy Tuesday here in Paint Lick, but folks, the sun is going to shine for us all this week, so we can get into our gardens and plow up our fields and just be happy that maybe the rain will stay away, at least for a little while. We have a wonderful breeze out that will soon dry the ground.

Everyone tells me they had a great Mother's Day. I know I did with all the rose bushes that I intend to plant, I should stay quite busy and the beautiful cards..... I want to cry whenever I read them.  I spent the whole day at my sister Emma's home where she put up with around fifty of her offspring and siblings. It was such a good day, everyone brought food and caring hugs, lots of well wishes and even helped with all the mess afterward.

Last Wednesday was an extraordinary relaxing day for me and Deborah Messenger as we traveled to Casey County just on the outside of Liberty, we stopped at The Bread of Life Cafe. It was packed even before noon with excellent foods and the servers were so nice. Deborah and I then drove to the Amish General Store and their nursery was well stocked. As you might guess, I spent more than intended and bought a good looking grapevine starter home to Doug. He is starting his own orchard in our front yard and I finally found some Missouri Wonder green beans seed to put in the garden. But then, I'll quote my nephew, Mark "don't mow your lawn, eat it." It's a greenery thing! What a glorious day! The Community Farmer's Market is still open on Fridays from 4-6 p.m. and everyone is welcome to join Deborah Messenger and Glenda McQuerry and Willow in your own vegetable display, no charge.

Call her at 925-9936, if you would like more information.

Congratulations to Paint Lick's Elizabeth Moore on becoming "Certified FeedMaster Specialist" for the Southern States Cooperation where she is an employee. We are proud to know she can answer any questions you may have on what and how to feed and treat your stock.

The Paint Lick Family Clinic will be closed the last week of May from 27-31 for Memorial Day and some time away.

Have a wonderful week ahead and May God Bless

  • Bee on the lookout as beekeepers convene

    Summer vacation season is in full swing, and I had the pleasure of spending the last week and a half filling in at the Farm Store while the store manager, Bethany Pratt, got a welcome respite soaking up the beauty of Ireland.

  • Amanda-Sears-c.jpg Cicada-killer wasps are here

    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.

  • Brandon-Sears-c.jpg Converting from year-round calving to a controlled breeding season

    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.
