I want to ask forgiveness for last week. I was in such a hurry to get away for a few days that I forgot to finish the process of sending in my article. So I have combined two weeks. (Tom and Iwent to Broken Bow, Okla., for three days. It was raining but was a nice trip.)
Please remember that 2-1-1 (CANHelp) is continuing their 10th anniversary celebration in Hopkins County with 211 Texas Day on Thursday, Feb. 11, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the CANHelp Community Resource Center at 613 Gilmer St.
They are having an open house and a free community health fair. Hopkins County Memorial Hospital will administer total cholesterol checks, total glucose checks, blood pressure checks and body composition. Total Care will give free oxygen level checks and will be showing their durable medical equipment. Cooper Home Health will be giving Wii fit demonstrations.
Everyone is welcome to attend. During the Open House, CANHelp will be taking donations of the following: general hygiene items, household items, coats/blankets, cleaning supplies and old cell phones. For more information, please call 903-885-9797
Brashear on County Road 1119 has joined the rest of the county with our first sighting of a wild hog on Monday. Tom had visited with Randy Koon last week and he said that the hogs were heading in this direction. He knows his stuff, because there it was in our pasture. Let’s hope they move on quickly.
Tom was out and about last week and ran into some old friends of ours, Tim and Gwen White. They are building a house in the area and wanted to look around our fair community. Tim and Gwen, please stop by next time you are over in our neck of the woods.
Rain rain, go away! I guess everyone has noticed the big ruts in the pastures. Everyone is having trouble getting hay to their cows. Let’s hope the rain begins to let up soon. According to the groundhog, we will have six more weeks of winter. I am putting in my prayer for drier weather. How about you?
The Rally for “One Month to Live” last Sunday was amazing. They said that there were over 3,000 people. Let’s hope that 3,000-plus people will be influenced in some way to make a difference in our community, town, homes and county. Good luck with your own study.
Garden time again. New potatoes, onions, and greens are, according to my Dad, supposed to be in the ground by Feb. 14. I have actually planted barefoot before because it was so wet the mud sucked off my shoes. Well I can’t see the garden being ready to plant because Tom cannot get the tractor or tiller in to make rows.
Tom had Mr. Bob Cody tell him that he thought the ground was being seasoned by all of this rain. He said he had heard that every once in a while that the ground just needed to be seasoned. He also visited with Randy Koon. Randy thought he could only once remember it being this wet and that was 27 years ago. Well, I hope it is the last time for at least 27 more years.
Congratulations to John and Susan Mooney of Sulphur Springs on the birth of their daughter, Jentree Tolly Mooney, on Jan. 21, at Hopkins County Memorial Hospital. She weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces and was 20 inches long. She is the granddaughter of Henry and Billie Hill of Brashear, and the late Patricia Lynn Mooney of Brashear. Henry and Billie Hill are new to Brashear and are in the process of building a new home on Business 67 E. Your place is looking good.
Hope you are keeping up your end of the study, One Month to Live. Just remember to live passionately and be gracious to all.
