As always, thanks to Grover and his trustees for all their help. They are all so polite and friendly!
I don’t know what they’re in jail for and I don’t want to know, but I find myself thinking about how these nice young men could be in jail for a crime. Most don’t seem old enough to have gotten into trouble, although I know that’s a terribly naïve thought.
The trustees Grover brings are truly nice guys as far as we’re concerned.
I do want to remind food recipients to PLEASE keep those pink cards handy – stuck on the refrigerator or pinned to the door frame – someplace where you can be reminded of the day we’ll come with the boxes. And call me ahead of time if you can’t get there in time to get your box on the given day. We’ll work something out, just show up!
The wind is blowing pretty briskly today from the south. I wish that signaled a weather change. Rain would be great, as long as it wasn’t a drowner. Some cool weather would be heavenly.
As long as I’m sounding like the oldster I am, I read in my latest Smithsonian magazine on The Last Page an article by Ted Gup who comments on the communication revolution. After railing about cell phones, iPod, iPhones, et al interrupting church services, etc., he makes the comment that ‘not everything has to be shared the moment it is conceived. …….I say any thought that doesn’t have a shelf life beyond five seconds is best left unarticulated.” He goes on to say (and I assume it’s true) that when Alexander Graham Bell died in l922, phones all across North America were silenced in tribute.
Is there anything more annoying than to be in a quiet place when a cell phone rings? Most don’t just ring these days. They play The William Tell overture, beep horns, dogs bark, make horse noises.
People don’t seem to know how to turn the things off, either!
The grass on my end of the levee was cut, rolled into bales and collected a few weeks ago. On the way to Stephensville today that whole end of the levee was undergoing the same process.
Someone is really piling up a supply of hay.
There will be a second Veterans Park Farmers’ Market in Pierre Part on Saturday, Oct. 23, from 8 a.m. until noon.
We’re looking for vendors with vegetables, plants and flowers, along with all sorts of artisan stuff – cookies, breads, jams, jellies, pickled food, pies, photographers, etc.
We’ll have something for the kids, a bistro for the adults (non alcoholic) and live Cajun music.
For more information get in touch with me via the email address at the bottom of my weekly column. No after market things, please. You make it or grow it.
