Congratulations to Jeremy and Leslie McCain on the purchase of their new home. They bought the Tom and Manella Lawhon home at the auction last Saturday. I understand they have a young daughter named Landry. Welcome to Adairville to all the McCain’s.
There were lots of people at the sale and lots of interest in the home and other beautiful things they had for sale. That was one of the prettiest homes and lots in Adairville I do believe. I know this young couple will enjoy it.
The estate of Doug Orndorff was also auctioned off and there was another big crowd. In July the home of Shirley Stratton will be auctioned off along with some furniture. There seems to be lots of properties changing hands.
Bible Schools are starting up along with camps. There are lots of things for children to do and participate in. Hope everyone finds some fun things to do this summer.
Joseph Violette, who owns the building that housed the Flower Shop will have vegetables in the parking lot there on Saturday. He said he will have yellow squash, zucchini, and red skinned potatoes. He may also have some plants/flowers from his mom, Katie. Be sure and go by and get you some fresh produce.
I look forward to getting some things. I love squash anyway you fix it. One of the best parts of summer is getting things from the garden. They just taste so much better than anything you can buy at the store.
Lots of ideas are floating around about how to bring Adairville back. If you wanted to open a business, now is the time because I truly believe we are on the brink of some good things coming to be. Hamilton Brindley and Victor Lecoffre completed their design for downtown. Brittany Law Is a student at Murray studying business law and wants to help in her capacity with anyone who wants to open a business or grow a present one. I know we have some that maybe have dreamed of opening a business and just afraid to take that first step. LEAD offers a $2,000 incentive for new businesses that could help anyone interested. There are all types of possibilities so call if you are interested and there is anything we can help with.
Coffee Bottom Girl
I don’t remember how old I was but my Aunt, Daddy’s sister, and Uncle, split up and Daddy let his brother in law come live with us because he didn’t have anywhere to go and he helped on the farm. His was a short man and so funny and told the funniest stories. His room was upstairs but he ate with us and just became part of our family. One of the reasons he and my aunt split up was he loved to imbibe occasionally and did a few times while he was at our house which I thought made him even funnier though Daddy didn’t agree. Daddy would get on to him every time saying one more time and you’re gone. Well, it wasn’t long until he was gone and of course children weren’t allowed to know the details about anything. I guess I probably worried Daddy to death until he showed me a crock with some stuff in it that looked gross to me but it was peach wine fermenting. That was why he was gone. Today I think what a waste that Daddy didn’t even let him have his wine he had worked so hard on.
A Hui Hou Kā’Kou
“May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand”
