Brashear Bash is almost here! It is not too late to get a spot to sell anything. We will have the Family Life Center on Friday open early if you would like to select your spot and set up. You might even start selling to some of us who will be in and out. Tables are there, but if you want you can bring your own. I talked to someone last night who is going to bring her own but needs a lot of room. Fun, Fun! Do not forget all proceeds from selling spots goes to maintaining our Community Center.

Do not forget the youth will be having a “Walk for Jesus” 5K on Saturday morning. It starts at 8 a.m. Price to participate is $25. This money will go toward purchasing fans for people in our community. 

The youth will also be having a Baked Potato Luncheon with all the fixings, sponsored by Cumby Telephone. Lunch will be served around 11 a.m. Come help support them is this endeavor, too. This money will help with other missions they might take on this summer.

If you haven’t heard, rain is in the forecast. Please take time to pray for rain. All of the local farmers in our area are cutting their hay and the fields almost look scorched. Rain, please. Garden needs it too.

Donna Smith asked for me to ask for pictures of anyone here in Brashear that served in the military. She is involved in a big project for the 4th of July. Please watch my article for more news on this.

Brashear Post Mistress Beverly Haygood wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who gave over 730 pounds of food.  This was more than last year.  This food will go to the local food bank to help those in need.

P31 is growing. It has been so much fun working out with the ladies of Brashear, Miller Grove and Cumby. I have met so many great women who are trying to make a change in their life for the better. Me, I'm there to have fun and try to lose some of this extra baggage that I am carrying.

Lucy has not called me this week. Our roses are doing great, four o'clocks are blooming, and so are the moon flowers. 

Has anyone else been having trouble with coyotes? I know of someone on State Highway 11 that is looking for someone to help her get rid of coyotes. They are getting too many of their calves. Desperate measures are needed.

Congratulations to the Miller Grove track team and special congratulations to Nathan George on his first place at state. Quite an accomplishment!

I would like to remind everyone to please continue to pray for little Phoebe Carmody. She is doing some better. Prayers are needed. Thanks.

Would like everyone to stop and smell the roses and blooming shrubs around the area. If you roll down your window, you will love all of the wonderful scents that all around. Please take time to tell someone you love them. Remember to call me at 903-612-8806; email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or come on by County Road 1119. You will probably find us out fishing in the front pool. Until next week, may your week be filled with peace, love, and much joy.

Still need rain! I hope everyone is doing their best to pray for rain and soon. Our pool has dropped so much. Our neighbors, the Moore’s, are cutting hay but not sure how much more we are going to get around here if it does not rain. Garden needs rain too.

Lucy McCorkle called on Monday evening with this week's wildflower report. She wants us to look for the lemon paintbrush and drummond, which are wild onions with red tops. She hopes you are watching for these flowers. Our back pasture is loaded with regular Indian paintbrush. Beautiful.

This morning, I heard on KSST that a local man bought a calf and then turned around and donated it again. It was sold 15 times for approximately $10,000 to be donated to the West community. They said this was happening all around the state, too. Good things are going on to help others in need.

Please note that they are selling yard signs to help assist the Carmody family. Their 4-year-old daughter has recently been diagnosed with leukemia and is undergoing chemo. You may purchase a yard sign at Central Baptist Church; the funds will go to helping pay the medical bill for Phoebe. Please pray for Phoebe and the Carmody family.

Spring is here? Right! Lately it has been hard to tell with the wacky cold fronts coming through. My grandkids do not know how to dress. Well, maybe we can get a little bit of rain from this front. Garden has been back a little but coming on strong. We are eating a lot of greens right now. Good stuff!

Today we will start out with our wild flower report, brought to us by Mary Lucy McCorkle. She says you will find yellow blooms, similar to buttercups, in abundance. Mustard is up, Indian paintbrush, and blue bonnets are growing fast here in Brashear. If you take the time to look, you will find purple vervain, lockspur, blue-eyed grass, spiderworts and primrose are starting to bloom. Lucy wants everyone to take a little time and look at the beautiful growth all around us.
