    Monday’s showers reminded us of the song, “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head.” And we were SO rejoicing over that! Though it was good for the farmers, Monday’s rain did cause our crowd at Evergreen Outreach to be a little short.
    Donna Smith greeted us with her great collection of music. She doesn’t need the notes before her to play the piano – only the titles of the songs. We do enjoy and appreciate her.

  • Not long ago, I was traveling home from a visit with my daughter and I made a stop in Atlanta.
    While waiting in the gate area for the flight to St. Louis, I noticed two things that could be used for this article.

  • The Brownstown School District joined with the Sefton Unit Home and Community Education to collect pop top tabs for the St. Louis Ronald McDonald House.

  • The Barn Critters Doing Well…
    …in spite of the hot, dry temperatures.
    Smoky, the (adorable) little donkey, and his buddies, Lady, the mini-mare, and Sugarfoot, the little beautiful black stallion, do not seem to be bothered by the heat.
    In the past, if they showed signs of being too hot, we put a fan in their window, which helped. However, it hasn’t been necessary yet this year.

  • Story Worth Telling
    Some of you may remember a story published a few years ago, about my Godson, Seth Bergmann, who saved his grandfather’s life by running several blocks and getting help.
    Well, he again has done something worth telling. He turned 5 back in November, and he received money (from myself and several others) instead of a gift.
    After several failed promises to take him shopping (myself included), he told his mother he wanted to go shopping with his birthday money – grocery shopping.
