Another week has flown by that old saying that times goes by faster when you retire is so-o-o true.

We have had a small sampling of spring lately, and I have been busy. I have decided it is time to clean up around our neighborhood. Imagine this; we live a mile from one neighbor and our other neighbor is approximately 200 yards away. We do not see much of them. But, for some reason, people seem to think they can just throw out their rubbish. So I am in the process of cleaning up an area of about seven miles.
Last week, while working on County Road 1114 I saw Mr. Wilcox, who stopped to give me a can and visit a while. Next, I passed Randy Koon. He stopped to show me a “good mess” of greens he had just picked from his garden. He got a quick start on his garden and is enjoying the results. I ended picking up four Wal-Mart sacks of cans and some garbage. The wind made it difficult, but my reward was a clean road and $1 found on the road.
This week I decided to start on CR 1117. It is one of the roads that is a main artery to the back country where we live. I ended up with the back of the pickup full of trash. People often go by and just wave. Thanks for the wave, but remember let’s keep “Our Brashear Clean.”
We just happened to see Randy and JoAnne Potter out doing their walk yesterday. They are very faithful to keep up their walking. If you see them around noon, give them a wave. Tom also saw Andy and Glynda Chester walking last week. Seems everyone is getting into the walking mood with the weather this nice.
Received many comments on how to help save money; I want to thank Mindy Nelson on her help. She works for Alliance Bank and offered some of their employees to come speak and give suggestions. In this economy, we all could use some help in making ends meet.
I want to wish Janet, from the Brashear store, a quick recovery. She was in the hospital for a few days and found out she was missing some blood. She received 5 pints and she looked really good yesterday when I stopped by to check on her. We want her to take things slow and follow her doctor’s orders.
Did you happen to hear our president last night? It was good to hear his enthusiasm. He has a large load on his shoulders but he seems sincere in trying to fix things. Let us all remember our nation in our prayers.
Adios for another week, and let’s keep up the faith in that things are going to get better, but only if we help in any way we can. Take care and may God bless you and yours.
