  • Is it possible that school starts next week? We hope you have all had a fun summer and that we will see lots of you in the library participating in all the fun stuff we have planned for you.  Our food series continues this week so please join us if you can.
    Here is this week’s suggestion for a mini-adventure in the library: Adventure #3 – Browse the travel section, find a place you want to visit, study up as you make some plans. Got a kid and an hour? You have time for an adventure.

  • The organization of thriving communities is characterized by the mobilization of its volunteers. For the past 100 years, the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service has been successful in recruiting, developing and retaining high quality volunteers of all ages.

  • No matter what the calendar tells you, summer is over.
    The weather has cooled, it’s supposed to be into the 40s this week.
    The Halls have gotten their lot cleaned and a bump-out trailer to live in now and are ready to rebuild.
    Ray and Wanda came in Saturday and made a survey of all the piddling jobs I need before cold weather, and Fay and Bruce are getting ready to start cutting their fall hay.
    Ann has one more week of work and she will be retired. Everybody is looking forward to fall and the activities that go with it.

  • My week has been fairly dull. The second week of the month is always my “off week,” no card games.
    The third Tuesday and the third Friday fell in the same week this month, so my social life is picking up. This week was filled with chores and mowing. We shall skip to Wanda’s news.

  • “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet”
    In the Shakespeare play, “Romeo and Juliet,” these words are spoken by Juliet and imply that a name doesn’t define the character of something. However, just the name “rose” conjures up the image of a lovely flower with a light delicate fragrance. So, perhaps names are significant and play an important part in our lives.

  • This has been a hectic week. I awoke Wednesday morning to a siren going up the road. I really didn’t wake up for that one, but in a minute or so there went another one, and another.
    By that time, 5:00 a.m., I was awake and went out on the screened in porch to see what was happening. I saw the sky to the left of my road light up over the tree line. Fire!
