Last week the rain did come leaving about half an inch of moisture, but a lot more is needed. The water hoses or soaker hose will be in use to keep the gardens going. It is so hot during the day that the plants look like a blow torch had hit them, they are so wilted. The good thing about having your garden you can feel safe in eating tomatoes and not have to worry about getting sick.

Phil B and Winnie Lou McCoury didn’t attend the San Saba rodeo this year. The first time to miss going in, gosh knows how long. In years past, they have attended in all kinds of weather and even battled wasp one of the years who had taken up residence where they usually sat. That year, the wasp won out and the McCourys sat in other seats.
