  • Sunday was my 62nd wedding anniversary and Mike Raisor’s birthday. He was getting himself born while I was getting married.
    We had another one inch or so of rain this weekend. Bruce and Fay had just gotten started cutting when some of their equipment broke down and set them back a couple of days, then the rain started again. She did say they got their garden plowed and it was looking good.

  • A stone bench, engraved with a frontier scene, rests beneath a dogwood tree — both are new acquisitions that grace the yard at the Owen County Historical Society Museum. Given in honor of Scott Hardin, the dogwood tree was provided by Pat and Emerson Jones; and the bench was given by Scott’s son, Michael Hardin. Our thanks to both parties.

  • The answer is: Lamar Lundy.
    He was one of the “Fearsome Foursome,” the starting defensive end of the Los Angeles Rams in the 1960s.
    It’s one of my husband’s favorite sports trivia stumpers.
    He says most sports fans can name Rosey Grier, Merlin Olsen and Deacon Jones, but for some reason Lamar Lundy stumps them, although that’s the one name I always remember.

  • After 12 days of cloudless skies, we had about decided we’d prayed ourselves into a drought, but the rains did come back and we had about six-tenths of an inch last week. The dry spell gave the farmers a chance to reharrow their tobacco ground and get the plants in the ground. This is about as late as I’ve seen tobacco and corn planted. Oh, there was always the straggler who didn’t get his plants in the ground till the first part of June but that was the exception. The dry spell enabled John to get the rotten posts torn out of his screened-in porch and get it put back together.
