We are still dry. If it rains a little, the wind comes up and dries it up fast. Sunday morning it looked like a snow on the ground, but it was just the heavy frost. When the sun came out, it got real foggy. The wildlife have been around, including deer and turkeys. Also, the meadowlarks have been...
My friend Jerry Miller is expecting her two nephews coming from the Gulf Coast, one from Mississippi and and the other from Louisiana. They’re coming to bow hunt for the deer.  I enjoyed a Sunday visit and dinner with my daughter Kris and granddaughter Alexus. We visited in Dave and Karen Davis’...

Folks who are lucky to have a turnip patch have some good eating now. I miss having my own turnip patch that I always had for many years. In years past, we would pull the turnips this time of year, cut off most of the tops and bury them back in an area in the garden that had good drainage. We would...
We are still hoping for a good rain. In two little showers we got .03 inches in all. Every bit does help a little, and we are thankful. Paul saw the old airplanes that flew over one day. I had a visit with a guy from Oklahoma on Friday. It was Doyn Mallow, and he was here to attend a school reunion...
