Would like to express my thanks to all of you who wave and comment on how you enjoy reading about what is going on in Brashear.

We got 3.6 inches of rain on Saturday and Saturday night. The weather was really wild. I hope all of you were safe. Waiting to see what the weather brings us tonight. The rain has been good for the garden, and the radishes, greens, turnips, spinach and onions taste great.

We went to visit our friend Joyce Hale the other day and she told us about the problem she was having with VOLES. Well, we had never heard of them but we went and researched it on the Internet. They are cute little rodents but they are busy digging up her yard. She lives where there is sand. She asked us if we had any problem with them. We said not in our clay. Anyone else out there having problems with voles? Let me know, as she found out something that will help.

This Saturday the post office and mail carriers are having their annual food drive for the Northeast Texas Food Bank. As I understand it, you can take your food up to the post office or hang it on your mailbox for the mail carrier to pick up. Let’s all try to help out others.

Also this Saturday, I will be on the square across from the store with plants, seeds, and samples to swap. Come on by for a visit or to swap plants. I will be there around 9 a.m. until around 10 a.m. I am hoping for good weather. Just look for a crazy lady in a gray Ford pickup — that will be me.

I had hoped to have a rummage sale similar to the Dike Miles Long garage sale on June 6, but because of the swine flu, plans have changed. I will have to get back to you with another date for this event. Also, don’t forget that June 6 is the annual Brashear Cemetery Homecoming. I learned that Cumby class of 1964 is having their 45th class reunion on that date, too.
