It's been a good day readers, although hot and sticky most all afternoon, as I write. We did get a wonderful "drive by breeze" soon after I started looking for something to do in the early morning hours. When the hurry up and go vehicles come down our Old Railroad Grade making Speedy Gonzales look bad, they bring a good wind as they drive by and I look up and ask God to take care and bless them for that wonderful breeze. Mind you, I don't care for the speeders, but the longer I stayed outside, there might have been a dozen cars and trucks and even two tractors, making for a busy Sunday afternoon. Just a bit before the sun went down, one such small truck went by so fast I hollered out that "maybe you ought to get an airplane." I seldom see a truck that fast and it didn't even leave a breeze.
I got a call from a dear friend and we talked about everything today. It sure was great to hear from you, Ted. I pray for you and wish that your big 86 year will be better than you can imagine. Your birth date of August 8 is the same as my son Joe Rollins and my nephew, Robert Isaacs. Ted, we sure do miss you and Barbara at Paint Lick Christian Church. Also, to Ms. Ellen Hagan, a special lady, I'm praying for you, a great birthday to you on Aug. 7. I also mention once again the birthday of my grandson Jacob Ryan Rollins (today). You can spot Jacob at Berea Walmart as Asst. Manager. Have a great day.
The gardens here in Lowell are looking good although the heat makes for some hard days. My neighbors Bill and Terri lost all their corn to the coons and I read where Ike Adams is having a time with the pesky critters that seem to devour his garden long before they get any others. Raccoons are everywhere this summer and I'm sure they will try and get to our garden -- just not much we can do when it comes to feeding the wild things. I wonder sometimes if all the hard work is worth the trouble of putting out a bunch of vegetables but then I know that I am blessed to have as much as we do. I stay busy throughout my day on the outside especially knowing that when night falls, I can fall asleep better. Gardening for me keeps me active and I think it relieves stress. So maybe I'm doing something right.
Thank you Lori Rollins for adopting the small kitten that came through my granddaughter Amanda. I know it will have a good home.
Not much else is happening in the area this week but I will say may God bless.
