Well, summer is really here: 80’s are fine but when the temp is in the mid 90’s, that is summer time. The trail ride was a success, even if it was a very hot day. I think there were about 45 horses and 16 wagons. There were several large groups from three different areas that had problems and they did not get to attend. Well, next year is already in the planning and it will be better and bigger. It was great fun. The vendors seemed pleased and the contests turned out to be fun. So now it is time to really start working on the Pig-Eye Daze for the first weekend in October.

The Bee Keeper was out again today to get the rest of the bees out of the gym. I think they got three hives out the last time and I think there were two or three they were working on today.

Time to remind everyone that Scotland community will have it’s First Saturday Breakfast on June 2. Y’all come have a good breakfast and visit to your hearts content. We serve at 8 a.m. and the price is still $6. Proceeds go toward to the Scotland Community Corporation.

Graduation is over and school is out. Now is time to find fun things for for kids to do this summer. If anyone is interested in painting classes call 592-3400 and see if Joyce has any openings in the kids or adult summer classes.

I see that it is time to be in the hay fields. When we first moved here from California and people talked about cutting hay, I ask why it did not smell like the alfalfa hay that I was used to smelling at hay time. I was not aware there were other kinds of hay. I still miss that sweet smell and still associate it with summer.

Have a great week and stay safe. Call 592-3935 if you have Scotland news and James will be sure that it gets into the paper.
