How does your garden grow? Well, we have Swiss chard, spinach and maybe some beans before it freezes. Who would have guessed after the dry summer that there might be a chance for more vegetables?


I got an email this past weekend from Mr. Goodman here in Brashear, and he wants to remind everyone that the Marine Corps League, Hopkins County Detachment 1357 will be one of the 140 cooks for the Hopkins County World Championship Stew Contest. He wanted to please pass the word that we will have our Flag Disposal Unit at our stew cook site. The FDU is used to gather worn and unserviceable flags. The flags are then retired correctly, usually by the Boy Scouts or the MCL. He is looking forward to seeing everyone from Brashear at the contest. Semper Fi.

Do not forget the stew contest on Saturday. I feel that the weather will be a great one for stew. Cool and maybe a little damp. 

Has anyone seen any snakes lately? I ran over one in our road (twice) to make sure it was dead on Saturday night. I would like to think that it is the last for the year. A friend from Facebook posted that they killed one on their back porch this weekend. Hurry up and hibernate, snakes. I cannot walk comfortably around the house because I am watching for snakes.

I hope we hear geese this weekend with the cool front coming this week. I love to run out and watch the geese go over. It is a signaling of winter fast approaching.

Thanks to Barbara and George Law for pecans from their trees. They are such thoughtful people.

I went to the Cumby Telephone Co-op lunch on Saturday, Oct. 20, and thoroughly enjoyed the Murray Barbecue lunch. I met some great people and had a good visit with my aunt and uncle, too.
