Our garden is doing awesome. Tom has been busy cultivating, planting and weeding. He said all he needs to plant are cucumbers, cantaloupes, watermelons and okra. It is really looking good. We are eating onions, greens and radishes and are eager to be eating some fresh spinach.
I heard from Nancy Ferguson the other day on how the town Brashear got its name. She was once married to Billy Brashear. Their family had always thought Brashear was named after them. When Joseph Brashear surveyed the town, there wasn't enough money to pay him. So they ended up naming the community after him. Strange but true.
How many of you are blessed to get up every morning and have something to eat and a roof over your head? Well, I am blessed, so I want to offer something for those of you are blessed. Volunteer! Here are some of the ways you can volunteer here in Hopkins County: Big Brothers and Big Sisters; CASA; Children's Advocacy Center; Hopkins County Memorial Hospital Volunteer Auxiliary; and my favorite, Meal a Day in Sulphur Springs.
When I think of this storm this week, how many of us checked to make sure your neighbor was OK? I am guilty of not checking on my Mom until late afternoon. I heard that some places were without electricity, and I thought I had better check on her. I have a friend that is on a breathing machine, and she was struggling without electricity. So next time there is a storm, check on our friends and neighbors to make sure they are OK and have everything they need to make it. You never know if it might be you.
Snakes anyone? We seem to have an abundance of snakes around our pool this year. Help! When I fish, I do not like to have to watch so diligently for other critters. Don't know about you, but I just want to watch my hook go under.
Beautiful weather! My, oh my, I cannot believe how beautiful Tuesday was. May every day this spring be half as nice. The rain was wonderful on Monday but we do need more.
