Summertime is officially here and the once in a lifetime Strawberry moon has made it’s appearance. Too bad it didn’t happen during the Strawberry festival. We could have had a Strawberry Moon watch.

Farmers are at full speed ahead. I was going to Springfield one day a week or so ago. They were harvesting the wheat when I went by and planting the same field when I came back by. It amazes me how fast they work nowadays. I enjoy passing Rusty Martin’s house every day. He has sunflowers planted in front of his corn. Thanks for sharing the beauty Rusty.

I understand Carylene Stephens is doing really well after her hip replacement. She was transferred to Creekwood just a few days after surgery for up to 3 weeks. Keep her in your prayers as she works hard on her therapy.

Keep Jan Laurent in your prayers as she recovers from surgery. Thank goodness they found what was causing her pain and was able to take care of it. Get well soon Jan.

Donna Orndorff had knee replacement surgery. Keep her in your prayers as she recovers from this surgery.

Remember Samantha Allen and her family as they deal with the loss of her mother Angie Mullen who passed away Tuesday. Keep this family in your prayers.

Happy birthday to Danny Finch, Jimmy Laurent, Jamie Utley and others this month.

I saw on facebook the special Blake Trimble did at church on Sunday. He sang “A love without end-Amen,” and did an awesome job. Blake has a real gift and I know this brought tears to Jim’s eyes as he sang. Great job Blake.

Summertime always meant reunion time in my maternal family. Not really sure why we had a reunion because we usually got together every Sunday. Maybe it meant more food specially made for a reunion. Anyway it was definitely good food and good time. All my aunts and uncles were fun and usually something funny always happened. One particular year, one of the first cousins husband had bought a motorcycle. Well lo and behold, my Aunt Mae, who was the wife of the oldest decided she wanted to ride. She was maybe 4 feet 5 inches at the most so had to be helped on the bike. Well she started laughing as soon as he took off and laughed the entire time she was on the bike. That was one of those things that you just didn’t see coming. We would have never imagined her getting on that motorcycle but it is still talked about to this day. Sometimes our older relatives can really surprise you. What am I talking about, I am one of the older relative now. Have a great 4th of July.
