Well, I am back and had a great time on our trip to the Holy Land. It was amazing to see things that are over 2,000 years old. If you ever have a chance, please go. I will not bore you with details, but if you want to talk, just come on by and I can show you over 1,000 pictures.
Brashear now has a celebrity in their midst. Mrs. Fay Robinson of Brashear placed third in the Ms Hopkins County Senior Classic Pageant. She also won the evening gown part of the competition. I heard she did a great job. Congratulations, Mrs. Robinson, I would love to sit and visit with you. I also heard Carolyn Vaughan was so excited she got to play a baby grand piano. Way to go Carolyn.
The rain was so nice on Sunday night and Monday. We had a 1/10th of an inch short of two inches. The rain was much needed. The wind blew down our corn but it is slowly starting to stand up. Lewis Russell told Tom he had the best-looking corn last Sunday. Now we hope it can stand up and keep growing. Getting some tomatoes and I just put up 15 quarts of green beans. Food for next fall, my granddaughter asked me why I canned. I told her I am not sure. I just have been doing it for 40 years and do not know why I keep doing it. But we do have a supply of canned goods in case of a food shortage.
Brashear had their annual Brashear Homecoming last Saturday. I am sorry I did not make it but I heard the turnout was great. There were about 70 people and they met at the Family Life Center at the Brashear Baptist Church. Everyone enjoyed the new location and of course there was plenty of room for the service and then for the wonderful food everyone brings. The Homecoming will be held there in the future. There has been talk of making it a historical location. Does anyone know what or how to begin this process? Someone has stepped up to say they will follow the steps needed. Just not sure where to start, please let us know.
I was at the courthouse today and talked to Debbie Shirley about elections. Looks like we may use the Baptist Church for elections from now on out, that is if the church approves it.
Loving this cool weather, it almost feels like fall. More like football weather, than baseball.
I would like to ask for prayers for Ron Bramlett's father. He is not doing well. He recently found out he has cancer.
P31 is up and running again for the month of June. There are several new faces and we would love to welcome your beautiful face. Come join the fun and suffer with us. No just kidding would love to have any Brashear women, who would like to get healthier, come join all the fun.
This Saturday, there is a garage sale at the Brashear Baptist Church Family Life Building. Sale begins at 8 a.m. with a concession stand. The money earned from the concession stand will go toward some of the youth going to Puerto Rico on a mission trip. After viewing some of the items already there, you need to come on down and check it out.
Hope the rain holds off for a few more days. Our hay needs cutting.
