Hello Hand Hills…the dry hot spell con­tinue here in the Hills. The har­vest is go­ing to be an early one but we are hang­ing in as all good sea­soned farmer/ranch­ers do. Look out for the party when the rain does come!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Len­festy on their re­cent marriage. Wayne and Kris got “hitched” at their ranch at Sun­dre on July 22. On a knoll over­look­ing a river, th­ese two long time friends said I Do. A bar­be­cue on Au­gust 12 sealed the deal with friends and fam­ily. Know­ing each other since the late 60’s shows that things some­times come full cir­cle, if one just waits. Con­grat­u­la­tions!

Another pre­cious baby girl has been born into the Shad­lock fam­ily. Eva May Shad­lock is the daugh­ter of Sam and Ta­mara and is a baby sis­ter for Cree. Con­grat­u­la­tions are head­ing out to Ce­real and to Margy and Lawrence just across the lake. She is a sweet­heart.

I had a chance to talk with Bud Beck on Satur­day. It is re­ally bad when you have to go to Del­burne to see your neigh­bors from the south. He wasn’t see­ing any­thing that he wanted to buy at that Farm Sale so was head­ing to Three Hills for an An­tique Sale. Hope you found a trea­sure or two Bud! Good talk­ing to you. He says that things are re­ally dry down his way but like all of us will just get thru it!

Speak­ing of the Farm Sale we came away a lit­tle more green than we are used to! Tony, yes I said Tony, bought a JD Trac­tor! The in­flu­ence of a cer­tain JD Me­chanic is bleed­ing thru into our Ranch! Spencer, Spencer, Spencer! I guess we are never too old to change!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to David and Shireylee Shields on what I am hear­ing was a very suc- cess­ful Farm Con­sign­ment Sale. I see that the driv­ing force be­hind this long stand­ing auc­tion tra­di­tion was there. Great to see you take in the sale Merna! Plans are in the works for a Spring Auc­tion so keep it in mind. With all those home­made pies that Shirleylee made I am sure that there will be peo­ple re­turn­ing just for that spe­cial treat!
