Days Of Unpredictable Weather
B r r r and Quack quack, our recent days of unpredictable weather. After 80 and 90 degrees, it is suddenly “shivery” time; and the welcome all-day, steady drizzle, “duck weather,” no spotty showers to suddenly quit with the sun drying it up. Every drop soaked in, so much to be thankful for. Even with the dry spells, though, grass kept growing, proved by the piles of grass raked after mowing the lawn, as well as the fact that the cattle were laying down half the time, contentedly chewing their cuds, no hunger there.
Counting our blessings, we remember those much less fortunate, in the eastern states, too much water and heart-breaking loss of lives and possessions. In the West, no water with the same loss, lives and “everything.”
We have another member in our extended family. My nephew, Charlie Pitts’ granddaughter, Amanda Cleek, and Timothy Taylor, were married Sunday evening in Sassafras Springs Vineyard in Springdale. Tim has already been one of us as he has attended our family get-together. We wish them the best.
We were unable to attend Church Sunday, but we had the good news that Woody Rogers is home from the hospital, and doing well. Betty Thompson was able to return after a difficult period of time. They had really been missed, and are still in our prayers.
