Highway 110

Dry and hot weather has a grip on us at the moment but we hope to get a small relief of rain and a cool down. The grass is drying up fast so please be careful of the fire dangers. Stay cool and don’t overdue when the temps are soaring high. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated.

Proceeds from this weekend’s annual yard sale go to the Highway 110 Fire Department. Mark you calendars and come on out!!!

Farmers and gardeners are searching the skies for any chance of rain. While rain may be lacking, my neighbors and friends have still been able to share a few vegetables with us. Okra is a favorite of many, and it reminds me of a funny thing my then 6-year old granddaughter Kenzie said one day. Her sister Tayler was sitting Indian-style in front of the TV and Kenzie exclaimed, "Look it’s just like y-okra!" Do you think maybe she meant to say yoga?

David and Lois Sikes had a great turn out last weekend in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary. The family is pleased and enjoyed their time spent with family and friends.
