Some spots in the Mt. Zion area got rain Saturday afternoon, others had none. The corn and soybeans are looking good, hay still being baled, gardens are still producing; we are blessed in the Mt Zion Area.
Happy Birthday to Gary Kenney. We think he is older than we neighbors think he is. I guess he should know since he was there and we were not.
Over at the Robin Siegismund Farm, it is never boring. This week Belle was out in the yard and kept barking and barking until Robin went to see why she kept barking. When Robin saw why Belle was barking, Robin said “Belle what are we going to do?” Robin got the bug spray, four cans to be exact, and sprayed the biggest bunch of stripped bugs. They will not eat her garden now. Belle is happy to have some baby chickens hatching.
Dixie Peterson still doing therapy at Truman Lake Manor. Glad to hear from her, she is enjoying her mail.
