Greetings from the loveliest corner of the world. Here is hoping all is well in your corner of the world and that everyone had a safe and happy Independence Day.
It was very quite on Hardy’s Hill as our folks who usually join Austin and me only had one day off work so we had to celebrate alone.
We had already had some delicious pork ribs that son Chuck has smoked on the weekend before the 4th and we had plenty of leftovers. But Austin said he missed the fact we had no fireworks or family on the 4th.We hope it will be different next year as the holiday will fall on Friday.
The Union County Master Gardeners meeting will be held on July 23 this month as the usual date we hold it on the second Tuesday of the month will not be available due to the county fair.
Call the Extension Office for further details. You might find me answering the phone as I am working in the office on July 10 and 11.
I would like to mention some July birthdays. I have five – count them – five family members. My first cousin Ruby Castleberry Johnson will be 90 on the 29th, daughter-in-law Tina will celebrate her 21st on the 18th. My great-niece Brandy Courson on the 21st, brother Jim Castleberry on the 22nd, sister Nellie Dawson on the 8th, friends David Greer on the 9th and Barbara Rutledge on the 7th. Here’s wishing all of the above a very Happy Birthday.
Now for some news of a more serious nature: there will be a benefit fish fry for little Taylor Goode at Spring Hill Baptist Church on the Waterford road on the 20th of July. Taylor Goode has had some very serious health problems so please come out and help this beautiful little boy.
Bill and Sue Rowland have been enjoying a two-week visit with daughter Deanna and children Sarah Grace ,Tyler, and Caleb from Ormond Beach, Fla.
While here they took some sightseeing trips. Some of the places visited were the home of Helen Kellar at Tuscumbia, Ala. and from there on to the Woodrow Wilson dam at the quad cities of Florence, Tuscumbia, Muscle Shoals and Sheffield. The group also toured many more beautiful parks and places of interest in the area.
Last week I told you about Quinn Massengill, son of state Rep. Steve and Deena Massingill, who will be going to the school of Math and Science in Columbus for the last two years of his high school.
Yesterday I found that another young man from our church is also going there this fall.
Brandon Crane, the son of Susan and Roger Crane, will also be going so again I wish to extend my congratulations to you both. I am sure we will be hearing more about the accomplishments of these fine young men.
The Massengill family are members of Ebenezer Methodist Church in the Blythe community.
This is all I have for this week but in closing remember that God is in the plan and watches over us at all times.
