Another week, and the heat is back. Hope you are keeping things watered. Be sure to check your foundation — with it this dry you may have developed some cracks. We have and are going to have our foundation checked for shifting and cracks.

Thank you so much for all of your calls, notes, and visits.

I want to say a big thank you again for the help with the FUMC clothes drive. I now have some final numbers to report 293 families came through and purchased some items, 5,800 items were sold, and $1,465.25 amount collected from sales. A big Thank You again.

I had a call from a lady in Lake Dallas about knowing Lurline Buckholt. I have lost her name but she was the granddaughter of Hiram and Elizabeth Spencer. They are buried in the Rockdale Cemetery. Hiram was a veteran of the Confederate army and has a monument there in the Rockdale Cemetery. Their granddaughter is having a headstone added to Elizabeth Spencer's burial site. She says the rules for Rockdale are that the wife is buried on the left of the husband. She said that someone had checked and there were two bodies close to her grandfather. If anyone has any information on the RockdaleCcemetery, please get back with me so I can forward this information. This lady said the Spencer's old home place was some place close to, if not in Brashear.

Been doing some fishing lately — last week we went fishing with Catalpa worms. We didn't catch anything bigger than my fingers but it was fun. The worms stripped two trees and then moved on. My first thought was that we were being invaded by worms, but I found out they were here only for the Catalpa leaves and branches.

Stopped by the Brashear Baptist Church this morning, Karie Kinworthy and LaJuan Snider were busy redoing the Fellowship Hall. They were doing a great job. Hot work but they were smiling. I also stopped by the store to check on Janet. She told me as long as her oxygen supply holds up, she will too. Glad to have her back on the job.

Would like to find some information out about the Divide Church: pastor's name, sermon times, and anything else pertinent to get the word out about this church. Also, Brashear Baptist, if you are studying something specific or have a sermon series going, please let me know so I can invite everyone to come worship with you.

Pat Higginbotham called last night to let me know that her grandson, Tyler Higginbotham, had a great game last week against Whitehouse. He had 14 tackles and he is playing with a broken thumb. That sounds like he was on fire last Friday night. Here's hoping he has a good game this week when the Wildcats play Wichita Falls Ryder. I also learned this week that we have two more players from Brashear, Colton Lee, and one other. Please call me so I can add his name to the list.

Happy birthday to Janet from the store. Also: Jacob Chapin, Margaret Ragan and Mary Smith, 9/1; Aleigh Bessonett and Karie Kinworthy, 9/2; Gary Strickland, 9/5; Mary Stroh, 9/8; Reece Evans, 9/10; Jackson Darrow, 9/11; Vicki Lytle, Kelsey Smith, 9/12; Jayden Arledge and William Baxter, 9/13; Ryan Evans 9/14,

One last request, we need some Prayer Warriors to step up to the plate and pray for our nation and our leaders. We are in crisis in so many ways and prayers will help so much. Also, pray for my mother-in-law, they called the family in but she rallied late this evening and we are so grateful. So get your knee pads on, and PRAY!!

Oh year, Ms. Commissioner, our road ditches and shoulders might need a little cleaning up. Almost had an accident yesterday on the curve, couldn't see if anything was coming.

Remember to call me at 903-612-8806; e-mail me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ; or just stop by on CR 1119. We are not hard to find. Enjoy life you never know what tomorrow may or may not bring. God loves you.
