    Garden planted. Tom has been very busy with planting. Mr. Black advised him to plant corn early, so he did. So, we now have potatoes, corn, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, onions, beets,

lettuce, mustard greens and Swiss chard. Bring the rain on. We already have turnips up at our house. Remember where you can get them, County Road 1119. This will keep me from having to put very much up in the freezer.
    Does anyone from Brashear have family or grandchildren showing in the Hopkins County Junior Market/Livestock Show? Give me a call. I want to make sure I mention their name and what they are showing next week.
    I attended the North East Texas Livestock Association buyers’ lunch yesterday and very impressed with the young people that will be showing this weekend. We are so fortunate to have such a program in our county to help support our youth. Thanks to Hopkins County Farm Bureau for a great meal cooked by Andy and Mary Lou Wright. If you have a little free time on Saturday, go by the Civic Center and see all of the animals that have been raised. There is a lunch of stew and then the sale will begin at 1:30 p.m.
    Has anyone noticed the new LED lights on two phone towers to the east and south east of Brashear? These lights are so bright that they scared me the other night; it looked like they were flashing in our bathroom. I thought there was a police car in my back pasture. I am just being curious.
    The roads are a little freer of cans in our neighborhood. I walked from Mr. Goodman's house on County Road 1117 to my mother's and then down County Road 1157 all the around to my house. Whew, a lot of cans!
    I guess we all have heard the news about the Post Office not delivering mail on Saturday. That is a small loss, but I sure do hope they keep our Post Office open here in Brashear. We are blessed with such a wonderful post mistress with Beverly Haygood. She is always smiling and pleasant. Thank you, Beverly, for making visits to the Post Office such a pleasure.
    Beginning on March 7, Tom and I will be starting our second session of Divorce Care. We will meet at the First United Methodist Church in the Administration Building from 6:30 p.m. to 8 pm. If you know of anyone that could benefit from this, please have them call me or Tom at 903-612-8806.
    Has anyone else noticed the stretch of dead trees along Spur 67? It is so sad that we have lost so many trees from the drought. Let's hope the projected rain in the next two days comes to pass. Our pool is still low. Need rain, please.
    Take time to thank someone for just being your friend. It doesn't take much to make someone smile, and I think we do not smile enough.
    Thanks for all of your news. Do not forget 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 CR 1119. Love to visit with you.
