Brashear News for June 17, 2010

We are fast into Dairy Festival Week. I hope everyone went out and enjoyed the parade. It was a great parade. The Ice Cream Freeze-Off was a great hit too. I got to taste several different kinds.

I want everyone to remember the Smith family in their prayers on the loss of Nancy Buckholt Smith. She was the last surviving child of Frank and Alice Buckholt. Aunt Nancy was the youngest of that family. She was such a great person, and I know she will be missed.

Prayers are also going to the Barrett family on the loss of Brenda Kay Farris Bennett of Brashear. Sharon we are so sorry for your loss.

Happy birthday to Dorothy Campbell, June 21; Carolyn Holly, June 22; Lorene Stone June 27; and Landry Darling and Dharma Kougher, June 28. May you day be filled with love, laughter and joy.

I recently heard that Pat Mallory at the Senior Citizen Center has put together a trip for seniors to San Antonio in October. If you would like more information, please call 903-885-1661. If you did not attend the Senior Citizen Prom on Saturday night you missed out on a great time. Several people have told me that Karon had decorated up the Senior Citizen Center so nice. It sounded like everyone came away with a picture and some with prizes won at Casino Night. If you have not experienced the Senior Citizen Center, stop by and Karon will make you feel very welcome.

Well, on the “Garden Update,” Tom told me not to say much because his garden is struggling. I think it has to do with me getting him away from his garden at the wrong time. He looks around at several gardens (Red George, the Peeks) and he feels that his garden is lacking. We have gotten a few things but not like in the past. Our squash plants are dying and the corn looks weak. We are hoping for a few ears but not sure. I usually put up over 100 ears every year but not this year. We give food to several friends so I just wanted to prepare them that the bounty is not there this year.

I want to let everyone know that they should be prepared if they are going to be out in the sun. We have hit those days where the heat can be dangerous if you are not prepared. Drink plenty of water, wear a hat, and take breaks from the heat.

Tom ran into Tom and Sue Potts at the co-op this morning. They asked if we were having problems with grasshoppers. We are not but they are bad up toward Greenview. Beware of the grasshopper!

I would like to wish my son and daughter-in-law a happy ninth anniversary.

Please call 903-612-8806; email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ; or just drop by County Road 1119 anytime. Don’t let the dogs scare you — their bark is worse than their bite. Take care and enjoy God’s majesty some this next week. The sunrises have been awesome this week.
