  • It has been a long hot week. Wanda and Ray went to Bro. Ken Underwood’s funeral last Monday at Buck Run church. After leaving Monterey, he served at that church for 12 years. Karen and Butch Lawrence’s son Andrew, who is now a minister at The Point church in Frankfort, spoke at his grandfather’s service. Wanda said he did a great job. I know it must have been hard for him.

  • Just when I think I’m not so bad, something happens to show me that I am so bad – bad to my rotting bones.

    There’s this person.

    For some reason I feel an intense, irrational, utterly petty competitiveness with her, even though we’re not competitors in any area whatsoever. Frankly, I don’t think she even knows who I am, but I sure know who she is.

    I make it my business to know her business and am giddy with glee whenever something goes even a little bit askew in her life.

    You can prevent hay bale or barn fires if you bale hay at appropriate moisture levels and monitor the temperature of recently baled hay.

    Generally, hay will begin a heating phase within one to two days after baling. During this time, you should monitor hay to make sure it does not reach temperatures that can damage the hay or lead to spontaneous combustion.
