Danny Hogan stopped by Sunday afternoon to visit and get some newspapers to put his freshly dug potatoes on. Doug Wingate stopped by the same time to visit.

Craig Sumner came to see Tex McKinley Monday. He said he had missed seeing him. But today was a good day to stop.

Craig and Justin, his son, are considered the hay men.

Haying this year has been a very hard thing to do, with rain about every day.

Tresea Brewer was at Wal-Mart where Dora Jean McKinley was. Looking real good as usual.
