    Rain! Just not at our house. Rained up the road just didn't make it to our house. Maybe today will be the day.

Much needed here in Brashear. I know that everyone needs rain so I want everyone to add to their prayers a good rain for the trees and shrubs are thirsty.
    We are working hard at First United Methodist Church this week for the clothes drive. Don't forget you are able to drop your unwanted clothes items at the Family Life Building in Sulphur Springs. You will find boxes at both the front and back doors. The clothes will help benefit our community for families shopping for back to school clothes. Remember that every item will be only 25 cents. So take the time to clean out your closets and drawers for a good cause. The clothes left will go toward three different locations: ICAN Thrift Shop, bins around the community for the D.A.R.E. program; and for League Street Church of Christ Benevolence Clothing Room.
    Dinner Bell is today, and I know it will be good. The people who are working this ministry are full of energy and are ready to serve everyone who needs a good hot meal. This month, they are helping feed the Boys and Girls Club.
    The food ministry here in Brashear is going well. I know the shut ins enjoy the food as well as the delivery people who bring the food and a smile. Thank you for you wonderful people.
    Yesterday while working the Clothes Drive, I visited with a man who used to pick cotton for his spending money when he was young. He said a truck came to town (Sulphur Springs) to pick anyone up to pick cotton and brought them home at the end of day. He said he also worked at a drive in owned by E.T. Passons. He has a lot of memories of old Sulphur Springs. I enjoyed visiting with him. Oh yeah, his name is Otice Jenkins. Thank you for some of your memories Otice.
    Here on County Road 1119, we are listening to the sound of big machinery. The owner has had equipment busy building him three new pools on his place. These pools are deep. I cannot wait to see them fill up.
    Did anyone else have an infestation of small black bugs last week? They first covered the sides of the house. We came home the next morning and the windows (inside) ledges, floors and furniture close to the windows were covered. We set off seven bombs in the house. No bugs for one day. Cleaned it up the bugs. What do you know the next morning, they were back. Tom sprayed outside three times and I think we are good for a while. The bug was like a flea but did not hop. So I was clueless. Anyone else have this problem? I hate bugs, especially in my house!
    The garden is no more. Loved hearing from all of you who wanted okra but now it is seed. Maybe have some more garden stuff if Tom decides to plant a fall garden. Knowing him, it will come.
    School is just around the corner and all of the usual excitement with that is here. I remember getting myself ready for a new school year. Let's take time in the next few days to pray for the students, teachers and administrators. Go forward and make this new year special for all of those mentioned.
    I guess it would not be me writing if I also do not mention Wildcat Football. This will be my 23rd year of the new football season. So excited, my daughter said the other day she was ready for high school football. I asked her if I had raised some twisted girls. Football is in our blood.
    Thanks for reading my column and sending me information. Please watch for information coming soon for the Brashear Bash this fall. Hope everyone is ready to get for this.
