Zanoni news: May 16, 2018

We got another good rain. It puts the fertilizer in the ground, fills ponds and makes the creeks run through. 

I received a call from Virginia (Grisham) Kastning in Wichita on my birthday. I always talk to her on her birthday also. 

Our gospel meetings last week at Smith Chapel were well intended and a lot of Bible instructions were given. Both speakers, Ivie Powell and Jake Long, did a good job. We want to thank everyone who attended.

Richard and Fran came one evening for a visit. Richard and Paul went down to see where Lee VanCamp has been cutting cedar. 

The lime trucks are coming in again. More work!

Paul has been spraying sprouts on the Dwain and Betty Morrison place. 

Leroy, Dave, Dwain and Paul have been in the process of cleaning the fence around the Smith Chapel Cemetery. They got it all painted on Friday and did some tombstone work on Saturday. 

Leroy mowed Ray McDaniel’s yard for him this past week. Yards are growing fast. 

We have the oriole birds on our hummingbird feeders. I don’t like them at all. My rosebush and other flowers are blooming, and they can feed on them. 

Paul helped Wallie Goody work his cattle Thursday evening. Bob, the veterinarian, was out to help. Also, Mr. Searcy, from across the road. 

Paul and I are both trying to get over that old head congestion and cough. Have medication, but it takes several days for it to work.

We want to congratulate all the seniors on their graduation and also all the eighth graders. When I worked at the school, it was hard to believe how some of the incoming junior high students had grown during the summer. 

I hope all mothers had a good Mother’s Day with their family. 

Everyone stay well and keep the weeds out of your garden.
