  • I didn’t get to the mowing on Monday last. I kept holding out for more rain.
    I finally started early on Thursday and mowed till it got hot then finished on Friday. We did get a half inch on Thursday and a full inch on Friday evening. Everything is green and growing now. I’ll have to start my mowing routine again.
    We have had enough rain around this area to put water back in Elkhorn Creek.

  • After last week, this one has been relatively calm.
    We got some much needed rain but with it came the wind. Fay said it was very strong at her house. Their corn was blown over and dead limbs scattered across her yard.

  • Meet Charlie Moormon. The slender, whiskered gentleman from the Cincinnati Museum Center presented a program on riverboats at the historical society meeting July 12.  His love of the river and the steamboats which once crowded its expanse was evident as he relived the early days of steam powered boats and the vital role they played in the history of America.

  • Rain!
    We got almost an inch of rain on Saturday. It took all afternoon, but it fell beautifully, right straight down and soaked into the parched soil. My grass is turning green again. The overcast day yesterday helped. That was the welcome big news of this week but this next story is a close second.
