Thunder in the distance so I guess we're going to have another round of rain before nightfall. First day of June and there's an old saying if it rains on the 1st day of the month, it will rain for 15 days. We can't stand much more rain like we've been having. Farmers would probably agree as they are having a hard time getting all their crops planted. Wet spring and now it could be a wet summer in store for us with summer officially beginning on June 21st.
Haven't seen any junebugs or Japanese beetles yet but I know they'll show up pretty soon to pester us. The beetles really go after my maroon cannas and my crepe myrtles. Still have the sevin dust in our garage to take care of these intruders, when they arrive.
Seems there was this horrific accident where a vehicle took out a cow and was totaled just like the cow. Can't find out if it was that invisible cow or not as everyone is sort of tight lipped about the matter. The cow and the driver of the vehicle arguing back and forth (that cow only mooed at Christmas Eve- I did not know it could talk if its the same cow) about whose fault the accident was. The last words that the cow would utter on the night were, if I live through this, I'll see you in court. The cow passed away very peacefully after that.
June 18th will be Father's Day and that will be coming up shortly. Give dad a hug and a day he will always remember. You know what he likes so get that special card for your dad and a gift and be sure to take him out for dinner to let him know how loved and appreciated he is. Fathers provide so much stability in a family. Honor them as they work hard to provide the best for their family and want them to have it better than they did , when they were growing up. Always there to listen, help, and solve any problem that may arise. Count your blessings, if you still have your dad. Happy Father's Day!
Clyde and Bobby interested in that little green man statue I told you about in the last column. They are going to check out the place and try to purchase the statue. Your guess as good as mine as to why they would want the statue. I'm just hoping it doesn't show up at the "Gunter Reumion"
Hunter Underwood stopping by for a visit. Family all doing well.
Left out Gracie Bratcher's birthday for June. Gracie's birtherday is June 20th. Wishing you the best on your birthday, Gracie.
You might just want to circle these dates on your calendar in red July 21st and 22nd as that will be the 41st Annual Lions Super Pull of the South at Chapel Hill, Tennessee at the Lions Memorial Field. Each night beginning at 7PM all that loud noise (which is music to a lot of people's ears) begins with Heavy 55 Tractors (Diesel), Pro Stock Tractors, Mini Modifieds, 6200# 4WD Truacks and Unlimited Modified Tractors competing to sue who is the best in their class. Aubrey and I enjoyed this pull a lot. I think you will, too. Earplugs a big plus, if you plan on attending this big event.
Please keep these people on your prayer list: Carlon Melton, Mai Nell Melton, Edith Miller, Donna Lawson, Charlie Mai Daniel, Bobby Taylor and Denise Stanton.
If you have any news for the column, just give me a call at 615-563-4429.
