Well has it been hot enough for you? Guess it wouldnt be so bad if the humidity wasnt so high. We did get our rain but we also got the terrible wind, which knocked our corn down here around Harmony and Canton areas. My son lives 3 miles south from Harmony and the corn down by his place stands as neat and tall as a toothpick. Here in town we got two inches of rain on Thursday. We didnt need it all at once, but guess we cant control the weather. Im glad we didnt get hail, I guess we can expect any kind of weather in July, hard rains, hail, wind, and even very cool. We all hope the bent-over corn will come back somewhat. Do I dare say, it could have been worse?

A little girl took much too long returning from the store.

When she got home her worried mother asked, What on earth took you so long? I was watching the Devils funeral, the little girl replied. What do you mean? her astonished mother asked. Well, I was watching the funeral cars go by, and a man next to me said the poor devil was only sick about a week.

Wedding Day
Modern weddings sure have changed
With womens lib and its effects
But though the bride writes in new rules
Dear old dad still writes the checks.

1920 - Dusenberg offered the first car with four-wheel hydraulic brakes.
1929 - Car radios were first offered.

Things do work out
Because it rains when we wish it wouldnt
Because we do what we often shouldnt
Because crops fail and plans go wrong
Some of us grumble the whole day long
But somehow, in spite of care and doubt
It seems at least, that things work out
So bend your trouble and meet you cares
For the cloud must break and the sky grow fair
Let the rain come down as it must and will
But keep on working and hoping .....

God Bless America. Let us sing it loud and clear
to tell the nations of the world we still have freedom here.
We know our efforts sometime fail
but when compared to all the rest
we are proud to s .....

Yes, we have had lots of rain, but being dried out must be awful. I heard one lady say, all I get done is paying the guy who mows my lawn, which he has been mowing twice a week. I wonder what she would sa .....
