I traveled to St. Louis last weekend to celebrate my grandson’s high school graduation. It was a nice drive, and I had a good time visiting and catching up with family who traveled from other states to join the celebration. But it was good to return home.
Rodger did a good job of holding down the fort while I was gone and worked the store even though there were just a couple of customers who came in while I was gone. One customer is the new owner of the old Penton place on Coosa County Road 98, just across the road from our place. I hope they stay longer than the last owner of the house and are a good addition to our community.
Our guinea hen is still on her nest, so no chicken snake sneak attack so far, nor has the raccoon or coyotes found her. Hopefully this will continue until the eggs hatch. I also found one of our ducks on a nest and am praying they also hatch. I miss my ducks, lost many to a neighbor dog getting in the yard, so ducklings will be exciting to have this summer.
After some sticker shock on the high quotes we received on the farmhouse foundation repair, however we had to bite the bullet and are praying for miracle provision, but work should start in about three or four weeks from now.
Tomorrow, July 1, is the “EVFD First Saturday” fundraising event from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the old firehall community center on Highway 9. Volunteers are welcome to help with all the activities. Otherwise please come and purchase, or donate, and fellowship with the folks that keep our community safe. Also, everyone is welcome to attend their first and third Monday training meetings, even if only to just watch the firefighters do their training.
Equality Performing Arts Center’s (EPAC) next event is “Open Mic Night” on Friday, July 16. While it is not mandatory, you are encouraged to bring a dish of shareable food for our “Potluck,” and if you can afford to drop something into the donation jar for the music, it helps keep the lights on. The EPAC provides free coffee, iced tea, water, and fresh-popped popcorn.
Rodger’s Shrubbery has a clearance sale of all remaining annual vegetables and herb plants. If there is that one last spot in your garden you want to fill check out what is on clearance and get a great deal.
