Folks, is it just me, or is there a touch of fall in the air? After the brief showers yesterday and then this morning waking up with the heavy dew and a hazy morning, it made me think of autumn. Of course, we’ll have some more hot weather, but relief is in sight, maybe.
I spoke with Vera Harrington this week and she allowed that Mary and the girls were down from Waxahachie enjoying one more visit before school started.
I visited with Marilee Fisher a few minutes, by phone, this week, and she allowed that they still have some fresh peas. Give them a call for your orders. It seems that the recent rains have been a great blessing for the produce on their farm.
Bryant Fisher will be returning today from Knoxville, Tenn., where he has been attending a DFA Southeast Council Meeting. Hopefully he will be bringing back some good news for local dairy farmers about the price of milk.
Josh Hughes from Cleburne has been visiting with the Fishers this week. And, both J.R. and Kendra have started working on their master’s degrees at Texas A&M University-Commerce.
Marilee has been meeting Betty Allain for water aerobics every afternoon, for the last week. Sounds like they have had a great time.
Have you heard about “CanKoon 2009?” Well, the Randy Koon family, the David Lawrence family and the Danny Moss family joined together in Cancun, Mexico, last week. Sounds like everyone had a great time and enjoyed themselves. Give them a call for the details.
Also this week, word has filtered back to Hopkins County that “it’s going to be a little boy.” Jandi and Michael Lawrence called us all and exclaimed that Landri is going to have a little brother. He should be here by Christmas.
Joyce McDonald has been under the weather this week with a stomach virus, but was feeling somewhat better on Wednesday morning. Of course, the news of the new great-grandbaby got her spirits up.
Many in our community were in attendance at Sunday’s First Baptist Church 150th anniversary celebration. Reports were of a wonderful time and a great time of fellowship and visiting with old friends. Congratulations on 150 years, First Baptist.
Until next week, continue to enjoy the nice weather and look forward to the autumn season that will be here shortly. Remember our troops who defend our freedoms and ask for them an extra measure of safety and a safe return home. Pray for love in our hearts, harmony in our community, and peace in our land. God bless Reilly Springs, Hopkins County, and America.
