The heat con­tin­ues- it is a choice be­tween wa­ter­ing the grass or the gar­den so the grass will do with­out, with the high cost of water there is no ques­tion of do­ing both. I miss the days on the farm when water was plen­ti­ful and free. One won­ders how long be­fore the crops will be­gin to suf­fer if rain doesn’t come soon. How the fire­fight­ers must be watch­ing the skies and hop­ing for a three day rain!

If you en­joy horses, you will want to take in the Ver­dant Val­ley Draft Horse Com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day, July 29 at the Ver­dant Val­ley Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, at 12 o’clock noon. Any­thing to do with horses is an in- ter­est­ing event well worth at­tend­ing.

The Delia Slow Pitch Tour­na­ment is com­ing up in Au­gust, so con­tact Jeff Ras­mussen at 403 820 1721 to reg­is­ter a team or to find more in­for­ma­tion about the tour­na­ment.

Last Fri­day af­ter­noon the mem­bers of the Delia Drop In Cen­tre went for a drive to check out ‘Cat­tle­munns’ gift shop and the Li­lac Room. We found it was well worth the drive - from Delia go on High­way 9 to the Watts turn off and then 23 km. north. The drive it­self was in­ter­est­ing, past farm land and a chain of lakes un­til we reached the gift shop with its trove of trea­sures. If you have a chance to go it is well worth the trip. But the most im­por­tant part is the peanut but­ter pie or the sticky tof­fee pud­ding at the Li­lac Room. You will be go­ing back for sec­onds.

Thurs­day, July 20, is pot luck at the Delia Drop In Cen­tre, at 12 noon sharp. Cards are played on Fri­day af­ter­noons start­ing at 1 p.m. Cof­fee morn­ings con­tinue through the sum­mer on Tues­day and Thurs­day morn­ings, come for cof­fee and a visit with your neigh­bors.

Frances An­der­sen will cel­e­brate an­other birth­day on July 20, Blair Her­zog and Mel Met­zger both have a birth­day on July 24, Colin An­der­sen has a birth­day on July 29 and Brian and Nancy Stiles will cel­e­brate 27 years of wed­ded bliss on the 28th of July. Have an awe­some spe­cial day!
